My Gluten-free Kitchen's April 2014 Favorites

5 gluten-free recipes I drooled over this month:

  1. I keep looking at this photo of grain-free twisty flax sticks from Allergy free Alaska. What a fun idea to have on the table when you have company over!
  2. I can’t believe that I still haven’t made any of The Baking Beauties’ gluten-free doughnut recipes. Her latest gluten-free baked vanilla doughnuts reminded me that I really need to soon!
  3. I definitely want to try making this 5-minute healthy strawberry frozen yogurt!
  4. I’ve invited myself over for dinner at Toni’s house for the next time she makes these gluten-free salmon tostadas. I’ve been thinking about this recipe for weeks now!
  5. Looking for a fun new appetizer or family-friendly snack? These Pepperoni Pizza Nachos from Wishes and Dishes caught my eye! My boys would love these! Just make sure to check your chips and pepperoni for any hidden gluten, otherwise this recipe is gluten-free as written.

5 favorite things I bought this month:

  1. Prior to making my gluten-free Spring Snack Mix, I had never purchased Glutino Gluten Free Yogurt Covered Pretzels. After trying them, they are definitely a new favorite indulgence! Pretty sure you’ll find a bag of these in my car on all future road trips!
  2. My newest cookbook purchase is Breakfast Beauties: 25 gluten-free breakfast and brunch recipes from The Baking Beauties. Full of beautiful pictures and delicious recipes, this is one you will want to get!
  3. I joined the Spring Style Challenge from Get Your Pretty On and bought all sorts of new spring clothes as a result. It has been helpful and fun! I’m so glad I paid the $10 to join. She’ll be starting a summer challenge soon and I’ll definitely be joining that too!
  4. As part of the challenge, I bought wedges, and fell in love with how comfortable and cute these wedges from Kohl’s are. I ended up liking them so much, I bought them in both the tan color and the black color.
  5. I bought this silver necklace at Target and have loved how it goes with so many outfits!

5 favorite things I read this month:

  1. This article is from last year, but is just so dead-on and hilarious. I, too, am the Worst End of School Year Mom.
  2. I like this Mom’s article about celiac disease and why you should get tested for it and have your kids tested before going gluten-free. I’m in total agreement with that!
  3. If you haven’t followed the saga about what happened with one of my favorite gluten-free flour blends, Jules Gluten free flour, make sure you read about Jules struggles here and how to support her new business, gfJules.
  4. While I didn’t “enjoy” reading about this accident, it was such a good reminder that I have to pass it on.
  5. The Productive Person: A how-to guide book filled with productivity hacks & daily schedules for entrepreneurs, students or anyone struggling with work-life balance was one of the best time management books I’ve read. I really liked the example daily schedules throughout the book. I felt like anyone could really find a proposed schedule that fits their needs and energy levels. It definitely motivated me to want to come up with a good daily schedule for myself.

Even better than coming to my house would be to go to El Tovar at the Grand Canyon and have them there! The view is much nicer! They are delish.

I will definitely keep that place in mind if I’m ever that way, Toni!
