We were traveling at the end of June/beginning of July, so I decided to put my favorites from both months together in one recap post. Make sure you enter the giveaway at the end!

My Gluten-free Kitchen's June and July 2014 Favorites

My favorite finds:

I found so many yummy gluten-free treats during the Bay Area gluten-free bakery hop that I did in June. Ready to go again!

Newly gluten-free? Check out these 10 tips for starting a gluten-free diet.

Hubby and I had an amazing time on our very first trip to the eastern part of the US. I particularly loved Pennsylvania and will post about all of the yummy places we ate there soon.  I can tell you that I’m still thinking about how much I enjoyed my first ever cannoli at Grandma’s Grotto. It was so incredible!

I’ve already told my hubby that I REALLY want one of these gluten-detection dogs

or one of these portable gluten scanners (Can you imagine how handy this would be?!)

I bought these sandals before our trip and love them!

This dress from Target is perfect for summer travel. I was super comfortable in it and got so many compliments too!

This Lego representation of the 50 states is one of the coolest things I’ve seen!

I need to try out some of these: 6 Things the Most Productive People Do Every Day.

On these very hot summer afternoons, my kids have been watching these 3 movies over and over: The LEGO Movie, Rio, and Rio 2

This article served up just the right mix of conviction and encouragement for me as a mom.

 

5 recipes I want to try soon:

Grilled Pesto Chicken and Tomato Kabobs – Perfect for using up our cherry tomatoes!

Gluten-free Vanilla Wafers – Boy have I missed vanilla wafers!

Gluten-free No Bake Cinnamon S’mores Bars – I can make these and not smell like a campfire!

Homemade Fudgecicles – I love chocolate!

Gluten-free Blueberry Peach Coffee Cake – Our peach trees are full of peaches so I can make this soon!

 

and now for the giveaway:

Thank you so much for including my s’mores bars in your favorites! Are you in the Bay Area too? I didn’t realize that! Maybe we can meet up.

Hey Andi,
I couldn’t pass up those S’mores bars!
No I’m not in the bay area. Just visited this summer. I usually visit there once a year or every other year. Maybe we can meet up on a future visit!

I won’t enter the giveaway since I have no one to send back to school this fall, but wanted to say great favorites list. I enjoyed the 10 tips post and loved the state-by-state Lego pictures. (I’m not sure what it is about Lego photos but I always find them so hilarious!)

Thanks Molly. My boys are Lego fanatics, so that stuff always catches my eye. This was a fun find!
