Gluten Free Play Dough Recipe (don’t eat)

0708151709As a stay at home Mom I find it hard to come up with crafting ideas. So, I decided to head to the internet for some Play Dough recipes. As you know, or maybe don’t know, most store-bought play  dough is made with Wheat Flour. Well, for me even playing with it will cause a terrible reaction. So, after some research online I decided to give this recipe a try!It was super easy and very quick to make. The website and recipe can be found over at celiacfamily.com it is titled “Easiest Gluten – Free Play Dough Recipe”

Here it is!

Ingredients:

1 Cup White Rice Flour

1/2 Cup Cornstarch

1/2 Cup Salt

1TBS Cream of Tartar

1-1/2 TSP Vegetable Oil

1 Cup Water (hot but not boiling)

Food coloring if youd like

Directions:

Mix all dry ingredients together in a medium size pot

Add vegetable oil, then the water and continue to mix until combined

Heat Pot on stove over low heat for about 3 minutes stirring continually with a silicone spatula

When dough starts to pull away from the sides easily transfer dough to parchment paper, let cool before you work with it

Kneed in food coloring into dough until you get the color you desire

To store:

I wrapped each ball with plastic wrap and put into a ziplock container so they don’t dry out! You can also keep them in an air tight container 🙂

Have fun!

Easy Eggs

DELICIOUS

DELICIOUS

This is one of my all time favorite egg dishes. My husband makes the best eggs and this morning I thought I’d return the favor!
I’m all about the dishes that are super versatile. Dishes you can make your own and change-up during different seasons, different veggies and add your own little personal touches!

This is a Kale and Feta Cheese Easy Egg dish!

Ingredients:

1 Cup steamed Kale

1/2 Medium white onion chopped

5 Eggs (serves two adults a toddler and some left overs)

2TBS Milk

Salt/Pepper to taste

2 Ounces Feta Cheese (I’m using garlic and herb feta)

Olive Oil spray

Directions:

In a large skillet (WITH A LID) spray with olive oil, preheat on medium low for 2 minutes

Whisk Eggs, and milk together, set aside

In preheated skillet add your steamed kale and saute with your chopped onion

once onions become translucent (3 minutes or so) add in your  eggs.

Cover and cook on low for about 15 minutes.

Once eggs are set, meaning they don’t look runny or jiggle when you move the pan add your cheese and cover again for 5 minutes, until cheese begins to melt.

Take off heat and allow to cool slightly, slice and enjoy!

I don’t usually add any extra salt or pepper until I put my eggs on the plate because the cheese is filled with flavor.

I hope you enjoy this recipe!

Until next time,

Happy coking!

Cheesy Sloppy Joes with Fries

This looks incredible, give it a try!

Busy Gluten-Free Mama

So … earlier this week, ground beef was on sale, and sloppy joes with baked French fries sounded really good. …

If you’re gluten-free, you can still enjoy sloppy joes, just a little differently. Of course, you can purchase GF sandwich rolls/buns, but if you don’t have those, you can top a baked potato, tortilla chips, or french fries with your sloppy joe mixture along with some shredded cheese.

Manwich® brand sloppy joe sauce is gluten-free (as far as I read the label), and it makes for a quick & easy midweek meal served along with salad and/or fresh fruit.

Here’s an easy version of Cheesy Sloppy Joes with Fries using Manwich® and ground beef topped with shredded cheese, and it’s pretty tasty too!

First, bake GF frozen French fries in oven according to direction.

Then top fries with sloppy joe mixture and shredded cheese.
