    Easy Chickpea Nachos for One – Gluten Free and Vegan

    When my twins were little, I pretty much lived on nachos. They were fast, easy, and they felt more like “real food” than the random pieces of toast or handfuls of other things I could quickly grab while chasing babies. Twenty two years later, I still love nachos. I have more time now, so I make better food choices (mostly), but when I treat myself, I want it to feel like a treat. These nachos are naturally gluten free, and switching out the cheese for a non dairy cheese shred like Daiya cheese makes them vegan. I also add chickpeas because, in addition to a protein boost, they honestly add…

    Gluten Free Paper Bag Popcorn

    Almost everyone in my house is over 5’5″. Almost. Five of the six of us are. My four year old daughter is not. She’s not even over four feet tall. She’s also very observant of the fact that she’s the very smallest of our family. In fact, she’s started telling strangers “I’m the only child in my family,” which confuses strangers who then try to figure out who all the teens are and what our relationship to them might be. It’s hard being so small in such a big family. Big people can do a little more, play a little harder, push themselves a little longer. A tiny person has…

    I love it when I find gluten free recipes that are quick, easy and inexpensive and still make me look like an absolute kitchen genius.
