New recipe blog…

I have started a blog just for the GFCF recipes that we have tried and loved. It can be found at My GFCF Recipe Blog. Not an original title, I know, but I couldn’t think of another to save my life. I’m open to suggestions. LOL!

Love one another!

Spring rolls…a yummy GF treat!

Christine and I made vegetarian spring rolls for dinner tonight, and they were oh so yummy! I actually found the spring roll wrappers at our local Kroger. I had no idea how to use them though, and I asked my friend, Cindy, and she told me to soak them in water first, but not too long or they get too mushy. I still needed some direction on how to actually wrap the spring rolls, and, of course, I found a video on the internet. We stuffed ours with rice noodles, lettuce, cilantro, carrots, avacado, and sliced ginger. I also found a recipe for a peanut dipping sauce, and while it was good, I think that I’ll try another one next time. If you have a peanut sauce recipe that you love, I’d sure love to have it!

I also wanted to share this recipe for Frosted Banana Spice Cake that I made last night. I didn’t make the frosting for it though, but I can’t believe that it could be any more delicious that it was. We are bare naked cake eaters over here though, but it really was awesome! It is gluten and casein free, but I would have devoured this whole cake even before I was GFCF, it’s soooo good and so moist!

My camera is fried. If I had it I could show you how beautifully they turned out. Pretty good for our first try we thought. ;-)

I am hoping that Santa has a new digital camera for mama this year. I hate not being able to take pictures and videos of my babies! Wah!

Off to bed! Love one another~Yvonne

New recipe…

I just came up with this recipe tonight, after rummaging around the fridge, hoping to find something to throw together dinner, out of things we already had lying around. It has butter…so not fat-free or anything! :-)

3 zucchini’s cut into wedges

2 cups green beans

1 can of tuna packed in spring water

2 tsp. fresh basil (chopped)

juice from half of small lemon

1/4 cup of butter

salt to taste

1/4 cup of whatever cheese you have on hand

Saute’ it all (except the cheese) up in a pan until the zucchini and green beans are almost tender. Then I transferred it over to a corning ware dish and sprinkled the cheese on top and baked it at 350 degrees for 10 minutes. If you don’t like tuna, it would be awesome with chicken, and grilled chicken would be even better! I just didn’t happen to have any chicken. I think I need to go grocery shopping!

It only fed the four of us, so you’ll need to double it if you have a larger family! We thought it was very yummy, and Hubby even wished there was more!

Merry Christmas!

Josh is most happy eating the tree garland!  Cay looks beautiful though!

We had an absolutely wonderful Christmas eve celebration with Hubby’s family tonight.Every year someone in the family stands up before the Chinese gift exchange begins and reads something they have either found or written that tells of the true meaning of Christmas to them. Hubby was chosen this year and I cannot tell you how proud I was of him, he chose the topic of adoption, our adoption of Joshua-telling everyone more about him-and then tying that in with how we are all adopted sons and daughters of God. We are brothers and sisters of the Christ whom we await to come again, the Christ Child whose birthday that we celebrate tomorrow. My Hubby was so emotional while speaking to everyone, he has such a soft heart, I just kept thinking how I love that man. His love for the Lord has always, from the very beginning has been one of the most beautiful and attractive things about him to me. I thank God for him!

Everyone else is in bed, and I just finished preparing our breakfast, a baked french toast casserole that has a praline topping. Sounds delicious, but I have not ever made it before, so I really hope that it’s a yummy one! I’ll make some bacon and hash-browns to go with it in the morning. It’s a surprise to everyone, I didn’t want them to know what it is until they wake up in the morning. :-) Hubby grew up with his mama making homemade waffles every Christmas morning, but try as I might, I can get them quite right, I never get my egg whites fluffy enough or folded in quite the right way. So I am hoping this new recipe will be a hit, and that after almost fifteen years of married life that we can have a new tradition! Ha,ha! A gal can hope can’t she?

Christine and I have discovered a new love this week…the movie Seven Brides for Seven Brothers. What a hoot! We love it, and I can’t believe that we haven’t seen it until now. We have already watched it four times! Check it out if you haven’t seen it yet and let me know if you liked it or not. Of course, if you don’t like musicals it won’t be your cup of tea. :-)

Here is a Christmas funny a friend sent me from the comic Family Circus, I think I remember that feeling as a kid. :-)


Well, I better get myself off to bed with the others. We have another day of lots of family. I can’t wait, it’s one of the best parts of Christmas to me!

Love one another! I pray that you will grow closer to our Saviour in the coming year!

Much love,
