Don't have a costume for Halloween yet? Don't have a ton of time? All the good costumes sold out? Here are two super easy, albeit not super intense, halloween costumes that only require some puffy paint and a t-shirt!
Want to be a quirky "monster?" Get a purple t-shirt, and purple and silver puffy paint.
How about a superhero? You will need a blue t-shirt and blue and yellow and red puffy paint.
I cut out a superman symbol online and traced it on to the t-shirt using a sharpie.
Fill in the yellow. Let dry.
Fill in the red and let dry. This may take a day or so.
Take a few minutes of your day and read this letter that was written by an uncle of Chuck Jones (the writer for the cartoon Wile E. Coyote and Road Runner) to his children after the death of their family dog, Teddy. You are guaranteed to laugh and tear up a little, I did at least.
Today my littlest sister, Jill, turned 18! We celebrated with a one foot tall rainbow cake, chili, and root beer floats.
Jill is the taller, smarter, and prettier of us sisters, but I try not to hold that against her! She's going big places in life and the next 18 years are sure to be just as busy and just as successful as her first 18.
With the tenth month of the year comes not only that sharp sent of cold but also a desire to be warm. Sweaters, socks, and stews are on my mind.
My Nana use to make the best beef stew but she didn't really have a recipe as so much an idea of how she wanted her beef stew to come out. Since just winging it really wasn't a great option I looked up a few and found this one that I liked the sound of.
The only thing I did differently was add a ton more liquid. Oh and a ton of potatoes because I love them in my stew. This recipe is already gluten-free since it uses corn starch in place of flour. Since I added more liquid I added a lot more corn starch but don't do it! Bad idea. It was fine the first night, but after an overnight refrigeration it turned into a gelatinous mess.
I also made a delicious, delicious gluten-free apple crisp using this recipe.
Up there with pizza, doughnuts and Bertucci's rolls, one of the things I miss most are cinnamon rolls. With all of those foods, as good as you are gonna make something, they'll never be how you remember them.
Well I was really craving cinnamon rolls and decided to give the Jule's Gluten-Free recipe a try. I am a huge, huge fan of Jule's Gluten-Free Flour and this is another recipe that proves how great of a product it is! I am not being compensated by them in any way either, unfortunately so because it is a pricey product. But I've said it before and I'll say it again, you get what you pay for.
This recipe is a little time consuming and does call for a lot of products that you may not have but it was worth it once they were done. Original recipe can be found here: Jule's Gluten-Free Cinnamon Sticky Rolls
Use wax paper to roll out the dough, eliminating the possibility of contamination due to a dirty counter.
Use plenty of flour between wax paper and dough so you don't have to "patch" your logs of dough.
If you've a sweet tooth, serve with a side of cream cheese frosting.
