Homemade French Toast Sticks

I'm so glad that everything is finally unpacked and I can actually cook again! I went for about a month without being able to cook or bake anything, which for some people doesn't mean anything, but for me, it does! 
I like to experiment in the kitchen sometimes and this is one of my experiments. I'm very pleased with how they turned out! 

I used Kinnikinnick Hot Dog Buns for these, but any kind of gluten free bread should work. Preferably a thicker kind that can soak up the eggs. 

I cut the hog dog buns into fourths. I only had two buns, but that still gave me enough for a meal and even some leftovers! 

Here's what I used:
-2 hot dog buns
-2 large eggs
-1 tsp cinnamon
-1/3 cup milk
-splash of vanilla
-1 Tbsp syrup (I used pure maple syrup)
-1 tsp powdered sugar
-Cinnamon/sugar mixture

Whisk all ingredients, except for the cinnamon/sugar mixture, together. 

After dipping the hot dog bun strips in the egg mixture, either roll your strips in the cinnamon/sugar mixture or if you prefer something less messy, sprinkle the cinnamon/sugar mixture on the strips after they are placed on your baking sheet. 

Bake at 350 degrees for about 10-15 minutes. Just make sure they don't burn. 

Served hot with some maple syrup and powdered sugar....there's nothing better!

Gluten Free Sausage and Pepperoni Pizza Casserole

I'm so excited about my new blog "look"! I hope you all like it as much as I do! :)
I can think of no better way to welcome the new change than with an awesome recipe. This casserole is so quick and easy it's sure to be a hit!  This is another of Marshal's Great Aunt Jean's recipes. Once again, I hope I did it justice. 

Here is what you need: -1 lb sausage -12 in gluten free wide noodles, cook as directed (side note coming) -2 14 oz jars gluten free pizza sauce -2 cups (8 oz) shredded cheddar cheese -6 oz sliced pepperoni
Prego's Pizza Sauce is clearly labeled gluten free on the back of the jar. 

We have used this pepperoni a couple of times so far with making our own pizzas, and we love it! 

I have used De Boles pasta in the past and loved it and this time was no exception!  Side note: The recipe calls for you to cook the pasta before putting it in the casserole dish to bake. As you can see from the picture, this pasta was ready to go in the oven, no boiling require…

Pie Five Pizza Co. Restaurant Review

Since we have moved back to Nashville (yay!!), we have had the opportunity to eat out more than we used to. There are a few places that we feel safe eating at, and Pie Five was just added to that list.

I have to admit, I was skeptical at first about how (or if) the employees would be trained about cross contamination. The menu does have a disclaimer about the company not being able to guarantee cross contamination, which I was a little leery of since I seem to be pretty sensitive when things are made in cross-contaminated areas. 
Well, let me tell you...this company exceeded my expectations. 
First, let me explain how Pie Five works. It's kinda set up  like Subway. You walk up, place your order, tell them what toppings you want on your personal size pizza, and they put it in the oven. You keep walking down to checkout where you get your drink and by that time, your pizza is ready! It's really a pretty cool system. 
So, some things I noticed:
1) When I ordered, as soon a…

Our Gluten Free Experience In Jamaica

For our honeymoon, we traveled to Negril, Jamaica. We stayed at the Couples Resort in Negril.  For traveling, I packed an assortment of Vans Bars and some Glutino Lemon Bars. 
We arrived late Sunday afternoon at the resort and we were starving. We ate at the Heliconia Restaurant for the first time. 

I ordered grilled chicken with some kind of salsa topping with french fries. It was very good. Definitely hit the spot.

Marshal had the steak with a really great sauce (that I can't remember the name of right now) with french fries. 
After we talked to our waitress about how we don't eat bread or anything with gluten (which we're not sure if she understood or not), the chef came out and talked to us to tell us what we could have off the menu. My chicken was supposed to come with a side of creamed potatoes, but those contained flour so he made me french fries instead. 
We would eat at this restaurant a couple more times for lunch and dinner during the week. 

Breakfast everyday was at t…
