Today is the first day back to school for my kiddos.  Back to the daily routines, and now it is especially important to have a menu plan!  No time to run to the store for missing pieces to complete dinner.  My menu plan helps me to grocery shop effectively, which saves time AND money.  Win-win.

  1. Hi, we avoid the same allergens and one of my new years resolutions is to make more allergy free foods for our family to enjoy together. Would you be so kind to share your cranberry apple coffee cake and apple sausage muffin recipes? I find your blog very inspiring! I was also interested in your sweet potato hash recipe? What kind of wraps do you use for your wraps and enchiladas-do you make them? And what about your bread for french toast-what type of bread do you use? Thanks so much for your time and all of your help!

  2. Thank you for the kind words! I have updated the menu plan to link to a few more of the original recipes (including the sweet potato hash). Keep in mind that the original recipe is my starting point, I often make modifications from there. Someday I should blog more of them! I use the apple cake recipe from Learning to Bake Allergen Free by Colette Martin and add cranberries. I do buy my wraps at the store, from Earth Fare, but I can not remember the brand right now! Grrr. Bread I always make from scratch. I use the Everyday Bread recipe on this blog when my family is eating gluten, and a recipe from Gluten Free Goddess when we are not. I'm sorry I can't seem to post links in the comment section... I'll work on posting more of the updated recipes that I use! Thanks for checking in, I hope that helps with some of your questions!


Always happy to hear from you, but please remember to play nice!
