me (and you of course).  My son is allergic to soy so he cannot enjoy this because of the 
mint chips.  The only amount of soy in here is from the soy lecithin but I don't want
 to risk it and honestly he really doesn't know he's missing mint.

with flavor along with the perfect chewy texture, any good rice should have.  I've been looking
quality black rice for a long time.  Since all rice isnaturally gluten free, I had high hopes that
Mr. N would tolerate this without problems.  And he did.  In fact, he loved it so much he
ended up having too much of a good thing (fiber) if you get what I'm sayin' ;-)

Raspberries and summer are just one of those things that seem to go hand in hand.  I fondly remember being invited over to my neighbor's house to go raspberry picking as a child.  If you didn't already know, I grew up in the country on 4 acres of land.  My parents just happen to live in the middle of no where so they could keep their big pets i.g. horses.  And then, because there was soo much land, why not get a donkey, a rabbit, a handful of dogs, some cats and adopt some kids too?

Soft Gluten Free Hamburger Buns and DIY Gluten Free Flour Mix


Hey, wait just a minute!  Don't just pfffft at these "boring" hamburger buns.  They'd be anything BUT boring.  These is a big, HUGE deal people.  Food allergies can be horrible to deal with because so many simple things become complicated.  For instance, these simple gluten free hamburger buns took almost a year to develop, yet any one who isn't allergic to wheat or eggs could simply walk into a grocery store pick some up.  They wouldn't need to read labels or call the manufacturer and ask about cross-contamination.  With so many more people being diagnosed with food allergies each year, we all need something simple.  I've worked to make these buns as simple as possible, including that no mixer is required to make these.
