About

Hey everyone, my name is Megan and  I celebrate life through food

I live in Erie, PA.  and am a (not totally recent) college grad with a degree in World Languages and   Cultures.   Love languages and I taught Spanish for a couple years but my true love is definitely food.  I’m currently a stay at home mommy to my four beautiful children whom I still have at home with me.  I keep my sanity by cooking and baking.  I would love to go to culinary school someday and really hone my craft but for now I will be happy with this.  Oh, and since Celiac Disease runs in the family, gluten free is kind of my thing.  I, myself, am not Celiac, but through circumstance I happen to eat pretty close to gluten free.  And it is still wonderful.  So whether you came to this blog because you were searching for gf recipes or because you’re one of my super nice friends checking out my blog I know you will enjoy the recipes either way.

    Megan,
    I wanted to make gf snowballs (Mexican Wedding Cakes) for Garrett and Renee. How can I do that? Do you have a recipe or do I just substitute the flour? Thanks for your help.

  3. I have never made Mexican Wedding Cookies so I can only guesstimate how these will turn out but here goes.

    The above link is to a Paula Deen recipe. Her stuff’s always good. As far as substitutions go, since this recipe requires a LOT of flour I would recommend using a GF flour blend. You’ll need about 8 oz/245 grams. You can buy the pre-blended stuff at the grocery store. Bob’s Red Mill makes a blend I think. It’s usually in the “whole foods” section. Or you can make your own but since I don’t think you do this very often that might not be economical. You’ll also need Xanthan Gum. About 2 tsp for this recipe. This is also something you’ll find with the gf stuff at the store. It’s expensive but necessary, especially since these don’t have any eggs in them to bind. If you don’t think you’ll use it again you can always give the rest of the bag to Renee or Garrett for Christmas. I’m sure they’d be thrilled :p

      Meagan,
      I never tried this last year but I think I will be doing it this year. I have a number of friends who are gf and I know they would love this. We now have gf store in town so that might help. I am also looking for other gf christmas cookie recipes if you have any. Thanks for all your help.
