Holiday Cake for Gluten free Lovers, #Scrumptious


As the holidays comes around, we sometimes forget about those who have allergies or who needs gluten free food. I have several close friends who are gluten free and are concern with what they are eating. I am aware some of the food we eat when we visit the family are not as great as when we cook at home but for manners sake as my children say,"We eat them since it is one day!"

I feel happy when my visitors and/or my guest enjoy what I make for them and the main reason I go out of my way to cater to each individual as if they were my children. I give the food they are able to eat. Sometimes I notice that the other guest eating the food and they enjoy. What can I do, just make enough for all to enjoy but I do let them know what they are eating. There are times that others do not realize what they should eat. It is nice to know what we are eating and let others feel special even if they have special needs. I hope you all create special memories with family and friends.

Gluten-Free Chocolate Frangipane Tart


1 1/4 cups ground almonds
1/3 cup confectioners' sugar
1/4 cup light brown sugar
1/3 cup Dutch-process cocoa powder
1/2 teaspoon fine salt
1/4 teaspoon baking soda
6 tablespoons cold unsalted butter, in pieces

4 eggs
2 sticks unsalted butter, at room temperature
1 cup granulated sugar
1 cup ground almonds
7 ounces bittersweet chocolate, melted and cooled
1/3 cup dried black mission figs, halved (5 to 6 figs)
Creme fraiche, for serving, optional


1. For the crust: Pulse together the ground almonds, confectioners' sugar, brown sugar, cocoa, salt, and baking soda in a food processor. Add the butter and pulse until the dough just begins to come together, but is not sticky or wet, about 10 pulses. Remove the blade and turn the dough out into a 10-inch tart pan with removable bottom. Carefully press the dough evenly into the bottom and up the sides of the pan. Refrigerate at least 15 minutes. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F.

2. For the filling: Separate the eggs and whip the whites until they just hold stiff peaks. In a separate bowl, cream the butter and sugar. Add the egg yolks one at a time and mix until smooth. Stir in the almonds and melted chocolate. Gently fold in the egg whites. Spoon into the chilled crust.

3. Bake until the chocolate just starts to set, 15 minutes. Press the figs gently into the filling in a circle around the tart and continue baking until slightly puffed and set throughout, 20 to 25 minutes. Cool. Cut and serve with creme fraiche, if desired.

Gluten & Allergy free Products: IAN's Friendly Food for Life #ChristmasGuide2014

Hello One & all,

Hope you are all having a fabulous time with the family in anticipation of the THANKSGIVING Gathering. It is not easy to give our children nutritious food when they have allergy and gluten. We received some delicious children's meal from IAN's and so easy to complete with side meals or mixing them together with other sides.

We have been having some really hectic days with all the birthdays and holiday festivities coming along and all the sports competition happening, there has not been much time to do a complete meal so we go searching for some delicious and nutritious food to give to the children. Well, we were sent several boxes of IAN's gluten free WHOLE GRAIN Authentic SOUTHWEST Breaded Chicken Tenders and SMOKIN' SWEET BBQ Breaded Chicken Nuggets. Well, IAN's has the complete meal if you decide to impress the crowd on a picnic or family get-together and also delicious for lunch. There is also a French Bread Pizza and Scrumptious Sweet Potato Fries and many more delicious choices.We sure know what alternative there is to have a nutritious meal that is allergy friendly and gluten free. It is a great solution for our family.

Ozzy is a paramedic and an entertainer who was visiting and was happy to see that the family is eating well and has a solution for a busy and working class family. He is aware how much a family suffers when there is allergy and gluten is involved. What I like about IAN products is that it is both allergy friendly and gluten free, this sure calms my fears of any allergy flaring during the Holidays. IAN's Gluten Free Whole Grain has NO:

  • wheat or gluten
  • milk or casein
  • eggs
  • nuts
  • soy
You can purchase IAN's allergy friendly and gluten free products online and see the variety they have in stock. Their customer service is fantastic. It is kid friendly for any age, the girls had so much fun while they had their meal finding words with the alphatots. I wish I had those when they were younger but am sure it will help the younger kids to recognize their alphabets with the alphatots that is so delicious!

Fabulous Gift: ANiMALZ Headphone #ChristmasGuide2014

Hello one and all,

Are you all enjoying the shopping for the children at this time of the year? Have you been shopping
at the mall? I know many are online doing most of their their holiday shopping. It sure will save lots 
of time for most parents.

¿Todos, disfrutando de las compras para los niños en esta época del año? Han estado de compras ¿en el centro comercial? Sé que muchos están haciendo la mayoría de sus compras navideñas online. Seguro nos ahorrará un montón de tiempo para la mayoría de los padres.

I received the most practical gift which most children uses daily with their electronic games or toys. The ANiMALZ headphones by Retrak  are lovely gifts as it can be used for many reasons and changes our family environment. Our family will be picking up some family members for the Christmas holidays which means we will be on a long family road trip. It sure will be a rather peaceful ride as the parents will be able to listen casually  to our musical preference while the little ones are watching movies or listening to their dvds of their choices. We will now have many interesting rides and more smiling faces when we have some casual discussion instead of heated disagreements.  At home there is a bit more personal time listening to music or playing games, just lovely.

He recibido el regalo más práctico que la mayoría de los niños usa a diario con sus juegos electrónicos o juguetes. ANiMALZ por audífonos de Retrak son regalos encantadores ya que se puede usar por muchos motivos y cambiara nuestro ambiente familiar. Nuestra familia recogerá a algunos miembros de la familia para las Vacaciones de Navidad el que significa que haremos un viaje largo por la careterra. Seguro será un paseo bastante pacífico ya que los padres serán capaces de escuchar nuestra musica de preferencia mientras los pequeño mira películas de sus opciones con los audífonos. Tendremos ahora muchos paseos interesantes y más caras sonrientes cuando tengamos un poco de discusión ocasional en vez de desacuerdos acalorados.

 Collect all six. 
 What I enjoy about this headphone is that it have Volume-Limiting Technology; 85 db protects young ears and has an Over-Ear Design whereby nothing enters the ear canal  which is important for our younger generation. In addition, it contains Tangle-Free Storage that pull cable to extend and retract and is Kid-Friendly Design and Durability. What is greatly appreciated is it has Lifetime Warranty and is a great gift for children Ages: 3 and over.

Coleccione todos los seis. 
Lo que me gusta sobre este audífono es que tiene la Tecnología que limita el Volumen; 85 db protegen oídos jóvenes y tienen un Diseño del Sobreoído por lo cual nada entra en el canal del oído que es importante para nuestra generación más joven. Además, contiene el Almacenaje sin Enredo que tira el cable para extenderse y retraerse y es Diseño amistoso con los niños pequeños y adolescentes y tiene durabilidad. Lo que enormemente se aprecia: esto tiene la Garantía de toda la Vida y es un gran regalo para niños pequeños y adolescentes tambien: 3 y más.
You can purchase ANiMALZ headphone at any of these stores, enjoy your holiday shopping.
