Gluten-Free on a Budget (Giveaway!)

by inspiredrd on January 23, 2015

When I started my journey with celiac disease, I was completely overwhelmed. It turned out that I needed three things to get me through the rough start: 1) Education 2) Supportive family members, and 3) A gluten-free community.

One of the first people I met in the gluten-free community was Chandice Probst. Her passion for this community is exceeded only by her sweetness of character. I am incredibly thankful for her friendship and guidance the past few years, and I am so excited to share with you the release of her first cookbook!

Gluten-Free on a Budget

Chandice and her mom Tana have written a cookbook that transforms everyday family recipes into gluten-free favorites. They also teach you how to cook on a budget which is a challenge for any gluten-free family.

Gluten-Free on a Budget

I have already dog-eared my copy of the book and can’t wait to make some of these goodies:

  • Chicken Tikka Masala and Naan Bread
  • Mongolian Beef
  • Tin Foil Dinner (for camping)
  • Crepes with Sweet Cheese and Strawberries
  • Buttermilk Biscuits (pictured below)

Gluten-Free on a Budget

You can grab your own copy of Gluten-Free on a Budget on Amazon. I am also giving one away to a lucky reader below!

May we not be silent

January 19, 2015
We will have to repent in this generation not merely for the hateful words and actions of the bad people but for the appalling silence of the good people.

This quote is an excerpt from a letter that Martin Luther King Jr. wrote in a Birmingham jail on April 16, 1963.  I probably read it in school at some point, although I don’t remember being so humbled and challenged as I was when I read it again last night. Whether you’ve read it before […]

Thankfulness Lately

Thankfulness Lately |

It’s been a rough couple of weeks, which means it’s time to practice an attitude of gratitude. Because there is always light to be found even in the darkest days. Some things I’ve been thankful for lately… A pup who never fails to put a smile on my face. Sunsets and silos. A night out […]

Setting the stage for creativity and learning

Setting the stage for crafting & learning |

If I lived in a giant house I would have a craft room where the kids could go crazy and whip up wonderful designs and inventions all day long. But I don’t. If I was Martha Stewart, I would have a perfect craft organizational system with color-coded bins. A place for everything, and everything in […]

Goals > Resolutions |

I’ve never been much for New Year’s Resolutions. Mostly because they are usually about trying to stop doing something. And when I tell myself to stop doing something, I just want to do that thing. A lot. All the time. It’s all I can think about. So a few years ago, I started setting New Year’s […]

Cheering each other on

Cheer each other on in marriage |

Today is our 13th wedding anniversary. Jeff and I were married on a cold January day in Norman, Oklahoma at a beautiful church. It was still decorated for Christmas, complete with poinsettias everywhere and a giant Christmas tree. Thankfully, our color scheme was red and white, so it worked. These were the days before digital photography, […]

Goals and Grace |

My one word for 2014 was Quiet. Over the past year, I have learned how to exhale, sit with a cup of tea, and just be for a moment. Quiet was exactly what I needed. This year, what I need more than anything is grace. I’m tired of beating myself up at the end of the […]

We were this close. This close to escaping Christmas break without getting sick. Yesterday Joe started feeling hot. Today he was so pitiful, he couldn’t get off the couch. Tonight Leila’s head started hurting. I can only assume Jeff and I are next. So as we finish off the year with humidifiers and oil diffusers […]

I’m excited for this week. I’m looking forward to taking a break from social media, snuggling in close with the ones I love. Watching movies, sipping tea, telling stories and nibbling sugar cookies. I’ll be back at the end of the month with the year’s most popular posts and a look ahead to next year. (I’ve already chosen […]
