Cookbook Giveaway! Plus, my all-time fave gluten-free, dairy-free cookie recipe!

Together, we are on an amazing gluten-free, dairy-free journey. I’m so thankful for my kids and all of you!! With the ups and downs Isaiah and I have faced along the way, there was one constant in our lives that we could always depend on—these chocolate chip cookies. Making these gluten-free, dairy-free cookies wasn’t easy, but once I cracked the code and Isaiah took that first bite into a warm, melty cookie, his big smile said all I needed to know. I hope you and your family and friends have enjoyed them, too!

Gluten-Free, Dairy-Free Weeknight Menu Planner

Summer is when our family’s schedule always gets crazy!! That’s why I’m starting a Gluten-Free, Dairy-Free Weeknight Menu Planner —to make planning dinner one less thing to put on my to-do list. I know firsthand what it’s like to figure out what to make for supper every single night—especially when you’re feeding a family of hungry kids. It’s a challenge to plan what you’re making and time-consuming to shop for the ingredients. Plus, you need to please everyone! Not easy…so here’s your weeknight menu planner! Plus, a seasonal dessert to sweeten the deal.


Gluten-Free Ice Cream Sandwiches

My friends Peter and Kelli Bronski of the popular blog, No Gluten, No Problem, have just released their new cookbook, Gluten-Free Family Favorites: The 75 Go-To Recipes You Need to Feed Kids and Adults All Day, Every Day—a great collection of easy, foolproof recipes for those of us who would like to get dinner (and maybe even dessert!) on the table as often as possible.


Behind-the-Scenes of My New Cookbook: Silvana’s Gluten-Free and Dairy-Free Kitchen!

It’s a beautiful thing when everything falls right into place—a rare occurrence, especially when it comes to making a cookbook. It all starts from scratch. Just an idea followed by hundreds more only to culminate in a life-changing experience felt by all involved. I’m grateful to everyone who put their talent, time and energy to make my new cookbook a splendid, delicious reality.


Shelfie: A Gluten-Free, Dairy-Free Product Snapshot

These pretzels are surprisingly more crisp than your average, gluten-full pretzel. I always have them around for the kids (and me) to snack on plain and dip into homemade Nutella. I also like to coarsely crush the pretzels and use the crumbs as a coating for fried chicken cutlets or even as a base for pie crust.
