So I just wanted to share this moment with you all: the moment I became officially bronzed in awesomeness...
About a week ago my mom ended up on (sadly enough) another doctor-suggested diet that now eliminates not only gluten but dairy and an assortment of other items from her list of things she can eat. She was really heart-broken and frustrated. I, of course, jumped at the challenge. My geeking-out level hit an all-time high probably due to my obsession with British baking shows, cooking shows in general, and a taster who is amazed by just about anything I put before her. Granted, I don't have nearly the stomach issues she does- but I could not for the life of me understand why she was not as uber excited about this as I was.
Along with her normal meals, I wanted something she could snack on as well during the day and not just focus on huge gluten-free dinners she probably wouldn't stay awake to eat every night anyways (what can I say? I know my mother...). I made some spiced nuts with gluten-free pretzels, almond muffins, and these delicious crackers. I was super impressed with the mere idea of there being a cracker sitting in my pantry that I literally made first and foremost. Seriously, I was. The fact that my mom really loved them was completely an after thought. Kidding...sort of.
Grab a few for the kids as an after-school snack this week!!
