Gluten Free Garlic Cheddar Biscuits

GF Cheddar Biscuits

You are going to love these biscuits. They remind me of the biscuits from Red Lobster only gluten free. Easy to whip up too.

Gluten Free Garlic Cheddar Biscuits


3/4 c. brown rice flourIMG_6337

3/4 c. arrowroot starch

2 tsp. baking powder

1 tsp. xanthan gum

1/2 tsp. salt

3/4 c. shredded cheddar cheese

2 eggs

1/3 cup olive oil

1/4 c. almond milk

2 TBS. butter, melted

1 tsp. garlic powder


Combine brown rice flour, starch, baking powder, xanthan gum, salt and shredded cheese in a bowl and set aside. Mix eggs, oil and milk together and pour into the dry ingredients. Mix with spoon until combined.

Now by the spoonful drop your biscuits onto your greased cookie sheet and bake in a 350 degree oven for 10-12 minutes. Meanwhile melt your butter and mix in the garlic powder. As soon as the biscuits are done remove from oven and use a pastry brush to slather on the melted butter garlic yumminess and enjoy!

Makes 8-12 biscuits depending on size.

Have a lovely day my friends.

Let’s Cutesify It!

I like pretty things. I like making not so pretty things, pretty. Why can’t functional things be pretty? They can and don’t let anyone tell you otherwise. *smile*

As most of you know (if you follow my FB page) I’ve been working hard on transforming my craft/homeschool space. There is going to be a series of posts leading up to the reveal but it’s been a labor of love, that’s for sure.

But one thing I can show you now is the little project that I did to make my work table just a wee bit cuter.

First, here is Exhibit A, my work table.IMG_6960

Here it is after it’s been cutesified.


Didn’t it just make it super adorable? It goes so well in my new space. All I did was buy me some oilcloth, cut it and have my hubby staple it to the underside.


I love that oilcloth wipes off so easy and is so durable. I have some left over that I’m going to use to make placemats for my kitchen table. I’ll show ya when I’m done.

Have you used oilcloth in your decorating before and if so for what?
Have a lovely day my friends.

Blogging Old School Style

It’s been a very long time since I was tagged in something and even longer since I’ve participated but because my long time blogging buddy Debbie tagged me I knew I had to do it. Plus you might learn something new. A lot has changed since I first started blogging 7 years ago.

Let’s see, I write what I do because it’s my life. I love reaching out to people. I love encouraging people. And on occasion my life will probably make you laugh and who doesn’t want to laugh? Oh and who knows, you stick around long enough and you might learn something. *smile*

I think everyone’s blog is different in some way simply because we are all different. No one has the same life with the same circumstances. That’s what I love about blogging. You get to see glimpses into the lives of people to whom you’d probably never meet otherwise.

Right this instant I am working on getting my craft/homeschool room together. We’ve been doing a lot of painting and moving around of rooms lately and mine is the last to get done. Don’t worry you’ll get to see it when it’s all finished.

Hmmm….I never really thought about what my writing process is. I usually just wing it. I know that’s not very technical or thought out but it’s true. Some posts are thought out but a lot of them are spurred from the moment. But those usually end up being my best ones.

One thing I wish I could go back and change are pictures. If you go back far enough in my archives the pictures are really bad. LOL! But it’s the nature of the beast I guess.

So now I pick a person to whom I want to pass this on. I’m going to pick a person who has a lot to offer on her blog but doesn’t get recognized like she should. My bestest Kathy over at the Bluebird’s Nest. She is so very talented. She sews, cooks, bakes and has the cutest boxer on the planet. Why don’t you stop on by and say hello.

Have a lovely day my friends.

The Post Where I Talk About Going to the Bathroom.

So when I thought about writing this post I was like, “Seriously? You’re going to write a post about the one topic that most people try to avoid? I mean it ranks right up there with religion and politics.”  Then I said. “Why not? These people need to know this?” To which I replied. “Let someone else tell them!”  To which I ignored and started writing this pot.

Yes, my friends this post is about going to the bathroom and I don’t mean walking into the bathroom and brushing your teeth. I mean “going” to the bathroom. More specifically, #2. There I said it. Sheesh.

Now if you’re like “most” people when you go in to do your business it probably doesn’t smell all that great. In fact it’s down right unbearable sometimes. But I’m here to help. I discovered something and I knew I had to share my findings with my peeps no matter how embarrassing the topic.

I had heard about some stuff that was actually invented for this purpose. You spray it in the toilet before you do your business and it will absorb the odor of….well……your bm, but the price was a little steep for this gal. So while shopping at BJ’s the other day I stumbled across these all natural air fresheners for around $10-15.00 for 4 of them. And upon further investigation I realized they are 100% natural oils. This was about the time the light bulb came on.


I grabbed one of the cans, more specifically the orange scented one and made my way to the bathroom. I sprayed it into the toilet BEFORE I did my business and I didn’t smell a darn thing. Nadda. Nothing. Zippo. It was about as awesome as it could have been under the circumstances.

I’m pretty sure this will revolutionize the world. Seriously. Like world peace and everything.

You’re welcome.

And for those of you who don’t live near a BJ’s, they do have them on Amazon here. (affiliate link) But they are a bit more expensive. However I’m sure they will last a long time as they are 7oz.
