Breakfast: Pancakes
  • 1 cup rice flour
  • 3 Tbsp. Tapioca flour
  • 1/3 cup potato starch
  • 4 Tbsp. dry buttermilk powder
  • 2 Tbsp. sugar substitute (I used cane)
  • 1 1/2 tsp. baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp. baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp salt 
  • 1/2 tsp. Xanthan gum
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 Tbsp. canola oil
  • 2 cups water
  • cinnamon


  1. In a bowl, mix or sift together the rice flour, tapioca flour, potato starch, dry buttermilk powder, sugar substitute, baking powder, baking soda, salt, and xanthan gum. Stir in eggs, water, and oil until well blended and few lumps remain.
  2. Heat a large, well-oiled skillet or griddle over medium high heat. Spoon batter onto skillet and cook until bubbles begin to form. Flip, and continue cooking until golden brown on bottom. Serve immediately with condiments of your choice. 
Snack: Rice cakes
A quick snack like rice cakes it great for busy moms. They're light but take the hunger edge off just enough to make it to lunch. My kids love them and so do I and yes they are GF.
Lunch: Chicken Noodle Soup
  • 8oz. Dry Egg noodles
  • 2 cooked and cubed chicken breasts
  • 1/2 lb. whole baby carrots
  • 1/2ib. celery diced
  • 1/2 medium onion
  • 32oz. Organic chicken stock
  • 1/2 tsp. rosemary
  • 1/2 tsp. bay leaves
  • pinch of pepper
  • pinch of salt
 Boil chicken until it begins to fall apart. Then in large stock pot warm up chicken stock then add carrots, celery, onion and spices. Once chicken is done add it to soup stirring continually. Then add egg noodles-follow cooking directions for egg noodles. Then throw in a few bay leaves. Serve.

Dinner: Tacos
  • 12 all corn taco shells
  • green leaf lettuce cut up
  • 1 medium tomato
  • 1/2 medium onion chopped
  • 1 cup cheddar cheese shredded
  • sour cream
  • salsa
  • 1 ripe avacado
  • 2 lb. of ground turkey
  • chili powder (the more the hotter it is/I use at least 1 1/2 Tbsp)
  • cumin, dash
  • lemon pepper, dash
  • onion powder 
  • garlic powder
  • Red Hot hot sauce, couple squirts
  • 1 4oz. can diced green chili peppers
   In a large frying pan cook and chop up ground turkey when almost cooked add a 1/4 cup of water and spices (chili powder, cumin, lemon pepper, onion/garlic powder). The more you add the spicier it will be. When done fill taco with meat and any other veggies, cheese, sour cream, or salsa you like. Enjoy!
My recipe is a little different from hers because I don't always have the time to fry up the corn tortillas but both are great!

A Mother's Prayer

Lord bless my home and anyone who enters. Lead me daily so that I am always aware of You! Whether educating my kids, cooking or cleaning may my attitude always be that of a servant. Give me the words to guide my children to You, to know You, Your character and love You, Lord. Please teach to have patience and to always be learning. Lord mold me through each stage of life so I am continually growing and pursuing You no matter what. Lord I want to be a great mom and wife and I know that if I look only to You for help that I can accomplish this, the love for my family that I desire to show them. Lord I'm amazed by You and I love You. Amen.

Full of Life, Full of Love

"The spirited child-often called "difficult" or "strong-willed"--possesses traits we value in adults yet find challenging in children. Research shows that spirited kids are wired to be "more"-by temperament, they are more intense, sensitive, perceptive, persistent, and uncomfortable with change than the average child." It seems as though we have three, and they are very much like me. What does this mean? I need to be compassionate, consistent, confident, controlled, all with a gentle yet firm approach. Yes my plate is full.

Motherhood: A rigorous training ground

What an awesome responsibility mothers have to their children. Cultural stereotypes promote the idea that giving birth miraculously endows women with kindness, compassion, and goodness. But we all know better. Many of us can witness that we are made more aware of our weaknesses and impatience after becoming mothers than we were before. Godliness and generosity are not prerequisites of giving birth; they are characteristics that God hones and whittles into our character over time. Motherhood provides a rigorous training ground where we can display practice and model the disciplines of love, honesty, and compassion before our children. --Rebecca Laird
