25 Homemade Popsicle Recipes (Gluten-Free)

I recently posted about our summer love affair with ice cream over on my Instagram account. When the warm weather hits, my kids LOVE cool treats. And when they visit Grammy, my kids indulge in some gluten-free, dairy-free ice cream. We are loyal forever and always to...

20 Homemade Cracker Recipes

If you have children, you are familiar with… cracker addictions. Am I right? Or is it just my kids? In theory this is fine, because crackers can be topped with all sorts of healthy and yummy spreads. Hummus or guacamole? Raw cheese or nut butter? There are so...

Gluten Free Mac and Cheese

Summers are not for cooking.  Am I right? The days are long, hot and my kids are only interested in swimming or playing with their cousins.  It’s hard enough to wrangle them to the table to eat…so the idea of spending hours in the kitchen cooking up new...

Teeny Cookies (Gluten-free)

Funny story about these “cookies.” The recipe is adapted from Rebecca Katz’s “Legal Cookie” recipe in the cookbook: The Cancer-Fighting Kitchen. I don’t need to tell you again how much I love her cookbooks (One Bite at a Time and...

Sweet Potato French Toast (gluten-free)

Yesterday I awoke to my kids chowing down on French toast made by my (awesome) husband.  Both kids were content and eating happily (not always the case at breakfast time around here) and I started reflecting on why I don’t make French toast, like, ever.  And...

Pumpkin Spice Bake (gluten-free)

So you all know by now that I am not a chef. I don’t play one on TV, on the internet, or EVEN pretend to be one in my own kitchen. Nope. Not me. That statement begs the question, “WHY does Kula Mama post RECIPES on her website if she’s not a chef?” Good question. I...

Toddler-Friendly Green Smoothie

A simple way to give your child’s daily meal plan a super nutrition boost is to introduce daily green smoothies.  The earlier you do this the better because a child’s taste buds start developing before birth!  Pregnant and nursing women should eat a wide...

6 Ingredient Popcorn Chicken (Gluten-free)

Despite my good intentions, there are nights I forget to plan anything for dinner. It happens. On those days I find myself rummaging around in the fridge at 4pm when the kids are cranky and it suddenly occurs to me that I have no idea what to feed them for dinner. Oh,...

Cinnamon Apples with Bacon (Gluten-free, Dairy-free, Paleo)

Apples are something we eat a lot of in our house.  Hot, cold, juiced—it doesn’t really matter, we all love them.  Currently my daughter’s go-to snack is baked apples with cinnamon.  She loves them and could eat baked apples 3 meals a day if I let her. Stewed or baked...

Homemade Crackers (Gluten-free, Dairy-free)

My son eats crackers every day at school for his snack.  While this isn’t exactly my first choice when it comes to his mid-morning nutrition—we don’t have a lot of other options here in Argentina.  Well, maybe cookies.  And if the choice is between...

Apple Pancakes (gluten-free)

I find these pancakes delicious (almost TOO delicious).  My children found them delicious one glorious morning a few weeks ago.  Until my very picky son said, “Heeeeeyyyyyy, MOM, are these apples in here?”  And that was the end of apple pancakes in our house.  Once...

Butternut Squash Hash Browns (Gluten-free, Dairy-free, Egg-free)

Spring is here (sort of) and I’m posting about squash, a winter vegetable.  I guess this just goes to show you how slow things are moving around here with two kids.  I’ve had this recipe sitting on my computer for a few months now.  Better late than never...

Protein Cookies (Gluten-free, Dairy-free)

Where oh where has Kula Mama gone??? Well… Kula Baby is now a big brother!  We welcomed his little sister about 6 weeks ago. I’ve re-entered the world of frequent feedings, diapers changes, swaddling, and cat napping to salvage some semblance of sanity. I...

Quick and Easy Broccoli Soup (Gluten-free)

It seems odd to post a broccoli soup recipe in the middle of summer, but I hear it’s pretty cold in Seattle these days so this one is for all you mamas turning the heat on at night 🙂 We had a head of broccoli that NEEDED to be used tonight so I decided to whip...

Kula Baby’s Favorite Milkshake

This “milkshake” is Kula Baby’s new favorite summer treat.  He thinks he’s getting some sort of chocolate-flavored ice cream and I’m in no hurry to tell him otherwise.  This smoothie is a perfect blend of protein and sweet.  It’s...

Veggie Lo Mein

I’ve been playing the role of a single parent the past few nights while my husband racks up frequent flier miles for work.  He rests his head each night in a Weston Heavenly Bed, while I try to hold down the fort with a 2 and 1/2 year old who constantly wonders...

Chicken Croquettes (Gluten-free, Dairy-free)

If there is one thing that really gets me fired up, it’s paying for overpriced organic “kid” food when I know I can make it myself.  Don’t get me wrong, I’m all for the convenience of pre-made food when I’m in a bind.  We keep our...

Simple Hummus (Gluten-free, Dairy-free)

I am a hummus addict. For real. Not a day goes by that I don’t dip a veggie or spread a cracker with this delectable treat.  Early in Kula Baby’s culinary adventures, I learned to use hummus as a protein source for any snack involving his beloved cracker. ...
