Enjoyed Our Visitors

Kyra, nephew Paulie, and my mom left yesterday after visiting since last Tuesday.  It was so nice seeing them, especially baby Paulie.  This was the first time I had saw him in person since he was born 5 months ago.  He is such a pleasant little man, not fussy at all, and so happy.  Thanks Kyra for making the trip with the little guy.

Kyra and my mom spent a lot of time here at our house, but they also visited with GG and took Hailey out and about with them.  My dad stopped over on Thursday to see Paulie.

While our guests were here I made sure to keep their bellies full with yummy food.  I cooked breakfast, but I mostly took care of the dinners (Gluten-Free of course).  Some of the things I cooked included homemade pizza, an apple pork tenderloin dinner, rosemary balsamic chicken kabobs w/ mac n cheese, and apple crisp for desert.  Below are a few of the photos.

All in all, I think Kyra, Paulie, and mom had a great time and we sure hope they come visit again soon.

Gluten-Free Peanut Butter Chocolate Pie

I have noticed that most gluten-free bloggers have wonderful photos and recipes for their visitors to Oooo and Ahh over… well the other night I was searching for a GF peanut butter pie and stumbled upon Simply Gluten Free the personal blog of Carol Kicinski. Carol’s blog most definitely fits into the Ooo and Ahh category. Carol’s Peanut Butter Chocolate Pie looked amazing and so I decided to give it a try.

It was really easy to make and tasted great. The only thing I would like to try is adding more peanut butter in the recipe. Below are some photos of the finished product.
