My Favorite Gluten Free Restaurants

Hey Cupcakes!!!
If you have Celiacs, Food Intolerances, or Food Allergies you know the struggle of eating out. I am not speaking for all locations of these restaurants, just the ones I have been to. I also only have gluten, milk, and tree nut allergies so they may be less accomadating to other allergies. That being said, here are my favorites:
• Chick-fil-a . This is one of my favorite restaurants to go to. I have been to locations all over the USA  and I have only gotten sick at one location. I always order grilled nuggets and/ or fries. Their fries are fried in a dedicated fryer so there shouldn’t be any cross contamination.
• Mellow Mushroom . I, like most teens, love pizza! However it is very difficult to find Gluten and Dairy free pizza! The one near me has  a dedicated Gluten Free prep station and oven.
• Outback Steakhouse . This is a nicer restaurant, so it is good for special occasions. I will normally ask for the steak without the special seasoning just in case. They also have a chocolate cake which I have heard is really good. I have not tried the cake because it has milk in it.
• Jasons Deli . This is a good place to go if you want a Gluten free sandwich. They have a gluten free prep area at the one I go to.
• I haven’t been to one that has this, but, my dad told me about one that has several different types of Gluten Free bread.
• P.F. Changs. They have a Gluten Free menu here. I have been to this place a couple times and for me it is really a toss up if I will get sick or not. Sometimes I get sick, sometimes I don’t. It might just be the location I go to because I have heard really good things about P.F. Changs from other people.
I hope this list is helpful!

Fabulous Friday

Guten Tag!!!

Today is another very Fabulous Friday! Recently at my youth group there was a Disney themed night. I dressed up as Ariel from the Little Mermaid. I even dyed my hair red. It was a very fun night! They handed out prizes for the best dressed but I didn’t win anything 😕. I am not that sad really because everyone that won deserved it! Two girls dressed like the Na’vi from Avatar. They told me it took them 4 hours to dress up and get their face paint on and everything. One of my good friends dressed like Mary Poppins, she also won a prize. I wish I had gotten photos of everyone but I accidentally left my phone at home.

I have blogged about this outfit before. I wear this outfit ( minus the fork and hairdye) pretty frequently out in public at the mall and other places. This is one of my Favorite outfits I own. I love how light and summery it is! I also love the colors Teal and Purple go so well together!!!

In Love,

Deborah 💖

P.S. The hair dye is temporary. My hair is no longer red :(.

 

Gluten Free Fudge Brownies

Hallo Cupcakes!!!

This is one of my favorite recipes since I have been eating Gluten Free! It is also Dairy and nut free. They are so delicious and very fudgy.

~~Ingredients~~

2/3 cup cocoa powder                                                   1 3/4 cups sugar

3/4 tsp salt                                                                        1/2 tsp baking powder

1 cup GF flour (I normally use King Arthur)            3 Eggs

1/2 cup oil                                                                         2 TBSP water

~~Directions~~

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Grease a 9 in square pan.
  2. Whisk together dry ingredients.
  3. Stir eggs, oil, and water mixing until blended. Mix in dry ingredients.
  4. Spoon the mixture into pan, smoothing the top.
  5. Bake brownies for 35 minutes, until a toothpick inserted into center comes out with just a few moist crumbs.
  6. Enjoy! I love them warm and gooey but they are also good cool. The brownies firm slightly as they cool.

I love this recipe a lot. Many times I take this to potlucks and such. I got this recipe from King Arthur Flour. It is on the website and the back of the GF flour bag.

In Love,

Deborah

Gluten Free Peanut Butter Cookies

Hi Cupcakes!!!

It has been a while since I last blogged for various reasons, but I am really hoping to consistently blog from now on! We will see if it happens. Life has just been super busy this year!

Anyways, this is one of my favorite cookie recipes. I have been making these cookies for years, even before I went gluten free. Every time I take them anywhere they disappear in minutes! Here is the recipe:

🍪Ingredients🍪

1 Cup Peanut butter ( I prefer creamy)                           1 Egg

1 Cup Granulated Sugar                                                       1 tsp Vanilla

➡️Directions⬅️

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Combine peanut butter, sugar, egg, and vanilla. Mix well.
  3. Roll dough in balls and place on a greased cookie sheet. Press crisscross design in cookies.
  4. Bake for 12 minutes. Let cool slightly before removing from pan.
  5. Enjoy! These are good hot and room temp. (Also good frozen but don’t tell my mom I know that!😉)

There are also several variations you can do on this:

  • You can put a hershey kiss on each while cookies are still warm.
  • You can use nut butters instead of peanut butter if you are allergic. I have never personally done this but I have heard it is good.
  • You can roll the raw cookie dough balls in sanding sugar.
  • You can mix chocolate chips or nuts in the dough.

If there are different ways you have done this let me know in the comments below! Until next time!

In Love,

Different Cupcakes

Heylo Cupcakes!!!

Sorry I haven’t blogged in a while. Around Christmas time most years I am crazy busy so I don’t have time for blogging.😰 Nevertheless here I am now!

Recently ( AKA for the past year and a half) I haven’t been feeling that well. So I went to the doctor and they proscribed me some medicine and such. The medicine didn’t work that well so I went back to the doctor and she had some tests run on me. So far the tests have come back that I am allergic to Wheat and Milk. I am still going to have more tests and so I will see if I am allergic to anything else and what the extent of my allergies are.

Anyways, because of this I have to majorly change my diet! So as I go and find good recipes I am going to post them on here to hopefully help others that have allergies like my own.

In Love,

Star Wars Lunch Box

Hey Cupcakes!!!🎂

Sorry I haven’t blogged in sooooo long, I have been very busy with traveling, school, church, meetings, and several other things.

Anyways, recently I was at Game Stop looking at Pokemon cards when I saw a this Lunchbox. It was only $5. I couldn’t believe it was so cheap! So I got it. As most of y’all know I am a big fangirl so I love anything geeky themed. This lunchbox is going to come in handy on youth group trips and such.

This comes with a bag to carry it in so it doesn’t get damaged or anything. While making this lunch in the picture I got a little excited and made waaaaay to much! So this ended up being lunch plus 2 snacks for later. The lunchbox stacks to look like R2D2 so it is very portable. I think it would be cool if the legs detached and were silverware but sadly this is not the case so if you had this make sure to bring some with you. It came with a cutter to cut your sandwich (not pictured) but it is pretty thin so you have to cut each sandwich item separately. I did not do this as you can tell by the picture. The bottom of one of the layers that makes it look like a death star.

I have only used this twice so I can’t 100% tell the quality but it seems to be pretty sturdy. As a rating I would probably give it 4 out of 5 stars. I hope you found this review useful and fun!

In Love,

Deborah 🙃

Minnie Mouse Friday

Hola Cupcakes!!!

Today is another Fabulous Friday! In my previous post I mentioned that I was going to start featuring other people besides my self. So I figured who better to start with than my sista.  Like mine this was quickly thrown together on the spur of the moment. I thought it turned out pretty cute!

Her glasses are not part of the costume she just always wears them. The shirt she got at Disney World in Downtown Disney. The shorts she got at the Exchange for $13. The clear Mickey ears are mine and I got them at Disneyland for $10.

I hope you liked this new style.

In Love,

Deborah🙃

New Updates

Hey Cupcakes!!!!

As you may know I have been blogging for almost a year! It is hard to believe it has been that long! Sooo much in my life has changed since then that I feel this blog is due for an update.

The first and most exciting change is that I am welcoming on a new author!!! She is starting soon and I feel she will bring an exciting change of pace for y’all! Her screen name is Budgie Lady. We are really good friends and I have known her for like 13 years! 😂

The next change is my screen name. If you haven’t already noticed I changed it from my old one to Cupcake Girl. I am still the same person just under a different name.

I am also updating my Fabulous Friday section. Starting Friday I am going to start using other people than just me. I will still be on there sometimes but not as often. If you want to be featured on there just comment or email a picture of your self wearing an outfit that you love and a brief description of it.

I may change more things but I haven’t decided yet. I will update when/if I do.

In Love,

Deborah 🙃
