The Random Things We Love to Make and Do

Muffin Tin Monday – We’re Back! August 29, 2011

Oh, Muffin Tin Monday!  How we have missed you!


For those of you that are re-joining us, and wondering just where we have been all this time, allow me to fill you in…My little muffin tin eater was diagnosed with Celiac Disease in June, and can longer eat gluten (found in wheat, rye, and barley).  This has seriously changed our eating habits around here, so we took the summer to get used to all of this.


Skylar asked if we could do muffin tins again, and I think we are ready to give it a shot.  We didn’t go with a theme for this one, but just went with a few things we have been eating lately.  Some are new things and some are old favorites, but they are all tasty!


And so I give you our very first gluten free muffin tin!



Top Row (Left to Right):  Edamame Hummus with Edamame Crackers, Sandwich Kebobs, and Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Dip with Chocolate Animal Crackers

Bottom Row: Salted Cucumbers, Sandwich Kebobs, Apple Slices


Are asking yourself “What is Edamame?”  Well, it’s our favorite veggie here!  Basically, it’s soy beans.  We buy ours in the frozen veggie section at our favorite store, Traders Joe’s.  This hummus, and the crackers, were also found at Trader Joe’s.  So yummy! 


The chocolate chip cookie dough dip was a really fun treat.  It doesn’t have any eggs in it, so it’s safe to eat as is.  If you want the recipe, we posted it *here* as part of our Gluten Free Friday segment.  The cookies are gluten free animal crackers, made by Ian’s (a great company that makes tons of kid-friendly GF foods)


Okay, sandwich kebobs.  I thought these turned out adorable!  For those of you who are paying attention, you might be saying, wait…she can’t eat bread!  Oh, but she can eat GF bread.  This week, we used Udi’s…



For GF bread, it’s quite good, and Skylar loves it.  She had so much fun eating all of her sandwich bits off off the skewer.  I used a cookie cutter to make round bread pieces, and stacked those with rolled up ham, rolled up lettuce, and sting cheese.


So, what do you think of our first GF Muffin Tin?


We will, of course be posting this to Muffin Tin Mom’s site.
