Gluten-Free Peanut Butter and Chocolate Chip Cookies

The holidays are a great time to eat good desserts and relax! This recipe is simple, requiring minimal ingredients and will allow you to enjoy a great dessert without having to spend the entire day in the kitchen.

1 cup sugar
1 cup peanut butter
1 large egg
1/2 cup chocolate chips

Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F.
Mix the ingredients together in a large bowl.

Roll the dough into balls.

Use the bottom of a glass to flatten them out.

Bake for 9-14 minutes (depending on your oven). When you take the cookies out, allow them to cool for a few minutes before you take your first bite.

Happy Studying (for those in the same boat as me)!

Also, if you have a few minutes to spare, be sure to check out my first music video!

Gluten-free Goldfish

I was at the local grocery store browsing the snacks when I came across a pack of Goldfish that looked different from the rest. I immediately grabbed it and checked its ingredients, and lo and behold it said gluten free on top! I immediately grabbed two packs and headed to check out, ready to try it out. The backstory is that before I was diagnosed, Goldfish and Cheez-it used to be my main snacks. After I found out I was gluten-free, I was "deprived'' from my favorite snacks. (I of course found substitutes along the years.) That is why this is so significant to me. A mainstream snack producer finally decided offer gluten-free snacks as well :).

Thanksgiving Report

The big food holiday has come and gone! I was unable to post anything this week because I was filming a music video for my single 'I Am No Longer'. 

The tradition in our house is to have my dad prepare our boneless stuffed turkey dinner. All items at the dinner were gluten free. Stay posted, my music video should be coming out soon!

Happy Belated Thanksgiving Greetings!
