Free A.D.D. Seminar

I have not really posted about ADD even though I am pretty sure my son has it.  According to many specialist ADD and Dyslexia go hand in hand. Here is what Everyday Health Says:

For many children, attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) and the learning disorder dyslexia go hand-in-hand. As many as one in four children with ADHD also have dyslexia, while between 15 and 40 percent of children with dyslexia have ADHD.

Here is another website:

Approximately 60 to 100 percent of children diagnosed with ADHD also have two or more other related conditions and one of the most notable conditions is dyslexia.

So, both say ADHD but its the same for ADD. I am sharing this because the author of the  book Healing ADD Revised Edition: The Breakthrough Program that Allows You to See and Heal the 7 Types of ADD, Dr. Amen, is hosting an online seminar.

I have purchased his new book recently and plan to watch the seminar. I can’t wait.

Gluten Free Strawberry Poke Cake

I have found a new favorite summer treat: the gluten free strawberry poke cake.

A friend brought it to a gathering (it was not gluten free) but I decided that I was going t make it! That is my mission in life: to create what isn’t gluten free into Gluten Free. So far I have had many successes and some fails. Luckily more successes than fails.

Here is a new success:



I found the recipe here. Not gluten free but I just swapped my handy-dandy Safeway Gluten Free Cake Mix.IMG_4557

Box of gluten free white cake

1 box of instant pudding (3.4 oz)

4 eggs

3/4 c. vegetable oil (I used Coconut oil)

3/4 c. milk (I used Lactaid)

1 (3oz) box strawberry flavored Jell-O

1 c. boiling water

1/2 c. cold water

Preheat oven 350 degrees. Spray 9×13 in pan with cooking spray.

Using an electric mixer fitted with a paddle attachment, mix together cake mix, pudding mix, eggs, oil, and milk until well mixed, about 2 minutes. Pour into pan and bake for 4o minutes.

Let cool for 20-30 minutes.

Using a serving fork or straw, poke holes all over cake.

In a medium bowl, mix Jell-O and boiling water until Jell-O is dissolved. Mix in cold water and pour mixture slowly over cake so that it sinks down in all holes.  Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate at least 3 hours.

Spread cool whip on top of cake and top with sliced strawberries.
