I’ve been feeling a bit overwhelmed lately. Overwhelmed in a good way, with many fun and rewarding opportunities coming my way, but stressed nonetheless. Even though I am not the most organized person (I think I just heard my husband snort at that)…ok, I am the owner of multiple piles in our house…anyways, too much […]
This morning, my dad volunteered at our local Bountiful Baskets site. He was there unloading giant boxes of produce at 5:00 in the morning. 5 am! Can I just say that I am thankful for the volunteers who wake up much earlier than I do so that I can have a basket full of fresh […]
Bidding is now closed! Thank you to April who was the winning bidder with $275. Thank you too all who participated! I’m pretty sure I had never visited Jennifer Perillo’s blog before August 8th. I had been following her on Twitter for a while, but hadn’t yet made it over to read her food […]
Last weekend was a busy one. We had friends visiting, lots of swimming, and a few meals eaten away from home. While I was careful to specify my diet restrictions to the restaurant staff, I still managed to get sick. I ended up with a bloated tummy, fatigue and other symptoms that I had managed […]
Do you like coffee? I have a bit of an obsession with the stuff. I don’t care if it’s 100 degrees at eight in the morning, I want a hot cup of coffee! In the afternoons though, iced coffee is the way to go. Throw a little soy or coconut milk in there, mix it […]
We haven’t been able to order a Bountiful Basket for a few weeks now. During that time, our daily intake of fruits and vegetables has decreased significantly. Not having that basket of fresh produce at the beginning of a new week really puts a cramp into our healthy eating lifestyle. Because of that, I was […]
One of the first things that people ask me when I first tell them that I’ve been diagnosed with Celiac Disease is, “So that means you can’t have any bread, right?” While it’s true that I can’t have any wheat bread, that doesn’t mean that I have to give up bread forever. After picking up […]
I’ve never been a big sandwich person. Not that I don’t enjoy a good sandwich, but I don’t want to eat one every day. And salads are great, but they can get old after a while too. Every once in a while, I just want a good snack plate for lunch. Fresh veggies, fresh fruit, […]
This morning was a special one. Joe’s first day of preschool. He woke up early and helped me make some pancakes. We used the Bob’s Red Mill Gluten-Free Pancake Mix, and added some cinnamon and a splash of vanilla. Joe cracked the eggs and gave everything a good stir with the whisk. Leila helped me […]
Remember how I got a fancy camera last month? Well, I have been having so much fun learning how to use it. There is a LOT to learn, and I have barely scratched the surface of photography education. One thing that I have been excited to start using is Photoshop. I finally downloaded it yesterday, […]
