Lately, I’ve been completely overwhelmed with the discovery that nearly everything in my very American pantry is loaded with MSG. If it’s not MSG, it’s another additive such as an undisclosed artificial or natural flavoring, coloring or preservative. These additives are causing millions of people to suffer needlessly every year... Continue reading

Every now and then you stumble upon something that is so unexpected and so delightful that you’ve just got to stop and tell someone. That is how I felt about last night’s dinner. You know the times when you really don’t want to cook but have to anyway - if... Continue reading

For years I foolishly thought vichyssoise was a kind of French fish soup. Well, I got the soup part right but embarrassingly betrayed the fact that I paid no attention in French class. I wish now that I had. There is no easier way to give yourself or someone you... Continue reading

Today is my two week mark of being gluten-free. As such, it is a reason to celebrate. For those of you who are snickering at my naiveté, I can understand. Two weeks is such a short time and surely no reason for bragging. Yes, you are right. In the big... Continue reading

If you like chocolate and peanut butter OR peanut butter and chocolate, and I like them both, you are going to love this GLUTEN FREE cookie! I was beginning to wonder if I would ever taste a great tasting baked good ever again after my first attempt at gluten free... Continue reading

How very kind of you Shirley! I have a lot to learn in both blogging and in living gluten free. Your encouraging words mean so much to me. As I type, I just took out of the oven 2 flourless pizza crusts from your site Gluten Free Easily. They smell wonderful. I'll let you know how the completed ones turn out. Hope you're feeling better after your unexpected contact with gluten on your trip. Thanks again for taking the time to stop by and for being so sweet to me. Blessings, Allison

This weekend, I was desperate for something quick and easy and gluten free. My family loves this salsa served with tortilla chips. Basically, it is my version of Pico de Gallo with feta cheese - nothing fancy but it hits the spot. Actually, it was gone within 10 minutes. Of... Continue reading

Four days into living gluten-free and here is what I've learned so far: 1. I really had more junk food in my house than I could have imagined. Before, I didn’t think about it. I just bought what was familiar to me, put it in the pantry or fridge and... Continue reading

Three days ago, I couldn't have even told you what gluten was. Now I find this very innocent looking protein found in wheat is causing my body a lot of grief. And worse, I am told I have to do something about it! Give it up sweetie....completely. Now for this... Continue reading

“But your mother will come. She will find this big mess! And this mess is so big And so deep and so tall, We can not pick it up. There is no way at all!” From The Cat in the Hat by Dr. Seuss Let’s face it. Life gets out... Continue reading

You may be right JP. At least I can say that I would love nothing more, but something tells me the fun would soon turn into misery before long. Of course after a few dishes are washed and some clothes are cleaned again...Though it has been fun! May God bless you in the new year.

For a solid week, we have done nothing but sleep late, play hard and survive on stocking candy and leftovers. This lovely break between Christmas and the New Year, which I am seriously considering nicknaming “The Sloth Week,” is coming to an end. In a couple of days, my husband... Continue reading

I will be the first to admit it. I am the absolute worst when it comes to unfinished projects. Powered by the best intentions, I still manage to accumulate a plethora of unfinished crafts. Add to that unused art supplies, unread books, recipes I intended to cook, untaught lesson plans,... Continue reading

This is the time when I need to grab a hot cup of cocoa and a cozy spot to stay warm; and enjoy a short break from the frosty days we are having lately. I found these in my files of our summer vacation and thought they made the perfect... Continue reading

The Dashboard is still here! For those of you who have done this before, you know what I am talking about. But ….what a night! I was awake for hours – going over ideas for customizing my banner, adding widgets (after I figure out what they are), racking my brain... Continue reading

I did it, I finally did it! After months of surfing, deliberating and yes, agonizing, I have finally joined the world of blogging. Whew, it was a little like dreading a visit to the dentist. You worry, you sweat, you secretly hope something will happen to prevent the inevitable. And... Continue reading
