Staying Balanced & Healthy

Staying balanced & healthy isn’t always easy. Life happens. Meetings pop up or one of the kids always seems to need something last minute for a project, yet they neglect to share that until I am in my jammies. Staying balanced & healthy to me means eating right 80 percent of the time and [...]

The Best Burger

Have you ever had one of those meals where you just threw something together and it ended up being spectacular?  I had one of these last week.  I was trying to finish up a bunch of half-completed tasks and needed to feed myself & Hannah.  I had picked up some grass fed beef from [...]

Birthday Celebration Complete with Gluten

I know you are probably reading the title thinking I am out of my mind.  I can assure you that I didn’t eat gluten willingly, but as a result of cross contamination.  Fortunately I did not get sick.  I am not sure how I got so lucky – maybe not enough gluten present?  Who [...]

Sugar Inc. Cupcakes

I may have found heaven on earth the other day.  I took a trip to the mall with Hannah to see Santa and while we were waiting for the jolly red man to appear, we wandered up to Sugar Inc. to see what gluten-free goodies they had in store that day.  Though they were [...]

The Menu Plan That Wasn’t

Here it is, Monday morning, and I have yet to make my menu plan for the week. I had some GI bug early last week and didn’t feel right for the rest of the week (really until yesterday). Thursday night Hannah started puking and has puked on & off since. Needless to say we [...]
