I had a lot of time to think this morning while I was getting my 7 mile run in. I ran on the treadmill at the gym because it was dark outside and I have watched a few too many horror movies (and too much news on TV as well). So while I was chugging [...]
Yes, I said chocolate. My all-time, hands down, favorite delicacy in the world. I have been trying to make sure to keep the kids busy this summer to stave off boredom. As a parent (and as all parents know) boredom = trouble. Trouble comes in many forms. They can range from mild bickering to full-out [...]
Another gluten-free blogger that I read wrote about a bad experience he had at Cheeseburger in Paradise. He titled the entry “Cheeseblunder in Paradise”. We experienced a “Cheeseblunder in Paradise” today as well. This happened to be the Hilliard location.
We met some family there after touring the Anthony-Thomas Candy Factory (post re-cap to follow). [...]
There is nothing better in the summer than fresh fruit. All the fun varieties…I really can’t get enough. I get so excited walking into a Farmer’s Market or produce department with rows & rows of fresh fruit. I have really broadened my horizons over the past couple of years with fruit…just ask my family, I [...]
Last trip to Trader Joe’s, I picked up some new Almond Butter & Fruit Spread. I got the Raw Creamy Unsalted Almond Butter and also the Roasted Almond Butter with Sea Salt (which will be reviewed in a later post). I was looking for my beloved Pumpkin Butter, but ’tis all sold out until fall. [...]
A quick update to my 10K post yesterday and then I will get down to business. I got the official race results back just a little while ago. I finished in 53:22; 25th overall (out of 79 people) and 2nd in my age group (out of 13 women). Not too bad for my first [...]
I am always on the look out for new, healthy, gluten-free foods and drinks. I may find some of my new finds when I am out shopping or I may see them on one of the many blogs that I read or I may find out about them through one of my social networking sites. [...]
Ran my 10K race today. Unofficial time was 53:30. What an amazing feeling that was. My first race ever. The weather couldn’t have been more perfect; 60 and a light breeze. Odd that it was like Fall in mid-July. I was so nervous leading up to the start of the race. Once I got going, [...]
Twitter & the gluten-free community has been buzzing the past day or so about the news that Starbucks is discontinuing the Valencia Orange Cake, the only gluten-free food offering on their menu. They are replacing it with Kind Bars (a fruit & nut bar), which are rumored to be less expensive for the consumer. This [...]
Hip hip hooray!!! Another gluten-free product from Betty Crocker!! This was the last mix in their new line that I hadn’t had a chance to review. I have had it for a while, but time just gets away from me sometimes. I hate that!
This cake was super easy to make. I took [...]
