Friday Fun & a Contest!!

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 [...]

Gluten-Free & The Chocolate Factory

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 [...]

A Disappointing Dining Experience

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 [...]

Summer Lovin'

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 [...]

Trader Joe's Almond Butter & Fruit Spread

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.  [...]

Weekly Menu Plan ~ July 20, 2009

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 [...]

New Products

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.  [...]

10K & a Product Review

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, [...]

The News Appears True

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 [...]

Product Review: Betty Crocker's Gluten-Free Yellow Cake Mix

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 [...]
