Eating Away From Home

As you all know, eating gluten-free while traveling can pose certain challenges.  In these days, it is not hard to find something to eat that is gluten-free, but it is hard to find the things you want to eat that are gluten-free.  Any convenient store has Fritos (only has corn, oil and salt) or Snicker’s [...]

Any fun summer plans going on?  The kids get out of school this week.  It seems that they went much later this year than they have in years past.  It also seems that [...]

Review: Blackberry Cabernet Sorbet

Go get this stuff.  Now.  It is freakin’ amazing!  Ciao Bella Blackberry Cabernet Sorbet = heaven on earth.  I know I usually profess my love for all things chocolate here on my blog, but I will make exceptions for items that contain wine.  When shopping at Whole Paycheck Foods last week, I noticed that the [...]

Review: Tyson Grilled & Ready Strips

Do you often feel like you have no time?  I know that I can have a nice meal plan all laid out (and shared here) at the beginning of the week and then all of a sudden I have no time.  Things pop up and my plan goes flying right out the window.  Meetings at [...]
