Busy week ahead! Celiac Disease Awareness Month kicks off tomorrow, so be sure to check back for an exciting gluten-free giveaway! I think the weather here is finally stabilizing. We had an abnormally warm winter, then it got chilly in April, which was quite the shock to the system after 80s in March. Lots [...]
April is National Grilled Cheese Month! I remember eating grilled cheese sandwiches as a young child (maybe 4 or 5 years old) on a regular basis. Nothing warms you up quicker than a hot sandwich on a chilly day. My mom used to make our sandwiches with grilled onions on them. There was nothing [...]
I have been a fan of NuGo Bars for a while now. I love the NuGo Free dark chocolate crunch – it is a fabulous gluten-free, dairy-free, soy-free emergency bar to keep on hand in my purse or gym bag. In addition to the NuGo Free line, the NuGo Slim bars are also a [...]

I had the opportunity to review some pretty cool snacks recently. Funky Monkey Snacks (love the name!) are real fruit snacks made using a proprietary freeze-drying process that creates “Fruit that Crunches” while retaining close to all of fruit’s natural goodness. It is no secret that I love fruit, so I couldn’t wait to [...]
I said it the other day and I’ll say it again – where did my baby go?
