Easter Sunday & Weekly Menu Plan

Happy Easter!  It’s a rainy day here in Columbus, Ohio.  Fortunately for us our kids are old enough to not care that their Easter egg hunt is inside instead of outside.  My morning has been spent stuffing pastel Skittles into little plastic eggs. 

Of course a few of these made their way into [...]

Review: Red Apple Lipstick

When I first got the call from my doctor that I would need to start following a gluten-free diet, the last thing that crossed my mind was having to check my cosmetics for the presence of gluten.  Seriously?  Didn’t I have enough on my plate?  Yes, seriously.  Red Apple Lipstick helps simplify things a little [...]

Wordless Wednesday

Lemon Sponge Pie = YUM!

Review: FITzee Bar

I love when protein bars taste like a decadent treat!  The FITzee Bars I sampled recently reminded me of apple pie and chocolate chip blondies!  What better way to refuel after a hard workout or hold me over to my next meal?

Recipe: Gluten-Free Carrot Cake

Easter is less than a week away now.  What better way to celebrate than with a gluten-free carrot cake?  This cake does take a bit of time to make, but I promise it is well worth it!

Weekly Menu Plan–3-24-2013

It hardly seems appropriate that I should be typing the date for the end of March when we are getting a spring snowstorm.  I have heard varying reports of accumulation totals, but they range from 3-10 inches.  Clearly someone angered Mother Nature because she just won’t quit!  Each time we have an extremely cold day, [...]

Running with a Legend

An early morning coaches breakfast with running legend, Bill Rodgers, and 12 miles was going to make for a long morning. Historically my 12 mile runs haven’t been too bad, but when I woke up and my legs were sore from BodyPump yesterday, I knew it might be challenging. Being part of MIT Marathoners affords [...]

Gluten-Free Protein-Packed Breakfast Sandwich

Breakfast is the most important meal of the day.  I am sure you have heard that before, right?  I used to skip breakfast and looking back now, I don’t know why I did that or how I made it through the morning.  Now wonder I was starving my 11:00 AM!  Now that I am older [...]

Mammogram Time

When I was pregnant with Hannah in January of 2002, I joined an online forum for moms who were due in August of 2002.   Many of us are still part of this forum and some have met in real life.  It is hard to believe that we have “known” each other for 11 years now!  [...]

Canyon Bakehouse Giveaway & Kid-Friendly Recipes

Canyon Bakehouse offers a variety of gluten-free breads the whole family can enjoy. From Mountain White to Colorado Caraway, there is sure to be something for everyone. I quickly fell in love with the Colorado Caraway last year and can’t get over how much it resembles my favorite non-gluten-free rye bread.

Turkey, Provolone and [...]
