Tablet Companion

I am writing this blog post from my Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 10.1. While it seems awkward right now, it is nice to know that I can do so without bringing my big, heavy laptop along when I am on the go. I often have chunks of time – 15-20 minutes – where I could [...]

Udi’s Gluten-Free On-the-Go

Traveling when you are following the gluten-free diet can be a challenge, but it doesn’t have to be.  I truly believe the key to success is planning.  If you fail to plan, you basically plan to fail.  Udi’s Gluten-Free helps make planning to travel gluten-free easy since most of their products don’t require refrigeration and [...]

Simplicity With Pillsbury Gluten-Free

Being gluten-free is hard enough as an adult, imagine being a child or teen following the gluten-free diet!  My son, Jon, started the gluten-free diet when he was 10 years old.  He was not pleased about it at the time, nor is he today, 7 years after his diagnosis.  Things like gluten-free cookies and treats [...]
