Busy, busy, busy. New job duties, more classes and training a full-time assistant (yay!) are keeping me on the batshit side of crazy. So this recipe has been biding its time until I had an opportunity to take a breath. I had originally intended this to go up just before Valentine's Day, but I was… Read More That’s how I roll
While I've gotten pretty damn good at converting gluten recipes to gluten free, I've neglected the creative side of me that comes up with recipes on the fly. Ain't no time like the present to start working on that. I have crammed myself into a pretty small space. So small that 90% of my cookbooks… Read More *snicker*
I never believed in divorce. I believed that marital vows were forever and you worked problems out. I didn't think I'd be "that person" in a bad marital situation. Over the last eight months, the "stable" home life I lived became utterly intolerable. Through much soul-searching and prayer, I made a decision I never dreamed… Read More Hell has frozen over
Just think – if you attend the Gluten and Allergen-Free Expo next weekend, you could witness possible acts of awkwardness perpetuated by yours truly. C'mon…it'll be fun! Happy Easter, everyone. I sincerely hope that no one has coma-ed themselves with chocolate. I was smart this year and tempered the chocolate fix with a little peanut… Read More I’ll trade my vacation for cake
The Gluten and Allergen-Free Expo is coming up….April 29th through May 1st in Lisle, Illinois.

And since… Read More Are you going?
I recently took my Buick Rainier in for an oil change. I was sitting there minding my own business, playing some stupid game on my phone, when a service tech came in and pulled me off to the side. The water pump was leaking – $100 deductible to fix thanks to my ridiculously expensive extended… Read More Excuse me?
OK. We all know I'm a klutz except when I'm rocking in the kitchen. To give you some background, I almost went flat on my face about 3:30 this morning because of a dog toy. Because that's how I roll.
I've kind of been a good girl about my 2011 intentions and kicking my own ass. For example, this past Sunday I cranked out 45 minutes on the treadmill, at 4 miles an hour, full incline. For those of you that know me well, this actually had the potential to be a HUGE. DISASTER. Because… Read More Grace personified – that’s me
Holy old nuts, is it cold today. For those of us that reside in the Midwest, today's temperature is just adding insult to injury. But hey, I've got blueberry buckle so it's all good. Until I have to go outside, that is. I was sitting in this very spot last night, playing Facebook games, reading,… Read More Buckling down with blueberries
Dear Mother Nature, Please stop. Momma put a hundred thousand layers of clothes on me and I. Don't. Like. It. Love, The Gidge A slighly blurred view from just inside the garage Looks cool with the flash on, eh? I don't like you right now, Momma.
