Gluten-Free, Dairy-Free, No Bake Cookies

Gluten-Free, Dairy-Free, No Bake Cookies

When I was a teenager, I had a step-mother. (Technically, she is my ex-step-mother, now, but we don’t need to get into that.) Anyway, we had the typical teenager/step-mother relationship. In other words, not the best. There were many reasons for this that I also won’t get into here. But, the cool thing is she […]

I have a confession to make. I eat pretty darn healthy most of the time, but I have a weakness. Tartar Sauce. I really, really, like tarter sauce. I could dip just about anything in it. The best tartar sauce is the one you get when you go out for fish and chips. You know […]

Macarons! Have you had them? You should. They are fabulous. As of just a couple of weeks ago, I had never had these little French cookies. Then, something wonderful happened.

Gluten-Free Personal Care Products from Green Beaver – Review and Giveaway

Gluten-Free Lavender Square Line

Gluten-free personal care products are a controversial subject. Most doctors say that people with Celiac Disease/gluten intolerance can only be affected by gluten if we ingest it. Supposedly, we can’t absorb enough through the skin to affect us. They do give way when it comes to people with dermatitis herpetiformis. But personally… I would rather […]
