It is the middle of the award season. (Thank goodness I don’t live in L.A. anymore.) Well, bloggers have awards themselves. Some are organized and a bit stuffy like all of the rest of the awards, and some a just fun. This is one of those fun ones. Diane from The W.H.O.L.E. Gang awarded me […]
If you have been reading my posts, you will know that my mom wasn’t a big baker when I was younger. But, she had a few things that she made. Black Midnight Chocolate Cake was one of them. I guess that’s one of the reasons why I have an affinity for chocolate cake. Another one […]
So, here is part two of our getaway. I’ll just jump right in. After getting all of the fabulous opinions, we headed off on our journey. We made an appointment with Vincent Arroyo Winery for 12:30pm, but on the way, we got stuck behind a painting truck. The kind that paints the stripes on the […]
Well, it came. No matter how much we all wish it wouldn’t. It finally came for me. And it wasn’t so bad. Especially because I made sure it came with style. And fun. And lots of great food and wine. That’s right, folks. I turned the big 4-0. I am, officially, no longer in […]
I lied to my son. It was minor, and it was to get him to try something good for him, but it was still a lie. I don’t feel very good about it. A lie is a lie, and I don’t want to start down that road. Each lie gets a little bit bigger until […]
While perusing facebook the other day, I came across a challenge thrown up by Gluten-Free Girl. I am always up for a challenge, and this one seemed fun. Shauna (Gluten-Free Girl) challenged us to write a blog post by Monday (7-5-10) night finishing the sentence, “Cooking became easier, and more fun, when I learned [...]” I had to think for a minute because I have always loved to cook, when I have the time. But I have always been the kind of person to stick with a few recipes and repeat them over and over. Once I found out I couldn’t eat gluten, some of those recipes had to go. That’s ok. They weren’t very healthy for me anyway. So, I thought about it. I thought, and thought, and thought about it. And here is what I came up with.
While checking in on twitter the other day, I had a DM waiting for me. (For those who don’t use twitter, it means Direct Message, as opposed to a tweet. Only I could see it.) It was from Lissy at glutenfreelissy.com. She thought it would be fun to try and spread a meme around about being gluten free. I agreed, and so here are my answers. Please feel free to answer them yourself on your own blog and spread it around. Just for kicks!
Well, this post has nothing to do with food. It is all about me having to express my emotions. It’s something that every parent goes through but especially every mom. My baby’s first steps into the outside world and away from me. You see, even though the Little Man is not quite two years-old, he is leaving me.
This last weekend, we went to my father-in-law’s place in Big Sur, CA. It is on top of one of the hills on the east side of highway 1. It is just beautiful up there. As you go up the driveway, you can just feel any stress you have leaving your body. That is why I am so disappointed that my memories of this place will be forever tainted with being gluten-ed there on Saturday night.
Well, I was working on a different post about Borscht, when we went on our daily walk. (I will finish the other post and get it up soon.) We were walking along and came upon something in the middle of the road. It looked like a turtle shell, so what could it be? It turns […]
