Celiac Disease Foundation Conference Trip – Part Three (Finally!)

I’m not even sure if I can trust my memory of what happened at the conference anymore, since it has been so long now. I want to start off by apologizing. I write a series of posts and lag behind on getting the finale up in a timely manner. I guess it’s a good thing I’m not a writer for “Lost.” I don’t think I have millions of people waiting with bated breath for this post, but I do want to be fair for those readers that I do have. So, my apologies. A lot of life stuff has happened to me since the last post. I promise if I ever have a series of posts again, I will have them all written ahead of time, so I can get them up quicker. Thank you for your patience.

So, away we go!

Celiac Disease Foundation Conference Trip – Part Two

Last time, on Celiac Disease Foundation Conference Trip, we left our heroin as she was about to have a seat and listen to some amazing information from doctors and dietitians. Will she listen? Will she conk out due to lack of sleep? Will she eat all of the cupcakes on the platter in the middle of the table? Is there a cure on the horizon? Let’s see…

Celiac Disease Foundation Conference Trip – Part One

Road Trip! While that exclamation is, usually, supposed to elicit whoops and hollers of excitement from people, if the road trip consists of being by yourself, traveling down I-5 to Los Angeles for six and a half hours in awful weekend traffic, uh… not so much. But, but, but… it was so worth it. The […]

Going to the Celiac Disease Foundation Conference

Well, this is going to be a short post. I am just getting on here to say that I am going to the Celiac Disease Foundation conference on Saturday, May 15th. I have to leave tomorrow morning to drive down, so this will be the last post for a while. But I will be back on here early next week to tell you all about it.

Italian Chicken Stew Recipe (Naturally Gluten Free)

That was a great story, but why, oh why did I write about it?

Well, I really wanted to write about a recipe that I found on the internet and changed a little to fit our needs. The dish I made actually reminds me of the above dish, but I thought the story sounded much more interesting than: I was trying to find something to do with this chard I got in our Friday Farm Fresh produce box, so I surfed the web… I just thought that was too boring.

Adopt a Gluten-Free Blogger “Cream” Puff Attempt

I’m pretty good at cooking, too. I have my basic dishes that I make a lot, but they rock. And I am working on branching out to new things. Baking is another matter. I really like it, but I bake cookies. That’s about it. So why I chose a gluten-free, dairy-free cream-filled puffed pastry as my recipe for ‘Adopt a Gluten-Free Blogger’ is beyond me. What was I thinking?

Crockpot Lamb and Cabbage Recipe

My mother-in-law is half Irish. My father-in-law is also half Irish, which makes my husband half Irish. But this is about my mother-in-law. I have been with my husband for over 10 years, and almost every year on Saint Patrick’s Day, if we were in the same city as my mother-in-law, we would have corned […]

A New Journey of Gluten Free Food Discovery

I have such strong, fond memories of food. When I was little, I remember coming home from school and opening the door of my house to the smell of freshly baked chocolate cupcakes. The smell was so warm and enveloping. It would carry me down the hall and into the kitchen, where my mom was putting the last touches of icing on. She would be standing there in her apron with a tall glass of cold milk in one hand and a warm cupcake in the other. She’d have a huge smile on her face and ask me how my day was. O.K. Ummmmm… So right now, my mom is wondering who’s blog she accidentally clicked on or what strange, crazy drugs is her daughter taking.

A Little Introspection and Self-Observations

Once upon a time, a long, long time ago…(It was almost 20 years, so it really was a long time ago.) I was working in a warehouse for an airline, but that part is unimportant. We had a driver come in one day and say something that I have never forgotten. I don’t remember what […]
