Quinoa Oat Energy Bites

While there is a widening range of choices every year, it is generally very difficult to find allergy-friendly energy bars: most of them get protein and long-lasting energy through eggs, nuts, and/or dairy. The only store-bought kind I’ve ever been satisfied with are Clif bars, but even then you run the risk of cross-contamination, and […]

Chocolate Chip Ice Cream Cake

For the past four July 27ths I have made Dan (whose birthday is today – Happy Birthday!) this ice cream cake. Four years ago I asked him what type of cake he wanted me to make for him, and somehow the conversation got around to ice cream cakes. He had never even tried an ice […]

New England Trip 2010, Day 6

Day Six of our east coast trip took us to Acadia National Park in Maine. It was unbelievably gorgeous – these pictures don’t do it justice. Through the picture-taking and scenery-enjoying, I was on the lookout for either a moose or a beaver. I didn’t see either, but still experienced one of the most amazing […]

Wednesdays are always one of the hardest days for me (they’re in the middle of a workweek, so I’m tired but still have a few days left), but boy this week has just flown by! While I don’t like to wish time away, I’m not complaining – I’m so looking forward to sleeping in a […]

A Link to GF Desserts

Good morning! I just popped in to share a link to a myrecipes.com page that is full of gluten-free desserts. Some of them can be easily transformed into dairy- or egg-free as well; some of them can’t. However, all of them are under 300 calories! It’s so nice to see companies, brands, and websites becoming […]

The fourth day of our trip was also the last day in Boston. We spent the morning wandering around Little Italy, which was so much fun. There were tons of little shops to poke into with amazing pastries, cheese, meats, and breads inside.¬†Of course, most of them were not allergy-free, but it’s still fun to […]
