This weekend I should be back to recipe posting. I made an amazing new cookie recipe that I am super excited to share!! I’ve also been experimenting with homemade granola bars which need some work but I’m getting there. My body is still all kinds of sad from my gluten challenge. To recoup I started […]

Well folks, my gluten challenge has finally come to a close. I had intended to write some more updates along the way but time just didn’t seem to allow it. And by “time” I mean “toddler” haha… Yesterday morning I had my blood drawn by a wonderfully dutiful woman who poked and prodded gleefully, certain […]
