Well, I survived my camping trip this weekend, albeit a little worn and tattered (but that which does not kill you, right?). Just as I had suspected, “Heidi” and “Camping” are two words that do not belong in the same sentence!  Here are just a few words/phases that highlight my weekend: wolves, animal bones, dead […]

Camping (Mis)Adventures, A Weekly Menu Plan and A Few Giveaway Winners

I must confess that I’m not much of a camper, it’s not something we did when I was growing up in a family of 4 females and one token male.  I’m really not sure why we didn’t go camping either.  Afterall, my parents met when they spent their college summers working at Roosevelt Lodge in […]

For this week’s menu plan, I’m taking back Italian.  For the most part, I have steered clear of one of my favorite cuisines since going dairy-free (and mostly grain-free) earlier this year.  But now I’m ready to re-define my definition of Italian goodness.  With the exception of lasagna, I think most Italian recipes can taste […]

This past Thursday, some friends and I had a GF GNO (gluten-free girls night out) and one of my friends, a new Meals in a Minute consultant, demoed some of their gluten-free sauces by making up some spring rolls (you can see all the gluten-free products by Meals in a Minute here).  I don’t know […]

I love this time of year, when all the blood, sweat and tears that go into a beginners’ garden start to pay off…or at least give you the glimmer of hope that yes, you can in fact grow your own fruits and vegetables! Of all the countless punctures (blackberries are thorny suckers!), many days smelling […]

Where’s that magic wand when I need it?? […]
