Teal Pumpkin Project

It’s October, the time when the minds of little ones (and not-so-little ones) turn to the fun and festivities of Halloween.  Whether Halloween parties at school, trick-or-treating with friends, or doing Trunk-n-Treat/Harvest Festival at a local church, it’s a time of costumes, fun, games, and most importantly… CANDY! I loved Halloween as a kid.  I…

Chocolate Avocado Mousse

My world has been turned upside down.  2+2= yellow and I’m totally ok with that. I’m pretty sure that I’m one of the only people in the country that doesn’t like avocado.  I know all the health benefits, and I know it’s super popular, but I just can’t get over the taste. Blasphemy, I know….

Doctor’s Orders

Do you ever get on Pinterest?  I love Pinterest.  It’s a wealth of information on all sorts of things.  I have found countless recipes, my wife has found several useful crochet patterns… my coworkers and I even have a shared Pinterest board to find great ideas for our classrooms (I’m a high school Spanish teacher…

The Bubble

Allergy parents/allergy sufferers, have you ever notice the bubble we tend to be in?  It’s a weird bubble.  We are part of support groups, we read the message boards, we do the research… with all of that, it’s easy to feel like the rest of the world gets it, like they are all going through…

Vegan Soft Pretzels

Soft, chewy, German-y… just the way a pretzel should be! When I was in high school, my best friend and I  both worked at the local mall.  In our free time, we would go hang out at the downtown mall. As an adult, however, I have come to a realization.  I hate malls.  People walk…

Back to School: Approaching the 504

It’s that time of year again… the air is far from turning crisp and cool, but the school buses are running and classes are starting.  It is back to school time! To this day, I love buying school supplies.  Something about fresh, new pencils and notebooks… it’s hard to explain, but there’s nothing quite like…

Support

I want to tell you a story…. A few weeks ago, we went on vacation. Packing with kids is always a challenge. Packing with kids with health issues is a whole different level. We have to pack medicine, mixing-shaker bottles (for formula), various medicated creams (so… many… creams…..)…. fortunately we are on a hiatus from…

Kashi Gluten Free Waffles

Breakfast is one of my favorite meals of the day.  Well, it’s a toss-up between that and lunch and dinner.  And second breakfast.  And elevenses… Bacon, biscuits and gravy, waffles… it doesn’t matter what time of day, it makes for an excellent meal.  In a food allergy house, though, it’s not always the easiest meal…
