Something new...

I have started my own Gluten Free cooking site for my recipes. It's no big deal, but you can check it out. I've added a new recipe, and uploaded some of my old ones from here.

The Messy Gluten Free Cook

A word to the wise...

Sometimes you might be tempted to try something you know you shouldn't...

But just know that no matter how good that something may seem, it will leave you unhappy, filled with self loathing, bloated, and probably constipated...

I hate you gluten. I really, really hate you.

With Love,

Dr. Steve Brule "FOR YOUR HEALTH!"

I have recently discovered Dr. Steve Brule (the great John C. Reilly) and I love the man! If you want to get a taste of my humor, "CHECK IT OUT!"  Or you can check him out on

So, in tribute to this awesome dude, I swiped a still shot of him from photobucket, and put my own tag line on it...

This is for the days when I ask myself why I can't eat pizza or other gluten filled deliciousness... because some days it's hard for me.

(He has never said that, but I bet it is something he would say... mispronounced words and all).

See, the other night I was tossing the idea around of starting a food blog, to occupy my mind and energy until I get some more clients for my photo business, and I thought, it would be so funny if Brules Rules did a segment on Gluten and Celiac, because I'm sure it would be hysterical listening to him try to pronounce all the lingo associated with it. So, I came up with this little thing, and you may not think it is funny, but please know that I had a really good laugh thinking of what he would say to me. (I know... I'm ridiculous).

What happens when People get bored at our house...

I am a brunette. I have a nice medium brown color, but every once in a while I think about doing something DRASTIC... Well, when you mix that feeling with boredom, this is what you get...

It starts out innocent enough...
And I end up with red hair...

Husband came home and saw me in process, and said something along the lines of, "Let's do something crazy to my hair." So, this is what we did...

I had some FIRE ENGINE RED hair color in the closet... don't ask, I just did. ha. So, I pulled out my developer and mixed it up...

(The above picture is Husband in process)...

 (He likes to maintain anonymity).

And the end result is pretty crazy if I do say so myself...
It's always a party over here! ha ha.

With Love,

Mommy and Son day date

I took little lamb to go see HOW TO TRAIN A DRAGON and then to Costco for a Hot dog... We had lots of fun. 

Here we are after the movie... Look at that face! He is so beautiful.
Here's another one in case you couldn't tell from the last picture...

He loves Costco Dogs and "Medowade." (Lemonade)

The movie was great, and so was the company. Love that little one oodles.

I have found some new blogs...

I LOVE finding new blogs. Especially if they are devoted to being gluten free. It just makes me so happy to know that there are others out there who make my life so much easier with their wonderful ideas and beautiful dishes that are delicious and inspiring. I also love to read the stories of the people behind the blogs...

Here are a few new favorites.

Simply Sugar and Gluten Free (Seriously her life story is mine for the most part)
She Let Them Eat Cake (This lady rocks!)
Adventures of a Gluten Free Mom (Her stuff is SO beautiful)
Living Free (This is wonderful because she cooks without Dairy, Gluten or Sugar!)
Gluten Free Easily (Just browsed her site, and things are looking pretty good!)
Gluten Free Gidget (Super yummy stuff here!)
Cook it Allergy Free! (Some yummy recipes and good info on her site)
The Spunky Coconut (She's Casein/Gluten/Sugar free and also has some RAW recipes too!)
Z's Cup of Tea (Grain/Gluten/Dairy/Sugar Free!)
The Whole Life Nutrition Kitchen (She won me over with her Avocado Fudge-scicles)
Celiac Teen (How awesome is this girl? She's 17 and a whiz in the GF kitchen!)

And of course here are some old standby's that I still lurve.

The Gluten Free Goddess (AKA Karina's Kitchen... she is amazing)
Elana's Pantry (She cooks amazing things)
Ginger Lemon Girl (Awesome)
Gluten Free Mommy (She is so cool for so many reasons)

Today marks day one of being SUGAR FREE as well as GLUTEN FREE. I will be slowly but surely cutting out my DAIRY as well. So, blogs that address all THREE to me, are AMAZING.

With Love,

You tell me... Should I take sculpture or watercolor in the Fall? They are both offered at the same time, and I'm on the waitlist for both. I have a pretty good chance of getting in to both of them, so I wonder what you think.

Should I show up on the first day of school to the sculpture class or the watercolor class?

With Love,
