If you remember from a previous post, my Boaz and I enjoyed putzing around Sanibel Island over Christmas break. We discovered an incredible placewhere I could eat nestled in the Bailey Shopping Plaza next to the bicycle rental store. They did an awesome job handling my food to avoid cross-contamination for this celiac and multi-allergy ...Read Full Post »

I don’t know about you, but most Christmases start around Thanksgiving and finally end around Valentine’s Day. Why? Because we get hooked on hyperflavoring, fats, sweets, and salts. Our notion of veggies looks more like overly mushy green beans—very few of them—doing the backstroke in mushroom so...Read Full Post »

Cooler Fall temperatures make us hungry for warm comfort foods. I've loved spaghetti squash for a long time, but recently rediscovered it's delicious swap for pasta. Spaghetti squash gets its name for the stringy texture of the flesh. Why bother spiralizing stuff when God set this up for us already? The stores around me had it on sale tempting me to buy one,...Read Full Post »

I've heard parents and teachers exclaim, "School starts next week. Can you believe it?" Frantically they shop for kids' clothes and school supplies. All those forms will come home to be filled out and returned to teachers. Football practice and cheerleading tryouts place many parents' backsides in the seats of bleachers waiting… waiti...Read Full Post »

The grandkids wrinkled up their noses while they picked at their food on one of their visits a couple of years ago. “Grandma, I don’t like this. Can we have mac and cheese?” What they meant to say was they didn’t like the healthy meal I cooked because they were used to hyper-flavored boxed fare. It is tough to...Read Full Post »

I have a grill that needs cleaned up for the season sitting in our garage. Thoughts of grilled chicken brats, grilled corn on the cob, salad, and grilled peaches stuffed with seasonal berries have my mouth watering. Our grill is gas, so cooking is cleaner than with charcoal. Some considerations must be observed for safe grilling li...Read Full Post »

Sorry about no posts yesterday. I woke up to a monster migraine that had me trotting to the bathroom the entire day. I could barely post the notice on Facebook about no posts for the day. Thank you for the well wishes, prayers, and encouragement. You are greatly appreciated!
Since I lost a whole day’s worth of writing, I had to storm ideas for this week’s post ...Read Full Post »

One day, when I was reading through Facebook posts, I came across an organic meal service that advertised how reasonably priced AND healthy it was. That intrigued me so I read more about what they had to offer along with the comments. Wow! Someone decided to blast them for “false advertising” saying how ridiculously expensive it is for a family to eat healthy a...Read Full Post »

I am seriously unprepared to write a blog post because we started moving into our house. Thankfully, it is a step-wise process. We moved my laundry center—a stacked washer and dryer unit that doesn’t come apart. We drained the hoses as best as possible, but it was still a bear to move. I am a bit ouchy t...Read Full Post »
