It’s almost Thanksgiving and with a difficult past few weeks, I’ve needed to pull my family and friends close. We’ve needed more support, more connections, and more shared meals. I feel so grateful for the wonderful people in my life and the network that keeps us going. Being the food-based holiday that it is, Thanksgiving provides a unique opportunity for coming together with folks you might see every day, and folks you only see a few times a year. I [...]

I didn’t really know Fall as a season until I moved to Alabama for college. The enormous trees started to change from deep hunter greens to bright oranges, yellows and reds around the middle of September, and stayed that way until Thanksgiving. I hadn’t experienced anything like this while growing up in the dry desert of West Texas. The Pumpkin Spice Latte also made a grand appearance into my life the fall of my freshman year of college. I resisted [...]

Cooking is hard in my house lately. On doctor’s orders, we are doing two months of dietary restrictions, and it has thrown all of our eating habits into an uproar. Confession, I didn’t think it would be this hard. I mean, my husband was already intolerant of gluten, meaning that we have gluten free meals all of the time, essentially. Not to mention that I am part of a blog and business that deals with food allergies and making allergy-friendly [...]

  One of my favorite ingredient substitutions is dates in place of sweeteners. They still are high in sugar but they have other great benefits, like reduce blood pressure and a good source of fiber. I like making date paste. It's easy and can keep in the freezer for 3 months! If you are looking for other great substitutions, head over to our education section, and check out my top 8 corn substitutions... having good substitutions on hand makes cooking and baking easier, and prevents [...]

For many of us, summer is ending: school has started again, the weather is getting cooler, and our minds are turning to pumpkins, apples, and the Halloween decorations lining the stores. And although I am ready to leave behind some parts of summer, I’m not ready to  leave behind a topic many think of as only belonging to summer: vacations. For one thing, why do we normally think of vacations as belonging to summer? As adults, we can take them [...]

Have you ever had a moment where you felt like Ralphie in A Christmas Story, standing outside the window and looking in at something you really, really wanted? Or like Tiny Tim in Dickens’ Christmas Carol, watching someone feast when you were starving? These are classic examples of being excluded from something that is hoped for with great longing. Literature, film, and theater are all filled with examples of people who desperately wanted to be part of something. And you, [...]

Let me confess something: I don’t have any food allergies. This is something I have mentioned in the past that I feel it’s important to continue to acknowledge. I am married to someone with a gluten intolerance, and have many friends with varying food allergies, intolerances, or other restrictions, but I, Ashley, am not allergic to anything. Why would I tell you this? May is food allergy awareness month, as you may have gathered from some of our other posts. [...]
