May is Celiac Awareness Month! Plus, A New Recipe!

  IT IS OFFICIALLY CELIAC AWARENESS MONTH!!   As many of you know, May is Celiac Awareness Month. I want to thank the entire Celiac Community and our allies for the tremendous amount of love, support and strength you have all shown each other and myself.  Every one out there fighting to take back their health and their lives and spreading the awareness of this disease is a true hero. It’s the every day heroes like YOU that keep me going! Before I share my recipe with you, I want to briefly talk about a MAJOR and relevant topic here… INFLAMMATION. Inflammation, what can I say but I HATE…

Everyone Needs a Little Sunshine!!!!

Everyone Needs a Little Sunshine!!!!

I found my little girl, Brooklyn, (pic above) happily on her back passed out in a small area of the floor where the sun had broken through my curtains. She was in a blissful state. Her legs twitched back and forth as if she were running through a large grass field with a million cookies all around. That was of course until she heard me go for my phone to take her picture. She woke up startled, her hair a mess and rolled over as if to say, “Really mom? That was a great dream”. Sorry dear. What I really wanted…

New and Improved ALL PURPOSE FLOUR IS BACK!!!!

This time of year brings back my favorite memories of baking in the kitchen with my older sister for hours. The joy I would get to be in the kitchen making sweet treats and then eating every last one of them was only one part of the fun. It was also the time spent with her, being creative and then sharing what we made with others. When I was diagnosed with celiac disease, that all disappeared. For a time. Until one day I decided that I would not be afraid of getting in my kitchen again and REINVENTING those traditions…

Hello Friends!!!

Hello Friends!!!

Wow, SO much to catch up on!!! As many may know, I have been pretty busy finishing my book, baking away at the bakery and a BUNCH of other adventures that I cannot wait to share with you. All of which will benefit this wonderful community; a community that I dedicated my upcoming book to. It was this celiac community that extended a hand to grab when I was sinking deep into depression, worry, fear and loneliness. The burden from this disease was overwhelming to begin with but the fact the doctors, family and friends didn’t have the answers for…

A new beginning

I love these. I called them wishing flowers when I was a kid. We used to close our eyes, make a wish and blow. If all the seeds blew off, your wish would come true. September has always felt like a new beginning to me.   Maybe it’s old memories of getting back to school,   or the end of Summer bringing the new start of Fall.  Whatever it is, it brings a sense of starting again, a chance for renewal, which I absolutely love.  Well, I’m going to take liberties with this feeling of renewal right here.  As many of…

Wonder What I Have Been Doing? Wonder Where I Have Been?

I am here!!!!!!!!!!!!!! So much to say I don’t even know where to start!!!! I will start with where on earth I’ve been. Bahamas? No. Italy? No. Lower East side NYC? YES!

As most of you know I opened a gluten free, dairy free, soy free, and peanut free bakery that is mostly vegan, organic and a SAFE ZONE for people like us. Yes I’m actually there baking away! Its been a long, long road getting this passion project off the ground and MOST of the time…

As you know the bakery is up and running and so are the promised lectures with my FAVORITE DOC, Dr. Fratellone!

Really Gluten Free? Or just a sad way to make an extra 1.50?

Hey All, Yes I’ve been on radio silence lately with the completion and opening of the bakery. But more about that later. First I want to share a little story about something that happened the other day that I, for one, have had it with. It was a few days ago (about two days before the opening of my sweet little bakery) while my BFF, Rick, was helping me with last minute details (of which there were many)!  We were both hungry and needed something fast to eat. Which as all you Celiacs and gluten challenged people know is next…
