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! Not as glamorous as you might think – but for sure more rewarding. 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…

YOU Asked for IT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! its back

As you know the bakery is up and running and so are the promised lectures with my FAVORITE DOC, Dr. Fratellone! He is the DOC, CELIAC DOC, responsible for introducing me to the roataion diet and getting me to be able to function again. We had our first lecture last month all about the wonderful roatation diet and on popular demand are going to be doing another one soon. Go to bakery page for updates. Also back by popular demand is my All Purpose Flour and Pancake Mix. I took it down for awhile because I’ve changed it quite a…

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…

MY CELIAC IS NOT YOUR CELIAC!

There has been some back and forth from some of you about my recent blog – about my disgust with the lack of care for what goes into our gluten free food and major manufactures.  Some wrote that Dunkin Donuts new gluten free products are being made in a clean environment and that I should have researched that.  I did, and stated that in my blog.  Other comments were about your children being able to feel normal and being able to grab a donut with friends.  Yet another said it looked bad that I’m calling out Dunkin Donuts maybe because…

“It’s Gluten Free but NOT for Celiacs.” WTF?!

Hi Friends,  if you have followed my blog you probably know that I like to keep things moving in a positive direction.  Living with Celiac disease is enough to deal with without adding fuel to the fire by letting nonsense get to me.  Yes sometimes my health situation gets the best of me and I allow myself to wallow a bit,  but not for long.  In the past 3 months I decided to take the leap and open the bakery and a safe zone that I have been dreaming about since my diagnosis. I’m happy to say Jennifer’s Way Bakery…

2013 is Here! How Will You FEEL Better?!!!!!

Hope everyone had a wonderful holiday season!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Now onto a new year, again.  Every year we make promises to ourselves to quit something, change something or start something.  I’m suggesting only one thing to adapt this year, BE KIND TO YOURSELF!  Forget all the pressure you put on yourself and incorporate treating yourself well.  That begins, in my opinion, with taking care of your health! Being Celiac, as many of you know takes tons of time, patience, self education, constant scrutiny of food, planning, and much, much more.  So why put even MORE pressure on yourself by silly resolutions. Don’t…
