What Going Gluten Fr...

It’s been just over a year since I stopped eating gluten. The original reason I made the switch from wheat based flour to rice based flour was an article about the ways in which gluten can negatively impact someone with a thyroid disorder – which is something I have. I’ll...

get to know Brooke

We had so much fun sharing a little bit about Paige that we thought we’d interview Brooke too! Why do you blog? “It’s an excuse to get out into the community and participate in things I might not otherwise. It reminds me to take pictures of things too, which is nice. I like...

get to know Paige

As a blogger, I attend a monthly get-together of other local bloggers. It gets us antisocial folks out from behind our laptops and out into the world where we can meet each other. While we sometimes talk shop, usually the conversation is more personal. In an effort to bring some of that...

Now that I use a dry mix to make my pizza dough, I have less control over how much dough I make at once. Since often times I’m only cooking for one or two I only need a small pizza. The mix I use is supposed to make two 12″ pizzas, but I usually split it into three slightly...
