New Year’s Eve Pasta Aioli

Happy New Year’s Eve! I can’t believe that the last day of the year is here. Where did 2018 go? It’s been a pretty amazing year for me – one of the best, in fact. I launched this blog, saw my favorite Broadway play,…

Giving Thanks for Thanksgiving

Thanksgiving has always been one of my favorite holidays. It’s a day to reflect on the past year over a delicious meal with friends and family. But for those of us with food allergies or sensitivities, this food-filled holiday can be anything but enjoyable….

What a crazy two weeks it has been! Time management is one of my stronger skills but trying to balance working, blogging, and entertaining my parents who were visiting for 10 days was definitely a challenge! Luckily, I’m finally caught up and getting back…

It’s no secret that I love tacos. I could really eat them every day. Mexican food is one of the easiest cuisines for me to eat because so much of it is based on corn, not flour. The tortilla chips are corn and I…
