Sassy Slipped Up!

Already? I know, kind of embarrassing, but I’m not beating myself up about it too much…my pounding head is doing that enough on its own! I did really well for most of the day.  Then a few things went awry, and then I had some anxiety creep in about some things, and everyone around me […]

Let’s Just Call It: SASSTEMBER!

Click Here For Images & Have A Sassy Saturday Pictures – Pictures SASSTEMBER 😉 That’s right. I said it. 🙂 Well, it’s not really a “challenge” and it’s not really an “elimination diet”, though it is both of those things, on many levels. So, I thought I’d give it a name.  LOL  That’s what I […]

SEPTANUARY: the new month for new beginnings?

Okay, so maybe it’s not really a “NEW” phenomenon.  I know when I was still in school, September was always a big deal.  And for those with kids, I imagine the same must be true.  And even though I’m no longer in school, I think the years (and years, and years) of schooling have still […]

G.I. NO!

“I can’t help you.” Wow.  That’s something nobody wants to hear from their specialist. It was bad enough when he told me my case was a “challenge”.  Now, he has furthered that with “unusual” and admission of an inability to help. QUICK RECAP: Sick for years and years, finally came to a head when I […]

Yummy Asian Potstickers: gluten-free, dairy-free

I kind of can’t believe that I made potstickers. Never in my life would I have imagined that I would be making potstickers.  That is the luxury of a life without food intolerances or allergies.  There are just things that you would never really cook/make/bake, because if you really had a hankering, you could just […]


  No, not good happy little dreams.  Bad dreams.  Nightmare-ish, even.  Although, my nightmares tend to be on a whole ‘nother level, so the word may be a little strong in this case. But they definitely leave a bad taste in my mouth…so to speak 😉 Ever since going gluten-free, I frequently have dreams where […]


I found myself shouting this silently last week, in a minor, but significant, inward outburst. Fog?  Gluten ataxia?  Some other ailment that is currently unknown? I don’t know what it is.  And I don’t really know how to explain it, though I’ve talked about it before. Impressive, is what it is.  Infuriating…even more so. Yes, […]

Confessions of a Celiac: I spit it out!

I’m completely ashamed of myself. It’s funny how hard we are on ourselves about accidental gluten.  I honestly didn’t want to tell anyone.  Here I am, still sick all the time, being super duper careful, and then, on a whim, it briefly went out the window. Yes, it was an accident. And I didn’t swallow […]

What’s the newest […]

SHANDHAR HUT: Gluten-Free Review

From the outside, Shandhar Hut could almost go unnoticed.  This would be a terrible shame…especially for all you Celiacs!  Upon entering, I immediately enjoyed the smells, the decor, and the atmosphere.  The first time I had been in the restaurant, I had only ordered take-out, and the restaurant looked quite small, intimate.  This time, they […]
