Earlier this year, I dyed and chopped my signature bright red, waist-long hair into a platinum-blonde angle-bob a la Carrie Bradshaw circa SATC Season 5. The confident itaintnothang-ness of a short ‘do has long been both inspiring and frightening to me.  I always wanted to be one of those women who unapologetically sauntered around with short-hair-don’t-care. ...

This month’s Goodebox was rock solid.  Call it luck of the Irish, but I definitely scored with every item — from the product-with-a-purpose Rafiki Water Bracelet to the highly hydrating gluten-free Pangea Organics Lip Balm and everything in between (ie: American Provenance Natural Deodorant, which I used for a week already and it WORKS, and the...

 It was 11:45am on Tuesday when I decided I was hungry.  And not just hungry – hungry for BREAKFAST. Sadly, my gluten-free golden child, Hu Kitchen, stopped serving breakfast at 11:30AM, not only leaving me out on a lunchtime lurch but also striking a sensitive nerve with me [cue childhood flashback montage of justmissing McDonald’s breakfasts]. I...

  So this is new: I love Miracle Noodles.  They randomly appeared in the fake-cheese and soy-stuff aisle at my local natural grocer one day so I bought a pack of them on a whim.  It took me a while (I mean, a water-y bag of spinach pseudo-noodles is not entirely appealing off the bat), but I finally whipped them up one morning when all I had in stock...

If you’ve been gluten-free for any length of time, you’re probably already bored of imitation bagels, cereals, pancakes and all their faux friends in the “gluten free” aisle.  Granted, they may be as delicious as their wheat-toting predecessors, but they’re filling, bloating and boring.  And they set you up for a crappy day…...

Quinoa is the perfect side dish for the gluten-free and gluten-ly diner alike.  It’s not only a naturally gluten-free grain, and one of the few plants considered a complete protein, but takes on the life of whatever you eat it with.  You can pretty much flavor it to your heart’s content — or just eat it plain, like steamed rice on steroids.  It’s...

This month’s Goodebox is a smell-good, feel-good bundle of …goodness!  Even after a year of boxes, they still manage to bring new brands to my attention and never fail to disappoint with quality. Ok, so let’s jump in: Alima Pure Natural Definition Brow Pencil I just dyed my hair for the first time in… all my time on Earth.  So it...

OK, so I’m a little obsessed with Mac con Queso.  But, honestly, who the hell isn’t. My old go-to recipe was my famous (linked above) Not Yo’ Mama’s Mac n Cheese and, while there is nothing intrinsically wrong with the formula here, I wanted to offer a dairy-free version as well.  I am mostly dairy-free these days and am happy to...

A fabulous Fall side dish for virtually any meal; here is my easy peasy — er, easy squashy — roasted butternut squash recipe for the simplest seasonal dining. What I love most about this recipe is how hearty and delicious it tastes without the heaviness and guilt of traditional side dishes like roasted or mashed potatoes.  A...

Break out your pumpkin-flavored party pants– Fall is upon us!  And with the falling foliage and building chill, we’re already starting to crave heartier, warmer and spicier flavors.  This easy fruit salad is my favorite fall feast companion.  You’ll need: One small pear One red apple Honey (amber or wildflower is great) Cinnamon Give...
