Originally I wanted to post my new gluten free sandwich bread recipe, but I apparently did not take pictures when I made it, nor did I write down all of the ingredients I threw in… and when I went to recreate it, I realized I had NO yeast. That is one of the most important ingredients, so I’ll have to save that recipe for another Tasty Tuesday. This is one of my favorite quick and absolutely delicious chicken recipes! Also gluten free!

I hugged my friend’s brother tightly and for what seemed like forever before we dropped our embrace. “We have to stop getting together like this!” I told him. “It better be like 100 years before we do this again!” We both laughed nervously. “We’ve already made a pact,” he said, gesturing toward his sister. “We’re not going anywhere.” This was our 3rd funeral in 2 years for their immediate family. First, their sister J passed away at just 38 years old. She had been fighting...

Every Newborn Action Plan – Officially Launched on June 30th…   Newborn health. A topic that has pretty much defined me for the past almost three years. Having lost a 2 day old, this is a topic that will never get old to me. No mother should have to watch her baby die… certainly not from preventable causes.   English: Newborn baby Copil Nou Nascut (Photo credit: Wikipedia)   So I am super excited that the Newborn Action Plan has finally arrived! Per Social Good Moms: The Every Newborn Action Plan aims to...

“I could eat this whole pan of meatloaf tonight!” my husband exclaimed. Now if you have the pleasure of knowing my husband in person, he is not exactly the complimenting type. Especially as it pertains to food. I’ve been subjecting them to all kinds of new and delightful recipes on this food journey, most of them unappreciated. But this new meatloaf… SCORE. I didn’t do anything revolutionary. I was just trying to find a way to “hide” veggies to get another serving or two in their food. And I also...

No Holding Back is a place where I advocate for topics of importance in the realms of child, newborn, and maternal health. Basically, if it impacts our children, I write about it. I advocate. I use my voice. And I try to get other parents to do the same. I had the opportunity to do something interesting the other day. I had the chance to put my money where my mouth was. To practice what I preach. To do what I’ve been telling other to do. And so on with the cliches! I participated in the Not One More campaign by going to the State...

I love the July 4th.  It’s a special holiday that is unique to us as Americans. Today I share my perspective on July 4th over at Columbia City Mom’s Blog. July 4th. We celebrate it loudly with firecrackers, parades, parties and backyard barbeques. Flags flap crisply in the breeze and we are all proud to be American. July 4th evokes thoughts of hot weather, potato salad, hot dogs and hamburgers, swimming and “chillaxing” as my kids now like to say. But it’s important for us to remember and reflect on the history, the...

Little Tiny took her first pony ride on M.G. (My Girl)         This horse is Jelly Bean’s preschool teacher’s horse. Since Jelly Bean loves horses so much, she graciously invited us out to take a ride.       ...

Bacon Wrapped Tuna Steaks I have so many recipes I want to share, since I’ve been experimenting so much with gluten free and paleo. So, I’ve decided to make Tuesdays “Tasty Tuesdays” unless something more important comes up! I really have bought into the idea that it all starts with food. A healthy gut is the answer to so many of our health and diet related issues. The month that I stuck to Whole 30, I’ve never felt better. And when I stopped the program, it didn’t take long before many of my symptoms...

I am an accidental activist. An accidental gun control activist. And other than advocating for newborn health, I think this is the most important thing I can spend my time focusing on. But maybe it’s not so accidental. Becoming a Gun Control Activist My whole life has led me to the point that I am at now. Advocating and taking a role of activism when necessary, for those who do not have a voice. My largest platform is obviously newborn and maternal health, children’s health issues, and pretty much anything that falls into those...
