I was delighted to read Media Post's Marketing Daily article on Friday about the burgeoning gluten free market (now estimated at $1.56 Billion). After being diagnosed with Celiac disease in 2002, I immediately removed gluten from my diet, only to realize how expensive and hard-to- find gluten free products were. Over the past 7 years, as the article mentions and my experience confirms, I have gotten used to rice and quinoa pastas, but they generally don't taste nearly as good as I remember the… Continue

I moved to Aspen and got a job working at Photographer’s Aspen, a small photographer’s cooperative for leading editorial assignment shooters. I helped to market their images for stock. Snuggled in the midst of an Aspen Grove, our old ranch style building also housed the Tenth Mountain Hut Division offices. I had radically changed my life from living in the chaos of New York City to living in one of the healthiest towns in America. I rode my bike to work and religiously hiked up the Ute Trail,… Continue

Since I have my MIL (mother-in-law) here I decided to dedicate this one in her honor. Here is my next dose of the Mommy Niri Friday 5 series
I love living with my mother-in-law (MIL) because:
* I will have someone else’s food wasted other than my own. Although she is a pretty good cook, my MIL has not met my 2 two selective (read super fussy) kids. Cooking for them is a pain I am willing to… Continue

I have heard it said several times about ensuring that when we introduce food to babies to keep our personal biases out of the radar. This is so that we do not feed kids our prejudices, literally. Did I listen to that bit of smart advice? No, of course not. Was it because I thought I knew better? No. The truth was I did not have the courage (or stomach) to do it. Like I don’t eat (or like) tomatoes so my kids have not eaten it (does ketchup count?). Don’t start to pity their cuisine… Continue

Arthritis is called an inflammatory disease and can do great damage to your joiints but recently I read where it can be a major cause of heart disease. The drugs to control inflammation are dangerous so I began a quest for a more natural approach to control inflammation. There is a promising new product about to launch that should control inflammation and I am looking for those who do reviews on their blogs and want to do a review of the product to please email me. We will be accepting just a… Continue

I can't believe the number of things I hear myself say that just sound ridiculous. Things that I would've never said before I was a parent.
"Give me that booger" (I should just let her wipe it on her clothes if there isn't a tissue around but I am weird that way. Better to have it in my back pocket...for luck, right? lol)
"My shirt is not a kleenex/ paper towel"
"Get your butt off my face"
"No, I don't want to smell your… Continue

One thing about our 2 daughters is that they laugh constantly! I'm not talking about the pity laugh you get as a parent when your child is placating you, but the all-out belly laugh, usually brought on by the eating of tummies, or the chasing around the house threatening to tickle until they can't talk anymore. Granted, I've also received the "yeah mom, that was funny" by my 3-year old, but she'll laugh at almost anything. I've realized that their love of laughter has made them hilarious little… Continue

What's more challenging: Being a Teen or Raising a Teen?
The teenage years are a time of transition for both parent and child as each struggles with boundaries of dependence, responsibility and independence. We learn what is ours and what is not. But lets face it, parents have the advantage of years of wisdom and experience, while teens are just getting started.
Teens can be overwhelmed by waves of normal emotional and physical changes as they navigate… Continue

The one that got away....
Oh, in my story there are many. I was never a long timer in relationships. I think my longest was a year, and whew, that seemed like an eternity. I always tease Jimmy that he is my longest relationship.
I have the story that I think most girls have.
I've definitely had my heart broken. I've been hurt, lied to, misunderstood, unforgiven, broken up with for no reason, strung along...even cheated on by two different guys who I honestly… Continue

I want to share some tips with you on how I save money—and who doesn’t want to these days—while being kind to our environment.
1. Save cardboard, address stickers, and toilet rolls for art and craft projects
Growing up in Germany, I remember that my mother always collected little boxes and toilet rolls and would drop them off at our kindergarten when she had saved up a whole bag. We would use those materials for art and craft projects. Do people do that here as well?… Continue

If you'd ever considered the Kindle 2 for yourself and wondered what others think of it, I've written a review at http://www.onestopboyshop.com/blog.
In short, I was skeptical of liking it, and pleasantly surprised that I actually enjoyed it! I'm a gadget girl, and very into technology but when it comes to books, I'm very old fashioned. I love books and thought that the Kindle would not be something that I could enjoy.
Feel free to check out my entire review at… Continue
