Inviting the allergens into the house

I rarely talk about my cat on this blog, but I have one and I absolutely love her. She has been with our family for about 14 years and she is super sweet, especially around our son. When he was a baby, she would rub up against his toes until he giggled. Today, they are good buddies and she always comes into his room to help me wake him up for school.…

10 Things Kids with Food Allergies Want You to Know

Mars Cheese Castle in Wisconsin


Mommy,” she moves toward me. Her gaze is locked, voice shaky. “My throat feels funny."

“Funny, like a scratchy tickle or funny like you can't swallow?"

“Just really funny,” Veronica shrugs her shoulder.

“Can you swallow?” I ask the important question.

She nods her head, “Yes.”

Shit, what did she eat? and I immediately act giving her a dose of…

A Bug Bite or An Allergic Reaction...What is it?

I cannot be the only one…actually, this time I may be close to being the only one, whose son’s ear has mysteriously swollen to two times its normal size literally overnight. One of the hardest parts of being a mom is a sick kid, the common cold that causes a red chapped nose, a stomach bug that causes a horrifying bathroom mess (if your lucky it’s only the bathroom), or a rather peculiar case of earlobe swelling, whatever the infirmity is as a mom I feel my child’s pain (with an added dose…

How Can I Determine if My Baby is Allergic to Formula or Dairy Products in Breast Milk?

If you read my blog post yesterday about “Does My Baby Need a Specialty Formula?“, you probably noticed that I briefly mentioned that some mom’s felt that their baby seemed to be having issues digesting the cow’s milk formula (regular formula).  Allergies are on the rise  and more parents are…

Ah! Ah! Achoooooo!!

Usually during the months of March and August, I start seeing the TV commercials with the annoying bee (why does he have that accent anyway?) and the happy people telling us to get Claritin Clear.  These commercials promise that you’ll be sneezing less, breathing easier and ready to work in the garden or play with your…

Trust the Gut

I may not know what the hell I'm doing half the time with this whole parenting gig, but one thing that I have learned from experience is to trust my gut when it comes to my kids.  (After all, they're the ones who are responsible for making it a lot less flat than it used to be).  So if my gut is telling me that my daughter is, in fact, sick, I'm sure as shit gonna listen to…

Fluffy Pancakes (gluten & dairy-free!)

I’ve already mentioned that my food obsession extends from the kitchen to television and magazines. Thanks to the DVR I never miss an episode of Top Chef or The Next Iron Chef, and I love getting my Food Network, Clean Eating and Cooking Light magazines in the mail. I also often print off recipes from other blogs or the Food Network website, all of which I compile in my beloved…

Building a Better Brownie

One way I’ve learned to get my kids excited about their adult relative’s birthdays is to get them excited about creating a healthy treat in honor of the event. The boy and girl have come to associate their father with peanut butter, their grandfather with chocolate chip cookies and their “Nana” with brownies. My parents came to visit from NJ today to celebrate my mother’s birthday, so of course the occasion called for some brownies.

If you’re looking for a good, straight-forward…

Are You a Lazy Reader?

I Am.  I say short books rule.  I've never understood people who pick up a 700 page book with gusto.  What are they thinking?  That's hours of time with eyes glued on print.   I get it, the story can be amazing and transfer you to an incredible place.  I just don't think that I have the stamina to go there.  Do me a favor and turn that book into 5 different books and I'll bet more people would gladly pick it up. 


I've recently discovered…
