No Bake. No Fuss. Customizable Energy Bites

To this day, I still play with my food. Throwing caution to the wind, tossing in whatever ingredients I feel like, all while doing that inner two-year-old dance (you know the one where you just kind of awkwardly bouncing up and down….) to whatever song catches my mood at the time. I think that’s why I’m so excited about this recipe!  You can completely customize these energy bites to please your taste buds all without strict measurements and directions. Heck, don’t even use a measuring cup if you don’t want to. This can sound scary I know, but trust...

3 Itch Busting Eczema Bath Recipes

There is nothing I love more than sinking into a nice warm bath after a long, hard day. Something about the heat and the water seems to just melt all your stresses away (and the wine, the wine helps too). Since developing eczema I’ve been told that if I want to enjoy my precious baths, that the recommended bath time is 5-10 minutes. However, through sheer determination and perhaps a shred of pigheadedness I’ve seen to it that a warm bath is never wasted. So if you’re a bath lover like me, here are three bath recipes for you...

But just in case you don’t, just add a couple ounces of rum and you’ll be well on your way to forgetting that you don’t like them. To make sure these drinks were island worthy I donned on my shorts and sunglasses, put ‘Escape‘ by Rupert Holmes on replay, plopped down in a lawn chair and spent the afternoon slaving away taste testing each and every one of these recipes. It was hard work, but someone had to do it. With each making the...

Therefore, read my disclaimer and use the information within my blog appropriately and at your own risk. What is eczema? Eczema is referred to as atopic dermatitis.

Dermatitis means inflammation of the skin. Atopic dermatitis is not contagious, but rather is typically inherited and found in...

How To Eat At Friends And Loved Ones Homes With Dietary Restrictions

It’s amazing how a gathering that’s supposed to bring so much joy and laughter can become such a challenging and awkward situation. Being lactose intolerant (and with dairy being my number one eczema trigger), I swear my hands start itching when I watch milk being added to a dish. I hold my breath while I listen to the host’s ingredient list being rambled off praying for a dish I can eat itch and worry-free… “…potatoes…onions…cheese” Dammit. Been there? Me too. It’s awkward being the one people have to accommodate for, but here’s how to survive it. Remind your host...
