A Few Things...

I've been a bit lax in my posting the last few days. I have not been feeling well; in fact, I had to see a doctor for what turned out to be dehydration! The moral of the story? Drink lots of liquids, kiddies. Apparently I haven't been drinking enough. After Thursday evening's flamenco class (which was very challenging), I had been feeling run down and it finally caught up to me. Note to self: bring water AND Gatorade to class next time.

Today I received a copy of a soon-to-be-released gluten free cookbook, Gluten-Free Quick & Easy by Carol Fenster, PhD. I got an e-mail last week from someone at Penguin Group offering me a chance to review the book, and I could not pass it up! So far it's a great read and I am anxious to try some of the recipes. I'll share my thoughts on the book very soon. Also I'll be forwarding some questions to the author, which I hope to post here as well. Carol's website is www.glutenfreequickandeasy.com.

In addition, I'm looking forward to receiving some samples of gluten-free goodies from a place called Grindstone Bakery. They offer a variety of wonderfully delicious-sounding bread and cookies. I can't wait to try these products! Visit their website, http://www.grindstonebakery.com/ for more details about their products.

Finally, my buddy Lynn over at Free to Eat reworked the recipe I posted last week for sesame candy--and morphed it into a cocoa and coconut candy that sounds absolutely divine! I'm going to make a batch asap. Lynn's blog is at http://www.freetoeat.blogspot.com/. For those of you who haven't had a chance to visit her blog, Lynn is an uber-creative lady who has had to reinvent the way she cooks and eats due to multiple food sensitivities. And her family likes to rock-out just like my family does! One day her clan and mine are going to have to get together for one big jam session. Rock on!

I am glad you got help! WATER BOY! She needs some H2O...phew! sometimes it is something simple. Glad that's all it was.
You are the BEST! I look forward to our clans meeting. What a blast that will be. HUGS

Thanks for the well wishes! I am starting to feel better. AND I've been drinking tons of water and chasing them with Gatorade.

it's funny how the first comment causes our brain to stop after every word because of the period even though we were reading it silently. It would probably even be faster if we read it out loud than silently. :) water is needed in an infinite number of ways :)
