  1. Katy's soup sounds amazing! Here is a link for the recipe I use. Leave out the bacon to make it vegan. My favorite ready-made veggie broth is Imagine's No-Chicken Broth.

    Quivers Cinnamon Rolls

    I use the individual flours called for in the recipe. Her ratio is different than most flour blends. Otherwise, I use Vitacost GF Multibend flour which is a mix of brown rice flour, potato starch and tapioca starch

    Quivers Cinnamon Rolls

    These are my favorite gf cinnamon rolls. They are so, so good. You'd never know they weren't the real deal. Definitely watch the video to see how to roll them out easier.

    Birthday gift for best friend?

    I was surprised that I was able to do this! I chose to set up my own subscription plan and got $10. off my first order. I only paid $30. to have a small bag of coffee delivered 1x week for 4 weeks.

    These are so cool!
  9. Please help me brainstorm ideas for a birthday gift for my best friend. We've been friends for over 30 years. Her birthday is in 2 days, so I need to act fast! Also, we live several states away so I would have to get it delivered. The hardest part is that I'm on a really tight budget and can't afford anything too expensive. Here are some random facts about her that might help you figure out a good gift: She's a published author, book lover, coffee lover, health conscious, Muslim, likes make up and costume jewelry. I'm just fresh out of ideas and would be so grateful for your help!

    How often do you cook from scratch?

    I have to cook nearly everything from scratch, due to severe allergies. I feel trapped by it, because I can't take short cuts and it is so hard and time consuming. I make bread from scratch, vegan cheese, sauces, mayo, pretty much every ingredient that's not a fruit, veggie, meat or nut. I've broken down in the grocery store when I've been overwhelmed by the food all around me, but not being able to buy most of it On the other hand, I have become an expert chef by necessity. My family loves my cooking. And I'm so thankful that I have the means and ability to access the food I need to feed my daughter.
  11. I admire your strength. The light of Christ shines through your testimony and is truly a "beauty from ashes" story. I hope that this coming year brings you all good things. You deserve it!

    I need walking shoes

    If your pain feel like a knife jabbing into the back of your heel, it might be heel spurs causing your pain. A lot of times you can have pf along with heel spurs. Or you could have bursitis or Achilles tendinitis. I would recommend going to a podiatrist to figure out the source of your pain before finding the right shoes.

    Pelvic floor physical therapy

    I have had three rounds of pelvic floor therapy sessions over the course of 10 years, along with major pelvic floor surgery. I understand your feelings, especially with wanting to "be done with everything". Please feel free to pm me with any questions or concerns you have. When you have the right therapist, it makes all the difference in the world.

    Parents of RAD kids - triangulation?

    I'm so sorry. I get it too. After our 10 yr. old foster kid with RAD left our home, I look back at the situation and wished that I had emotionally disengaged a lot sooner. IMO, it's the only way to survive. Take care of physical needs and keep your heart completely guarded. I will never be the same person I was before this experience. I am broken, and the ripple effects in my family are far-reaching. If your husband cannot grasp what is at stake, like my husband couldn't, don't waste any emotional energy trying to be a team. Let him take over most of the interactions with your daughter. Give yourself time and space to get some rest and regroup. Prayers and hugs sent your way.
