Thank you to all of you who have left comments. Please continue to do so.

With getting married, relocating and trying to find work, I apologize for the lack of entries on my blog.

I am dedicating most of my recipes, going forward, to those with Celiac's Disease. I have been eating a clean, 100% *gluten free diet, but if anyone has requests regarding recipes that do include *gluten (*the protein found in wheat, rye and barley), please let me know. I am always busy creating new and wonderful clean recipes. I want to help you ALL achieve a successful clean eating lifestyle.

I wish you all the most success to feeling your best with clean eating!
