I’m finally back working on my blog. I took a long break to settle into and just enjoy the new life that I am living now.
Many things have changed for me over the last year. I’m happier and more at peace than I have been in a long time.
I realized after a week or two of my new stress-free life that what I had thought were additional food allergy problems were not bothering me anymore. I had no idea how stressed I really was. I also didn’t have a clue how unhappy I had been until my situation changed. I immediately felt energetic and incredibly happy again. It was really a shock to find out that I had actually been depressed without realizing it.
I’ve been doing a lot of cooking and have come up with many new recipes that I can’t wait to share with you.
Since our Arizona summers are so hot, I do all of my baking during the cooler winter months. Lately I have been playing with a lot of muffin and cookie recipes. My new Carrot Cake Muffins have 3 cups of shredded carrots and 1/2 cup of chopped pineapple, so they are very moist and taste incredible.
I still have a very long list of recipes that I want to test before it gets hot again.
Healthy, great tasting, gluten free food with less sugar will continue to be the focus for my recipes.
Gardening has become a very enjoyable part of my life again. Frank and I love watching the hummingbirds as they zoom around the flowers and chase each other in and out of our yard. Everything that we plant is chosen because it has blossoms that attract hummingbirds and butterflies.
It doesn’t get any better than sitting on your patio before sunset, just enjoying beautiful flowers and letting the hummingbirds entertain you!
Thank you to all of my readers for sticking with me while I sorted out my life!
