Visit NH: 7 Days At Lake Waukewan

My heart will forever be in New England. There is something about your childhood home that always calls you back. When you visit, all those nostalgic emotions and feelings bubble up inside you. The good and the bad. With maturity and time, the good memories always seem the most real. For my birthday, my family sent me plane tickets for a 7 day New Hampshire Getaway. Last year, my parents sold my childhood home and moved to Lake Waukewan. This visit was to experience everything their new place had to offer. I wasn’t disappointed. If you aren’t familiar with the Lakes Region of NH, Lake Waukewan is located in the towns of Meredith, New Hampton and Center Harbor. It feeds Lake Winnipesaukee via a waterfall you can visit at Mill Falls Marketplace. This blog is to share my personal adventures with the hope that your New Hampshire summer vacation might…

2 Nights in Savannah: Where to Play and Eat Gluten Free

March is an eventful month for us. It’s our dating and wedding anniversary and we always plan a trip to celebrate. This year we chose a two night road trip to Savannah, Georgia. We have friends from Sandals Grande Antigua who retired in Savannah. They suggested we stay with them while touring the Savannah Historic District. Our friends live in Midtown, only four hours from Charlotte, North Carolina. The road trip from the Queen City was uneventful. We stopped halfway in Columbia, South Carolina, at the Famous Toastery for gluten free breakfast. Our arrival time was 11:00 AM, which gave us 1.5 days of sightseeing left. Read on to learn more about what we saw and where we ate in this beautiful, southern city. Day 1 1.

Sandals Resort LaSource Grenada: Gluten Free Review

Traveling with food allergies is a burden I would not wish on my worst enemy. Every trip involves hours of research and communication with airlines, restaurants, resorts and event coordinators. When the trip arrives, you leave armed with detailed information. However, there is still a nagging feeling of fear that you can’t get rid of. Most people get excited about eating at a new place. For me, having Celiac Disease, each time I start to eat at an unknown location I wait for the tell-tale signs that I have been glutened. My biggest fear is getting sick on vacation in a world far away from the comforts of home. The last time I was exposed to gluten, I was down for three days in severe pain and couldn’t eat anything. This is the last experience I want on vacation. If your travel planning story sounds anything like mine, I’d like…

Recipe: Apple Coffee Cake

Here we are again, halfway through the week! Congrats on making it this far. 🙂 The weather finally changed over the weekend and we now feel like fall in the south east. The days still may reach 80+ degrees, but the evenings are amazing! When the weather chills out, my kitchen warms up. All week scents of cinnamon and pumpkin spice have been wafting through my home. What about you? Since I’m on a roll with fall recipes, I thought I would share a perfect treat to accompany your ‘cup of joe’ in the mornings. Check out this Apple Coffee Cake! I can’t take all the credit for this one. I was walking through the bakery aisle at Earth Fare and I saw a “gluten” version of this cake and thought, I bet I could make this. Once my groceries were unpacked, I hit up Google and found this wonderful…
