About Me

My photo
I am mom to a 15 year old boy and identical twin 6 year old boys. I am the wife of a wonderful man. I have had celiac disease for 15 years. Those things define me in that order, everything else falls in line! I homeschool because the public school system was just letting my smart child slip through not learning a thing, on the honor roll no less. While I eat a completely gluten free diet I don't keep a gluten free household. No reason to make the kids suffer with me! I am writing a gluten free cookbook (slowly!) because I can't stand all the gluten free recipes out there that use five hundred flours, and I want to eat normal food like non-celiacs do. Just like I used to, I use one all purpose flour that ROCKS, The Gluten Free Pantry's All Purpose Flour. No, I do not get paid to say that ;) Every recipe on my blog can also be made with regular flour, use it just like I use my gf flour!

Creating a model DNA double helix

I was so proud of Big Kid, he did this one just about on his own! I had to help with some wiring issues, but this is his work!! He even knew the names of the adenine, cytosine, guanine and thymine! I was so proud, he was even using the saying I taught him to remember how they combine - "DNA is where it's AT". The A and T always attach, leaving the C and G to attach. Science was my "thing" in school, it's fun to see my child taking an interest at all! He hasn't liked science much unless I was chemically altering something, preferably at a rapid loud explosive rate.
