I Figured Out Why I Gained A Little Weight!

I found a wonderful opportunity to apply for an internship to learn about blogging, writing, etc. In the application you had to show them your "writing style" in a 200 word introduction of yourself (much harder then it sounds.....even for a talker like me!) In my introduction, I mentioned I like to cook.

Now many of you know that I am allergic to wheat, mushrooms, peanuts and potatoes and that Katelynn is allergic to corn including corn syrup. What you might not know is corn is the hardest thing to remove from a diet, especially for a 7 1/2 year old, and wheat is the second hardest thing to remove from a diet. (Milk is the third hardest ingredient to remove.)

Because of this, I cook and bake from scratch, really from scratch. I even make most of our sauces from scratch. Well let me tell you something about baking, cooking and even creating recipes from scratch......You CAN'T Do That WITHOUT Tasting your recipes now can you!

Now I know what you all are thinking, "Come on Rebecca, that can't pack on the pounds you have over the past couple of years." Well maybe that is true, but that's my story and I'm sticking to it! HA!

I refuse to accept that it's those yummy, evil doing Ice Blended Mocha's that you all know I LOOOOOVVVVE so much, no matter what my doctor says. I don't know what she is worried about anyway, I gave up the whipped topping, now my doc says I need to ask for non-fat! Ummmmm, like what is the point in having an Ice Blended if there is no whip AND no fat?

So I guess I am going to have to give up taste testing my recipes before I serve them to my family and friends. Hmmmmmm, bet you all don't want to eat at our house anymore, huh?!?!?!?!?!?!

Take Care and Make It Fun!
