It took a heap of mishaps and maladies to keep me offline for an entire season...
And it took 12 days off school for a blizzard to get me back on. :-)
Fall is never my healthiest season, and this one was not my easiest. When someone in your family has food allergies, though, you have to carry on in the kitchen, not with carryout.
2016 has been good to all of us so far (though it is early), and I am excited to be enjoying myself in the kitchen again.
Ten days into our blizzard break, we have played every game, tried every sledding hill, and stayed in jammies so long that it isn't quite fun anymore. But we are just getting into our baking groove: coconut macaroon playdates, pancakes midday, and warm oat bread for breakfasts and desserts.
You'll also notice some big changes to the website, courtesy of my extra free time not spent running errands, schlepping kids, and cramming in fitness.
In these last 2 days of blizzard break, I'd like to wrap up the changes to streamline my recipe posts...starting with that thick and chewy oat bread.
I am excited to be back online, and I hope that you will enjoy the new recipes to come in 2016!
Hi, I'm Nicole.
ABOUT THE BLOG
An apothecary is a person or a place. Either one implies healing and relates to pharmacy in its truest sense, as a source of treatment and advice.
This blog is my way of uniting my pharmacy training with my efforts to provide a healthy and safe lifestyle for my family. In true apothecary form, I research and prescribe alternative ingredients that work just right in each specific recipe, and I would like to share the results with anyone who needs help making their own family’s kitchen allergy safe and heart healthy.
