If you are visiting my site and blog, or social media accounts, for the first time at the end of 2017: Welcome!
This is a quick post, just to say that I mostly met my challenge goal of blogging and/or media chatting every week in 2017...until the winter holidays, when I realized:
1) how much time I (love to) spend holiday prepping
2) how lucky I am to have such amazing kids and wonderful husband
3) how time consuming it is to rework a diet---again---during holiday treat fests.
So, I haven't disappeared permanently, but I have decided to take the winter 2017 holiday time loosely off media and purposefully low-tech at home. So far, it's been delightful. And I'm even taking off much of my professional work at the end of 2017, so I should be ready to be full-on in 2018. My challenge goal for food/blog/media hobbying+writing in 2018?
Having a true schedule and plan for content, recipes, and FYIs to share and maintaining some kind of coordination across all of these techy platforms. And maybe printing paper cookbooks, because sometimes I like low-tech better. ;-)
If you're interested in some recipes that are tried and true for your holiday baking, check out my Kitchen Adventures and Cookie Chemistry books, in particular, on Amazon (or search the titles on iTunes if you're an Apple user).
Until 2018, wishing you all warmth, joy, and love---and delicious #freefrom foods,
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.
I made the 2017 Top-40 Food Allergy blogs!
