In Topic: How Do I Stop Being So Generous?

19 July 2011 - 06:45 PM

My kids like to try my gluten free cookies and waffles. Mostly I say no and don't feel to bad about although I do share sometimes. Most of the time they think it tastes strange and don't like it anyway but sometimes they really like it. I just started baking my own items from stratch and don't mind sharing those, so far they are even better than store bought.

Has anyone tried to make their own lara bars btw? Would love to try that although I can get them at the commissary on base for only .88 cents each. I usually buy an entire box but they don't carry every flavor.

Didn't lose a pound! But I was a bit overweight before and still am although weight watchers is now helping with that.

I took a bunch to work because I had NO self control on these and no one would have known they were gluten free if I hadn't told them.

Ok, I tried to add the link but it got all wonky and when I check it it said "company name removed because they spammed the forum"? sorry.

Is this from "Artisanal Gluten-Free Cooking" cookbook by Kelli Bronski and Peter Bronski?


Pretty sure it's the same people but different book. This one is all cupcakes and has a cupcake on the cover. Is it ok to post a link?

In Topic: I Am A Widow At Age 42

I would be wanting to stay where my friends were and not moving, if I lived in a place like that. The severe weather has been especially horrible down here in many parts of the midwestern/southeastern lower 48 for over a decade, alternating between drought, flood, and tornados, and you could not pay me to move back to that part of the country. I love the open terrain, but people are a lot nicer where I'm at now, I've had some "stress moments" in the past and there is just some real not good people in some areas, hyped up with a lot of paranoia, not a good combination during natural disasters. I keep saying, at least during the power outages here, my immediate neighbors aren't going to go crazy.

Thank you everyone for your replies.
I know what you mean but long term I can't afford to stay here. Plus my family is wonderful and I want my kids to grow up closer to their family. I love Oklahoma and am going to stay with my parents for a year and then find a place close to them out in the country. My kids have lots of cousins and other family they have never met. And I do like my husband's family, it's just they were a little weird on this trip.

Alaska is wonderful but the winters are very hard. If my other neighbors hadn't moved to Hawaii I wouldn't be so worried because he had always helped me with stuff while Doug was away for the military.
