For me, summer is usually frustrating. It’s usually spent fretting, waiting for publishers to get their asses in gear (they practically shut down during summer and it’s really hard to get them to move with any speed on anything), and I usually spend most of the days in my office (not unusual) due to deadlines […]

I was asked recently if I’d put more low carb recipes on the blog. Unfortunately, given my histamine intolerance, some of the foods I relied on to keep me really low carb are off the menu: fish, nuts, pork, bacon, tomatoes, spinach, absolutely no strawberries, in fact most berries are out unless they’re frozen, nut […]

So, the other day I wrote a post on Histamine Intolerance and what it is, and what it isn’t. So to continue the discussion. What foods can you eat and what can’t you have when you have HIT? It all depends. Other than foods I’m actually allergic to, this condition has limited a lot of […]

I took a good part of yesterday off.  I’m looking forward to Thanksgiving and the holidays, even if in a quieter mood this year than last. Yes, I’m reeling from the shockwaves through our country this month, but I […]

Halloween, for us, is Samhain—the festival from which Halloween evolved. But I also give out treats. A couple years ago, it occurred to me that my own allergies prevented me from eating the candy we were handing out, so what about the children who might come trick-or-treating who have allergies? That’s when I found out […]

So I haven’t talked a great deal about this, but enough so that some of you know I’m having some severe allergy issues. And I’m not talking about this for sympathy—just to raise some awareness about a little known condition and also to make you aware of one of the main reasons I cannot travel […]

So, a few things have been happening. Tomorrow is Mabon, the Fall Equinox. For Pagans, it’s considered the second harvest—the harvest of fruits. You might think of it as a non-secular Thanksgiving, when we give gratitude to the Goddess of the Earth and the God of the Vine, and when we celebrate all that we […]
