Quiche Amazing

Every year for Ostara I make my famous springtime quiche for brunch. This year was no different. For some reason I don’t think about quiche very much between holidays but this time I realized something: I don’t make quiche the way everyone else does. And I realized something else: my quiche is better. I had […]

Preparedness – Quarantine Kit

Even really serious diseases like Influenza, which kills thousands of people each year in the US is referred to as “just the flu” […]

Lots of people hate the holidays. For me hate isn’t the right word. For me, the holidays are a struggle. And they are toxic. From Thanksgiving to Christmas it’s like one big anxiety attack. Not to mention every food trigger of my migraines (flashy lights, blinding sun shining off of snow) and fibromyalgia (ham, damp […]
