LIfestyle Change

Soooo.... things have been a bit crazy around here for the past few months. Just after my last post Finn developed some food allergies and had a bad reaction to my breast milk. Poor little man lost about a pound and a half in just one weekend. YIKES! After much experimentation, we finally narrowed it down to dairy, egg, and chocolate allergies. Since I'm nursing him, I've had to completely change my diet and open my eyes to a new way of living. It was challenging at first, but it's become a labor of love. Thank GOD for vegan chefs! I've been known to have a super sweet tooth, and since just about every dessert has chocolate, butter, milk, or eggs in it...I was in dire straights for almost two months. That is... until I discovered the vegan way of life. Just about every vegan dessert I've made is just as good or even BETTER than the traditional recipe. These are my second attempt at vegan chocolate cupcakes with a ganache icing. The pansies are from my window boxes. :)

GO VEGANS! Thanks to you, Finn is doing great and he has a happy mom.

When you get a moment, maybe you would like to share your recipe?! Those look amazing! Love the photos too. I wish little Finn AND you all the best as you grow and learn together. Babies are fun and challenging...but nothing compares. Nothing. =)

Heya this is kinda of off topic but I was wanting
to know if blogs use WYSIWYG editors or if you have to manually
code with HTML. I'm starting a blog soon but have no coding experience so I wanted to get guidance from someone with experience. Any help would be enormously appreciated! how long does ageless male take to work - ageless male - ageless male
