GFAF Expo / 🌎 Day (4/22/17)

First, I'm just excited that we made it to Illinois safely yesterday! Secondly, today was amazing (what a way to celebrate Earth 🌎 Day!) The Lil Chef and I met some really awesome people and tried tons of new products at the Gluten Free Allergen Friendly Expo in Schaumburg, IL
It felt so weird to go some where, outside of home, eat and not get sick. I snacked and tasted and drank and NOT one stomach issue, no migraines, no symptoms! Actually being able to eat with no symptoms was a surreal feeling. I invited my cousin and her daughter (from Indiana) who also has food allergies and we will be attending tomorrow as well. Any chance I get to show someone else, someone new the many options that "food allergy people" have, I'm taking it! I love that these types of events exist! We have options and the majority of them are healthy/good for you.

Slightly off the food subject for a second. I am in shock that I feel as well as I do. I'm sure all of the healthy supplements and medical devices I tested today really helped.
I have been in tremendous pain leading up to this trip. The chronic pain/illness Gods are on my side!
I am feeling better than I regularly do but I am little too tired to review some of the products that I tried today. After the expo tomorrow I will do another post regarding the products, companies, etc.

Thank you for being patient with me!

Hough Bakery - butter cookies

Hough Bakery By Gail Greenberg&Diane Rolfe Hough Bakery was an integral part of me and my family's lives, (most people in Cleveland for that matter) I was heartbroken when they closed. I have always remembered the cookies and doughnuts from this magical bakery. Their products were like nothing I had ever had before (and it was extra magical because I was so little/young) I have been searching for about 30 years for something similar - no luck... but, thank goodness there are a few recipes floating around the internet! Unfortunately even with Archie's being open, my food afflictions will not allow me to enjoy those old time favorites. Luckily, converting is what I do and that's what this site is about so I will switch some things around and see how it turns out! The recipe below is just ONE of my all time favorites, please enjoy! Memories of a signature blue-and-white, string-tied cake box filled with a streusel coffee cake, hot cross buns, sticky pecan rolls, coconut cho…
