The Elusive, Enjoyable Gluten-Free Pizza
Not all pizza is created equal. And, I'll be honest: I'm a pizza snob. Having lived in Italy for over a year after I graduated from college, I have had a lot of pizza. A lot. Pizza was my go-to snack with the kids for whom I was an  au pair.  And, after my ...

This is one of my very favorite Greek desserts, but I've never been brave enough to try it. I'll give it a try soon.
For July we dove right into Corelli's Mandolin by Louis De Bernieres for The Book Club Cook Book Cooking Challenge. Sadly, this is our final post for the group as we posted a year's worth of great reads and great food finds. This month was once again hosted by Camilla from Culinary Adventures ...

I have been going to this office for years, but what prompted me to write a review was that I just took my two kids to see Dr. Sethi. I'm not sure why I've been avoiding taking them to an eye doctor; they see their regular pediatrician annually. But we finally went and it turns out that one of my kids needs glasses, the other one doesn't. What I liked about this experience: they did a COMPLETE eye screening on the boys, including visual acuity, pupil function, extraocular muscle motility, visual fields, intraocular pressure and ophthalmoscopy through a dilated pupil. Both the doctor and assistants were patient with the boys' many questions and thorough in their answers. I appreciate any business that doesn't rush me out and speaks to my kids directly, not always through the parent. In the end - with my child who needs glasses - they were thorough with their sizing, cognizant of my budget, and delivered everything in a timely manner. I highly recommend Dr. Sethi's office and was just reminded - through their email system - that it's my turn for my annual eye exam.
