hula ~ SO glad you and your family are OK. SIL recently survived a rollover where she flew off a ravine! It truly, truly makes you feel blessed to survive such a thing - SIL got her own business off the ground shortly thereafter after YEARS of dreaming about it. RE: Buffy ~ I used to be a HUGE Buffy fan. I agree that re-watching it, I find it disturbingly violent, angst-filled, and dark. I love the humor, the characters, and the sexy stuff , but I just won't expose...

Amris, I posted to your BFing thread. I have a lot of personal experience and resonance with how you've been feeling. I went through the same thing with Helen. Whether you end up leaving MDC or not, please read what I've said. Whatever the MDC-mandated stance is, there ARE alternatives and in your circumstances it's OK to pursue them!!! We're focused so much on 100% BFing success that we punish those who have truly tried and are truly at wit's end by making them feel...
Just say no to diflucan! Get thee to a healthfood store and buy some grapeFRUIT seed extract. In a little white bottle with a red cap. Put 10 drops GSE to one ounce water, and swish with a cottonball on your nipples after every feeding/pumping. It eradicated my thrush when every other treatment in the book (diflucan included) had failed. Also, put away the lansinoh. You can culture thrush in lansinoh. I have no idea why it's the 'gold standard' nipple cream. Try to...
This is not from a perspective of wifely submission, but my husband and I have the same problem. I mess up our finances, ask him to take over for me, and then he fails to do ANYTHING until I take them up again. So no great advice just s. My own feeling is that I need to work on myself first. Figure out why I'm so bad with it when I'm a generally organized and responsible person. I realize that I was trying to avoid admitting it was a problem by asking DH to handle it...
Well, I think I'll break down and get teflex dehydrator sheets. I really need some tortillas in my life! Yesterday was haaard. I had a meeting go til 9pm and hadn't eaten since 4. Trader Joe's was closed so I ended up at Albertsons wandering the isles. I got salad fixings but what I really wanted was frozen pizza. With pepperoni. I had my 3rd salad of the day at 10 and went to bed pretty miserable. What are fast, easy raw dishes that don't resemble salad? I need...

I don't have a camera but I WILL get a pic taken of mine this weekend to post!
Interesting. I try to avoid teflon. Is this the only option for the dehydrator? Both the cookies and the ice cream are delicious - they do use maple syrup which isn't technically raw but is in many raw cookbooks. I figure it's nutritious and tasty, so I don't worry about it. You could sub agave or honey I suppose. 2 cups pecans, soaked for 4-5 hrs 1/2 cup maple syrup 1 cup raw milk (or water or almond milk) 1/4tsp cinnamon pinch sea salt Strain pecans, put...

I rarely have the sprouts going.... Karen YES! I always have that problem with raw recipies. Most of them have so much lead time. So we got an ancient Excalibur dehydrator from freecycle. It's large, loud, and scary. I'm a bit nervous about our power bill! We tried...
