Nearly Wordless.. and Nearly Wednesday

You see why I’ve been offline, right?
This precious munchkin has my attention.
She’s finally over jet lag – HOORAY!

I plan to be back blogging recipes in the next week or so. Zoe has already been munching on some oatcakes that have a bit of cinnamon in them for her teething and breakfast. (Somehow I didn’t think just sucking on the outside of empty plastic Easter eggs was going to fulfill her nutritional needs.)

I have no idea what recipe will strike my fancy – but I have a few ideas floating through my head. I think this weekend I will whip up a loaf of Pepita Bread before My Love goes back to work.

Ah…. family life is grand!
I hope you are all well and forgive me for not being able to follow up with reading all of your blog posts. You guys are BUSY – and I’m finding myself without the time to keep up!

Much love – and as always, Happy GF Eating.


  1. She is SO cute !
    Again, congrats, and enjoy your family-life =)

  2. She is beautiful Kate! Enjoy!!

  3. oh my she is gorgeous! I have been checking your blog all the time looking for more news and photos of your precious gift!
    I made your pepita bread a few months ago and it was amazing…we all loved fact I think it was gone in a day and a half!

  4. She’s beautiful!! You can just “hear” the love and excitement in your writing.

  5. Oh my…the eyes…she is gorgeous!!!! Many blessings to you & hubby for your new bundle of joy!

  6. Zoe is a very beautiful child. Can you tell us how old Zoe is? I am so happy for you and your husband; that the waiting is finally over.
    I am looking forward to your recipes. Since my daughter’s diagnosis we are a year into the GF cooking. If you can advise we beginners, how to make a cake and not have it fall? They look so beautiful when warm, but then you come back and have a “sink-hole”
    Congratulations on becoming a MOM!!!

  7. Aunt Ginger and I have been waiting for a pic! She is absolutely adorable.

  8. She’s beautiful. Now that I have a kid, I love looking at the similar expressions in similarly-aged kids. Zoe’s expression is priceless: inquisitive and intelligent.

  9. Kate, she is just beautiful, she looks older than the last picture. lol How is that possible? Congrats to you and your husband.

    Dear Kate,

    I stumbled upon your wonderful blog today while looking for encouragement for a friend who just learned that she has to cut gluten from her diet, and stayed to read the wonderful story of Zoe’s arrival, then of course I had to go back and read the whole story from the beginning…! I just wanted to tell you how happy I am for all of you. Your warmth and authenticity, your enthusiasm and your joy in life, all shine through your posts. All the best to the new mom and dad, and baby Zoe!

    Thanks for brightening my week, (and for the super recipes too!).

  28. She is beautiful, Kate! Congratulations!!


  1. […] food. Her blog posts are a bit sparse as of this writing because she and her husband just adopted a daughter! They are over the moon with happiness, but probably more than a little sleep-deprived these days. […]
