2013 Cooking Desk Calendar Gifts and a Giveaway

Can you believe that New Year’s Eve is exactly a month away? I don’t know about you, but I’m ready to shake off the dust of 2012 and start anew.

I love the fresh start that January and the New Year brings. I love resolutions, new plans and goals, and I love buying new calendars! If you’re like me, you are going to love this new desk calendar. This isn’t just any desk calendar. This 2013 Cookbook Desk Calendar created by my friend Diane of The Whole Gang is the fresh start that we’re all looking for. It has gorgeous color photos of monthly dishes with easy-to follow recipes on the back. And it all sits in a clear CD case specially made to stand-up and display on your desk or countertop.

I know you’ll want one for yourself, but what a great gift to give your friends and family.

A Curious Girl in the Gluten-Free World

I'm a curious girl, wife, teacher, fitness fanatic, gluten-free foodie, high-raw vegan, and Mama Cat living in NYC. I've made the transition from baking and cooking gluten-free to creating raw vegan recipes that are naturally gluten free. My gluten intolerance opened up my diet to a whole new world of nutritious plant-based foods. While I'm not 100% vegan, it's my favorite way to eat, and making and sharing raw foods makes me giddy. Living in the City has its joys and challenges, and I enjoy sharing my experiences with you.
