Vanilla Scented Orange Banana Smoothie

Posted by A Gluten Free Mom on March 29, 2015 in Recipes |

Have I said how much I love my vitamix?? It has a smoothie setting! So easy my 5 year old could make his own smoothie (that is if I let him use a knife…or I thought ahead to keep pre-pealed oranges in the fridge). This week’s smoothie practically all from this week’s bountiful basket (except for the honey–which was an add on earlier in the year), even the vanilla extract came from a tropical pack’s vanilla bean turned into extract.

Seaside Secrets: A Book Review & Giveaway

Posted by A Gluten Free Mom on March 26, 2015 in Giveaway |

My Two Cents: On a triumphant return to the Cape, Melissa Foster delivers another home run! Tony and Amy have a past that one might think is impossible to overcome. Yet Amy has held out hope for the past bazillion years that Tony will fall in love with her. Throughout the past few novels we’ve watched Amy pine over Tony refusing to even look at other guys. She is finally getting her chance to shine.

Tears go hand and hand for me and Seaside Secrets. Amy’s story had me reaching for the box of tissues time and time again. Get ready for a fabulous love story that will have you wishing there was another to read RIGHT NOW!


The newest addition to the LOVE IN BLOOM series, featuring a group of fun, sexy, and emotional friends who gather each summer at their Cape Cod cottages. They’re funny, flawed, and will have you begging to enter their circle of friends. You met them in READ, WRITE, LOVE, (The Remingtons, Book 5), follow these friends on their search for forever love in the Seaside Summers series.


Tony Black is the hottest surfer on the planet. He travels the world throughout the year and spends his summers on Cape Cod with his friends, at the Seaside cottages in Wellfleet, Massachusetts. He’s got his choice of women, but Amy Maples is the one he wants. Fourteen years ago she was his for an entire summer, until a devastating accident changed everything, and what they had seemed like it had never existed—at least for her.

Amy Maples is as consistent as the day is long. She’s spent summers on Cape Cod forever, she always does the right thing, and she’s spent years trying to reclaim the heart of Tony Black, the only man she’s ever loved. She’s back for a summer of fun with her friends at Seaside, only this year she’s been offered the opportunity of a lifetime thousands of miles away, and she’s decided to try one last time to reconnect with Tony. But having a relationship with Tony means dealing with her past—and dealing with her past may knock her to her knees.

SEASIDE SUMMERS are the newest addition to the LOVE IN BLOOM series
