Say Cheez

The Test: Namaste Foods, Say Cheez Gluten & Dairy Free Mac & Cheese In lieu of my elimination diet for the past 5 weeks, I ran to Whole Foods to pick up some rice pasta and ran into a new section of gluten-free dairy-free mac & cheese options. I took a gamble as odd as it sounded. I mean, pretend "cheese" in mac & cheese just sounds wrong. The result: Success. Granted I haven't had real cheese or pasta with wheat in awhile, the fake stuff did the trick.

New Year, New Look.

You've probably noticed some changes around here. I've moved to San Francisco this year. After nearly 8 years of NicoleLaFave.com's ongoing digital love to me, I have also changed my studio name to Design Womb. New look, new logo and just in time for the new year. I am looking forward to growth and expanding in my new, often freezing cold studio/home in San Francisco. Seriously. I'm surprised my fingers are not frosted at times. Yeah, Yeah. I know those of you reading this from the Midwest are laughing at me, but it's not a joke when they say your body acclimates to the climate you live in, and I was in L.A. for 5 years. Cut my some slack. Watch this space for my blog "re-launch" for 2011. I've barely gotten around to this whole name swap, so I need a little more time to pump up the volume in my blog space. I hope it will become a lot more interesting and entertaining, or at least a place to come for some resources and fun stories. A girl can dream.
