So Many Blogs, So Little Time

I am addicted to the blogging world.  It all began with that gossip fiend Lainey.

Since starting my own blog, and joining the almighty TWITTER, I have found more and more blogs.  And ya know what?  Blogs totally rock!  I could spend an entire weekend on my temper-pedic mattress with my Nespresso machine, a few bottles of vino, some water, and some baked goods, exploring the blogging universe.

One blog always leads me to another.  It’s a very dangerous activity for the likes of me (Pete thinks I’m an internet geek).  So I’ve decided for my sake, and hopefully yours, to include a page on my blog dedicated to blogs.  It will evolve as my addiction grows and grows and grows.  The traditional ‘blogroll’ just doesn’t cut it for me anymore.

Do you have some favourite blogs?  Besides this one of course 🙂  Please feel free to add a comment and let us know what your fave blogs are (include a link if you can).

Hi Maggie –
My mom told me that she connected with you over a gluten-free inquiry and I checked out your blog as soon as I got to work. I have a friend who is a celiac. Our social network involves a lot of BBQs, dinners and brunch dates. We are always trying to be conscious of what our friend can and cannot eat. I’m excited to read about your recipes and blog!


Maggie April 15, 2010 at 10:30 am

Lari! Great to hear from you & thanks for coming to my blog. Small world isn’t it? That’s great that you support your friend like that. I’m sure she really appreciates it. I’ll connect with you on facebook via your Mom. She Let Them Eat Cake has a facebook page too. Hope life is great!

So happy to see another gluten free blog. Keep up the good work. Welcome to the club!

Thanks so much for commenting Colin. I’m glad your Mom passed it on. It’s so cool of you to think of your friend that way. I’m sure they really appreciate your support.

Oooh you can add me 🙂 My blog is about trying to live and eat “green” and eating for autoimmune health. My daughter has PANDAS and I have an autoimmune disorder not yet specified, so we cook and bake while eliminating lots of things- gluten, refined sugars, pasteurized dairy, anything artificial, MSG, and try to avoid soy and corn. I’m no expert, so it’s just our family’s journey into what works for us and what doesn’t… and all the funny blunders along the way!


Breanna August 15, 2010 at 9:17 pm

Thanks so much for your list, I started my blog about six months ago because I, too, get so caught up in reading blogs that lead to other blogs, I could do it for hours, actually, like you said, for the weekend! So I decided I needed my own 🙂 My blog has allergy-friendly recipes and is about our journey with our older son’s severe eczema, allergies and intolerances, as well as motherhood and life, in general! Check it out if you’d like:

Thanks, Breanna

Have you checked out Offbeat Mama? It’s the sister site of Offbeat Bride (which I was obsessed with prior to the summer for obvious reasons). It’s full of super fabulous photos and even better articles on everything alternative parentings. Check it out!

Funny. I feel the same way about getting lost in the land of Blog. I wish there were more hours in the day. Shirley @ pointed me in your direction for the cookie contest today. Great to have found your site.


Kristin @ Peace, Love and Muesli January 24, 2011 at 7:28 pm

Ha! My blog started because of Lainey too.


Maggie January 24, 2011 at 7:32 pm

One more thing to love about you Kristin! And I just added you to my blogroll – glad you commented as it reminded me to update!


Noreen April 16, 2011 at 12:46 pm

So we have a mutual friend, Heather Warren….I sailed with her years ago…anyways she told me to check you out…and well quite frankly, you are the reason I got started blogging and now have my very own website coming out soon!!! Our daughter is sensitive to SOY and GLUTEN…so we have ALL gone gluten free and soy free since January, and well…its been amazing! I love reading everyone’s Blogs and getting recipe ideas…I am working on my cookbook which has been in the process since my sailing days…but now have a great theme to follow…GLUTEN FREE AND SOY FREE of course! So…for now i have a blog, which has not been updated often enough…but like you said…so much to blog, so little time!!!


Debbie October 4, 2011 at 3:55 pm

Sugar Mags – you have always been so sweet with or without the sugary gluten stuff:-)! I love the blog – you are doing amazing things and all because of your family. Keep up the great work – I am thrilled we have connected and I will be sure to pass this blog on to all my gals on this end! Love you!


Lisa October 21, 2011 at 10:25 pm

I am a blogging addict I swear! I just found this new one. Not a ton on the site so far, but the desserts are excellent! Especially the pumpkin pie! All recipes are gluten and dairy free,which is something I definitely need! Just another blog to look at if you want some quick recipes or ideas.


Maggie October 22, 2011 at 12:28 pm

Thanks Lisa!


Arlinda October 31, 2011 at 3:09 pm

PS Good luck with school.

Thanks so much Arlinda! I’m so glad you found my blog. xo


Edwina April 17, 2012 at 11:05 pm

So glad to have found a blog that is gluten, dairy and egg free. It’s so hard to find recipes that incorporate all those! Thanks…


Maggie April 18, 2012 at 5:02 pm

You’re welcome Edwina! Let me know if you’re looking for anything in particular.

thanks for this great list!!!


Maggie September 14, 2012 at 4:52 pm

Thanks Ana! Can’t wait to check out your blog. I love reading about soy – you can never have enough info on that topic!


Rachael Little January 19, 2013 at 10:40 am

Hi Maggie!

A friend of mine was telling me about your blog! She went to WCI, and mentioned I should check out your site. I have had to go gluten free while nursing my newborn son, as he is intolerant of wheat, dairy and soy. I am very much looking forward to trying out your recipes!



Maggie January 20, 2013 at 12:17 pm

Hi Rachael – Who was it? I’d love to know 🙂 I had to make a lot of changes when I was nursing Callum. How’s your little guy doing now? Let me know if you have any questions!
Best of luck,


Rachael Little February 21, 2013 at 2:22 pm

Hey Maggie,

Talk about a late reply 🙂 Sorry!!

It was Ali Baker. I am friends with her older sister, Adi! Glad to know I’m not the only nursing mom who needed to make diet changes! I was surprised to find out I actually feel better on a gluten free diet too, though! My son is doing much better, and is having less tummy troubles now 🙂 We’ll probably follow the same plan for him when solids are introduced!!

Anyways – nice to meet a local blogger – I’ll stay tuned for more recipes!!



Maggie February 23, 2013 at 6:13 pm

Thanks Rachael – Better late than not at all 🙂
I’m so glad to hear he’s doing better.
Say hi to Ali for me,


Judy June 8, 2013 at 11:32 am

Hey Maggie
Can you recommend a good red wine vinegar for salad dressing that is reasonably priced?
Thank you


Maggie June 8, 2013 at 2:02 pm

Hey Jude – I am really loving Maison Orphee products right now. I can get them at Loblaws too. Check it out here


Elle Kirschenbaum February 3, 2014 at 12:29 pm


I discovered your blog “exploring the blogging universe.” 🙂 I guess we all do it!

I am also a gluten-free baker and blogger as well. Feel free to check be out at:

Great to find you!



Maggie February 3, 2014 at 4:46 pm

Thanks Elle! Your blog looks lovely 🙂
Thanks for checking me out!


Brenda May 6, 2015 at 11:18 am

Hi Maggie,

Just want to let you know that the information and recipes have been even more appreciated since Patrick was diagnosed with Crohn’s. He sees a nutritionist and naturopath along with his GI specialist. He is medication free with the diligent work of keeping his diet “clean”. A very hard thing to do with a 19 year old young man away from home.

Thanks so much…your recipes allow me to bake for my little man Smith as well.
Keep up the great work….it’s much appreciated.


Maggie May 13, 2015 at 10:48 am

Thank you so much for the note! I’m so glad to hear he’s doing well. A clean diet has so much power over our health, I love it!
I hear you made some yummy cookies for Smith 🙂
Hope to see you soon,
