    Well thank you Anonymous. Usually things like that are followed by spam so it’s nice to have an honest compliment 🙂

    Poor baby! allergies are Such a pain. I think Chinese and oriental foods have very little dairy in them. My uncle said he had no milk or cheese for the five years he lived in China. I just watched a program on Indian cooking and there was no dairy in there, except for the clarified butter they use in many dished. Otherwise they use coconut milk for sauces and plain vegitable oil to cook with. Most of their dishes are vegetarian. I loved seeing them make the rice pancakes – and the fish curry with coconut made me Drool!
    Getting hungry here. Must be time for lunch!
    My son has asthma and is allergic to a few foods. The twins were dairy allergic for more than a year. And I just this year developed an allergy to strawberries (I never liked them much, so it’s no big loss) But now if I eat one I get a terrible pain in the back of my throat and head. Isn’t that wierd??

    I am the vegan mother of a 16 month old, and he loves beans and lentils. You might want to check out Cathe Olson’s Simply Natural Baby food which has great recipes that are easy to make. As for finding out what is dairy free, PETA has a list of vegan products that would be dairy free. Most margarines in the regular grocery store have some dairy, and bizarre products have whey in them. Label reading can be a real pain, but it does get easier after a while

    Ah! Allergies, the bane of our lives. My little guy has a servere peanut/peanut butter allergy. Have to carry epi-pens everywhere!
    Places like Whole Foods, do you have that where you are?, sell all kinds of organic varieties of food to accomadate all kinds of dietary tastes. Rice Milk and Soy Milk is pretty good..(why do they call it milk without milk in it , I can’t fathom). Some brands taste better than others though.
    Good luck in your quest for variety. I think you’ll find success….these days we are so enlightened. (With food anyway)

    You are not a bad mommy. Look at all the research you’re doing.

    And you ARE special and popular. Why else would I spend entire days attached at the hip to you? *g*

About Me

Angela James

There is nothing worse than writing a bio. And writing one for your blog sidebar? Blech. Maybe you landed here via Google, followed me from Twitter (does that make you a stalker?) or maybe we met at a conference or you clicked a link from a comment I made at a blog you visited. Hopefully whatever I said didn't make you so mad you came looking for a picture to throw darts at (yep, that's me up above, in my favorite cowboy hat) but instead drove you to find out more about the amazingly witty and intelligent person behind the amazingly witty and intelligent comment.

However you found me, who you found is Angela James, executive editor of Carina Press, Harlequin's new digital-first press. I'm passionate about digital publishing, my mission is to drag people to the digital dark side, one reader (and author) at a time. I'm also Brianna's mommy. At my blog you'll get an odd mix of personal and professional posts about parenting, publishing, books, cooking, sewing and life in general. Come back often, comment frequently and go green—buy ebooks!

Please note that this is my personal blog and my opinions are neither that of Harlequin, nor representative of their opinions.


Find Me Here

First, I blog once or twice a week at theCarina Press blog, talking about the job, the authors, the books and other things Carina Press. And, of course, you can always find me on Twitter. Or Facebook, if you prefer (mostly the same content, one feeds the other). I also run the Carina Press Twitter and Facebook accounts. Social media, it's where it's at (well, it's where I'm at, anyway).
