Alisa presents Perfect Coconut Millet posted at One Frugal Foodie. Ooh! A recipe! Yay! Having a food-allergic child has made me more cognizant of how food is prepared and I know I've been trying to cook more healthy food with whole ingredients. Always good to get easy recipes, because I am very cooking-challenged.

Rational Jenn presents Considering Homeschooling Your Child With Food Allergies? Yes, Please Do! posted at Rational Jenn, saying, "A humorous look at some online comments left at a newspaper article concerning a debate about how to make a school environment safe for a child with nut allergies. I'm sure many of us have experienced the sadness, revulsion, and dare I say--amusement--at having read some comments just like these. I try to take a lighthearted approach to this because what these kinds of comments really tell me is that there is so much more education needed about food allergies and cross-contamination. (And I know that not everyone desires or is able to homeschool their kids--the title is meant to convey the yikes! factor that may make some people decide against schools.)"
