Hey Everybody! Happy Last Day of the Year!
I wanted to share 10 absolutely-true facts that I learned this year – they’re the kind of info-bombs you can drop at parties and then say: “maybe you should read a little more” when someone doubts you.
Also, I wanted to thank you all for spending part of 2013 with us, and thank so many of you for supporting our Kickstarter to expand G-Free Foodie! There are just a few days left to join if you haven’t already, and the prizes are pretty awesome, if I do say so myself!
Here We Go:

Food chemist William A. Mitchel helped develop Tang, Cool Whip & Pop Rocks. (Also, my friend Fun Amy’s Dad formulated the Nacho Cheese Sauce for Taco Bell. Not kidding)
