My life has been turned upside down in the last three weeks with a diagnoses of breast cancer at the age of 32. I write this with overwhelming gratitude to those that turned my life back from upside down. The community of support has been overwhelming – from family to friends to co-workers – I am in awe of their kindness. I will post more as time goes on about our process and path through this breast cancer journey on another blog titled “The Boobie Bunch” – there will be a link in the menu bar of Cornered Tomato.
This specific post gives a shout out to my friend Sara as this is a recipe from her kitchen. The muffins are something she made us that we devoured. People are volunteering to bring food for my upcoming surgery and given that I don’t eat gluten, dairy, soy or sugar…that leaves most people wondering, what food can I make her? Well ice cubes are always good…:) Kidding, just kidding! I am filling up my recipe link here on Cornered Tomato with recipes that we have invented or tried from others that we love. This allows anyone to come and pull a recipe that we will be able to eat. Once again, I can’t thank my family, friends and community enough for the joy you have brought in this difficult time as well as our strength and humor from our Father.
