Peanut Desensitization Using Oral Immunotherapy

The first time I heard about peanut desensitization using Oral Immunotherapy (OIT) was through my husband sometime last year. He had been super excited to share about this new treatment that could potentially eliminate our daughter’s life-threatening peanut allergy; except it required her to be exposed to the very thing that could end her life – […]


A Meal Kit Review of HelloFresh

I have been curious about meal delivery services for awhile now. They all promise the same thing – fresh, portioned out food that is delicious, easy, and convenient.

Destination: Hualien, Taiwan
