Not food-related, but just because I love Tina Fey.
“Dear Internet” by Tina Fey

“In my opinion Tina Fey completely ruined SNL. The only reason she’s celebrated is because she’s a woman and an outspoken liberal. She has not a single funny bone in her body.”
Huzzah for the Truth Teller! Women in this country have been over-celebrated for too long. Just last night there was a story on my local news about a “missing girl,” and they must have dedicated seven or eight minutes to “where she was last seen” and “how she might have been abducted by a close family friend,” and I thought, “What is this, the News for Chicks?” Then there was some story about Hillary Clinton flying to some country because she’s secretary of state. Why do we keep talking about these dumdums? We are a society that constantly celebrates no one but women and it must stop! I want to hear what the men of the world have been up to. What fun new guns have they invented? What are they raping these days? What’s Michael Bay’s next film going to be?
When I first set out to ruin SNL, I didn’t think anyone would notice, but I persevered because—like you trying to do a nine-piece jigsaw puzzle—it was a labor of love.
I’m not one to toot my own horn, but I feel safe with you, jerkstore, so I’ll say it. Everything you ever hated on SNL was by me, and anything you ever liked was by someone else who did it against my will.
P.S. You know who does have a funny bone in her body? Your mom every night for a dollar.”
Despite my obsessive cleaning and thorough segregation of counter space/equipment*, I do worry about the gluten-y items that occasionally make their way into the kitchen. So when a potential customer with celiac told me I could buy a kit and run my product through an at-home ELISA test, I was all over it.
My first subject: the Choc’wiches. Both the creme and the cookie. The results?
Negative for gluten! Woot!
The health and safety of my gluten-sensitive customers has always been my top priority. So I bought a box of kits, and now I will be testing Renby’s products on a regular basis :)
Btw… if you have a gluten-sensitivity and find you are getting glutened more often than expected, it may be a good idea to get yourself an at-home kit too and get to the root of the problem. I used an EZ Gluten testing kit, which I found super easy to use and is made to detect gluten levels >10ppm** (current FDA recommendation for calling something “gluten-free” is <20ppm so the test is pretty sensitive).
