More and more, we hear people talking about their attempts to live gluten-free, omitting many or all goods containing gluten (a protein composite found in foods processed from wheat and related grain species, including barley and rye) from their diets. Often it's because of wheat allergies and celiac disease. Here are a couple of excellent articles sent in by Evelyn Asher. They answer a lot of questions about living with and without gluten. Click here and here. Thanks, Ev!
I've discovered that often those who would most benefit from resale shopping don't know about us. They spend their meager clothing budget at cut-rate discount stores where the clothing is poorly made and wears out in no time. The same money goes MUCH further here at N2N and the items are well-made name brands and mall brands that are far more durable and (IMHO) cuter, too.
We'll be glad to convert some of your store credit to a gift certificate or sell you a credit to use as part of your Christmas giving. You'll know the recipient will be able to find great fashions and learn about the many benefits of resale shopping at the same time.
Now, that's the gift that keeps on giving!

Brown Sugar and Spice Glazed Cream Cheese
This is one of my favorite last-minute entertaining recipes. It's a repeat from last year in case you missed it:
I sampled this at Publix and was absolutely blown away! They served it sans nuts on graham cracker squares. I plan to serve mine on the new brown sugar cinnamon RItz crackers. It would also be good on savory crackers.
- 1 (8-ounce) bar cream cheese
- 1 (11-ounce) jar Boar’s Head Sugar & Spice Ham Glaze
- ½ cup chopped walnuts or pecans
- Place the cream cheese on a small serving platter with crackers and let sit for 5 to 10 minutes.
- Meanwhile, pour the glaze over the top of the cream cheese until it’s covered and the glaze drips over the edges.
- Sprinkle the chopped nuts over the glaze. Serve with crackers of your choice.
Let's work to get the word out: friends don't let friends shop retail!
