For someone with food sensitivities to legumes and dairy, this is what I get for following the wishes of my taste buds and disobeying the needs of my gut. Living with food sensitivities can be a real bummer sometimes. Which is why I was extremely delighted when I tried baba ghanoush a couple days ago.

My husband Steve and I spent a week in Maui celebrating our baby-moon. For the first few days we were in Lahaina, a quaint town bustling with culture and art.
