mission: impossible, the cupcake version

cupcakes for dave's birthday

Ana is turning two soon, and we're having a birthday party her with cupcakes. It would be nice if she could eat a cupcake at her birthday party, so I'm trying to find a good cupcake recipe for her that she can eat. Hence the challenge... she has celiac disease, and appears to also be allergic to corn, dairy, and eggs. I can find plenty of vegan cupcake recipes (which would cover the dairy & eggs part) but they use a lot of soy milk, which usually has gluten added to it, and regular flour. And there are plenty of gluten-free cupcake recipes... which use dairy or eggs.

Vegan Cupcakes Take Over the World claims to have a few wheat-free vegan cupcake recipes. I'll probably be ordering it soon and giving it a whirl. Otherwise, it's going to be major kitchen experimentation time.

Verizon EVDO = 5 GB/month, now officially

Well, this certainly took long enough for Verizon to admit to.

Verizon forced to stop calling limited cell data plans "unlimited" - story on boing boing. EVDO is my only internet access, so I always keep in the back of my mind that I should be going to the library to use their wifi when I start doing a lot of downloading or uploading to flickr. I can't believe it took them this long to admit what most EVDO users have known for months.

October 21 NYC Breast Cancer walk in Central Park

I'm joining some coworkers to do the NYC Breast Cancer walk this month. Esther's mom had breast cancer when we were in college, and I've known a few other women who had it. If you'd like to make a donation to my team, here is the donation page, or you can find a walk near you.
