I Tried the Most Popular Non-Toxic Diapers (So You Don’t Have To)
A Clean Bake
by Nora (A Clean Bake)
8M ago
By popular demand (on Instagram), I tested 5 of the most popular non-toxic diapers on my baby to find out which one performs best. Here are the real life results! I’ve posted some out-there stuff on this site before but – I’ll admit – this one takes the cake.  The genesis of this whole thing was definitely a “Me Problem”, as they say. I have been using Huggies for my younger son since shortly after he was born but, with every recent box, I have been more and more skeptical of them. Each subsequent size felt flimsier, they leaked and blew out constantly, and I was paying a premium for the ..read more

The Best Gluten Free and Dairy Free Snacks
A Clean Bake
by Nora (A Clean Bake)
9M ago
Dairy Free Gluten Free Paleo Vegan So, I had a baby. And for all the warnings I got about adjusting from one kid to two, the development I was least prepared for was colic and reflux. But here we are, 8 months later, with a baby who is finally more comfortable – but only because I have eliminated dairy and soy from my diet (he’s also on medication).  While elimination diets are nothing new to me, dairy is the one common allergen I don’t have a lot of experience working around. I cut it out very briefly, around the time I started A Clean Bake, but have been happily cohabitating with che ..read more

Working from Home With Kids: My Best Tips from Years of Practice
A Clean Bake
by Nora (A Clean Bake)

When the pandemic started and my (pre-pandemic) article about what you need to know about working remotely got a second life, the number one response I got was: but how do you do it with kids around? Prior to this brave new world we are living in, my answer was: I don’t. You see, although I’ve worked 100% remotely for the last 4 years, and for the better part of the 3 1/2 years before that, I had childcare 99% of the time until 2020. My 3-year-old son was in excellent hands with caregivers who loved and educated him while I was able to focus and work in a quiet, serene house. It was ..read more

My Favorite Picky Eating Hack
A Clean Bake

As I’m slowly making my way back to blogging, I’ve been trying to get my (literal) house in order before I am ready to commit to posting regularly here again. One of the issues that I want to make sure I have the creative energy for at home is getting back to addressing picky eating with my 5-year-old son.  If you’ve followed me for awhile, especially on Instagram, you already know that I’ve been working hard for years to address my son’s picky eating and help him expand his palette and culinary horizons. He was never a voracious eater but, like many kids, he went from trying most of wha ..read more

An Update

1y ago
After a prolonged silence here, this probably won’t come as a surprise, but I am taking a break from blogging and social media for the foreseeable future. It’s not you, it’s me (really). I love this community so much, and am so proud of all the cooking and baking we’ve done together. But the truth is that I’m just mentally and physically drained, and have been for awhile. Nearly 365 days without time to rest, recharge, see friends in person, eat at a restaurant, sit at a coffee shop, browse a store, travel, or do most of the things that replenish me has completely robbed me of my creativity a ..read more
