Welcome to our site!
Eating a gluten-free diet can seem overwhelming and alarmingly restrictive to those of us who have grown up in a society that is smitten by traditional recipes for chewy boules of bread, chocolate chip cookies, cakes, muffins…. People diagnosed with Celiac Disease have the added challenge of determining where gluten is “hidden” in prepared foods (food coloring, thickeners, flavoring…. ) My goal with this blog is to demystify gluten free cooking by sharing recipes, expert advice (if you believe Gladwell’s “10,000 Hours” theory I guess I’m an expert!), and some of my favorite products.
Having to live “gluten-free” may seem like a curse, but for many it is a life decision that has benefited them physically, emotionally, and spiritually. Many of us have grown up in situations where wheat and other grains containing the gluten molecule were the norm. This forced us to believe that using these ingredients was the only way to enjoy the things we desired. What you find here may help change your perspective. We’ll provide you with gluten free alternatives, give you recipes that taste better and happen to be gluten free, and offer tips and advice based on over 14 years of experience. Check in every week for new installations that will help solve your gluten-free woes, improve your baking experience, and hopefully inspire you to create GF versions of your favorite recipes and share your new path with family and friends. We welcome your observations, questions, and stories as you make the GF transition.
