About Me

My photo
I am mom to a 15 year old boy and identical twin 6 year old boys. I am the wife of a wonderful man. I have had celiac disease for 15 years. Those things define me in that order, everything else falls in line! I homeschool because the public school system was just letting my smart child slip through not learning a thing, on the honor roll no less. While I eat a completely gluten free diet I don't keep a gluten free household. No reason to make the kids suffer with me! I am writing a gluten free cookbook (slowly!) because I can't stand all the gluten free recipes out there that use five hundred flours, and I want to eat normal food like non-celiacs do. Just like I used to, I use one all purpose flour that ROCKS, The Gluten Free Pantry's All Purpose Flour. No, I do not get paid to say that ;) Every recipe on my blog can also be made with regular flour, use it just like I use my gf flour!

All I have to say for today is I wish companies would stop advertising how tasty their gluten free foods are if they have simply put shiny packaging on cardboard. Ugh I hate health food. Today is one of those days I wish I could just eat a cupcake, or a twinkie, just to have the familiar yummy taste in my mouth. I know, I can eat most anything others can just a gluten free version, but I honestly have forgotten what fruit loops taste like! I have a pantry FULL of food for my family and I can eat a can of tuna... that's it. Oh, and I have some gf noodles with nothing to put on them to make them taste good. This is one of those frustrating days where I wish I didn't have celiac disease! I long for a good seasoned calzone, a "real" pizza! I shouldn't complain, I eat Zpizza's gluten free pizza once in awhile, but even then it's health food pizza! I want oily, fattening, melt in your mouth real pizza. I guess I should get off my butt and try to figure out how to make it for myself, shouldn't I? I just get so tired of having to invent recipes and make things from scratch just to eat things that taste right! God why is it soooo difficult for food producers to make something that HAS A GOOD TASTE that doesn't contain gluten?

That is my rant for today! Maybe someday my prayers will be answered and good food will be readily available in a gluten free version... until then I bake and cook and complain ;)

  1. My circumstance is definitely a bit different than yours because my son is the GF one but I'm also the one baking and cooking everything from scratch hoping he'll eat SOMETHING I make someday. lol I'm exaggerating - he does eat food I make him but not always he is a toddler after all so that just adds to his pickyness.
