- Gluten Free Mom
- 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!

Homeschool Book SCORE!!
I went to a homeschool bookstore today that is closing it's doors, and almost everything in the store is 50% off. I SCORED!!! I found Saxon 87 and the solutions book for $12, and Saxon Algebra 1 with the solutions, tests manual, and homeschool packet for $30. I got the Prentice Hall Literature book for 7th grade and 9th grade, yay!! I also scored all of the books in the Prentice Hall World Explorer Series - used and in excellent condition, for $3 a book! WOOHOO!!!!! After we saved so much on the next few years' curriculum we decided to "splurge" and bought a new copy of Latina Christiana's student workbook, which rounds out our latin curriculum. We haven't started latin yet, we're going to wait until we are officially in 7th grade. It'll go with the history we plan to study, ancient greece and the roman empire.
