- 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!

Ok, I'm going to promote Udi's Bread for a minute!
I have been making bread from The Gluten Free Pantry's sandwich bread mix for a few years now. I hate making bread, I have to have the time to mix it, leave it someplace warm to rise where the cats and kids won't mess with it... then I have to remember to get it before it rises too much, and have the time to sit and wait for it to come out of the oven. Some days that is just asking too much, and I end up making it four or five times a year. Seriously, that's the only time I eat bread and half the time when I do make it by day three it's gone bad anyway!
Well, over the weekend I figured I would try out Udi's gluten free sandwich bread since I love their bagels. Holy cow am I impressed! It tastes similar enough to what I remember "normal" bread tasting like, and it makes an awesome sandwich! I used it to test out my Kraft Ultimate Sandwich ingredients, and it was really yummy! The only issue I have with it is the actual slices of bread are the size of my palm, and I don't have large hands. Is this a message that we should be eating less bread? Am I on a diet without choice? Udi's, if you are listening, thank you for the gluten free products that taste good and PLEASE make the loaves of bread a bit larger!!!!
