- 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!

Diesel, the Lizard Slayer
This is my savior today. Diesel is barely one year old, and the few bugs we have found in our house this summer he has brought to our feet, growling to let us know he had found something. I have never had a cat bring me things INSTEAD of eating them! He found the lizard while we were cooking dinner and brought it to us growling LOUDLY like a dog. It was not only amazing to me that he brought it to hubby's feet alive, but so nice that I don't have to worry about a weird lizard in my house anymore!!! I know they eat spiders and bugs, blah blah blah, but I'm just not a reptile person. Big Kid grabbed the lizard and set it free outside, Diesel hadn't hurt it at all! He has moved up on my list and put a smile on my face :)
