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!

Gluten Free Restaurants - Reality or Myth?

I got all excited after seeing an ad for Yeah! Burger in Atlanta, because the ad said "gluten free restaurant". And then I went to their website, which isn't a website at all... it's an electronic business card, with their address and phone number on it. I downloaded one of the location's menus and it's not a gluten free restaurant. They have gluten free options, which means to me that it's not an option at all. As I have learned even PF Chang's can have an errant crumb find it's way into my food, making me sick for hours. Let me just say it's a special sort of sick, that only gluten causes. I know when it happens what it is. I guess I should stop getting excited, thinking someday there will be a dedicated gluten free anything... there just aren't enough of us to make it a lucrative business I guess :(
