- 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!

Freecycle.org ROCKS again!
I have been using a little tikes picnic table in the twins' school room, for them to use for puzzles, school work, reading etc. Well I thought it was a great idea until I realized they sit next to each other most of the time, not across from each other, and the bench was bowing under their combined weight! Time to put it outside for summer use. The same week I realized the picnic table wasn't working out someone posted an Ikea Mammut table and chair on freecycle! I jumped on it, and now we have a really nice table with two chairs and two stools. It took a little Mr. Clean erasing and some lysol then pledge, but the table and chair look absolutely brand new now. I bought two yellow stools to use when guests come, otherwise the stools work perfectly for reading near our bookcase. I always say it but I'll say it again - freecycle ROCKS!!!!
