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 Smoothies

Lately I have been into making my own smoothies at home. Most are tasty, but I have had a disaster once or twice. Most recently I bought a maradol papaya - they are huge! They aren't sweet or gooey like the payapa's I'm used to, they're firm and not sweet at all. I grabbed a mango to go with it, and blended the papaya, mango, and some ice. It was ... savory I guess? Not quite what I expected, so I added some honey. Now THAT was a money shot - they were just awesome!! I usually put fruit with vanilla frozen yogurt into the blender and so it's like a fruity milkshake - this was something new for me. Yum!
