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!

4th of July party foods!

Yes, I'm hosting a "happy birthday America" party! I decided to go with gluten free and full o' gluten goodies, since most of our guests are not gluten free. This year I'm making pulled pork bbq (pork roast in the crockpot all day with water, then pull apart and slather with bbq sauce), red white and blue cake balls (using gf cake mix),  stained glass jello, cupcakes of course (again, gf cake mix), a bacon explosion, and red white and blue rice krispies (using gf krispies of course!). I can't wait!!! We always ask guests to bring something "fun" to add to the table, so we always end up with more food than people :) HAPPY 4TH Y'ALL!!!
