Schär Gluten-Free Products – Will Americans Like Them?

Gluten-Free Penne Pasta Dish The short answer is: YES! What the heck is Schär, you might ask? Well, it is actually a company that has been around since 1922. They started out making baby food, and in 1982, switched to making gluten-free products. They have spent the last, almost 30 years, perfecting their products based […]

Gluten-Free Bisquick

I don’t understand what all of this fuss is about. Sorry, but I just don’t get it. Well, maybe I do, but… Here’s the thing. There have been great gluten-free pancake mixes available for a while, now. When I had to go gluten-free about four years ago, the first thing we looked for was a […]

My Fabulous Gluten-Free Birthday, Part Two

So, here is part two of our getaway. I’ll just jump right in. After getting all of the fabulous opinions, we headed off on our journey. We made an appointment with Vincent Arroyo Winery for 12:30pm, but on the way, we got stuck behind a painting truck. The kind that paints the stripes on the […]

Attending a Gluten-Free Baking Class

While blogging and getting to know the gluten free community, I have discovered something about myself. I’m not the greatest baker in the world. Give me time, and I’ll get it, hopefully. But, if it’s not super simple (or even if it is) it takes me a few tries. If you read my attempt at gluten/dairy free puffed pastry, you will understand what I am talking about.

So, that is why I have been looking for a gluten free baking/cooking class to take.

Gluten Free Chocolate Cake Rules! (In My Opinion)

I love chocolate cake! There. I said it. Or, wrote it. Typed it? Anyway, it’s out there. Of course, just about anyone who knows me, knows this about me. So, while most people lament the loss of bread when they have to go on gluten free diet, not me. I was going to miss chocolate cake. Other sweets are ok, but chocolate cake is my favorite. I don’t even eat it that often. But the thought of never having it again was just so sad.

Celiac Disease Foundation Conference Trip – Part Three (Finally!)

I’m not even sure if I can trust my memory of what happened at the conference anymore, since it has been so long now. I want to start off by apologizing. I write a series of posts and lag behind on getting the finale up in a timely manner. I guess it’s a good thing I’m not a writer for “Lost.” I don’t think I have millions of people waiting with bated breath for this post, but I do want to be fair for those readers that I do have. So, my apologies. A lot of life stuff has happened to me since the last post. I promise if I ever have a series of posts again, I will have them all written ahead of time, so I can get them up quicker. Thank you for your patience.

So, away we go!

Celiac Disease Foundation Conference Trip – Part Two

Last time, on Celiac Disease Foundation Conference Trip, we left our heroin as she was about to have a seat and listen to some amazing information from doctors and dietitians. Will she listen? Will she conk out due to lack of sleep? Will she eat all of the cupcakes on the platter in the middle of the table? Is there a cure on the horizon? Let’s see…

Celiac Disease Foundation Conference Trip – Part One

Road Trip! While that exclamation is, usually, supposed to elicit whoops and hollers of excitement from people, if the road trip consists of being by yourself, traveling down I-5 to Los Angeles for six and a half hours in awful weekend traffic, uh… not so much. But, but, but… it was so worth it. The […]

Going to the Celiac Disease Foundation Conference

Well, this is going to be a short post. I am just getting on here to say that I am going to the Celiac Disease Foundation conference on Saturday, May 15th. I have to leave tomorrow morning to drive down, so this will be the last post for a while. But I will be back on here early next week to tell you all about it.

Adopt a Gluten-Free Blogger “Cream” Puff Attempt

I’m pretty good at cooking, too. I have my basic dishes that I make a lot, but they rock. And I am working on branching out to new things. Baking is another matter. I really like it, but I bake cookies. That’s about it. So why I chose a gluten-free, dairy-free cream-filled puffed pastry as my recipe for ‘Adopt a Gluten-Free Blogger’ is beyond me. What was I thinking?
