Gluten-Free

IT’S PERSONAL

The month of May is National Celiac Awareness month. And while I could rattle off the numbers of people who have Celiac or some form of wheat intolerance or allergy, I’m going to share some of our family’s story instead. Why? For me, it’s personal; it hits deeply and closely […]

GLUTEN-FREE FRESH RHUBARB PIE

A few weeks ago our oven bit the dust and not that there’s ever a ‘good’ time to replace a major appliance, but this was particularly painful as we’ve planned to install a much needed fence. I polled Facebook friends to get recommendations on brands they loved and/or didn’t love […]

Kinda […]

3-BEAN SLOW COOKER CHILI

And here we are, Wednesday, the first Wednesday of November 2013 in fact.
