Welcome Back to Great Food!

I have been gluten-free for about eight years. For the first 3 months I was a full-time student with a full-time job. I lived on nothing but Snickers bars, hamburger patties and french fries. Who had time to figure out what to eat? It was just before the big push of gluten-free products made their way into the stores. The selection of GF products was slim and as a student I couldn't afford any of them! Please know that I am not promoting my original GF diet! It got me through until I could take the time to figure how to eat healthy AND GF. In fact, hamburger patties are probably one of my least favorite foods after so many years of relying on them. In the past, I would figure out a few things that worked for me and stick with them until I couldn't bear the thought of eating them ever again.

Over the years I have become intolerant of many different foods at different times including: rice, soy, corn, dairy, nuts and probably a few other things I can't even think of!

My quest over the last couple of years has been to perfect baking and cooking gluten and allergen free. No one else in my family is GF so I test my recipes out on them. If they don't like it as wheat-eaters and think it tastes "weird" then it's off the list. I LOVE to eat and cook and think that we should get to eat amazingly great food even with our food intolerances!
