Happy Thanksgiving!

I’m guessing most people are busy cooking up some things for tomorrow, but I wanted to share a few last-minute ideas with you all, and thank everyone for following along with my little blogging journey.  As a small token of that gratitude, I am doing a giveaway of a couple of cookbooks that are designed for people who are gluten-averse, like myself–see the details at the end of the post.  But first, if you are still looking for whole-food, grain-free recipe idea, here are some links to help you out:

    Thanks, Angela! My favorite thing to bake is apple pie … which can definitely be made allergen-friendly! :)

    The onion tart is going to save me this year from the stuffing! Thank you!

    I use to love to bake cookies. But since September my diet is restricted from eating gluten. I’ve tried the store bought tubes of cookies and did not have good results. I am looking forward to gluten-free becoming the norm so there will be better choices out there. I sure could use the cookbooks. :) An early Merry Christmas to you Angela!

    My mom has been diagnosed with celiac disease this year and we have been trying to learn this new lifestyle. She also has pancreatitis and has to have a low fat diet because of this. She also has a muscle disease called myasthenia gravis that affects her muscles and nervous system and her immune system. We try to find fun and interesting ways to cook so that food is still an enjoyable part of life. We have come up with some pretty good wheat free and fat free easy to prepare foods and we would like to expand upon what we know. Thank you:)

      That’s so great that you are finding ways to keep her diet interesting! Kudos to you.

    I’ve only been GF 4 months. Before going GF, I had a small side business doing cakes. It’s my desire to be able to bake GF options that are just as tasty!

    My old favorite is Red Velvet Cake; however my dh is diabetic so I’m experimenting with sugar-free, grain-free baking. Thanks

      I found it so much easier to lose weight–it definitely made a big difference.

    Being diagnosed with Celiac about a year ago, has obviously been quite an adjustment for the avid baker. I’m loving your site and following you on Pinterest!

    I really enjoy the paleo conversion recipes. My husband just found out he has ulceric colitis after suffering for two years. I plan on converting all the foods he loves to make him feel better.
