In 1994 I was diagnosed with celiac disease, which led me to create Celiac.com in 1995. I created this site for a single purpose: To help as many people as possible with celiac disease get diagnosed so they can begin to live happy, healthy gluten-free lives. Celiac.com was the first site on the Internet dedicated solely to celiac disease, and since then it has become an invaluable resource to people worldwide who seek information about celiac disease and the gluten-free diet.
In 1998 I created The Gluten-Free Mall, Your Special Diet Superstore! which was also another Internet first—it was the first gluten-free food site to offer a shopping cart-style interface, and the ability for people to order gluten-free products manufactured by many different companies at a single Web site.
I am also co-author of the book Cereal Killers, and founder and publisher of Journal of Gluten Sensitivity.

½ teaspoon salt
½ cup liquid egg substitute, or 2 eggs, or 3 large egg whites

Let rest in refrigerator for at least 20 min. heat 9 skillet or frying pan over high heat, brushing the pan lightly with oil. Be sure it is hot enough for water to dance on before starting to cook the tortillas. Spoon in about 4 tablespoons of batter or enough to just cover the bottom of the skillet. Cook until the bottom of the tortilla is golden brown and the edges curl up and the top seems dry. Turn and barely cook the other side. Slip onto wax paper. repeat. Store separated by wax paper in a plastic bag in the refrigerator or freezer until ready for use. reheat in microwave before filling. Makes about 8.
