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.
After a lot of trial and error I developed the following Apple Crisp recipe.
large granny smith apples
1 cup gluten-free flour
½ cup brown sugar
¼ cup white sugar
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1/3 cup chopped pecans
½ teaspoon nutmeg (I use whole nutmeg and grind it)
1 stick butter, melted
Mix together dry ingredients and add melted butter; mix well.
Peel and slice apples and put in a 9 x 9 buttered pan. Spread flour mixture evenly over apples and bake at 350 for 45 minutes. Increase heat to 375 and bake until bubbly.
