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.
It is also very good with blueberries instead of the rhubarb.
1-½ cups white sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla
2 cups gluten-free flour mix (e.g., B. Hagmans)
1 teaspoon xanthan gum
½ teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 cup milk
2 cups chopped rhubarb
½ cup brown sugar
½ teaspoon cinnamon
Mix margarine and sugar together; beat in egg and vanilla. Mix in dry ingredients followed by milk, then finely chopped rhubarb. Pour into greased pan then sprinkle mixed topping on top. Bake in 9x13 inch pan at 350 degrees F for 35-40 minutes. Half this recipe works well in an 8x8 inch pan.
