    Finally! I was a Brownie leader for twelve girls, through all four of my daughters' Brownie stages. We sold hundreds of boxes of cookies each year. But when my youngest was diagnosed with celiac disease we stopped selling and buying and made donations instead. I didn't want to have a houseful of cookies that she couldn't enjoy. And now that she's a freshman in high school, Girl Scouts has done it! Hooray! Thank you for making a cookie that's healthier than ever and safe for celiacs and others!

    A number of churches in the US and the UK have already taken measures to accommodate gluten-free members with gluten-free and low-gluten offerings.
    And while there is still a bit of wrangling in the Catholic church in the US about the acceptable gluten-content of communion wafers, it looks like more traditional Catholic and Anglican churches in Australia are now joining ranks in offering a gluten-free...
