  • About Me

    After many years of unexplained medical issues, I was finally diagnosed with celiac disease in 2002.  The first couple of years were a rough road traveled, but I am feeling better than I ever have.  It is important that I share what I have learned over the years with others and to do my part to help raise awareness of celiac disease.

    Now is the perfect time of year to find a tasty, easy-to-make gluten-free pie crust!  I recently tried Inspiration Mixes gluten-free pie crust mix and I have to say that I was pleasantly surprised. 
    This pie crust mix is priced right and each box makes four pie crusts.  The crust only took a few minutes to make, and after a short time in the fridge it was ready to be rolled out.  I just dusted some gluten-free flour on parchment paper and simply rolled out the ball of gluten-free dough and was surprised to see how easily it transferred it into the pie pan.  It held together beautifully and wasn't dry, crumbly or gritty like some of the other brands that I have tried.  The gluten free pie crust held in place and withstood the moist filling of my pumpkin pie. 
    I was a little nervous about serving it because I have not had the best of luck with gluten free pie crusts in the past, but as soon as I cut into the first slice I knew this pie crust was going to be different.  The crust was flaky, and as you may know the first slice can be the most difficult to remove from the pan, but I have to say that it came out beautifully!  My entire family (even the non celiacs) enjoyed the pumpkin pie.  I was a little disappointed that we didn't have any leftovers, but that's better than making a pie that no one wants to eat. 
    I still have enough pie crust mix to make a few more, but this time I am getting requests to make a gluten free apple pie!

    Attune Foods Erewhon Quinoa & Chia Gluten-Free Cereal
    You may have caught my enthusiastic review of Attune Foods Erewhon Buckwheat & Hemp cereal from last year. Well, it's time I inform you that they've done it again: Attune Foods Erewhon Quinoa & Chia gluten-free cereal is a great way to add two superfoods to your diet, and makes a tasty corn flakes alternative.
    Like all their cereals, Attune Foods has done a great job of maximizing health benefits and keeping the ingredients list rich with wholesome ingredients, while still delivering a tasty product that isn't a pain to eat. This cereal is similar to corn flakes, but not quite as flaky: it's a little tougher and chewier, and holds up to milk better. Health reasons aside, I actually prefer it to corn flakes, as it doesn't turn into a mushy mess in 5 minutes!
    Attune Foods Erewhon Quinoa & Chia cereal is great for you, and should make a welcome addition to any gluten-free household's breakfast reserves. You can find it (exclusively) at Whole Foods.

    Surf Sweets Organic Spring Mix Gluten-Free Jelly Beans
    This fun candy associated with the Easter holiday is better than ever now that Surf Sweets has made them organic. 
    These jelly beans are made without corn syrup – which is a huge plus – they are sweetened with organic cane sugar and organic tapioca syrup.  They are also free of artificial colors and flavors.  I'm not sure what makes them taste so good...maybe it's the combination of organic grape juice and organic black carrot juice – who knew there were black carrots? 
    For a sweat treat that's healthier than most, you have to try these. 
    Don't wait as The Easter Bunny is almost here: www.surfsweets.com.

    If you like a good Bloody Mary, Top Shelf Premium Cocktail Mixers' Jalapeno Bloody Mary Mix should be the first thing you reach for. 
    The garlic, jalapenos, and red onion flavors are fresher than any other drink mixes I have tried, and this mix doesn't contain a drop of high fructose corn syrup.
    This Bloody Mary mix is spicy, but not overly spicy—it's easy to adjust the flavor of this delicious cocktail mix by adding your own Worcestershire sauce, horseradish, or other favorite gluten-free cocktail ingredient.
    With or without alcohol, you can't go wrong with Top Shelf Mixes Gluten Free Jalapeno Bloody Mary Mix.
