I enjoy your newsletter and recipes. It would be helpful for me if you would include pan sizes to use and also approximately how many servings each makes.

These brownies were awesome! The batter is very sticky, but once they bake they are perfect! The only thing I would recommend is a little less sugar, but I am just one to like things on the less-sweet side. Awesome recipe! Thanks!

I followed the recipe exactly and it was dripping butter! The chocolate to butter ratio seems absurd, 4 oz. of chocolate to 12 oz. of butter? It seems like I did something wrong, and I checked the recipe 5 times.

I agree with the two bad reviews of this recipe. These brownies do not ever get done. The inside is still not done even after scorching he edges and top. It was a total waste of my groceries and I wish I had read the reviews before making them.

No, I didn't get a endoscopy or even a blood test. I got digestive as well as other problems though on a number of occasions after being gluten free and accidentally eating something with gluten. My symptoms were severe and dramatic so it was obvious to me that I had celaic disease. I wou...

Thankyou for your advice i am getting so confused as some people are saying you dont need the biopsy and others are saying you do need it as it comes with other tests connected to thyroid, iron etc? just want to start being gluten free asap! did you go for the endoscopy?

Hello One drawback is that there are no guarantees. You may go through the testing process and not get the answer you want or need. I did go through testing after having been gluten free and was stunned when I was told it was negative. By that point I'd gone through the challenge and seen...

For me personally a medium result, in that situation, would be enough to convince me that I had celiac disease. Probably the standard of care is to also get a biopsy. Going gluten free is difficult so some people want to do all the tests they can so they can make the best choice. Generally more...

Hi all i hope you can help me i have just had blood tests for celiac and they both come back as a positive result the 1st test was a low reading but the 2nd test was a medium result, i am now waiting a 4 week wait for a endoscopy/biopsy. Not trying to get out of the endoscopy as i have had this p...
