1983 I was diagnosed with celiac disease. Very little was known about this disease. Our son also has celiac disease and several family members also are celiac. I wrote several cookbooks and the last cookbook was a culmination of the Favourites! "You are about to embark on a journey of an exciting new way of eating! If you focus on past foods, you will miss the greatest opportunity of introducing new grains to your cooking and baking. We all have favourite traditions of the past; why not get started on making new traditions for you and your family and friends! Many individuals have not experienced the good ness of the flavours of amaranth, quinoa, buckwheat, sorghum or chickpea. How can you say I don't like that kind of food, when you have never tasted them? I challenge each person living with celiac disease to take courage; take that first step in committing to a gluten-free lifestyle. Believe in yourself, you can succeed!"
