Cook Gluten Free!

I've been gluten-free (and dairy-free) since March 2009. I'm feeling healthier then I have in over a year, but it's taken some time to get used to the idea of not eating gluten. Especially since I love to bake and cook.

When I first found out about my food allergies, I was pretty discouraged. I wasn't aware of gluten-free alternatives that are available to people. I am now. Eating gluten-free has opened up a whole new variety of tastes and flavors. There are many gluten-free flours that you can use: white and brown rice flours, tapioca, quinoa, sorghum, millet, and more!

I want to provide you with gluten-free recipes, recipes that I've tested. Eating gluten-free is hard at first, but it's starting to get easier. Why? You'll find out when you try these recipes.

I can eat chocolate chip cookies again...and lemon pound cake!
