      Of all the categories of gluten-free baking, it might come as a surprise to you that the one that seems to cause the most problems is not bread, but cookies! (Bread is a very close second, though!) Particularly if the cookies must be both gluten-free and dairy-free … and (gasp) … what if they

    Shopping for safe gluten free products should have gotten easier after the FDA’s gluten free food labeling rule became final in 2014. As a celiac, I believe it has actually become harder in many ways. When I returned from speaking at The Food Allergy Blogger’s Conference in Denver, Colorado, I sat down to write this post.

    It’s that time of year again: Girl Scout Cookie season! But what if you’re wanting/needing a gluten free Girl Scout Cookie? Some folks see all this cookie commotion as a sad time of year for those of us eating gluten free, as The Girl Scouts of the USA haven’t historically produced any gluten-free varieties. After

    If you are not feeling as happy, healthy and as energetic as you would like — even on a gluten free diet — embrace your new year new gluten free lifestyle! No matter how long you’ve been living gluten free, you can probably do better. Everyone gets in a rut sometimes; the new year is

    In spite of all the advances in gluten free products, eating out is the one thing that everyone living gluten free agrees is still stressful, risky and often difficult to navigate. That’s why I was so excited about certified gluten free Green Chef Meal Kits — a meal kit that is itself certified gluten free,

    Finding gluten free gifts for foodie friends shouldn’t be any harder than for anyone else, and it’s that time of year again, so I’m here to help! I don’t know about you, but the holidays have really snuck up on me this year – I’m woefully behind on my shopping already, and I know I’ll

    We could all use a good gluten free holiday breakfast recipe round up, don’t you think? I am uncharacteristically thinking ahead this year. Probably because I’ll have a house full of family on Christmas morning, but I like to think maybe I’m turning over a less procrastinator-like leaf. Probably not, though. I’m trying to decide

    It’s my favorite time of the year: Gluten Free Cookie Swap time! I can’t believe it’s the seventh year we’ve hosted this community event, and now, hundreds of gluten free cookie recipes and thousands of dollars of prizes later, it’s now the 7th Annual Gluten Free Cookie Swap! This year’s prizes are amazing! I’ve invited

    If you’ve followed me for awhile, you know I love to bake. I’m actually considered an expert at gluten free baking (it took me long enough, experimenting for years to get it right!) BUT … I do NOT consider myself to be an expert cook. Breads and the sweet stuff just come naturally to me.

      Is There Gluten In Cheerios?! You may have heard about the infamous General Mills Cheerios recall of some lots of Yellow Box and Honey Nut Cheerios labeled as GLUTEN FREE due to gluten contamination, after reports of consumer illness. For details on the recall itself, what caused it and which boxes were affected, read Cheerios Recall Facts

    Every September 13 we celebrate Celiac Disease Awareness Day! And Happy Birthday, Dr. Gee! Wait, you don’t know Dr. Gee? And you’re not sure you fully understand what celiac disease is? Maybe a little unsure about what that gluten stuff is, too? Not to worry. You’re not alone, which might be one reason why Congress

    This is Back-to-School Week in our house, or “that week,” as my kids have been calling it, since the “S”-word has been taboo lately (and I don’t mean Summer!). Aside from getting all my mom ducks in a row with the requisite clothes and “S”-supply shopping, planning for interesting school lunches and gluten-free breakfasts I
