Someone made the point today that there is a lot of whining going on about gluten free being so hard and not being able to eat anything. Come on people, it isn’t that hard! It is only as hard as you make it. Sorry, but you can’t eat a ten course meal with everyone else and not tell the dining staff about it, but you can find simple ways to avoid gluten.
I continually preach: Keep it simple! Especially, for those of you who are just starting out. If you can stick to basic foods, whether you are at home, or out to eat, then it isn’t so bad.

One thing I miss the most is fried foods. You know- all those breaded and fried appetizers at restaurants… chicken tenders, cheese sticks, jalapenos, mushrooms, the list goes on and on. We aren’t even supposed to eat the french fries since they are fried in the same oil as rest of these amazing foods. I have heard of a few restaurants that will clean out a fryer and replace the oil just for someone with celiac(this is rare), AND I know of one place in St. Louis with a dedicated gluten free fryer: Corner Pub & Grill!
I have figured out a way to get my fix at home. I can now...

Well, I’ve been 100% Gluten Free for 9 months. I thought it was going to much tougher than it has been to eat gluten free 100% of the time. I can’t recall a time when I have been a big inconvenience or not found something to eat. Overall, I am eating much healthier than I used to. I lost some weight at first, but quickly found ways to replace my old favorite foods.
Like I frequently say, I don’t really buy the gluten free “imitation” foods in the stores, and rarely do I splurge and go to gluten free restaurants due to the high cost. So, it may appear that...

As you have probably heard by now, Betty Crocker released gluten free dessert mixes! You can now make your own brownies, cookies, and cakes with mixes from a very respected company.
I have a few of these boxes in my kitchen that I have yet to bake. I’m not much of a baker or dessert eater, so I have yet to attempt these. I’ll post a review once I try them… the chocolate chip cookies are now looking pretty tempting.
Anyone can call General Mills Consumer Services at 1-800-446-1898, then select option #4. Tell them you are interested in trying their new gluten free mixes, answer...

Bread is a useless vehicle, used only to assist moving the essential meat and cheese into your mouth without getting your hands messy.
My aunt makes these great sandwiches that I can no longer eat; brisket, bacon, tomatoe and cheese on a crissont. She had a bunch of leftover brisket and bacon that she gave to me this afternoon. Since I was thinking about those sandwiches all afternoon, I decided to make my own version with the food she gave me and what I had in the fridge. It was so good, I thought I should share.
