Our family is growing in many ways... Growing in numbers, knowledge, parenting skills, growing in love, in our faith, growing our culinary skills (if you can call it that), growing without gluten (some of us), growing green...........


I'm certainly no expert (extremely far from it, in fact), but I do personally know more than a few folks navigating this whole gluten-free thing. As someone who is somewhat new to it but not too new...and as someone who tends to jump into things with both feet, not afraid to try it all and share about it...hopefully I can offer some good information to those who are also new to gluten-free living. Or to those who have been gluten-free for a while but haven't really learned how to enjoy it. 

There are many gluten-free goods out there that just don't taste good. I'm sure we can all admit that. And some things are pretty expensive, whether they taste good or not. But it doesn't have to be like that! You CAN eat well. And it doesn't have to cost an arm and a leg. 

So, as I learn more, I hope to share some of that with anyone interested. I'll post links to recipes, products, websites, etc that I have enjoyed or that have helped me on my gluten-free path. I hope they help you, too. 

Along with that...for those that are already familiar and know more than I do (which is not likely to be difficult), please share your tips, favorites, etc, so that I can include them to help others. We're all in this together! And "we" is a growing group, so there are lots of folks out there that could use good info!

Favorite sites for recipes!
Gluten-Free Goddess This is my current go-to for recipes. Seriously try her stuff! You will not be disappointed. You *might* be disappointed to realize you've been eating terrible mixes when you could have been eating delicious gluten-free foods, though...

A few of our favorites:
She also has some great tips for those going into the gluten-free realm. She is a wealth of information. Check her out.
And if you need another reason to try her recipes, check out her VISUAL recipe list. Oh my... You will want to jump in and start cooking!


Favorite Mixes
There are some good ones out there. There are some great ones out there. Here are ones we have tried and either really liked or loved. We try to stock up if there is a sale because, yeah, they're not cheap.

King Arthur Flour - Their mixes are wonderful! Muffins, cookies, pancakes (this is the only pancake mix we've tried so far that was not only edible but blew us away at how delicious they were!), chocolate cake. You can find these at Whole Foods, KA website, amazon... We like to stock up when Whole Foods has them on sale.
