It’s probably the most often heard phrase when you tell someone you’re gluten-free.
Friend (horrified look on their face): “Wait…so…you can’t eat bread!?”
You (patient, yet strained): “I can’t eat anything with gluten in it, so all regular bread, pasta, pizza, and baked goods.”
Friend: …silence…more horror….
Then you rush into the litany of what you can eat. Quinoa! Rice! Corn! Which to most does not seem as exciting or delicious as an honest to-goodness piece of sourdough toast or slice of chocolate cake. But you know what? It absolutely can be.
When I was diagnosed with celiac disease in 2006 I was determined not to live the rest of my life only remembering how amazing that perfect peanut butter cookie tasted. So I started reading gluten-free blogs, researching alternative baking options, and most of all, getting myself covered in gluten-free flour while experimenting in my kitchen. As a result, I have a pretty firm cache of recipes tucked under my belt, and a lot of positive feedback from fellow celiacs who have sampled my gluten-free delectables.
So, welcome to my gluten-free blog! I will be posting recipes, NYC based gluten-free events, relevant blogs, websites and media.
