So many fun things going on this month! I will be launching a fun giveaway later this week or early next week – just finalizing some last minute details.
The National Foundation for Celiac Awareness has a great celebration planned! The theme this year is “Keep It Simple and Safe”. They have rounded up 16 bloggers to share about every stage of the gluten-free journey! Should be an awesome series to follow, so make sure to keep checking back each day for new posts!

To impart my cookie-baking secrets, and in response to the many, many requests I get, I’ve created a new cookie e-book.
Featuring stunning color photography, this 18 page e-cookbook features 11 cookie recipes your friends and family will love, including:
- Chocolate Chip
- Graham Crackers
- Oatmeal Raisin
- Peanut Butter
- Peanut Butter and Jelly
- Pecan Snowball
- Filled Raisin
- Vanilla Wafers
Making your own cookies allows you to control the sugar content, fat content…and is cheaper and more satisfying than buying pre-packaged ones. And this e-book will show you how easy it is!
I am downloading this now, as I loved the Oatmeal Raisin recipe can’t wait to try the Graham Crackers for s’mores over our new fire pit!
