    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!

    Free CookiE-book

    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
    • Gingerbread
    • Linzertorte
    • Oatmeal Raisin
    • Peanut Butter
    • Peanut Butter and Jelly
    • Pecan Snowball
    • Filled Raisin
    • Snickerdoodles
    • 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!
