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!

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!


Quick facts about Celiac Disease:
  • 1 in 133 people have Celiac Disease
  • 97% of those people are undiagnosed
  • Celiac Disease is not an allergy, but an autoimmune disease

Quick Facts about the gluten-free diet:

  • It is not a fad diet
  • It will not necessarily make or help you lose weight
  • It will not necessarily make or help you gain weight
  • It is free of wheat, rye, barley and oats (there are oats that are certified gluten-free that some people can tolerate)
  • The easiest way to transition to a gluten-free diet is to start by eating naturally gluten-free foods – whole, unprocessed foods
