Thank you for your kind words and messages about Celiacs Disease. Researching and cooking has been a full time job. Gluten is in everything--toothpaste, envelopes, ketchup, spices, and on and on. The internet has been my best friend, looking up every item before I put it in whatever I am cooking. I have cried (in the middle of the grocery store was especially wonderful). I feel like I have lost part of my identity. You see, I am a baker. I pride myself on making things from scratch--homemade bread, cinnamon rolls, cookies, pasta, waffles...I am the mom who has the cookies for the neighborhood kids, who brings the desserts to functions. I have worked on perfecting my family's favorites for over 2o years. But, I am approaching this new challenge with a positive attitude. I will find new favorites while helping my family be as healthy as we can.
Creating with junk this week has not happened, so I thought I'd show you something from my blogging beginnings, when I had 3 readers :). I made this message center from a free screen frame picked out of a garbage pile:
