At Last, Good Gluten-free Baking

I learned to bake from my mother. She’d get me to retrieve the heavy bag of white flour and heave it up on the counter. Then I watched her mix that flour with butter and sugar, milk and baking powder, into cookies or pies. As I grew older, I became the baker. The flour flew […]

So much more than pasta When my husband-to-be and I told people that we were going to Italy for our honeymoon, everyone had the same reaction. “What! That’s the land of pasta and pizza. You have celiac. What are you going to eat?” I smiled and said, “you’ll see.” For months, I’d been doing research. […]

The Wonder of Words on a Page

For almost as long as I have been alive, I have wanted to be a writer. But no one could have told me that my first book would be a gluten-free food memoir. As a pre-pubescent, I poured out my heart in a teddy bear journal. Later, I dreamed fictional worlds, wandered through words on […]

The only hitch was the food. We asked one of our childbirth preparation […]

Pregnancy Cravings

A belly swells with baby – and good food. I have never thought of living gluten-free as a deprivation. But the day I followed a bizarre craving for lemongrass, right that instant, I realized that eating while pregnant might be a bit more challenging. Scanning the shelves of my favourite grocery store, I found that […]
