Kill the Gluten!

I just found a great new gluten-free blog: Kill.the.Gluten

The ladies who write this blog are terrifically funny, and I just love it.

Great news! Betty Crocker is going launch a new line of gluten-free mixes! YAY! The most promising is the brownie mix, the one thing I miss the most from my pre-Celiac days. I am so excited, I just can't wait to try it out!

Happy St. Patrick's Day!!

Okay, so I didn't wear any green today, but I do like St. Patty's Day. I am of Irish decent on my mom's side. Not Potato Famine Irish, but Revolutionary War Irish. So the whole "Kiss me I'm Irish" thing really applies to me. St. Patrick's Day is the one day a year when everyone who isn't Irish wishes they were. So it's the one day a year when people want to be me! I love it! I don't drink (even if I wasn't Mormon, the Celiac Disease would keep me away from any malt beverages), and I don't like corned beef and cabbage. So it is a minor holiday, but I am proud of my heritage. It's kind of nice when so many other people appreciate it too.
