Baking Battles

Our family has been gluten free for nearly a year now.  I felt like I had to learn (and am STILL learning!) to cook and bake all over again!  Gluten-free is so different from gluten-full!  😉


I am still fully switching our pantry over to all the crazy gluten-free items…like brown rice flour, white rice flour, potato starch, tapioca starch…and the list goes on!  I have a few recipes that I love and are easy to make.  I have even more that scare the living daylights out of me when I read them!  They sound so complicated, albeit delicious.  Hopefully one day they won’t seem so daunting and we can delight in their heavenly gluten-free-ness!

Until then, I stick to what I know.

Except that hubby’s doctor wants to run some tests on him and has ordered him to eat gluten!  *gasp* So here I am tickled pink that I get to bake all my favorite tried-and-true recipes for this month!

It was short lived.

Can you unlearn what you knew?  I love baking and am known for my chocolate chip cookies, cake balls, etc.  Yet, this month of gluten-full freedom has made me sad as baked item after baked item has been lacking.

All I know is that I once could bake awesome gluten-full goodies, and now I cannot bake them nor gluten free.  Okay, so it’s not that bad…but it still hurts the heart to feel so lost in the kitchen! 😉

Blessings & JOY ~
