Thanks for great recipes--it is always a struggle to have yummy food. My story is almost identical to yours :)
Amy! So glad you found the blog! I hope you enjoy the yummy GF food and can make it your own. I have found there are a lot of people who have had a similar GF journey! Hope you are enjoying the ride!Pam
I am looking for a bakery that makes gluten free bread in the washington, dc mtro area for my son. Can you recommend any?
I know Red Velvet Cupcakery and Lillet Cafe are good options. Good Luck!
Let me start off by just saying I love your blog! I don't quite remember where I found you but I'm glad that I did! I run www.theglutenfreechefblog.com and I would love to partner with you. I would love to review your cookbook and potentially make/shoot one of the recipes in your book for a blog post and link and share. Would you be open to any of these ideas or others? Let me know.Happy Baking,the gluten free firstname.lastname@example.org
I'm visiting family in Raleigh, NC. Any gluten free bakeries in the area? Thank you.
hi pam iran off your freezer recipes and was just wondering whatevoois I have thyroid problems and beem doing a lot of research and most have said if you have any problems to try going gluten free. I also find when I eat certain foods I get severe stromach cramps and then I get the diaherra. I am unable to lose weight also . was diagnosed two and ahalf years and would like to just feel better. thanks for your time wendy
Hi Pam! great to find your site. Am self diagnosed (no health insurance to confirm) after several years of digestive issues. Was rushed to hospital as little as 5 with horrible gas it turned out. Suffered through that over the years and a few ER visits later, no resolution. Am 42 but last few years have missed work and tons of social outlets...decided to try GF. Worked like a miracle. Unfortunately takes discipline (am in bout now due to pasta and garlic bread). Just wanted to say too that it's not just diarrhea (most common), but constipation, very painful bloating and gas too. http://glutenfreehelp.info/gluten-free-research/gluten-sensitivity-and-constipation-understanding-the-link/Anyway, thanks for the supportive online space!
Hey Pam!!! How are you and the family?? My husband and I are going on our ten year Anniversary trip this December to an all inclusive resort and I'm terrified of getting glutened. I saw on your post on secrets resort but my usband refuse to go to Mexico considering the drug wars that are going on so I'm going to honor his request instead of trying to convince him lol, so now I'm worried that I won't find anywhere else like the secrets you went to. I've heard many horror stories of people getting glutened at resorts that knew nothing about gluten even when their travel agent told them otherwise.Any suggestions would be appreciated :)
Congrats on 10 yrs!!! I know the secrets chain has resorts in other locations so you may want to see if they have any outside of Mexico. Make sure you bring safe GF snacks just in case! Have a great trip!
Hi. Just wanted to thank you for your wonderful breakfast casserole recipe from 2011. I found it when I googled gluten-free breakfast casserole. My family is not gluten free, but I needed to feed a swim team of 50 girls that includes 1 girl who does have a gluten free diet. Apparently most people don't take her diet into consideration, and she was THRILLED when I told her I had a gluten free dish for her. She LOVED your recipe, as did every other girl who ate it! Hands down, it was the favorite of all the casseroles. It is going to be a staple in my recipe box from now on. Thank you!
This warms my heart!!! So glad you where able to make a special dish for the GF girl. I'm sure she was over joyed to be able to eat! Thanks so much!Pam
My oldest daughter has Hashimoto's so she avoids not only gluten but I highly allergic to wheat and somewhat to eggs( we had allergy testing done) plus no brown beans and no peanut butter. She actually has grown allergic to all the foods she eats on a daily basis. She is 21 and it has been very hard on her. Do you happen to have a list of brand names that you use? I couldn't find one.

Hi Pam! I met you at the Texas Wellness.....Bought your cookbook! I just made Chicken fried rice and Shepherd's Pie! LOVE BOTH!!! Looking forward to trying the onion rings and meatloaf next week. Thank You!!! I survive being celiac because of people like you! You are making it easy!!! Connie
Connie - you warm my heart! So glad you enjoyed the recipes! Happy cooking! Pam
Hi Pam, My 4 year old daughter was recently seen by our pediatrician and when told all the symptoms she immediately tested her for celiac disease as well as other things. We were told to go ahead and change her diet because she has already had two inflammation markers come up elevated. I really enjoyed reading through your blog and recipes and feel they are going to be very helpful. I find this to be so scary, because she is already such a picky eater and I am worried she won't adjust as well as older kids and adults would, is there any advice you can give me in helping our family transition? Thank you! Jordan
Jordan,Feeding a picky 4 year old is hard enough! Feeding them GF is even harder!My advice would be to seek out other families in your area who are GF. They will be a great resource for you! There are support groups all over. Then just try different GF products and see which ones she likes. My new ebook would be a great guide for you too. Good luck!Pam
