Granola is one of the best snack foods available. Not only is it quick to make, tasty and readily available, but it is also healthy. A large bowl of granola on the kitchen table is a great solution of either midday or midnight munchies!
But, is it gluten-free? It can be difficult to tell, especially because certain kinds of granola contain foods which are dangerously close to gluten, such as, oats, seeds and nuts. How do you know whether or not the products are gluten-related? Read More
I’m sure that some of the most popular cakes eaten during birthdays are cheesecakes. And why not? Cheese cake is absolutely one of the most delicious things in the world.
Actually, I have a little secret to reveal. When I was little, I honestly believed that cheesecake had ordinary cheese in it (like cheddar or Swiss cheese for sandwiches). Then my parents realized that I had gluten problems and that the crust had gluten, so my cheesecake treat days were over….. or so I thought…
Who doesn’t love pumpkin muffins and pumpkin bread? I know that I do. They are one of my favorite treats.
They are spicy, sweet and altogether scrumptious. Also, they ALWAYS succeed in making me think of autumn (which is one of my favorite seasons). But, why just have these special treats only when that wonderful season comes around? Since I love pumpkin bread/muffins so much, I can’t resist having one every now and then.

One of my favorite foods for breakfast is muffins. I think that the real way to lure me out of bed on Sunday morning is a hot plateful of them.
When I was first diagnosed with gluten intolerance, I did not even know what a muffin tasted like since gluten was a rarity in our house (due to the fact that my sister could not have gluten for many years). I had no idea what I was missing until about five years later.
Luckily, since my mother is a dedicated cook, she scouted out some of the best muffin recipes and mixes for me. At almost any meal, we could expect some new gluten-free delicacy thanks to her hard work.
She worked for many years to satisfy my craving for muffins and other gluten free foods and, I’m very grateful…
