Until Then We'll Have to Muddle Through Some How...

I have been on hiatus for a while as I learned to deal with the effects of Celiac disease on my family.  The Little Ones were diagnosed, and it has been quite an education learning how to substitute, make due, create, re-create...

Tonight, I will be trying to perfect my gluten free brownies.  Before Celiac, I had the perfect recipe.  Now, well, I am getting closer...  There is nothing that will get me off my butt and into the kitchen like the tears of an eight year old who is longing for some home-baked loved.  Food is seriously one of the ways I grew up showing love, so when a child of mine cries for a now-forbidden food, it feels like I am depriving her of love.

Soon, I will be collaberating with a dear friend on a cookbook that boasts amazing gluten free recipes and that celebrates seasonal eating.  We will also be collaborating on a joint blog that tracks our progress.  You can share in each truimph and laugh with us as we muddle through it all!

We will also share recipes on the new blog, so if you want us to post a gluten-free recipe, or recipe that just happen to be gluten-free, just let us know what you are interested in.  Since we are working with seasonal food, we will get to recipes in seasonal order.

i'm eager to find out how the brownies turn out! and i'm wondering if you've seen any of the flourless black bean brownie recipies around.... and no, they don't taste like beans. at all. i wonder what a true baker could do with the recipie... also, love the idea of your new endeavor :)

Gluten-free, seasonal eating... I simply can't wait. *she said conspiratorially* ;)

The gluten free brownies were nice and fudgey, with a hint of espresso. Will try to get the recipe up here very soon.

I have a few cousins who were also diagnosed with Celiac disease. This past Thanksgiving was the first year together where there was Gluten-Free Gravy, and other accommodations. My aunt actually made delicious Gluten-Free brownies! While I still love the delightfully sinful ones I thought the gluten-free were also delicious! Hope you were able to get your recipe down as well!
