Gluten-Free While On Vacation

By katie fries

My husband and I just returned from a short trip to Seattle.

Breakfast for the Gluten-Free Family

By katie fries

One thing that I have personally noticed about eating gluten-free is that, after awhile, it’s easy to accept that I can’t eat the way everyone else does. This is not to say that I don’t miss old favorites, or that it’s easy to deal with dining outside the home. Those are topics for a different […]

An Introduction

By katie fries

If you had told me seven years ago, when I was pregnant with my first son, that on this day in May 2010 I would be standing in my kitchen making a peanut butter and jelly sandwich on gluten-free bread I made in my own bread maker–well, I don’t think there’s any way I would […]
