Thankful to be Celiac

0 Comments 26 November 2013

I began blogging in 2003, and have listed celiac disease as something I was thankful for every November since then. Some years and some articles were harder than others. In the early years as a celiac, I felt humbled by the fact my family and friends loved me enough to eat food-that-tasted-like-cardboard and then wish each other a happy holiday. Thank heavens those days are gone forever. There will be choices among rolls, turkey dressing, rolls, pies, and other desserts — something delicious for everyone.

Is Hummus Gluten Free?

0 Comments 21 November 2013

Hummus is a dip made freom ground chickpeas and sesame paste (often called tanini). It is usually enhanced by flavorings and spices. The only possible issue is the result of cross-contamination or the flavorings and spices that may be added. You can control both problems by preparing the dish in your safe kitchen and being aware of what your are adding to ‘improve’ the dish.
