How the Blog was Born

Hi, my name is Geri and I'm a reformed Gluten Eater. I've been Gluten Free for over 4 years now, and I'm hanging on! In fact I'm such a Gluten Free fanatic that I'm sure I irritate my friends with all my "this is why gluten is bad for you" talk! But I have had a few friends want to jump on the wagon with me, so this is for them. I decided it might be easier to have my recipes in a place where they could get them instead of waiting for me to email them!! And it gives me a venue to talk all I want about the evils of gluten, and traditional medicine, and artificial sweeteners and so on and I will never know if you tune me out!! So that is How the Blog was Born. Whether it dies or not...we shall see....well I don't think you can kill one of these things, so I guess it's here to stay. If you want some ideas and recipes on how to eat Gluten Free, and how to keep your kids and yourself out of the doctors office then feel free to join me!! And if you have things to share, please comment and I'll add it on!!

Enjoy the Journey!!

Pancakes or Waffles

GF Pancakes or Waffles
These work as pancakes but I use the exact recipe for waffles, which my kids like better!

2 C Featherlight Mix
1 tsp Xanthan gum
5 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
1/4 C ground flax seed (flaxseed meal)

mix dry ingredients together
2 1/4 C milk
5 Tbs oil
2 eggs

Put eggs and oil in a large mixing bowl.  DO NOT MIX.  Put dry ingredients on top and start to mix slowly, adding the milk.  Mix  minimally. Add about a tsp of vinegar to mix.  Leave the batter lumpy.

Cook on a warm griddle until bubbles appear on the surface.  Flip and cook.  They take a little longer to cook all the way through so be patient!!  Waffles take about 4 minutes.
