#GlutenFree Soliloquy & An Announcement

So....Things are a little crazy lately.  Haven't I been saying this over and over again, like a scene from Groundhog Day?  After much (much) searching...and many miles traveled...and many (many) hours spent preoccupied, an opportunity came about for Sean & I.  We are going to ALASKA for the summer; we have a job lined up and are extremely excited!  Alaska has been on our bucket list for many years.  We have purchased a 38 foot motor home, and just downsized & shuffled all of our belongings into it.  The plan is to head south - down the East Coast, then northwest to our destination.  We are just about ready to go......except Mother Nature has other plans.....doesn't she know Spring is only days away?  

All that being said, combined with several (many - I've lost my mojo!!) food fails, has left me pretty engaged.  I've put together a Gluten Free roundup to hold you over (until I can get my act together)!  Weather you avoid gluten for medical reasons, or just for healthy living, I think you'll enjoy the following posts.  **Please note, some original recipes will have to be altered slightly as noted below.

 Gluten Free Beverages:

We tend to drink a lot of tea:  
Transform your favorite tea with molasses, spices and honey - Gingersnap Tea
