Gluten Free Kitchen Adventures
Did you know that I have celiac disease?
Yep I have it, and I can't eat gluten because of it. (No, not even a little bit, and yes I thought I would "die" without pizza too. I didn't die though, and neither would you. You'd just go to the health food store and buy gluten free pizza like I do.) Life on the gluten free diet is super hard if you live on a cruise ship where your only meal options are in a cafeteria, but if you live on land and have a kitchen it can be just fine. If you have a good attitude about it, it can actually open up a whole new world of food-related creativity.
I have a kitchen this summer (YAY!!!!!!!!!!!!) so I'm going to start a recurring segment on Creating Laura that's all about my kitchen adventures. Each week I'll be taking a traditional dinner staple, turning it gluten free, and posting the recipe in case you want to make it too.
Not gluten free? Don't worry, these won't be boring gluten free recipes where I just substitute gluten free flour for wheat flour. These will be fun, quirky, and unexpected combinations of ingredients that will be yummy to eat, gluten or no gluten.
I'll be back tomorrow with the first recipe!
