The Foods I like and the Foods I Eat and the Foods I like to eat.

Ok so eating with variation has never been my strong suit. I grew up in a meat and potatoes family. When I got married, I didn't know how to cook chicken - for realzees, I had no idea. I also didn't have a varied palatte. For example, I didn't know what an avocado tasted like until I was twenty, I didn't know you could make pasta out of anything other than wheat and I thought that a pomegranate was fake, seriously. Working in restaurants and feeding my Trevor and spawn has done wonders for my glossary of foods. I am happy to report that I can cook a variety of chow and I think I am a pretty good cook. I doubt Trev would disagree, he's an intelligent man. My new challenge has been Gluten free cooking. I have struggled to find the right products that act semi normal. Pasta has been a big struggle. I don't care what anyone says but brown rice pasta is craptastic. There is nothing worse then sitting and watching my family dig into a huge spaghetti dinner, twirling and twisting their way through the meal I so lovingly prepared while I sit with a pile of brown snot slathered in sauce on my plate. It's shit, I hate it, don't argue. Please see some of my fave Gluten Free items.

Best Pasta Ever! Most Gluten Eaters can't tell the difference. A word of caution, it does not last well for the next day (it gets grainy) so eat it right away and the spagetti is a little tough.

The closest thing you will ever get to a Ritz. Thats right, let go of the Ritz Crackers, they are dead to you.

The best bread crumbs for those who are too lazy to make their own, like me.

OK so.... most Celiacs are told that we can't have oats so WHY would I put this in? Well, we can't have oats because they are 99% of the time processed with wheat, these oats are not and therefore you can eat these. I will add my
recipe for granola. It's yummy good good.

Ok, I know these look kinda lame, but I will pull you into my cirlce of trust and tell you that these chips are to DIE for. My friend Megan and I polished off a bag in 10 minutes once. She is pregnant and I have no excuse but we still did.

Who doesn't love pancakes? Maple syrup is Gluten Free already and this is one of the few mixes that doesn't ask for a bunch of different added ingredients.
