Ultimate Blog Party 2010
Welcome to The Gluten-Free Homemaker. Here you will find recipes for delicious gluten-free food that is taste tested. My testers include my husband and three teenage sons, as well as various friends and extended family. I have been cooking and baking gluten-free for over nine years so I have a little experience, but I’m still learning also.
What is gluten-free?
If you’re not familiar with the term “gluten-free” it means food that is free of gluten, a protein found in wheat, rye, & barley. In addition, main stream oats are contaminated with wheat and have to be avoided. People with celiac disease are required to be on a gluten-free diet for life. Other people just don’t tolerate gluten, and some people find that a gluten-free diet helps children with autism spectrum disorders or ADD/ADHD.
Gluten-free can be delicious for anyone.
If you don’t eat gluten-free, you might still find this blog useful. While the baking recipes won’t work for you because they have lots of ingredients you wouldn’t normally have in your kitchen, many of my dinner ideas are loved by anyone including this Mexican lasagna:
What you will find at The Gluten-Free Homemaker.
This blog provides recipes as well as information on celiac disease, gluten-free living, and other food/kitchen related topics. I host a weekly carnival, Gluten-Free Wednesdays, where people link to a gluten-free recipe, review, or other gluten-free eating idea. You don’t have to have a gluten-free blog, but the post you link to should be gluten-free. At the end of each month, I post a review of links from that month. You can read more about the carnival here.
A Few Favorite Recipes.
Obviously, baking is the biggest challenge to the gluten-free cook. It is a challenge I have enjoyed and here are a few results.
French Bread Rolls
Pecan Praline Cake
Don’t ever feel sorry for me because I’m on a gluten-free diet! Thanks for stopping by.

My sister-in-law eats gluten-free. When she comes I'm always trying to find ways to make "real" food for her that we will all enjoy. I can't wait to share the blog with her, too!

I need to eat more GF and now I have no excuse! Thank you for sharing all these great - tried and true - recipes!
I know how hard it is to find gluten-free recipes. For a time, we thought my husband was intolerant of gluten. Not the case...well, we think. Great to find your blog with heaps of gluten-free recipes...just in case.
I’d love your input on my new meme Mom Monday! Since it’s new, I’m trying to get it all worked out and let others know about it. :) Have a fantastic weekend!
Please feel free to stop by mine!

Stopping by from the Ultimate Blog party by 5 Minutes for Mom.
We ate gluten free for over 2 years and I got quite obsessed with gluten free baking. I rather enjoyed it, but we brought it back into our diet and we're all doing fine with it. (I still like to do gluten free once in a while for our guts.)
I just wanted to say hello. Randomly clicked over from the blog party.
Have a beautiful Thursday.
