Schools are starting again and the books are coming out. We started our home school this week and college starts on Monday.  Is anyone at your house getting back to school?  Anyhow, here are non-school related links for you to browse this weekend.

About Linda Etherton

Linda has been gluten free since 2000 when I was diagnosed with celiac disease which propelled me into the world of gluten-free cooking and baking. I am convinced that gluten-free food can and should be delicious, and I never apologize for serving it.

  1. The Subway article sounds awesome until they get to the part about where they make the sandwich. Even if the same employee makes the sandwich from start to finish, it sounds like they are still getting all the sandwich toppings from the same containers where they build the sandwiches with wheat buns. I’m sure crumbs fly into those containers from the work table, or fall off of the workers gloved hands, don’t you agree? Have you heard anything about this?

    • I agree. I would never risk eating there, but people are gluten free for different reasons, and particularly those without celiac might be okay eating there. I can’t say that I’ve heard any reports about it.

      • Thank you for posting the article though, as it answered my question with the very answer I was afraid of. The article was going so great until the last few sentences. I thought they would have said that they make the sandwich in a dedicated gluten-free area separate from the regular sandwich bar, but they didn’t! I won’t be eating there anytime soon sadly.

If you have a question about a recipe (especially substitutions and nutritional information), please read my FAQ page before asking the question in a comment.
