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. Linda,
    Lots of interesting info as usual. Thanks

  2. Gluten-free and more says:

    Once again, your collection of links is great. I am especially happy to read the news about the GF labeling on the meds – its one of the trickiest parts of being celiac. Hope that they are equally vigilant about avoiding cross-contamination. As an aside, I was also impressed at how the article explained what it is to be celiac/GF and distinguished the medical side from the ‘trend’ side.

    Wow on the quinoa news. I am one of those who can’t handle even GF oats without getting violently sick. They suggested quinoa has similar issues? I’m not sure what this means, but certainly additional tests are a good thing. Seems that there is a lot going on under the surface physically in the intestines, body, etc. even if one might not display their usual ‘I got glutened’ symptoms. Wait and see I guess. How have you found quinoa? I tend to be okay with it assuming it is certified GF, but there is always so much going on internally below the surface that we can’t pick up on. At the same time, I’m trying to keep from panic at the ‘may be unsafe’ news all over the place, things change so fast and what is ok one day is not the next, and then ok again!

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.
