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.
