wow. we heart YOU

Wow. Melanie and I have been pretty slow at updating things around here, but I have to say! You all totally ROCK! We still get so many thoughtful emails appreciating the time we have put into these photos and recipes and I am so grateful for them. Thank you! So here are some updates for our friends that are still hanging around and these new ones that are finding us every day.

1) Let's see, I had another baby. That's the second one I have had since starting this site- making it a grand total of three in my family now. Her name is Sylvia born 5/23/09.

2) Melanie found out that her local Barrow's Pizza here in Arizona serves gluten-free pizza that is super yummy for $10. I am not aware if it is going national or not, but if you have one near you tell them you want it.
3) Melanie also found out Wal*Mart carries some gluten-free labeled food storage! I will suggest she expand on this when she has a moment (nudge, nudge).

4) I happened upon this Gluten-Free Pantry mix at Wal*Mart and would show you a photo of the brownies, but my husband ate the pan so fast I couldn't get a shot. Big hit- and he's hard to please in the gf brownie category.
5) AND I heard these details from our friends at General Mills regarding their GF Betty Crocker products:

* We’ve made the chocolate chips in our cookies bigger! When they hit store shelves, they’ll have standard-sized chips.

*All 4 products are Kosher Pareve, Made in a Gluten Free Processing Facility, and carry BoxTops for Education®

*For those who don’t want to add dairy, we’ve created no-butter preparation directions and will post them on our product site: (Note: the site isn’t up yet, but we’re pushing for at least something to be up in early May)

*The site will also have a product locator (type in your location and it’ll tell you the stores near you that have sold the product within the past 90 days), recipes, and FAQs.

*Betty Crocker® Gluten Free Dessert Mixes are a proud sponsor of the Celiac Disease Foundation

*Folks can let us know if they want ongoing info/offers about General Mills’ growing line of GF products… If they call our Consumer Services number: 1(800)446-1898 (same as is on the boxes), they can sign up. The real perk of this re: the new products is that we have coupons that we’ll be sending to each household that signs up this summer so they can try a box of the new Betty Crocker® Gluten Free Dessert Mixes completely on us.

WOW! Just came across your blog today and can't keep my eyes off of it. I was diagnosed a year ago and have struggled. Your blog may just be my savior! Thank you, thank you, thank you!!

I forgot... I made a trifle with the yellow Betty Crocker cake mix, fresh fruit and pudding. TO DIE FOR. No one knew it was GF!! Even my husband (non-GF-er, like myself) was munching on the cake and couldn't believe it when I told him it was GF! Kudos to Betty! The mixes are decently priced around here, too... $3.49 to $4.49, depending on store...

You know, I'm going to try that pizza place, I'm so glad you posted that! I never knew, we just don't go, hehe. We went to a place in Tempe I think a while ago and we paid like 50 bucks to eat pizza and NEVER went back, especially cuz Kassidy didn't even eat the dumb thing so ya for Barrows, we're on our way, LOL.

Just found your blog. We found out my son has celiacs in May of this year, so we have been on a learning adventure. Thanks for sharing your recipes, I need all the help I can get.
