“We are, of course. We’re celiac sisters.” Shauna Ahern

“We are, of course. We’re celiac sisters.” Shauna Ahern

If you are not familiar with Shauna Ahern, from Gluten Free Girl and the Chef then you should be.   There is not much I could say that would do her cookbooks and blog justice so I will just say go check it out for yourself.  The recipes, the writing, the photos, all so wonderful. You will see on a recent post titled, Like Sisters, Really,  there is a very kind story about my bakery and book after her and her lovely family came to visit me at the store .  I am so very grateful for the post, great…

Time to Take Back Your Health!!

Time to Take Back Your Health!!

I have way too many wonderful recipes to not be sharing with you.  Especially since I cook pretty much 99% of every meal I eat, own and operate a gluten free allergy friendly bakery in NY and am always creating new dishes all the time.  Of course they are all gluten, egg, dairy, soy, refined sugar free, as well as nutrition packed, always organic and always with the idea of keeping the gut calm and in healing mode.   I haven’t been keeping these recipes from you, I promise.  Life just pulled me in 10 different directions. Until yesterday. While…

Discontent? Disconnect in 2015!

Discontent? Disconnect in 2015!

Another year is here!  I wrote the blog below back in the beginning of 2013 but bares repeating I believe.   After you read it I want you to take a moment and think;  Did you treat yourself kinder since 2013?   If your anything like me you might have… for some time.   Then fell back into your old ways of feeling bad about yourself for one reason or another.  Especially when dealing with Celiac Disease.   Feeling bad and even apologizing for your disease and maybe even been down on yourself for having this disease or any disease…

New and Improved ALL PURPOSE FLOUR IS BACK!!!!

This time of year brings back my favorite memories of baking in the kitchen with my older sister for hours. The joy I would get to be in the kitchen making sweet treats and then eating every last one of them was only one part of the fun. It was also the time spent with her, being creative and then sharing what we made with others. When I was diagnosed with celiac disease, that all disappeared. For a time. Until one day I decided that I would not be afraid of getting in my kitchen again and REINVENTING those traditions…

Frustrated Celiac? Vigilant gluten-free eater yet STILL FEEL BAD? Missing Link…MTHFR?

Frustrated Celiac? Vigilant gluten-free eater yet STILL FEEL BAD? Missing Link…MTHFR?

If I had a dollar for every time some “desperate for answers” soul has asked me, ” WHEN WILL I FEEL BETTER?  I’M A VIGILANT GLUTEN FREE EATER SO WHY DO I STIL FEEL AWFUL!”, I would be a very rich lady. It makes me so very very sad that I cannot give them a clear answer. And it’s not because I don’t want to give them an answer. I do my best to go through their daily diet to see where they may be getting hidden gluten and discuss the necessity of giving up dairy and other possible allergens…

Celiac Awareness Tour, Media Madness And Jon Stewart

Celiac Awareness Tour, Media Madness And Jon Stewart

Well…it’s been a busy couple of months. The bakery, the new facility and the book tour has been crazy. I can officially say the Celiac Awareness Jennifer’s Way Book Tour is finally finished and wow what a ride. If you have followed along here then you know the trials and tribulations it took to get this book to the masses. From years of trying to convince publishers that a book like this was useful and not depressing (as many wanted a “happy ending” or a “wow you’re cured moment” or worse, celebrity tell all nonsense) to the insanity of trying…
