How do you deal with all the Gluten during the Holiday Season?
Here are just some of the ingredients from my grandma's secret biscotti cookies. That's right, a whole 5lb bag of all purpose flour goes into these delicious, well-loved cookies. Well, as least I remember them to be delicious and the family seems to enjoy them.
I don't want to be left out of the family traditions on the count of my gluten free allergy. I mean, it sucks to miss out on a number of life's pleasures, but more so during the holiday season when all I want to do is spend as much time with my family and loved ones as possible. Every year, I say, what the hey and go all in, and I ALWAYS regret it later on in the day when I realize that just the inhalation and close counters with gluten have caused me to feel like CRAP!
This year I decided I wanted to enjoy the family traditions and NOT get sick.
I came equipped. I have the essential apron. Added some hospital gloves to keep my hands clean and what I figure to be the most important part of this get-up.... the face mask. I may look ridiculous, I take that back, I know I look ridiculous. However, this was my first experience joining in with the family traditions and NOT getting sick so this will become an essential uniform for baking non-gf items!
