Craving Cinnamon Rolls...

Thanks to a fantastic baking mix I found I have been able to get creative with baked goods.  I have yet to figure out a good yeast raised roll recipe but in the meantime these will work. :) 

Baking mix, maple syrup, butter, cinnamon, almond milk and SO tasty :) 

The next day I tweaked it a bit for blueberry biscuits.. also fantastic! 

The gluten free- sugar/sweetener free mix I found is from Walmart.  I'm trying to find a link for it online but haven't had much luck. I will update with the name/brand shortly.

Pizza as it looks now

I have discovered cauliflower crust pizza. It's wonderful. It definitely gets the job done giving up traditional pizza. I still miss tomatoes but this satisfies for crust! 

Roasted garlic, ham and kale pizza

Home made turkey sausage, black olive and green pepper pizza 

Garbage pizza (last night's leftovers, today's pizza- green bean, black olive, pepperoni, ham, Swiss, corn, chicken , mushroom)

Good-bye Gluten!

So it would appear that Celiac's is the primary cause for my issues.  We are just at the end of getting an official diagnosis but it is the thing that all specialists, myself and my family agree fits every test, every mri, every symptom, and of course the diet changes are a bit indicator of diet related issues. I just went through a week long gluten challenge, adding much gluten and all triggers back into my diet to see how I responded with pain/skin/etc and to follow up with labs to see if they show a more clear picture with a flair going on.

So here on out.. it's no:

Raw Garlic
Raw Onion
