I've been a bit lax in my posting the last few days. I have not been feeling well; in fact, I had to see a doctor for what turned out to be dehydration! The moral of the story? Drink lots of liquids, kiddies. Apparently I haven't been drinking enough. After Thursday evening's flamenco class (which was very challenging), I had been feeling run down and it finally caught up to me. Note to self: bring water AND Gatorade to class next time.
Today I received a copy of a soon-to-be-released gluten free cookbook, Gluten-Free Quick & Easy by Carol Fenster, PhD. I got an e-mail last week from someone at Penguin Group offering me a chance to review the book, and I could not pass it up! So far it's a great read and I am anxious to try some of the recipes. I'll share my thoughts on the book very soon. Also I'll be forwarding some questions to the author, which I hope to post here as well. Carol's website is www.glutenfreequickandeasy.com.
In addition, I'm looking forward to receiving some samples of gluten-free goodies from a place called Grindstone Bakery. They offer a variety of wonderfully delicious-sounding bread and cookies. I can't wait to try these products! Visit their website, http://www.grindstonebakery.com/ for more details about their products.
Finally, my buddy Lynn over at Free to Eat reworked the recipe I posted last week for sesame candy--and morphed it into a cocoa and coconut candy that sounds absolutely divine! I'm going to make a batch asap. Lynn's blog is at http://www.freetoeat.blogspot.com/. For those of you who haven't had a chance to visit her blog, Lynn is an uber-creative lady who has had to reinvent the way she cooks and eats due to multiple food sensitivities. And her family likes to rock-out just like my family does! One day her clan and mine are going to have to get together for one big jam session. Rock on!
