mom and betty

A little over a month ago, my father and I were both diagnosed with celiac disease. This means no wheat, gluten, barley, rye, and oats...translation....no flour. I am very thankful for a mom who has searched heaven and earth for ways to make this year's Thanksgiving dinner taste like it has for the past 30 years. The ultimate excitement was finding out Betty Crocker now has gluten free mixes. I tried the chocolate chip cookie mix and couldn't believe my taste buds. The cookies didn't taste any different from other chocolate chip cookies, except for Kayce's...girl can make one crazy delicious chocolate chip cookie. But thank you Mom and Betty for making life and meals a little more normal this holiday season!

I'm happy you found a treat to eat. I've noticed several restaurants lately with celiac menus. Did you have ongoing symptoms or all of a sudden?

I had ongoing symptoms but they were somehow livable. It wasn't until my Dad was diagnosed that I started to realize my symptoms were associated with the disease.
