It’s early morning and according to the morning paper, we should expect highs in the 60s with scattered showers today. As I sit here sipping my morning coffee my mind races as I think of everything I need to get done this week. I’ve got several orders to make and deliver. I'm also finalizing the details for our launch in July of our Build A Gluten Free Bakery Box Program all amid contractor’s who are creating miracles by turning a large outdated bathroom into not one, but two (main and master bathroom). After some thought, and a few stares out the window, I finally worked out the details of my production schedule for the remainder of the week.
Now’s the hard part…. what to write on my blog. I’m told blogs should be written at least once a week. Sounds easy enough, but what do I write about. What are you interested in? I find myself staring out the window again as if I’m back in grade school, when suddenly I‘m reminded of the peaceful tranquility nature provides and how lucky and thankful I am that I get to enjoy this “up north” scenery everyday with my husband and children and I don’t even have to leave town.
My memory jogs back to 9 years ago when my daughter was diagnosed gluten intolerant. That first holiday season was a nightmare. I was so worried about how I would incorporate her diet into our holiday meal, that I did what any good mother would do, I made two of everything – traditional stuffing and one gluten free stuffing, traditional sweet potato rolls and a batch of gluten free sweet potato rolls, traditional pumpkin pie and a crust less pumpkin pie. After that first holiday season, I vowed that I would from now on make gluten free food that taste like real food. Making just one dish that the entire family could enjoy.
In the blogs to come, I’ll write about creative ways to entertain friends and family the gluten free way with recipes using a variety of our Mudd Creek products. We’ll also feature dairy free options as well. We hope you'll find the information informative and fun. I also hope you'll let us know what you'd like to see in the coming blogs.
Whose ready for gluten free cooking and baking to be fun again?
