My husband and 7 year old son were diagnosed with celiac disease in 2012. I'll admit that when my husband was diagnosed I thought "I can do this". When my son was diagnosed, I cried for a week straight. I hated that his diet needed to be so restricted and I felt so much pressure on me to make sure he didn't get any gluten. I kept thinking what is going to happen when kids in his 2nd grade class bring in cupcakes or donuts for their birthdays. I didn't want him to feel different or upset that he couldn't eat what the other kids were eating. My son is a rock star and has been amazing with these changes but I have had to be the one to make these changes for my family. Holy Cow! I have been overwhelmed with recipes and they all seem to have about a billion ingredients and I don't even know what they are. I have 4 kids the oldest is 7 so I don't have time to go though the rigamaroll of difficult recipes. I've made it my mission to bake simple, but good gluten free meals and sweets (my favorite).
