Welcome!

Hello to all who have surfed in to join me.  For what it's worth, I'm a mother of two children and I work outside the home full time.  My oldest daughter is on the Autism Spectrum.  On finding that her behavior and progress improved markedly on a gluten-free diet, I set out modifying our lifestyle to accomodate her needs.  Since one of my hobbies is collecting vintage cookbooks, I started adapting those recipes for my daughter.

After sharing some of the results on Facebook or other media, it occurred to me that it would be easiest to set up a dedicated blog for those who were also interested in these things.  Now, since I have a Beaker-like mad scientist streak, I'm much more fond of baking than I am cooking.  Expect a preponderance of baked goods to appear here.  I'll also occasionally make forays into reviewing commercial gluten-free mixes and published cookbooks, and sharing hints and tips.

As things develop, feel free to leave me messages about what you'd most like to see.  If there is a specific "old favorite" recipe that you can't eat since beginning your gluten-free diet, share it with me and I'll see what I can do.

  2. Yes, I'll send some of my vintage recipes to you eventually. Right now I'm testing the open ID issue. So far, it didn't like the LiveJournal link - but it never asked for my password. So I'll go for the Google acct

  3. Yeah, btw, this is Eleanor Deyeson.

    Also, is your blog set on Pacific time on purpose, or is that one of the things that's hard to change?

  4. Nope, just one of the things I had NOT changed. ;-) Thanks for spotting that.

    I'm not sure why it doesn't like OpenID - though now that I think about it, I've had that problem with other people's Blogger accounts before...
