Hi Everyone!! How are you doing? We are good and enjoying some warmer temps for a couple of days before we get another cold front tomorrow. 🙁 It’s been in the high 70’s and just perfect! So sad to see it go, but I know it will return soon.
A couple of weeks ago I shared with you my mom’s battle with Celiac disease. She was diagnosed 2 years ago, but now that she is on the right diet she is as healthy as can be! If you didn’t get a chance to read about her story you can find it here. I know a lot of people suffer and don’t know why they are sick just like she did. She went on way to long before insisting on further testing. Don’t ever be afraid to listen to your body and your gut. It could save your life!
Well on a lighter note…. my parents come to visit quite a bit. They can’t stay away from their precious grand kids for long. When they are here I LOVE to cook for them. It has become more of a challenge because I have to cook a little bit differently than I usually do, but I am discovering delicious recipes and easy ways to keep gluten out of our meals all the time.
When I have bought my mom bread in the past I have always gotten Udi bread from the freezer section. She loves Udi bread! Well, now at Walmart they sell a Florence Street Bakery Country Seeded Bread also by Udi in the bakery section.We are all very excited about this new bread. Doesn’t it look good and perfect for a sandwich or toasted with some jelly?? I love fresh breads from the bakery! Can you tell I am hungry as I’m writing this???
My parents are coming to see us in a few weeks and I want to to make a Baked French Toast casserole for the family while they are here. I wouldn’t be able to use the previous recipe that I have because it calls for the type of bread that has gluten in it. So when I discovered this bread I was anxious to try it in the casserole. I went ahead and made it a few days ago using the country seeded bread from Walmart to see how it tasted. And it was delicious! I am so excited to make this for her. You would never know the difference between a regular or this gluten free Baked French Toast Casserole. Both are fantastic for a lazy Saturday morning at home or a special occasion such as Christmas, Easter, or a birthday.
