This is a post about wonderful Gluten Free Food.  This is a post about what I love most about people:

  • Honesty
  • Integrity
  • Coming from your heart
  • Being who you are regardless of what others might say or think
  • Steadfastness - loyalty to your lifestyle, to your family and friends, in other words not "buckling" to what the "status quo" might be at any given time

And most importantly:  Connecting with people, through knowledge, awareness, education, sharing, and inspiring people in all walks of life.
In the past year I have had the privilege of a most delightful connection with such a person:
Shirley, from Gluten Free Easily.  Reading Shirley's blog is such an inspiration.
She seems to thrive in connecting with people, sharing knowledge, information, life experiences - I love that she so easily puts this forward to the world. Thank you Shirley.... for touching my world.
Here are a few examples of what Shirley does for our Gluten Free World:
Her amazing monthly Gluten Free Support Group that she also shares through her blog.  Information, education, about Gluten Free cooking, great Gluten Free Resources, Cook books, personal experiences etc.  I love it!  I love how she gathers people together each month and shares...Shirley, can I come live with you?
Then, there are her recipes.  Here are just a couple of Shirley's wonderful easy Gluten Free Recipes: (there are many recipes on her blog - so worth checking out!)
Amazing muffins - these are so on my to-do list ...Mama! They sound fabulous.  We hope to get our new stove/oven in the next couple of days...yeahhh!
Then, Pomegranate Sherbert - this did not last two seconds in my household. I had to make a second batch the next day!
How about: Pork Tenderloin With Maple Glaze?  I so gotta try this one on a busy day... Yummm!
So, in a few words I want to say "Thank you Shirley, for all that you do, for all that you share in our "Gluten Free World".  You help make our "Gluten Free World", a truly better one to be in. 🙂
