  1. I recently found out I have an intolerance to gluten, and have been looking for tried and true recipes to replace some of our favorites. I am definitely putting this on our to-try list. Thanks for posting!

  2. Mmm, onions and cheddar, these must be good!


  3. Abby - I think you will like them! Let me know if you try them out. Also, I have lots of recipes that are gluten free. On the homepage if you look on the right hand side you will see a list of tags and Gluten Free is there, check out some of the other recipes. Thanks for stopping by PS- I stoped by your blog (Food For Later) that gnocchi sounds SO good. I will have to try it on a special occasion (I dont usually use white flour) I wonder if you could try this with coconut flour or almond flour in light of your recently diagnosed gluten issue. Something to think about!

    Sense of Home - I think they are! Thank you! I went your blog- cute cat! And some great looking recipes! Thanks so much for reading and taking the time to comment.
