Triumph Dining has arrived!

If you were looking for the Triumph Dining banner from the original site, have no fear, I have transferred it over for you.  Ta-da!

I love Triumph Dining.  I agreed to be an affiliate for them because...
  1. They are a local company.  Their mailing address is  just up the road in Falls Church, VA.
  2. They have an excellent blog with all kinds of great product release info and links to products like grocery shopping guides and dining cards to help explain to servers and cooks what we need for healthy service.
  3. They have a great newsletter.  I do love reading through it and clicking on the links that interest me.
If you are new to this whole gluten-free thing or just looking for some fresh ideas or the latest news, check out Triumph Dining!  (Hint:  There's a link in the side listing that will take you directly to their blog.)

Recipe round-ups

A new addition:  in the sidebar, you'll see buttons linking you to several weekly recipe round-ups.

I contribute recipes now and again to these, but I have also found them to be a great source of inspiration and of practical recipes.  Often, I have been stumped by cookbooks which call for flours I cannot buy at any of my local or near-local stores, and I appreciate having access to meals which are usually much easier to collect ingredients for.

If you're looking for some good recipes, check these out!  Linda, host of What Can I Eat that's Gluten Free (on Wednesdays), and Amy, host of Slightly Indulgent Tuesday, have a really great thing going.

Welcome to the very first posting on my new blog!  Are you my first follower?  Leave me a comment and let me know:  I have some gluten free goodness for you!

(Wait, wait!  There are already 44 other posts!)

Yes, yes, I know.  Those posts are imported from my original blog:  Here's What Let's Do.  If you want to know a little more about me, feel free to wander over there, but all the good gluten-free stuff is going to be here.

What can you expect from this site?
  • Recipes. Mostly of my own, but if I run across a good one from elsewhere, I'll share that with you too!  If there's interest, I may start a recipe round-up, but let's not get ahead of ourselves now, okay?
  • Cook book reviews.  I adore cook books!  I've purchased many gf cookbooks in the year and a half since my diagnosis, and occasionally I get another as a gift or as an advanced copy.  There are a few reviews on here already, too.  Check the links in the side bar or search for them at the top of the page.
  • Product Reviews.  I write these from time to time for Gluten Free in Baltimore, and I plan to continue that here with reviews of national products and products local to central Virginia.  Some of these will be products offered to me by manufacturers for review, but primarily they will be things I just decided to try for myself.
  • Honesty. Yup.
  • Support.  It's been a rough year and a half, as some of my older posts will attest to.  I feel your pain, new gluten-free diner.  Many of us remember the transition.  It was hard.  It gets easier.  We'll help you through it.  Feel free to ask questions, and I'll provide as much info and guidance as I can.
  • Links.  On the sidebar, there will is a list of other gf blogs that I read, support, or write for.
What you will not see on this site:
  • Medical advice.  I'm a teacher, folks, not a health professional.
  • Advertising for companies I would not use myself.
  • Recommendations for products I don't like or won't use.
  • Mutant zombies.  (Check my personal blog for those - haha)

I hope you enjoy this site.  I welcome your conversation and feedback.  If you're new to the site, take some time to check out some of my older posts.  There's some great recipes out there, and some yummy products, and even my own personal diagnosis story.

Do you have a gf blog?  Let me know!  I'm always looking for new people to link up with.

See you around the web!
