I can not try to explain how hard it really is… I spent a good few weeks gluten-free (well, 98% gluten free- I did partake of a few flour tortillas and croutons in salads). Then my son’s birthday came and it was a whirlwind of bready delight. OK – it SEEMED delightful at the time.Continue Reading “It’s harder than it looks”
Communication is key – and “I’m fine” is usually bullsh…
