I've been experimenting with gluten free cooking since being diagnosed with Celiac Disease in 1988. My sweet tooth made me highly motivated to convert my favorite recipes. My husband and I have been married 30 years. Our two grown children have vacated the house, which frees up more furniture for our three cats to sleep on. At the moment I've been waiting for a double lung transplant for 2 years, 7 months. Not much energy for cooking, so fast and easy recipes are a must. February 8, 2008 This is an update from Queen Bead's sister. "Queen Bead" passed away peacefully, surrounded by her loving family, on February 8, 2008. A lung transplant never became available for her. As you enjoy her recipes, please think of her courage in facing her difficulties and be thankful for your health. Please -- sign your donor card and encourage others to do the same.
