Our family is gluten, dairy, corn, soy and nightshade free and feel much better for the diet change. I decided early on to make cooking and baking a hobby so I wouldn't feel hard done by having to make everything from scratch. Our diet is so much better now. I'm thankful to this and other recipe sites and the many living without bloggers for their great ideas and inspiration. I've chosen not to become a premium member so thank you everyone for reviewing my recipes. I hope they were helpful. <img src="http://i23.photobucket.com/albums/b399/susied214/permanent%20collection/adoptedspring08.jpg"> <img src="http://i250.photobucket.com/albums/gg271/MrsTeny/Permanent%20Collection/PACSpring09Iwasadopted.jpg">
