Two of those things are totally not true. But one is. I’m writing a book, ya’ll! Excuse me, I get excited and my Okie comes out. Gluten Is My Bitch, the book, will hit shelves in May of 2013 published by Abrams. Which I’m STOKED about. Thanks to my lovely agent at Stonesong, and my adorable friend at Cooking With My Kid who made the intro. Let’s give a shout-out to Alison and Rebecca. Can I get a wha-what?
So I’m going to be busy writing and maybe cursing. Okay, totally cursing.
This also means that I’m madly developing recipes that will be book exclusives, so you won’t be seeing them here. I’m totally sorry, as I’ve tapped my family cookbook which is filled with Southern and Cajun delights. Yep, lots of yumness that would give Paula Deen diabetes all over again. So you can look forward to that when you buy the book next May. Which you’re absolutely going to do, right?
But it’s not all food to kill. I’ll also explore being gluten-free and vegan, for you healthy types (but only a little, I do have a reputation to maintain), and of course gluten-free kid food. ‘Cuz having a gluten-free kid is a major drag. My kid won’t eat french fries and that bums me out. You folks watching your kid’s gluten intake are heroes. I’ll give you a hand! And of course there will be the complaining. So get ready.
In the meantime, let’s play “guess the gluten-free food” with this randomness:
There’s a coffee shop I frequent and this is the gluten-free “pastry” option. I used to love it, but now I’m so totally sick of this thing. I’d never heard of it before, nor have I attempted to make it in my own home.
Do you know what it is?*
No peeking before guessing!
I mean it. Don’t read any further.
You’re totally going to spoil your guess.
Fine. Be that way.
*It’s called a sesame roll. Whatever that means. Made with rice flour and love. Or sesames. Either/Or.
