Yes, I’m still working on my cookbook, albeit more slowly these days due to health issues.
What I need to know is this : As a person who needs GFCF cooking resources would you rather have
A: smaller and less expensive books of more pointed focus (ie just sauces , dressings and gravies or other focus)
B: A huge broad scope book that covers everything (think Julia Child here) that costs more
Sound off!!!! I’m trying very hard to put together what people need/want the most and thus have a resource that actually gets used vs. one that sits gathering dust on a high shelf

I’ve been searching for years for GF beer that’s actually drinkable…and I finally found one!!!! Or many as the case may be.
Greens Beer has many different styles that have the same full body, texture and color as its gluten loaded counterparts.
I found it at my local Fred Meyer to boot!
YAY for brewers who think out of the box and with their tastebuds, rather than just an ingredient list!!!!!

As I’ve been tooling around finding information on the Autism Spectrum I’ve noticed a startling lack of information on Adult AS/Autism. And even less about females who are adult and AS/autistic.
Why is this???? There are certainly adults along the autism spectrum, and the children that everyone seems so very single pointedly focused upon do tend to grow up when ones back is turned. And gee, they become adults. I truly applaud the efforts of parents to help their children and the network of information that has ensued. I guess what I’m grousing about is the dearth of stuff available to many adults that need it….and I know many.
While I understand that statistically speaking there are a whole lot fewer girls than boys that are AS/Autistic, I also understand that it tends to manifest very differently in girls and women than in the male of the species due to gender based neurological differences. Speaking statistically again, girls are far more likely to be misdiagnosed due to these differences in manifestation. I know that was certainly the case in my life.
I’d love to hear from y’all adult spectrum specters. Have you found resources? Diets that work? Coping Mechanisms? And how about the stuff that doesn’t work?
Inquiring minds want to know 😉
On a side note I had my first GFCF dinner party the other night…oh and add VEGAN to that as well.
I did a lasagna that was pretty darned good, if I do say so myself. BUT the crowning achievement of the nite was dessert…rich chocolate layer cake , filled with marion/raspberry filling, coated with a semi-sweet chocolate ganache and decorated with fresh berries. This was served with a very rich bittersweet coconut/chocolate ice cream that I whipped up. It was good by any standard, let alone gfcf.
I’m insufferably pleased with myself at this point.

I’d love some feedback from y’all 🙂
If you’re on a gfcf diet what dishes do you miss the very most?
If you’re NOT on a gfcf try and extrapolate…which dishes would you miss the most?
Beer doesn’t count, people 😉
Sound off! I’d really like your input on this one!
