“Celiac in the City”
A girl. Gluten-free in Milwaukee. Loves food. Will travel. Diagnosed with Celiac Disease in February 2008. Started a gluten free diet the day of diagnosis. Blessed with friends and family who are supportive and go out of their way to be part of this exciting and sometimes challenging adventure.
Those who welcome these dietary needs with open arms deserve to be recognized. This blog is an opportunity to give credit where it is due, thank those who make life easier, share success stories and give you a peek into our kitchen where I try to get creative, but sometimes I burn the cookies. The blogs and forums of others facing the same issues have been life savers. This is returning the favor.
Sign language interpreter by day, gluten-free guru by night, weekend, and any free moment I can find. In addition to running the blog, I organize monthly GF Get Together events in and around Milwaukee (and sometimes we take field trips!) where we come together to eat, drink, and be merry.
