    There are so many things i miss….
    My mom’s a celiac for almost 7 years now
    I’m not a diagnosed celiac but i am on the Diet.
    I read all the comments and i have to agree with most of them.
    The thing is i may miss certain things but the fact it that it’s my choice not to eat them because i feel so much better when off Gluten.
    I’ve excelled in school and it help me get controll of my ADD.
    One thing i have to say i miss is being able to have italian breat that’s hard on the outside and soft on the inside.
    I’ll be happy with what ever you end up making so thank you so much!!!!
    Good Luck to all!!!
    and keep making us Celiac’s happy with your great creations 🙂

    I would LOVE some oatmeal raisin cookies, or that coffee cake w/the cinnamon streusel, a crumb-cake type thing, or something like the entenman’s cream cheese/cherry danish cake, or some really really good muffins– like blueberry with a crumb top, chocolate chip, lemon poppyseed, or some great cornbread, or some really good doughy breadsticks to eat with cheese and marinara sauce, yummmmmmmm
