About Me






My name is Erin and I am a Texas wife, mommy of two; living Gluten Free. 

By choice? NO

With a purpose? YES

After three months of bloodwork, waiting, DNA tests, waiting, a small intestine biopsy, waiting, I was diagnosed with Celiac Disease
on July 16,2008.

Join me as I journey through the Gluten Free world…all with THE purpose of healing my body and improving my health.

P.S.  I love to bake and eat sweet things.   You’ll definitely see your fair share of sugar. 🙂

  1. Dear Erin –

    Before your diagnosis, I’d never heard of Celiac Disease. Thank you for educating me and I applaud you as you face this life challenge with humor and grace. You are an amazing woman.


  2. You are welcome friend.
    Besides the blog being an emotional release for me, It is my hope that it will help others learn about Celiac Disease 🙂

  3. With pancakes that look like that, I think I’ll chang MY diet ! yummmm !

    Am hoping web travel friends find your blog and add to your needed gluten-free knowledge my dear ~

    I’m admiring your discipline !


  4. Dad, I would love to have you on the Gluten Free ride 🙂

  5. Hey Erin-

    Yes, I am a lucky recipient of Celiacs. 🙂 Was diagnosed 4 years ago…. My diagnosis only came because my anemia became out of control and I was at the point of needing a blood transfusion. Ack!

    Lucky me tho, I have no other Celiac symptoms! I try to stay gluten free 99% of the time, but occasionally I do cheat. I hate to admit that, but I have no internal monitor that makes me feel badly when I eat it. (other than over the long term with my blood counts) I sort of wish I did, it would keep me on the straight and narrow that is for sure. 🙂

    As you know staying GF is a challenge, and a learning process!! One that has been a continual project for me over the past 4 years. But so much fun to learn and try new ways of baking. Plus it helps my family, my Dad has now been diagnosed with it as well… So I pass along the info to my whole family. 🙂

    Have you been feeling better since you are GF?

  6. Just came across your site through Meghann’s. I have blood tests coming up to test for celiac disease. I have some pretty annoying tummy troubles so I am really hping this is the answer… although I’m a bit nerous about the dietary changes! Your blog is an inspiration though and I’ll be back often (even more so if the tests come back positive!). Thanks for a great site.

  7. I just found your blog – your recipes look great! My husband is gluten free, so I’ve pretty much adapted to a GF lifestyle myself…it was crazy at first, and now I am starting to really find ways to play to create yummy GF food 🙂

  8. Hi Erin! I nominated you for “The Attitude of Gratitude” award. http://tinyurl.com/cclcge

  9. Great site, and thanks for this…. I was diagnosed via blood test 10 days ago awaiting biopsy… but when I discovered that my tiredness arrived from microcytic anemia a trip to the GI doc lead to the appropriate test… My wife was crushed with my dx because she loves cupcakes and cakes in general…. so looking forward to trying your GF recipes… Thanks for the blog!

  10. welcome doug!
    yes, a celiac diagnosis can be a bit heart wrenching to a family but believe me when i tell you that you have endless support from the blogging community.
    i can definitely relate to your wife’s luv of sweet things. 🙂
