Where I've Been

Hello, world. It’s been so long! I’ve been dreadful about my gluten free internet presence for the past few months. This summer, I was working part time, which left me plenty of time for cooking, writing and learning. Now, I have a full time 9-5 (don’t get me started about the façade that is the 40 hour workweek) and am back in school, this time for nutrition consulting.

That’s right, I’m enrolled in the NTA’s Nutrition Consultant program and will hopefully be certified this June, enabling me to start my own nutrition practice and better help folks like you embrace real food and live their gluten free lives to the fullest. I am so far loving the course. It’s great to have a structured environment to study the things I already geek out about and I love the enthusiasm and knowledge that the other students bring to the table.

The business of this fall has meant that some other projects have fallen by the wayside (looking at you, Gluten Free Guide to College), but rest assured that I have a few things in the works that I think you’ll really enjoy.

That’s it from me! Thanks for sticking around despite my unexplained hiatus. I hope you all are having a lovely fall (or Indian summer, as the case may be) and are taking advantage of all things pumpkin and spice.

Happy Monday,

Alice

Peach Cobbler Muffins

It’s the tail end of the peach season in these parts, so here’s my final stone fruit recipe of the year: peach cobbler muffins. I’ve probably cooked, baked or preserved over 30 pounds of peaches this summer, which has left me a little peached out, but I’d still make these again in a heartbeat! They take almost no time to make and, with a little bit of yogurt or some nut butter, are a healthy snack or breakfast on the go.

Peach, Ginger & Cardamom Popsicles

I know I keep posting about popsicles, but dang if this isn’t the best one I’ve made yet. Cardamom, ginger and peach are so perfect together, I can’t believe I hadn’t thought of it earlier. This recipe is a little more complicated than my other popsicle recipes in that it involves a frying pan, but is still easy to make and is a sure summer hit. As usual, this is a tiny recipe, but it can easily be doubled or tripled depending on how many popsicle molds you have.

You Know What They Say About Cleanliness

Q: My best friend is coming to visit for the weekend and I’m terrified that I’m going to gluten them by mistake. They have been in the hospital before for celiac stuff, so I know they are really sensitive to cross contamination and me and my roommates are not exactly the cleanest people in the world. What can I do to get ready for their visit and to make sure I don’t poison them?
