    Hi Pat,

    I came across your website when doing some research on gluten free restaurants in San Antonio and I wanted to reach out to you in regards to a study we are doing for Celiac Disease. I am going to attach the website with the brochure for you to check out and if you know anyone who may qualify or be interested, they can be compensated for their time and trouble!

    Thank you!

    I just got told I have one gluten gene and one celiac. After reading your post above, I can relate to the social worries of not being able to enjoy dinner out with my friends, PLUS I’m already a vegetarian! So…I am starting my no gluten journey, this coming from someone who grew-up with our family owning a bakery for 41 yrs! I’m 90% sure my dad was gluten intolerent. On our cookbook website their is one sample recipe for a gluten free Chocolatissimo Cake Also, after my dad passed away, my niece and nephew have continued a business he helped them start by selling Florentines which are gluten free and egg free, but do have cream Near where I live in San Francisco Bay Area there is supposed to be a gluten free store, but I haven’t been there yet. Thanks for all the great links. I’ll make sure to explore them.
    Be well,

      I’m so glad you visited! Also, that you’re exploring the ways to go gluten-free. The health benefits, both near and long term, are well worth it. With a little imagination, it’s possible to continue sharing many wonderful experiences with friends and family — maybe not exactly as before, but still enjoyable.

      There is a wealth of information available, both gluten-free and vegetarian. That makes it so much easier than it was even 10 years ago when I went gluten-free. Also now, there is no need to feel alone as you look into it. While people on a gluten-free diet may seem rather rare (at this point in time) among my acquaintances, I have found a large, lively community of helpful bloggers online who are ready to answer just about any question I might have.

      That Chocolatissimo Cake sounds luscious! What an amazing person your father must have been to have overcome those obstacles and built a family and a successful business.

      Thank you so much for sharing. I hope you’ll check back here again soon.
