Shameless Plug: Irresistibly Gluten Free

Ahhh... high school. Wouldn't go back even if someone said there was a million bucks in it for me. Not a chance. And I had a pretty darn good high school experience, all told... but go back? No. As in Hell No.

Fortunately, I made it through grades 10, 11 and 12 relatively unscathed and came out the other side with some amazing memories and some even more amazing friends. But when I left the rolling hills of Hillcrest High School in Midvale, Utah.... that was it. Sayonara suckahs... on to bigger and better. Pretty much never looked back.

And then along came this thing called Facebook. If you're of my generation or older, you know the phenomenon... suddenly people from the wayback machine start popping up with friend requests, and (at least in my case), you find that you're delighted to reconnect with them. Or at least most of them. Enter my long-lost friend Rob. Rob, our hilariously funny senior class president, one of the cool kids, has been my friend on Facebook for years now. We even caught up in person briefly a year ago at a class reunion - so fun. He's good people, and has grown up to be a really great guy. He's the father of six kids (yep - six!), and wouldn't you know it - three of those six kids have Celiac's disease. That means running a household full of young children on a gluten free diet. Tough. So what's a family to do? Well, Rob's wife, Christina, took matters of health into her own hands. Over the years, she developed tasty, kid-friendly gluten free recipes that kept their family healthy, while still being able to indulge in graham cracker and pizza cravings. After 15 years of gluten free cooking, she decided to take the plunge and share her wealth of knowledge by writing a cookbook. And her perfect partner in crime: husband Rob, who just so happens to be a talented graphic designer.

So I present to you "Irresistibly Gluten Free" - their labor of love. If gluten free cooking is part of your lifestyle, I suggest you pick up a copy. Like right now. You can get it on Amazon, right here: Irresistibly Gluten Free. And of course, you can visit the website to learn more:
