Jenny’s Gluten Free Banana Bread

Okay. Yet another week has passed and I’ve been busy in the kitchen when I can spare a moment. This recipe is also near and dear to my heart. It comes from my beautiful Mom as well. She was definitely an amazing baker growing up and so we had lots of treats to choose from. Of course it wasn’t gluten free, but not to worry I’ve got that covered. Since being on this allergen free journey, I’ve had the opportunity to help or convince … whatever you want to call it, some family near and dear to me to go gluten free. One of those people is my Mom. You see, my Mom also suffers from a few of the ailments I did before I went gluten free. Chronic diarrhea (sorry to share that with the world Mom … forgive me?), bloating, gas pains, hypothyriodism, and high cholesterol … just to name a few. So, in the last 6 weeks or so, she’s finally made the plunge to be gluten free as well. She tells me she hasn’t cheated and I’m so proud of her for that. It’s a hard road, and if you’re doing it, you know just how hard it can be. She says she feels better and that her tummy problems seem to be disappearing. So, I keep encouraging her to stick with it to see how she feels in the long run. I’ve also managed to convince both of my siblings, both brothers to give it a shot as well. They are both stubborn people, so this was a hard one to accomplish. 🙂 Yes, if you’re both reading this, you are stubborn! I am so very happy that they are atleast giving this gluten free life a shot. For me, being gluten free has been the best decision I’ve ever made. Continue reading “Jenny’s Gluten Free Banana Bread”

Gluten Free Bread

So, it’s taken me a while, but finally I’m here. I’ve had a busy week with kids, but managed to squeeze in a day of bread baking. My kids love this bread and frankly, so do I. It’s much tastier and oh, so much yummier than that rock hard  gluten free bread that you buy at the grocery store. In the past couple of years I’ve tried almost every store bought bread out there and have not found one that I actually like. And, I’ve baked more loaves than I can count at home. Mostly because I believe my kids have a slight addiction to this bread. They love to help out with making it and just can’t wait to get their hands on a slice after it comes out of the oven.  This recipe is straight forward and doesn’t require a lot of babysitting like other gluten free breads I’ve tried. And, just to be clear, it’s completely dairy free, soy free and of course, gluten free! So, because this is my first recipe post on the blog, I thought it was appropriate to post this bread recipe. I know that when I first went gluten free, the thing I missed the most was bread. So here it is … Continue reading “Gluten Free Bread”
