The Ninth Gluten-free Day of Christmas

The 12 Days of Gluten Free Christmas: Day NINE

On the NINTH Gluten-Free Day of Christmas

my Health Coach gave to me . . .

. . . the gift of a family cookbook

When starting our gluten-free diet, there were many dinners and baked goods we just couldn’t eat!  We had to get the hang of cooking and especially gluten-free baking! (Think rock-solid – ha!)

Eventually, we did, and can now share it with all of you.

Keeping track of our recipes proved to be beneficial.  Each recipe was typed out to use again.  But, we continued to scratch out parts and make changes.

After a while, we couldn’t read some of the recipes! As we continued, we learned to keep track and make better notes on adjustments in the recipe (usually!).

Once we make a recipe, we write all over it

Did we like it?  How did we change it?  What did we do to alter it?  What worked?  This is very important to note.  Once you make something you love, you want to remember what you really put into it.

Try your best to keep good note changes on your recipes so you remember what you did change or adjust.

Our Family Cookbook

We started a Family Cookbook which was made into a beautiful Christmas present a few years back.  I started worrying that if anything happened to me, well . . . would my family be able to eat?

Since our recipes were hard to follow from all the cross-outs and changes, they were updated and put into a notebook to form our own Family Cook Book. My children came up with the name, putting all our names together – Jennifer, Alex, Freddie, and Sammy, to create JALFREDS.

After attending the Institute of Integrative Nutrition and learning more about food and nutrition, our recipes went through another change.  Yet, another update.  Every time we find a recipe we like, we write it up and add it to our Family Cookbook.

Start off by keeping your favorite recipes together.

Set aside a little time whenever you make something you really enjoy and write it out for future use.

As time goes on, keep adding more. You can share with others when you have a great dish or treat. Before you know it, you will have a fabulous collection of recipes to turn to each day.
