I can’t believe I’ve never adopted Wendy of Celiacs in the House. Wendy is such a wonderful Celiac advocate and a perfect example of the power of a passionate advocate! I was fortunate to get to know her a bit during her 30 days to 50 challenge, and I’m enjoying her new projects, in the form of her In My Gluten Free Kitchen series (hop on over!) and ongoing resources on eating safely in college.
Then why oh why haven’t I adopted her sooner? It’s hard to find recipes that fit the quirks of my dietary restrictions. But oh my, I found a winner. I absolutely adore her Ginger Pear Compote. It’s just like apple pie filling, just pear, and somehow better. Loved the ginger, but I think I’d make it without, too. I loved it warm, but found that it was even better cold. My MIL has a pear tree. When we see her I end up with pear overload. Now I have something to use up all those goodies!
It’s funny, the more years I’m gluten-free, the more I appreciate the simple recipes and flavor combinations. I’ve actually come to prefer them and somehow they taste better to me.
I’ve also got her Almost Raw Cranberry Chocolate Chip balls bookmarked for future kitchen experimentation.
