Wendy of Celiacs in the House: Adopt a Gluten-Free Blogger

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.

Adopt a Gluten-Free Blogger is hosted by Sea of Book of Yum, and I’m sure she’ll be posting a round up soon!


About Cheryl Harris

Life played a funny trick on me. I've studied nutrition for years, and much to my surprise, found out that I could manage many of my health issues via diet. I've been GF for years, and I've got a bunch of allergies and sensitivities. But it definitely doesn't keep me from cooking, baking and enjoying my food. Thanks for stopping by.

  1. Glad you liked that compote. It was a hit at our house which surprised me. I don’t usually make things like that, but I had those ripe pears to use up. Those raw almond flour based cookie balls are a super way to use up odds and ends from the baking cupboard like dried fruit, nuts and chocolate chips too.
