My name is William Allen. I have cooked on and off for the last 8 years. This would have been more constant, except I hate cooking for myself. I had never heard of gluten until about two or three years ago when I started dating a girl with celiac disease. Since then she has become my wife, and I have someone to cook for on a regular basis. While I may not be an officially trained chef, I do come up with some pretty tasty meals, some I’ve even had the gluten eating neighbors ask me to cook again. Orange chicken that the husband mistakenly thought was takeout.

Currently I am working on a gluten free cookbook. My goal is to have 50 recipes for it by christmas. A goal to keep me on track, and will give me something to give as a gift to relatives that can’t eat wheat. I am planning on putting all the recipes I post here in some form or another in the cookbook, though they might get tweaked a little between now and then.

  1. Fellow gluten free blogger,

    I’m staring a carnival blog as a one-stop shopping place for gluten free information. A blog carnival is like a magazine of articles that gets published on a schedule. Every 3 months (I hope it catches on so that we can do this more often – at least monthly), bloggers submit an article related to the GF lifestyle from their blog. The submission will be combined with all others onto 1 carnival page, which will include links to each participant’s article on their own blog (so you retain the rights to the post, and your trademarks stay intact). We can all take turns being the host blogger (if you are interested in hosting, let me know!). We hope that we can all learn from each other and introduce our readers to other gluten free sites out there.
    If you’d like to see a sample carnival, check out http://allergickid.blogspot.com/2009/06/living-with-food-allergies-blog.html.

    Joining the community of contributors is a great way to get more readers to your blog. It’s easy to do. Just follow the below link and fill in the quick form linking one of your best blog posts to the carnival page. Topic areas will include recipes, tips, research, advice/support, etc. Your post will be posted along with contributions from other GF bloggers.

    The deadline for the next carnival is July 25, 2009. Be sure to let your readers know about the first carnival. It’ll be posted on August 1st at http://thefoodallergycoach.blogspot.com/.

    Looking forward to reading your post,
