  1. Hi Angela,

    I couldn’t find a direct email for you. I wanted to thank you so much for your kind words. They really mean a lot, and you have completely made my day.

  2. Angela-

  3. Hi Angela, I was just referred to your website from Lakewinds Minnetonka…Leslie. I have a 3 year old son that I think may be gluten intolerant. He looks very healthy, not malnourished. However about 3 months ago he started with the stomach pains and constipation. he has also been very irritable and moody. The doctors have had him on Miralx for a long time….but it doesn’t work for him. So enemas clean him out but the pains are still there. I’m planning on putting him on a gluten-free diet to see if this is the root cause of his symptoms. Any advice? Thanks. Barbara

    • I think the easiest way to start is to stick with really simple veggies & fruit, meat (protein) meals, especially when you don’t know what the culprit is. Kind of an elimination diet… Eat simple whole foods until the problems go way, then add one thing at a time that you eliminated, wait a couple days to see if any problems return, then add in another thing, and so on. If the problems come back with a food, then you know the culprit. Fortunately, there are a lot of kid friendly allergen free foods available now. Good luck!

  4. Hi Angela. I just found your web-site and I am SO excited. I am 6 months gluten and dairy free… and still struggling with learning and re-organizing my life. I am looking forward to spending more time on your site. I saw the list of restaurants in Providence and that made my day. I struggle a lot around here during our dinner outings. Any general guidance or suggestions would be appreciated. Also, any comprehensive books or web-sites to help with shopping or going out to dinner would be excellent. Thanks so much…

    • Thanks for stopping by my blog! I have some links to sites on the right that I find really helpful. I am hoping to have some book and shopping site reviews soon within the next couple of months that I hope you will find helpful.

      It does take a little re-organization, but then before you know it, you will have it figured out! I hope you find some good things to eat here and some information to make it all easier.

  5. I was recently at your baking class and love the Noah’s Rolls. When I TRIED making the french bread the dough was so stiff I couldn’t even finish mixing it. Any suggestions? Thanks!

    • The biggest thing to check is to be sure your measurements are correct for your dry and wet ingredients. Also, you will want to use a stand mixer for mixing as the gluten free doughs are so heavy and wet. You could increase the liquid slightly (only 1 Tablespoon at a time) until you have a workable dough. sometimes the air is much dryer (or wetter) from one time to the next when you make a recipe and you may need to adjust the liquid slightly in a recipe. I hope that helps. Let me know is you have any more questions and I will see what we can figure out together!

  6. Hi Angela,

    Just a huge thanks for your comments on my blog. Love all your recipes and blog. Take Care, chat soon

  7. Hi Angela!

    It’s me Jessie from Juut Salon! Your website is great! I am going to have to find a recipe here and make it for my family. I was telling you about my son who might having food allergies and with all the testing everything came back “normal” which I am very happy about. Thanks for sharing your website with me!


  8. Angela, God Bless you! Your website a divine gift. How can I ever thank you for documenting your daily inspirations. The school lunch pictures are amazing. Especially for a visual learner like me. We have been going through the food allergy life for 3 years with my daughter who is allergic to peanuts, tree nuts, dairy, eggs, and soy. She was allergic to citrus, tomatoes, and strawberries and outgrew them. Talk about rocking my world. My son was 4 at the time and struggling with asthma. We found out he was allergic to dairy and wheat. So he is in school and I have been sending his lunch everyday since then.

    • You are so sweet! Thank you so much! I am so glad that you are finding some helpful things here. I sometimes wonder, so thanks for letting me know. :o)

      Wow, so many things… I bet dinner time can seem tricky at your house, but I think in the long run our allergies expands our choices as we try things we may never have tasted. The experimenting can be fun! I will put some more lunch ideas up when I have another collection of them – I am thinking fall/holiday themed fun maybe… thanks for the feedback!

  9. Hello Angela,

    I am so excited to have found your site! I am lactose intolerant and allergic to milk protein, so I’ve been trying to avoid dairy since the beginning of this year. I miss things like yogurt and cheese, and when I did a Google search for “how to make coconut yogurt,” your site was the first one to pop up! I’m also going to try making the coconut cream cheese…mmm! That will be such a treat. 🙂

    Keep up the great work, and I will definitely be a regular visitor to your blog!


  10. where do u get the coconut yogurt starter???

  11. Angela-
    This is a great blog. I presented at the summit last year at the Biltmore in Providence. did you make it to the summit this year??

    • Thanks! Your presentation last year was WONDERFUL!

      I did get to the summit this year. I went to the Colorado one. With it split up, I keep feeling like I missed out on the other presenters in New York. Did you go at all? I really need to get my notes together and do a recap of the summit for the blog…

  12. Hi Angela. I am a friend of your father-in-law, Tim Litzinger so came across your site on his Facebook page. I am very glad to see a website like this as I have fibromyalgia and they think a lot of us are glutin and yeast intolerant. I am also lactose intolerant so finding recipes that I can have is very hard. I’ll become of fan of your Facebook for sure. Hope you have a great day!

  13. Thanks Angela for the gluten free lefsa recipe. My son and his friends from college met for 4 years at our home and made lefsa before their Christmas break. The group graduated a couple years ago. Tonight, I received a call from one of the young men, who has been diagnosed with a gluten allergy. He misses his lefsa and he wondered if I knew how to make it without the wheat flour. In my google search, I find you and your recipe. He is also allergic to eggs, but it looks like what you have put together might work. Thanks so much!
