It's here! Please give a warm welcome to A Year to Eat Freely: 2011 Allergy-Friendly Recipe Calendar.  It's a 12-month calendar packed with 17 allergy-friendly, gluten-free recipes, and was written, photographed, and designed by yours truly with lots of love.

Here's a few glimpses of it...

I became a fan of your facebook page. Please enter me in the drawing for your calendar.
I have celiac disease and an unusual food allergy... Peppers, in any form, vegetable or spice, hot or mild, from chilis to pimentos, black pepper, white, red, even paprika (which is used to color many foods) will set off a reaction. This makes it very hard to use any pre-made foods safely as pepper is frequently included in the vague description "spice" so the majority of my foods are homemade. I enjoy collecting information and recipes from sites like yours. It helps add variety to my life.
Thank you
