Holiday Baking Made Simple with GF Goodies!
At our November meeting, gfGoodies owner, Amy Middleton led us through some easy holiday recipes, which feature her gfGoodies mixes. We tasted delicious, moist scones, shortbread, and cookies--all made with gfGoodies mixes. Amy has recipes for traditional holiday favorites like pumpkin pie and cornbread stuffing on her website (insert link). You can find gfGoodies at most Lunds, Byerlys, or Lakewinds Coops, or you may also order online. Make holiday baking more delicious and error free this year by using these great gluten free blends!

"The Celiac Center has been a blessing to me and my family. It's a wonderful resource where I've been able to get real-life, practical help from those who have been in my shoes and know what I'm going through. It means a lot to know I have a group that I can reach out to when I need it. I'm glad my family and I don't have to take this journey alone."
