Gluten Free

For the most part I have been gluten free since last summer. I thought I would give it a try and ended up loving the way I felt. The Talented Gallery Director surprised me with a (monogrammed) Gluten Free, Smith Island Cake after dinner at The Greenbrier.  
 
It was the best cake I have ever eaten. Not only did it taste unbelievable but it meant so much that she had been so thoughtful...Smith Island Cake is no easy feat in the kitchen.

The dinner included all of my favorite foods, like tomato mozzarella. Lawyer Liz made some delicious GF Maryland Crab Cakes.  
 
Special thanks to all the girls for planning such a wonderful meal...my mouth is still watering! xx

What a thoughtful friend! I have been baking gluten free for my daughter for over eight years and it can be tricky at times. So happy to hear you enjoyed your cake!

I have to admit, getting a cottage is probably a fun way to save some money while at the Greenbrier! When my family goes they are often too small for our entourage and one time my Grandfather almost booked the Presidential suite just so we could all stay together - insane, right? I hope you will share cottage pics at some point - I bet the balcony/porches are so pretty this time of year looking out onto the grounds!

I love Smith Island Cake, and your friends are so great to have had one!

Do you have Celiac like me or just doing gluten free to be healthy?
