    I made gluten free English Muffins today.  I was inspired by the glutenfreegirlblogspot that I like to visit ever since I read the book, Gluten Free Girl.  Really, my first venture into using yeast.  Two risings but luckily no kneading. In the past when I would see the word “risings” I would just skip the recipe.  Now, however, deprived of decent bread choices, I decided to venture into English Muffin making.  The recipe wasn't too difficult but it was time consuming.  Thankfully, my husband and son both really liked the muffins.  After all I put into it, I would have been disappointed if they turned out bad or “tasted okay for gluten free.” 
    The English Muffins are symbolic for me in that a couple of years ago despite going gluten free I couldn't really really do this type of cooking.  I was so stressed and worn out with helping my husband get better and surviving day to day life that I had no room for enjoyment of new things. 


    The Gluten Free Girl website is beautiful….makes me want to try it.  I wouldn't know where to start with getting some of those products. like the “gum”.  I love to cook, but yeast rising is something I've always stayed away from too. 

    You have to celebrate being able to enjoy the small things in life….how wonderful!


    Hi Nancy,

    I get most of these things at Henry's, Whole Foods and Baron's.

    I'm also making a Montina bread in the bread maker about twice a week.  It was getting expensive so now I'm research where to get everything in for less.  I  make up batches of the dry ingredients ready to put in the breadmaker.  (Teenage boys really eat and it's hard to afford a gluten free teenage boy!).

    I did find a site yesterday that carries Xanthan gum a common binder in gluten free breads for a very good price.  http://www.barryfarm.com/thickeners.htm

     Their price is at least 1/2 if not more than what I am paying in the store.
