Greetings and salutations!
HI! My name is Pippa but everyone calls me Squeak. Welcome to my blog! I decided to start this as a way to keep track of my favorite recipes. You see, I'm gluten and lactose intolerant and I have to be crazy careful about what I eat. I don't worry too much about lactose, I can eat hard cheese and yogurt and they make a pill if I want to eat ice cream or anything else. But gluten is a whole nother story! I can't have anything made with wheat, rye or barley and sometimes it seems like those things are in everything! Eating in a restaurant or with my friends is really tough. I have to ask lots of questions and read lots of labels. Sometimes it's just easier to say, "No thank you" because if I accidentally eat something with gluten, even a tiny bit, it makes me sick and sometimes I feel sick for days. Yeah, it pretty much stinks!
So I'm learning to cook because if I cook it myself, I can eat anything I want! Sometimes my friends stop by and we cook together. We have lots of fun and they are learning what I can and can't eat and I'm learning what they eat and don't eat. Anyway, that's enough rambling for today. Talk to you soon!
