About me

My name is Pippa but everyone calls me Squeak.  I'm gluten and lactose intolerant.  I don't worry too much about lactose.  We buy lactose free milk and ice cream and I can eat hard cheese, yogurt and a few other things.  For everything else, I take a lactase pill.

Now if only they would make a "glutase" pill so I could eat gluten!

But they don't.   So I have to be insanely careful about what I eat.  I can't eat anything that contains wheat, rye or barley.  And once you start reading labels, gluten is everywhere!

When I first found out I was gluten sensitive and discovered what I all had to give up, I was actually OK with it.  I was just so excited that I could feel better!  I would have given up anything to feel better!  It wasn't until later, when I found out that a lot of brands of soy sauce contain gluten and eating in most Chinese restaurants was off limits that I became really sad... and angry.  You see, I love Chinese food! Love it!  After a couple days of feeling sorry for myself and suffering from a massive craving for fried rice, I decided to take matters into my own hands and make it myself. It wasn't that good but I loved cooking it and I couldn't wait to try it again.  That was the beginning.  I was hooked on cooking!

I decided to start this blog as a way to keep track of my favorite recipes.  Some of the recipes are all mine.  Some I've found in cookbooks and on the internet, that I adapted to my licking.

And I figure, while I'm blogging, I can share some of the other things I like to do, too!
