I recently had the opportunity to bake with one of Boise's local wheat/gluten-free vendors! Even better, is the fact that these delicious goods are also dairy-free, soy-free, nut-free and egg-free.
This time last year I had tried out their pumpkin bread and french bread at the local FAAN Allergy Walk. I couldn't believe that either item was gluten-free. They were both delightful! I couldn't wait to try something new.
As luck would have it, they were one of the supporters and donators for the Food Allergy Support class I presented at St. Al's Family Center for new mothers. Part of the focus of this class is offering options product options locally and nationally for families new to managing food allergies.
Well, I tried out another one of their items and they turned out to be the BEST, hands down, snickerdoodles I've ever made in this dairy-free, egg-free, nut-free household. Not a one left!
