When I was growing up, I used to be able to sleep in till noon or later on the weekends. One of my favorite things though was being woken up by my mom to "Pancakes will be ready soon". This simple phrase got me right out of bed, despite not being a morning person at all. To this day, I still love me some pancakes on a weekend morning.

I am so excited to announce that this year I will be attending the Gluten Free & Allergen Free Expo (GFAF) in Chicago as a part of the Official Blogger Team!
For those of you who are unfamiliar with the GFAF Expo, it is the largest gluten and allergy-free event that brings together all of your favorite brands, authors and bloggers all in one place.

You probably know the main things to look for when trying to figure out if something is gluten free. If not, check out this comprehensive list from Celiac.com: Unsafe Gluten-Free Food List. In my experience it's usually pretty easy to tell what has gluten in it. However, there's some things that you may not even consider as sources of gluten, and that's why I'm here to tell you what I've learned to look out for.

As long as I have known him (which has been over 8 years now), my husband always looks forward to Thanksgiving, because his grandma makes him one of his all-time favorites: banana pudding. Although I wasn't diagnosed with Celiac until a couple years after meeting Steven, for some reason I had never tried his grandma's banana pudding. The brilliant idea came to me to make it the other day so I could see for myself what got him so excited for it every year.

When I was first diagnosed with Celiac in 2008, there were not very many resources online like there are today. I was simply given a list of things I couldn't have, referred to a dietitian for one meeting, and left to my own devices. With my mom's help, I did quite well, despite the lack of info, and only had two gluten mishaps within my first year of being gluten-free. Now there is so much information out there that it is actually overwhelming sometimes, especially since not everything works for everyone.

Pinterest is always a good source of recipes (assuming you can get the links to work...), and sometimes when I see something circulating for awhile, I have to breakdown and try it. These cauliflower pizzas are one of those things. If you want a great way to sneak in some veggies, this is definitely the recipe for that. If you're looking for a traditional doughy or crispy pizza crust, these mini pizzas probably aren't going to satisfy you.
