Gluten Free Dessert Fanatic

I just plain love my veggies! When my daughter was younger, I used to try to get her to love her veggies as much as I did mine - which led to me making treats with veggies in them - and tricking her into eating them! Yup, you bet it worked! As my daughter developed a sensitivity to gluten, I started coming up with veggie filled, gluten free treats - and I use my blog as a way to keep track of my little creations.
