Today Mom (Cynthia) and I baked a load of gluten-free goodies. I decided that I needed to photo-document this extravaganza, as this gluten-free-ness marks the first day of the rest of my life. Annnnd... I was sure that there would be some baking mis-adventures (which there were) and I didn't want to miss a chance at catching them on film.
Note: Please excuse the crappiness of how I look.
Here I am, stirring up a non-glutenous flour combination. Note the extensive amount of flour on my clothes.
Mmmm, xanthan gum.
My first ever gluten-free baking creation! Corn bread. (It was delicious, in case you're wondering.)
A mix of crazy celiac-friendly flours.

Needless to say, this different type of baking has been quite adventurous. Apart from the gross sunken bread, we made delicious and successful brownies, corn bread and chocolate chip cookies. I am feeling quite good about this new way of life.
After baking for awhile I lay down in the living room for a nap. Mom was in the next room finishing up on the baking. She's great. Simply marvelous. A very entertaining person. She had a lengthy one-sided conversation with the cat about why one needs to grease cookie sheets before baking.
