I’ve been involved with the online business networking group, Mom Masterminds for some time.  One of the things that they do is teach others successful business practices in using blogging as a tool to increase website traffic.  In some cases, this is done using interns on already established websites.  How does this relate to Celiac and eating gluten free?  I’m glad you asked!

One of the websites that is involved in this process is Family Foodies and the intern on this project, Brenda Wilkey, will be blogging about gluten-free living for the next several weeks!  She’s already posted some great items that you should check out!  Here are a few recent links:

Great job, Brenda!  Keep up the fantastic work!

PREP TIME 20 Min
COOK TIME 15 Min
READY IN 35 Min
SERVINGS & SCALING
Original recipe yield: 10 pancakes

INGREDIENTS
1 cup rice flour
3 tablespoons tapioca flour
1/3 cup potato starch
4 tablespoons dry buttermilk powder
1 packet sugar substitute
1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon xanthan gum
2 eggs
3 tablespoons canola oil
2 cups water

DIRECTIONS

  1. In a bowl, mix or sift together the rice flour, tapioca flour, potato starch, dry buttermilk powder, sugar substitute, baking powder, baking soda, salt, and xanthan gum. Stir in eggs, water, and oil until well blended and few lumps remain.
  2. Heat a large, well-oiled skillet or griddle over medium high heat. Spoon batter onto skillet and cook until bubbles begin to form. Flip, and continue cooking until golden brown on bottom. Serve immediately with condiments of your choice.

I’ll also add the Daily GF Recipe RSS Feed to our website (on the Resource page), so it will be easy for everyone to find.
