Gluten by any other name

If you are trying to go the gluten free route, here are a few ingredients you might want to be wary of.

Natural Flavor: This doesn't always mean that there is gluten in a product, but often monosodium glutamate (MSG) is hidden under "Natural Flavors". MSG doesn't always contain gluten, but you need to watch for it to see if it specifies.

Monosodium glutamate: As listed above. If it doesn't specify that the MSG used is gluten free, be wary.

Emulsifiers: These are used as an egg replacer and can contain gluten.

Lectins (lechithin): These are made from the hull of a grain. Some of the grains used are safe, but this is another ingredient to be careful with.

In the midst of the current egg recall, I find it a bit ludicrous that the state won't allow small farmers (who have an egg license) to sell their eggs at a farmers market. It has caused eggs to virtually disappear outside of the grocery store. And, for what? So we no longer have a whole lot of a choice when it comes to where our eggs come from? Now, we are stuck with the likes of Wright County Egg. Where is the freedom of choice there?

With it being a while since we last took a picture of our family, we thought it needed to be updated. So, here is how our family has changed and grown.;) Keep in mind that Mandi and Andrew aren't present, since they had to work. From left to : Josiah, Kathy, Gabriel, Glenn, Amanda, Luke, Chris, and Bethany.

We are excited that our official bakery website is being updated at the moment! Laura has some amazing ideas on ways to make our site more personal.

Market season has started in earnest! The early mornings are well worth the chance to sell wholesome goodies and see good friends again. I am always happy to have a bit of a break when Winter comes around (there is something to be said for having a free Saturday once in a blue moon!), but then I am thrilled when market season starts up again in the Spring. Somehow, the Winter always lasts to long for me.:)
