Gluten-Free Gypsy Soda Bread
By the time I attended art school and launched into life on my own I had moved ten times and attended nine different schools in four different states.

And I wish I had more than just imaginings and intuition about this crazy gypsy heritage of mine. This stew of Ashkenazic Jewish, Russian and Scott-Irish. People used to packing up. Starting over. Making bread from a few scratch ingredients.
