    May you and your family have an enjoyable and peaceful holiday. Thank you for sharing your knowledge, recipes and thoughts. You have been my guiding light through the scary process of learning to cook and eat in a whole new way due to many food allergies. I look forward to each new recipe posting and the beautiful photos that go with them. Your offerings are valued beyond words.

    Happy Holidays!

    Lovely picture...

    Also, I want to share a comment from one of my co-workers who made the Two Artists Chili for an event and was a huge success. (you might remember I won 3rd place with the recipe this past September at a chili cook off!!!). She's made it again with great success. She said she's also made an apple cake recipe from your site and it was DELICIOUS! She's hooked on your site!!

    Yeah for more fans!!

    Thank You for your helpful website... Jackson Wyoming

    Merry Christmas to you and your family! My daughter accepted to two Culinary Colleges: History of medical bouts finally discovered our conditions due to gluten intolerance! She is going to pursue this avenue of research during her college studies. Thank you for being an inspiration to an unimaginable number of people who benefit from your creativity talent and wit!

    Happy Winter Solstice to you Karina and your family. I too love the unusual and beautiful photo - it has a spiritual appeal. Thank you too for the wonderful recipes and your personal blogspot. I feel as if I know you as a friend. We are enjoying the Dark Chocolate Brownies - they are a luscious confection and each deserves its golden foil container. I was so happy that my ill friend who is a chocoholic could enjoy one. She's unable to eat almost anything but she was able to eat and enjoy one of these gems. May 2010 be another gluten-free year of discovery and fine food.

  15. Finally!! I love it when the days finally start to get longer again. So odd that it happens when the actual season of winter starts! Stunning photo!
