Thank you all so much for filling out my the 2016 Reader Survey. We had nearly 500 responses which is more than I expected. I’m so grateful for my online family and the community we have.
I want this to be a helpful part of the internet for all of my readers. Your feedback is essential.
After looking through all of your responses and common threads, I decided to make three goals for my readers – three things that I want you to be able to accomplish by the end of this year. Three things that I will focus on teaching in 2017.
I used to be a teacher, and while writing lesson plans I always kept in mine what I wanted my kids to be able to do independently. So here are my objectives, goals, and hopes for all of my readers this year.
1. Make Any Recipe Gluten-Free
Have you ever come across a recipe that looks so good, only to discover it isn’t gluten-free? Happens all the time, right? I want to give you the tools and skills to be able to make the necessary changes for the recipe to work for you. I have been cooking gluten and refined sugar-free for over 10 years now, and I have lots of experience with great substitutions – I want to share that knowledge with you! To start, here are my favorite flour blends.
2. Make a Great Loaf of Bread
Here’s the thing- great is really subjective! Some people want a soft loaf, some people want sourdough, other want a nice hearty bread. Whatever type of bread you want, I want you to be able to make. We are going to explore the different ways of making gluten-free breads, the challenges, and of course the flour blends. I am also thinking about maybe offering a class – would anyone be interested?
3. Have a List of Easy Recipes
We all need more time- and one way to get it, is to stop asking yourself what is for dinner! By having a list of go to meals that you and your family love (with ingredients you always keep in your pantry!), you will be able to cross that item off your list! You guys asked for more slow cooker recipes- so I rounded up ten easy ones here!
Three goals doesn’t sound like too many, but that will be plenty to fill up my calendar for the year! We have lots to learn!
