My name is Cassandra and I’ve been gluten-free for over eight years. Even though I am the only Celiac in the family, my home is completely gluten-free, to keep me safe and us all sane. I love experimenting in the kitchen with my two boys – Braden and Carter, and my little girl – Corice.

I am the book sales chairman of my local support group, North Texas GIG. We hosted the annual GIG Education Conference, June 6-7, 2008. We had a great time.

Music is my first love (though it now lies behind my family).   I love to sing solos at church (though it is still nerve-wracking) and be a part of the church choir.  At times, I teach piano lessons, but not at present.

As of summer 2010, I do web design and whatever else comes along with it.  I am also in graduate school, which basically takes up the majority of my life.  🙂  I am a teaching fellow, currently teaching Pilates, Aerobic Dance, and Physical Activity for Health-Related Fitness.

Braden is my little man. And by little, I mean just a few inches shorter than me.  We found out at the beginning  of the summer of 2012 that Braden is allergic to wheat, corn, soy, sesame, and peanuts.  Before, he was a help in the kitchen.  Now, he is learning to master the kitchen.

Carter is my cute little imp.  He makes all of life interesting for us.  I am rarely allowed to bake without Carter joining me.

I finally got my little girl in September 2008.  Her name is Corice, and she is absolutely precious.  She is now a big girl, complete with princess panties and an attitude.  If I know what’s good for me, I won’t leave her out of a baking session.

The newest member of our family is my husband Martin.  He is most supportive of both myself and Braden.    I’m pretty sure he thinks I’m the best cook ever, and I think he’s an awesome dishwasher.  🙂

I sincerely hope you find something to delight your senses on my blog. Enjoy!
