Accepting the challenges in creating a gluten free household

Good information!

I am determined to get back here this month to add a number of my favorite recipes that have worked well for me over the last few months.  But today I came across this site when I was looking for information on the various flours, and although it wasn’t exactly what I was looking for, it contained information for anyone wanting to know more about how gluten works, and how to deal with non-gluten flours.  Very useful, and in order to bookmark it so I can find it again, here is the link:

Wings Soy Sauce

We enjoy being able to get gluten free food in a variety of restaurants.  Recently we were at Wok Box, where, if you let them know your food must be gluten free, they will cook it in a freshly cleaned wok.  (Don’t assume your food will be gluten free if you just order off the gluten free menu, without specifying that yours must be gluten free.  We made that mistake only once… the toppings they throw on for a garnish are NOT gluten free, and my husbands meal had to be redone.) But they have these little packages of soy sauce, and we would have loved to have some, but soy sauce is often suspect.  The soy sauce was Wings brand, so I sent them an email.  They answered very quickly and included the following information, along with a document that declares Wings Soy Sauce to be gluten free.  That was good news for us!
