  1. Hey Katie,

    I added myself as a follower and I'm commenting... but I don't have a facebook page so I can't like yours! Is there something else I could do instead to make up for it??

    As for the thing I would miss the most... I can't think of a specific dish, but I think I would miss the convenience of eating whatever without having the think about it (but that's probably not very good for me!). I don't know if it's what I would miss the MOST, but I think I wold probably miss Dill & Sea Salt Triscuits. haha!

    1. Janette, you're on my Instagram! That counts in my book! :)

      Anyone else who is in the same boat as Janette -- just complete the 2 others OR add yourself to my Instagram (MrsHartsfield) + you'll still be entered for a chance to win! :)

  2. I miss being able to go out to any restaurant I want! :)

  3. Hey Katie,

    I am not on a Gluten Free diet, but my son has been for years, and my husband just went Gluten Free a month or so ago. I miss baking whole wheat bread. It used to make my whole house smell so good, and I loved it warm from the oven with butter. Now, there doesn't any point to investing the energy into making it for just us Gluten-y folk anymore.

    I have tried the muffins from this brand, and they are THE BEST GF muffins I have ever had! I wonder what the other things are like...I haven't seen them in my local store, just the muffin mix.

  4. Katie,

    So i dont just have ONE dish, as you know lol. But, i miss all of the 'sweets' like cookies, cake, brownies, cookie dough :P aha I guess thats all ill put for now! Talk to you soon!


  5. I have liked your fb page and I have signed up as a follower as well. The thing that I miss the most is crispy creme donuts. It is so hard watching my children eat them on special occasions like birthdays. What is really hard and sad is that I share my birthday with one of my boys. Last year on our birthday, I sat there and watched him and the others eat crispy creme donuts and I could not. Very hard to do. :(

    1. Kris - I'm going to make it my mission to come up with some good doughnuts for us! I've been eyeing a few recipes for quite some time now + I know I can adapt this for us! Give me a few days! I'll get your that recipe + I'll feature it! :)

      Remember -- it's all about adapting! We might not be able to go grab it at the Krispe Kreme's down the road, but we sure can whip up ourselves a few dozen at home + keep them around! (Did I just type dozen? I guess that shows how much I miss them too!)

      Stay tuned + hang tight!

  6. Hi Katie,
    I am follower GinPN on your instagram and have completed your three requests to enter. I have been GF for 15 years mow. Diagnosed with Celiac before most people knew what it was. The thing I really miss most it not having Onion Rings with my GF veggie burger. A lite Tempura batter would be just the ticket to making these when the craving arises. Thanks for your blog and sharing Chloe with us.
