Last year, I discovered I had a wheat allergy. Foods I once loved to eat are left to be purely food fantasies. I dream of lightly toasted sourdough bread with melty butter, corkscrews of al dente pasta, warm fluffy tortillas, crisp ice cream cones and syrupy blueberry pancakes...so many things on the "No-No" list.

But, there is hope! With much internet surfing and researching I have found that I can substitute rice, potato and tapioca flours for enriched white flour to re-create almost anything. My favorite snowy day activity has quickly turned into wheat-free baking! I was lucky to find a particularly fantastic recipe on a lovely blog, Canelle et Vanille. Today, I made Wheat-Free Brioche.
Get out the jam, here I come!
