  1. My husband has requested a GF hamburger helper, so I was excited to see this recipe. I see that you make other recipes with gluten on this blog, though, so what was your reason for going GF with this?

  2. OH, well thank you! I actually read a book about the health benefits of going GF. There are so many things associated to gluten intolerance. I am glad to post these for you and more are to come! Please feel free to share my blog with others! Again thanks so much for your comment.
