Videos now online.

I have finally gotten around to putting some of Linda’s cooking videos online.  Under the tab “Your Pantry” you will find 2 series of instructional videos. 

Your Pantry

The first series is “After School Snacks”.  It consists of 5 new videos for making great gluten free after school snacks.

The second series is called “Gluten Free Whole Grain Quick Breads”.  It also has 5 different videos showing you how to make great whole grain quick breads that are all gluten free.

It always was Linda’s intent to have them available and be shared.

Wonder Tortilla!

Here is a recipe from one of my readers (Wenchypoo) that I thought should be shared.  Give it a try and post your results.


I finally did it–turned your Wonder Bun idea into a Wonder Tortilla!
Here’s the recipe (done in a 1000W microwave with Corelle dinner plate)
Makes 1 taco or fajita-sized tortilla (still working on the big boy):

1T. chia meal
1T. flax meal
2 T. almond meal
2 t. tapioca starch
1 T. olive oil (do not use coconut oil or lard)
1 egg white (no yolk–the bottom of the tortilla becomes messy)
1T. water
1/2 t. baking powder
1/2 t. cocoa powder (optional–for color only)
A total of 1 t. of spices/herbs of choice

    ~~Big “T” means tablespoon, and little “t” means teaspoon~~

    Combine flours and powders in a cereal bowl.  Stir to combine, then set aside.  In a separate small bowl, add egg white, olive oil, and water, and mix with mixer until egg white is bubbly, but not to the foam stage–we don’t want meringue here!

    Add egg white mixture to the flour mixture, and stir well to combine, making sure to get the unmixed batter off spoon and into bowl.

    ~~Greasing plate NOT necessary, since there’s oil in the recipe~~

    Pour batter into center of microwave-safe salad or dinner-sized plate, and tip the plate around until batter comes to within 1″ of rim (the batter will creep back to the center of the plate–don’t worry).  Microwave on high for 60 seconds, then remove plate to cooling rack to finish cooking.  After about a minute or two, gently remove the tortilla by using a butter knife to slowly peel up the edges all around the plate, then sliding the knife gently under the tortilla slowly toward the center.  When tortilla is completely free of plate, remove it and return it to the cooling rack bottom-side up to finish completely cooling.

    This tortilla is flexible enough to fold and roll, and also freezes well–if making a stack of them, let cool completely, then place in a zippy bag or other freezer-safe container with paper between the layers (parchment or wax) so they don’t freeze together.

    To defrost, remove from freezer and place on a plate, microwaving one at a time on high for 30 seconds.  These regain flexibility upon defrosting.

    Now you can have a personal taco, fajita, or enchilada that’s low-carb, gluten-free, and Paleo (add cheese for Primal).

The End

Gluten Free Kitchen Therapy began as a spin-off of our personal chef business, Dine In!, because a client was diagnosed with celiac disease.  Along with that Linda did speaking engagements to spread her knowledge of gluten-free, and recipe testing to make gluten-free better tasting and better for you.    We did cooking demonstrations to show people how to make gluten-free good for you and tasty.  She invested time and energy to get local restaurants to offer gluten-free items on their menus AND to have the knowledge and policies in place to avoid cross contamination.


Eventually became our main website.   In addition to the website design, I learned to use and program WordPress, and thus Linda’s blog was born (   We spent many hours video taping and editing cooking demonstrations that were offered on this site.   There was a lot of effort in making great photos of the dishes, as she always told me, we eat with our eyes first.  But mainly it was Linda’s great writing that made this site come to life.   Her dietetic training and personal chef experience added creditability to her content, but it was her writing style and quest for knowledge that got people to return again and again to her blog.  The videos and speaking engagements never became financially lucrative, but they where fun along the way.

I wish to thank all her blog readers for their many years of subscribing, for it was you who kept Linda going with the blog.   She really enjoyed coming up with the next posting even when time and energy were not abundant.    Linda was very disappointed when the cancer treatments no longer allowed her to think or write to the standards that she had set for herself.   “Chemo Brain” is a real problem.

And please read Linda’s account of her journey with cancer at

Thus we come to the end of Linda’s blog.

 Thank you all.
