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.

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.

Announcing new cooking video series, My First Thanksgiving Dinner, and I Made it Myself

Do you fear Thanksgiving dinner? For so many reasons.

  1. The turkey is big and scary, it’s hard to wrestle with, and likely to be dry.
  2. The stuffing will be glutinous.
  3. Canned cranberry sauce is sweetened with high fructose corn syrup. And the gelatinous wiggle is frightening.
  4. Mashed potatoes come out of a box. I want real ones.
  5. The green bean casserole always looks tired. Couldn’t we try a new veggie?
  6. And please, I want dessert. Gluten free and dairy free, please.
