  1. Oh boy! I’m so happy I bumped into this site! I want to cry!!! I’m new to gluten free and am trying new flour mixes! I have more bread in the “bin” and none on the table!!!
    Hold thumbs! I’m going to try another, using your flour mix suggestions!


    • I’m so glad you find my blog useful Louise! Thank you so much for “visiting” and I wish you all the best in your baking 🙂 Feel free to pop by again and share any good tips and tricks you come up with!



  2. Hi. I’m from Slovenia, small country in Europe and so glad to find your blog. My mum has gluten intolerance and she is making her own bread with corn flour and with gf flour mix that you can buy in store, but it always comes out very dry. Now that i found your site i’m going to surprise her and make her a bread, just to show her that can be done, because she lost will for baking. Thank you soooo much !


    • Hi Marika,

      Thank you for stopping by! I am so glad you like the blog, and I really hope that the flour mixes will work for you. If you need any baking tips to improve on your bread making, please let me know! 🙂

  4. How about a metric converter? I am overwhelmed by recipes that do not give US measures for metric. It is hours more work for me and then I am too tired to even consider baking.

    One other thing; I use Namaste Perfect flour blend. Can I sub that in your bread recipe with the addition of dough enhancer?
    Please respond asap as today I have some energy for baking. (I also have MS, so my energies vary.)
    Thank you.
    And thank you so much for all the time and energy you took in compiling these pages. Once I master this I am going to try adapting it for pumpernickel. ;->


    • Hi, thank you for your feedback. I try to either add links to online conversion calculators, or use more than one type of measurement in my recipes, but I suppose it might be a good idea to create a conversion chart. I will put it on the list!

      As for using your own flour mix: I am not familiar with that brand or what’s in it, so it’s very hard for me to give instructions on it.. If you could give me the ingredients I might be able to advice you better. Otherwise all I can say is give it a go, and if you’re having troubles I can try to guide you based on what occurred. I wish I could give you better advice, but I would have to know how the flour is composed.

      I’m so glad you find the site useful, and it’s great help for me to get feedback so that I can kerp giving you better content!

      Let me know how you get on, and I’d love to hear more about your attempt at pumpernickel!
