  1. Thank you, julie. I know many people appreciate your gluten free recipes . . . just from what I've heard. These scones look wonderful ... and what I've tasted of your gluten free, I could not even tell.

  2. Thanks for recipe....have a great Saturday!!! Ciao Flavia

  3. Julie, after tasting your Rhubarb Platz at Grandpappy's Furniture I am convinced your food really does taste just like wheat products. Judging from the line up to talk to you at the book signings , I can see you meet a huge need out there.

  4. Hi Julie
    I was thinking if your oven setting is convectional or stander I have a convection oven and just wondering if posted would help us who use it for baking ( pies, cakes, meat)

  5. Oh Shirley, that is something I never thought of .. my oven is standard but I'll remember to note that in future recipes.
    Thanks for bringing that point to my attention.

  9. I made your cranberry scones for non-celiac friends this afternoon and they loved them! I used a pancake mix I had on hand and they were flatter than the picture.Perhaps the flour combination wasn't as absorbent as the german pancake mix the recipe called for. They were delicious and will be a regular treat from now on. One friend asked for the recipe. I referred her to your web site. I am very grateful for the gluten free recipes you post.
