In our house, a dramatic diet change has recently taken place for the whole family. One of our kids was diagnosed with celiac disease over the summer and now, in support, our whole family is working on eating as gluten free as we can, as often as possible. That’s why we’ve been on the lookout for awesome tasting gluten free meals that are easy to make, especially at dinner time when we’re all together!
