So last night I made cookies I can eat. Ths was after Ben's mom gave her boys monster cookies for fathers day. They are one of my favorite cookies and I knew I could not have one. So I started to look around online for a cookie recipe. I found one I thought would work for me.

Flourless Peanut Butter Cookies.

They were okay. They look like the real thing, giving me hope and they will do in a pinch when eveyrone is eating a yummy cookie and I am not. But they are no real peanut butter cookie. I did forget to add the chocolate chips so maybe that would help.

Eating gluten free is not all that hard but there are things that you miss. cookies, pizza, etc. I need to find a good pizza dough. I would like to find a good bread recipe so I can have a sandwich. But overall not too bad.

Tomorrow we will be in Portland so I may try to stop by Trader Joes. I hear they have a nice selection of gluten free products.

I am going to try a peanut butter brownie in a crockpot recipe soon. I am just looking for the last ingredient, gluten free oats. Stayton doesn't seem to have those. Well, I haven't gone back to our local healthfood store to check but they are almost a joke. They carry very few things.

So maybe I will let you know how that recipe went. Maybe even take a picture. I know how you all like pictures.

If you get into Salem, try Life Source. It is a really good health food store with a lot of selection. They have a lot of gluten free items and a bulk section. It is on commerical.

This is their website http://www.lifesourcenaturalfoods.com
There is a link that says gluten-free and it lists all the gluten-free products that they carry.

Take the time to hit Bob's Red Mill in the Clackamas area. They would have a lot of the stuff you are looking for when it comes to flour and oats. My Dad worked with them for years.

They have a little cafe too, that you could stop for lunch...
