I was standing in line in my local grocery store the other day and realized that six of the eight items I was buying were labeled gluten free. I felt like I had arrived. No longer was celiac disease and the gluten-free diet a secret little society in which a few people traded tips and product information. I looked around and wondered how many other people in the checkout line were thinking the same thing, were eating gluten free.

While sorting through some old dishes my mom saved from her restaurant (she owned a little diner when I was young), I was struck by a very mundane itema heavy, white china coffee cup. No, I wasnt struck in the head by it; I was dumbfounded by its size.

I recently toured a preschool on behalf of my 20-month-old daughter. Im looking to enroll her in a program that starts next fall but it turns out Im way behind. I made the rookie-parent mistake of applying too late and landed on the waiting list. However, the preschool kindly invited me for a tour in case a spot opened.

I was diagnosed with celiac disease in the spring of 2005. While it wasnt quite the dark ages of celiacI had access to a grocery store with gluten-free flours and a few specialty items, like gluten-free pasta and crackersI still had to slog through plenty of dense food labels, using a cheat sheet in the beginning.

I was talking via e-mail with my friend Brendan who was diagnosed with celiac disease a year or two ago. Well traveled, he was reminiscing about the days before his diagnosis when he used to enjoy a loaf of fresh-baked bread or a warm, flaky but chewy croissant baked four minutes ago in a Parisian bakery.

Beth is in love with her bread machine. Well, technically, she's in love with the bread it produces that coveted wonderful-tasting and smelling loaf that is so difficult to create in a gluten-free world.
