For me, having Celiac Disease is hardest on any holiday…I think it is the temptation of all the food that is set out to eat and I can not have most of them. Holiday’s are also hard for fear of getting sick at someone else’s house!
I am Irish, so I love Saint Patrick’s Day!
I am so happy to be able to share with you my recipe for the BEST gluten-free Irish Soda Bread!
GLUTEN FREE IRISH SODA BREAD
