Have you ever waited in one of those really long lines at the mall for a soft pretzel? You know…the ones for Auntie Anne’s, or Wetzel’s Pretzels? You just can’t help it, right?

Ultimate Gluten Free Bread & Veggie Wedgie Even though I have no problems digesting gluten, I love baking gluten free.Why? Because our lives are filled with gluten : bread, pasta, couscous, cracked wheat, cakes, cookies, scones, pastries, seitan-you get the drill.
