    There are a growing number of people that due to health must eat a gluten-free diet. The items used in this recipe for the most part are items that you will need to stock in your kitchen.

    I just tried to vote on this. I will have to write these ingredients down. I have a neighbor who uses these types of items in her diet. She is diabetic. She will be very appreciative of this, I'm sure.
