We've said it once, we'll say it again: "Celiac? To heck with that!"
Don't get us wrong - we think a nice, crusty baguette is pretty groovy in its own right, but just because you're gluten-free (gluten is the group of natural proteins found in all forms of wheat and wheat flour) doesn't mean your life has gone to hell in a breadbasket.

Madrid (CNN) - A Spanish official bristled Wednesday at accusations that Spain was the cause of a deadly E. coli outbreak that has swept across Germany and Sweden.
Deputy Prime Minister Alfredo Perez Rubalcaba said, in a SER radio interview, that Spain will not rule out "taking action against the authorities (in Germany) who questioned the quality of our products."
Last week, German officials implied Spanish cucumbers were the cause for the illness that had sickened people. Rubalcaba later Wednesday responded forcefully to that accusation after chairing a meeting of government officials and fresh produce exporters in the southern city of Almeria.
Potential presidential hopeful Sarah Palin brought her "One Nation" bus tour to Manhattan on Tuesday, splitting a pizza at Famous Famiglia with Donald Trump, who recently opted not to launch a bid for the Republican nomination.
iReporter rpcstudio was walking to the subway Tuesday when he saw a crowd gathered outside the pizza restaurant and captured this photo of Donald Trump and Sarah Palin. 'One woman shouted "I can see Alaska from here," as Palin exited. Another man began to chant "OBAMA, OBAMA."'
The party reportedly shared both cheese and pepperoni-topped pies, but documentation does not indicate that any member opted for another of the chain's specialties - a ham and pineapple-topped "Hawaiian Delight."

When iReporter Patty and her husband Ed's travels took them to Breaux Bridge, Louisiana, little did the adventurous couple know that they were in for the seafood feast of a lifetime. At a restaurant called The Fruit Stand, they met a cook named Anne, and she sized them right up.
While you're frying up some eggs and bacon, we're cooking up something else: a way to celebrate today's food holiday.
You’ll think you’ve died and gone to hazelnut heaven – June 1 is National Hazelnut Cake Day.
Just imagining anything hazelnut brings to mind that creamy, dreamy chocolate-hazelnut spread, but hazelnuts are pretty spectacular on their own, plus they’re good for you too!
Still, one of the best ways to enjoy them is to bake them into a cake you’ll never forget.
