We have a very special speaker for our November 7th, 2015 meeting. 
Annalisa Roberts will be joining us and will be speaking on “Gluten-Free Baking for the holidays”.
Annalisa sister, Claudia Pillow is one of our own!  We are so happy to have Annalisa come speak and share with us. 
You will not want to miss this meeting. 
After being diagnosed with celiac disease in late 2002, Annalise Roberts devoted herself to developing gluten-free baked goods that taste just as good, if not better, than their wheat flour counterparts. Gourmet magazine featured several of her recipes in its November 2005 issue; she was the first gluten-free writer to have her work published in a mainstream food magazine. Since then, her recipes have been featured in newspapers and magazines across the country.
Annalise is the author of four gluten-free cookbooks that are sold in North America and overseas. Translated editions are available in South America and Eastern Europe. An expanded and revised edition of her best-selling book, Gluten-Free Baking Classics (April 2006), was released in September 2008. Gluten-Free Baking Classics for the Bread Machine, a collection of recipes developed for the Zojirushi bread machine, was released in April 2009. The Gluten-Free-Good Health Cookbook (January 2010), her third book written with her sister Claudia Pillow, provides food choice explanations and guidance, cooking advice, and more than 140 flavorful, culturally diverse, gluten-free recipes. Her new work, Gluten-Free Baking Classics - The Heirloom Collection was released in November 2014. It contains 90 timeless, culturally diverse recipes and insightful instruction for converting recipes yourself.
Annalise works with gluten-intolerant individuals and support groups across North America and give talks about gluten-free cooking and baking. After years of writing for her website (one of the first gluten-free websites in the country, dating back to 2003), she now blogs sporadically at
Annalise will be bringing some samples of baked goods from her new book, Gluten-Free Baking Classics- The Heirloom CollectionAnd, if you're interested in purchasing a signed copy of her new book as a holiday gift or for yourself, you can email Annalise directly to let her know ( so she can bring along a copy for you.

I look forward to seeing each and every one of you at the meeting on Saturday November 7th.
If you are familiar with baking gluten free, please bring a dish to share with everyone. Make copies of your recipe for others to pick up and take with them.  We all love getting new recipes.  
 We need more folks to bake and bring.  If you are new to the diet or not comfortable with baking gluten free yet, please don’t feel obligated to bring anything.
Sometimes the room can be chilly so if you are cold natured, you might want to bring a jacket.
See you there!!!
