 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, don't feel obligated to bring anything.
