I would love any feedback from anyone, but I thought Adrienne might have some tips.

Charlotte's baptism is Sunday, and we are having a little brunch afterward.

I guess if they ever plan to visit again, you'll be well-prepared!

My pastor and his wife weren't able to come because their family would be visiting.

I have bought Pamela brand mixes (brownies, cake, frosting---I had to be GF when I was BFing Evan) and they've been VERY good. I've never made muffins though--but if Pamela brand has a mix, it will probably be good. If you buy GF flour, try to buy one with Xanthum gum already in it (I think Bob's Red Mill makes an al purpose flour with it added to it)--it makes the end result more like the regular version, and is pretty expensive when bought on its own.

If you buy Bob's Red Mill Gluten Free Flour, you can replace it for wheat flour in any recipe.

Thanks, Melissa. I didn't know about mixes.

Grace, thanks for the tips. I am familiar with the Bob's Red Mill brand. That sounds like a good option.

After doing some searching, I found a quiche with a potato crust. I might try that, too!

I have a cookbook with a lot of gluten free baking recipes, but they all use xantham gum, and tapioca flour and stuff. So probably not what you're looking for. I know there are lots of baking mixes out there you can buy (ie GF brownie mix), and

An easy option might be to buy a gluten free baking mix at the store, they have a lot of options right now, I think Betty Crocker even has some. You could also try at a store like Whole Foods, I'm sure they have a lot of mixes.
