Tonight was my first time attending the State College Celiac Support Group. I am just so excited to see a local group is now present because the next closest group is in Harrisburg, PA and that is just too far to drive.

Tonight I made Gluten-Free Macaroni and Cheese for the family. Spoiler: unfortunately I forgot to take a photo of the finished product. I use Betty Crocker’s recipe and convert it to a gluten-free recipe using the following substitutions:

The other substitution that I make is to use half sharp cheddar cheese and half Monterey Jack.This recipe when converted over to a gluten-free version tastes just as good as the original. Give it a try and enjoy it.
