Gluten Free Easter

Time to think about our upcoming Easter dinner. Our family has been following a gluten free lifestyle for almost 12 years. Even though son is the only one with the Celiac diagnosis the doctors recommend that we all remain as free of gluten as possible. (And yes, there is a genetic tendency--so especially important for daughter.)
Anyway, we'll be having the usual: ham, mashed potatoes (or maybe potato salad), assorted vegetables, the always popular fruit salad (made with cool whip, jello, fruit, etc.), deviled eggs and whatever else the family requests. For dessert I think we'll have my personal favorite--carrot cake. Yep, it will be home made and special made but it will also be good.
Most people who come for meals don't realize we eat without using wheat flour. In fact, last spring when we had the giant graduation party for daughter everything but the large Costco cake was gf. And even then we had many requests for the homemade cake.
Believe me when I say coming up with good tasting food took some time. I'm still tweaking recipes... but it can be done. Don't hesitate to ask me for a recipe.
And have a good Easter.
