Vic and Hallie's Gluten Free Baking

Click here for this recipe

This site was originally created to share the results of a series of experiments using a new bread additive that was supposed to improve the texture of gluten free bread. The original goal of posting only bread recipes became a bit warped, and now Hallie and Vic are posting gluten free recipes that are either family favorites or extremely interesting gluten free baking experiments.
