Last week I launched the Lincolnshire Co-operative’s guest bloggers site with my gluten free macaroni and cheese recipe. One of the many reasons that I started blogging about gluten free food is because I wanted to share my love of food, cookery and baking with those who not only follow a gluten free diet, but also those who love food as much as I do.
