So, I'm feeling like Rachel Ray. I already have a fan club (sort of) and I'm canvassing my family and friends for good ole American baked goods when . . . I'm diagnosed with Celiacs Disease. Well, that just blows (no pun intended). What is the most common ingredient in any baked good, any American baked good? Flour. Flour=Gluten, a Celiacs nightmare.
So, surgical gloves on hand and miniature helpers at my side, I'm soldiering on, breaking down borders with my baked goods!
Here are the recipes from my last class, converted to the metric system with vocabulary words on the side. You can edit the vocab list in the printable version to use the home country language where you live. Check out the Meat Loaf, and Gluten-Free Peanut Butter Cookies recipe!

Sweet and Salty English: Meat Loaf
Adapted from “Every Day Meat Loaf,” by Mrs. A.R. Rabuck
Sweet and Salty English: No Flour Peanut Butter Cookies (Gluten-Free)
1 cup (c) sugar
1 c natural peanut butter
1 large egg
Preheat oven to 190 °C.
Mix all three ingredients. Roll dough into 2 cm balls. Place on a greased cookie sheet 5 cm apart. Use the flat bottom of a glass to flatten each ball or press flat with a fork.
Bake for exactly 9 minutes. Let cookies cool in the pan for a few minutes before placing them on a cooling rack.
Eat when cool. They are firmer that way.
Yield: 36 cookies
