It is a very rare (ok maybe not so rare but rare-ish) occasion that I actually see a baked good (such as bread) and crave it with all my being. But the other morning as I sat scrolling through blog posts (like ya do) at my kitchen table, I found my self drooling over photos of toast… and scones… and waffels… and real pancakes! UH, you guys!!!! It was food porn city and I was held captive by it’s evil ways.
I am all for living a gluten free (grain free even, if you are balsier than I) and for the most part I can fake a lot of baked items to taste like they are “real”. However, as much as I try to deny their inequality, they just aren’t the same. Gluten free bread is not REAL BREAD, gluten free cookies are (9 times out of 10) not REAL COOKIES, yes they are good… great even, but they just aren’t the same.
