    I’m dying to try many of your GF recipes, but I don’t have a printer (tiny smartphone). Any plans to publish a cookbook???

        Hi Mary Beth
        Try your local library to print out copies of the recipes you want to try. I’m not sure where in the world you are but in NZ we have access to computer time at our local libraries and can print a A4 page for .20cents each. I hope this helps.
