Happy New Year from all of us* at The Happy Coeliac! (*all of us = me and the cats) I’ve been taking some time away from the blog in January, making plans for the upcoming year, dealing with some real life stuff, and of course attempting to be as lazy as possible until the dark and miserable days of winter are mostly over.
2014 saw me settling in to life here in the Netherlands, learning Dutch, discovering places to eat (and buy food!) and of course, having several recipes published in my second eBook, A Gluten-free Dinner Party.
I went to Italy where I fell in love with the gluten-free food available there…
…and went to Copenhagen where finding gluten-free food near me was infuriatingly difficult.
(With the exception of this excellent meal at Frk. Barners Kaelder)
I had a gluten-free big mac at the McDonald’s in Zaandam (although we are still waiting for the gluten-free buns to be rolled out across the Netherlands)
And who could forget having poffertjes with the ladies from the Gluten Free Web Shop and judging the very tasty baking competition they held later in the year?
It’s been an eventful year, and it’s always a pleasure to share it with my wonderful readers.
But enough about me, let’s talk about you for a minute. What did you read in 2014? Top posts:
2. How to make gluten-free tiramisu
3. McDonald’s trials gluten-free buns in the Netherlands
5. Gluten-free chocolate chip cookies
And where were you from?
1. United Kingdom (50%)
2. United States (15%)
3. Netherlands (8%)
4. Australia (6%)
5. Canada (4%)
Ireland, Germany, New Zealand, Italy and Spain made up the remaining top 10.
What ho 2015!
2015 may prove to be a big year for me personally (not to mention turning 30 in November… eep!) but far more exciting are some of the things I’ve got planned on the blog.
New eBook series
Yes, that’s right, I’m going to be releasing a new series of eBooks (all gluten-free of course!) so let me know if there’s a particular category or cuisine that you would love to see immortalised in eBook form. I’m currently working on BBQ and Italian food, but have several others planned.
Gluten-free group (North Holland)
This meetup group is aimed at getting the gluten-free community connected to each other in this area. Our next meetup is in February at Spaghetteria in Amsterdam.
I’m hoping to visit Helsinki and St Petersburg in September, and I’m very curious to see what gluten-free options they have on offer.
And this Spring/Summer I want to start exploring a bit more of the Netherlands, so expect some posts about that as well.
