What can we say about Bruschetta? Bruschetta is so popular that it is served in almost every restaurant. Thousands of variations exist but I prefer the more traditional ingredients and preparations of Bruschetta--simple but classic, with juicy tomatoes, spicy garlic, sweet basil, and rich extra-virgin olive oil. 



ONLY FRIDAY 56 PARTICIPANTS MAY USE THE LINKY.

"The results of your tests are in. You have what is known as celiac disease," the specialist said on that fateful September 12, 2013. At first I didn't respond. I needed a minute to actually let those words sink in and process what I just heard. I was somewhat familiar with gluten since a few friends of mine do suffer with gluten intolerance, but I was not knowledgeable enough to really understand the implications. I told him that this could not be. I ate pasta and bread all year round but I was not sick all year round. It must be a mistake.

  1. Mmm, now I'm hungry. I love bread so if I ever am diagnosed with Celiac's, I am going to have a hard time.

  2. Your Friday 56 selection made me hungry, and the book's opening made me curious. I don't know much about celiac disease, but I've been hearing a lot about it lately.
    Thank you for hosting The Friday 56.

  5. Bruschetta is one of my all-time favourite Italian things, coming a close second to pizza. I would love to be able to make it properly myself. A friend of mine found out she was gluten-intolerant and was heart-broken for quite a while so I may have to tell her about this cook book! Thanks for sharing :) I hope you have a great weekend!

I only have until September 19th to get this book done. It's good though and I should be done in no time.

I'm also posting early for two reasons, 1; work, and 2; a review posting tomorrow. Watch for that!
