Beautiful Letter I received from my friend, Donna Hodach-Price


AMONGFRIENDS WEBSITE



Such a nice letter I received from my friend, Donna Hodach-Price!  You remember - she is the wonderful lady that inspired me to get off my....to find a nice bake mix that was low-carb as well as gluten-free.  At the time, I didn't seem to have a whole lot of energy and she helped me out a great deal with initial testing of several bake mix ideas.  Although we abandoned the bake mix we both liked on account of the flax meal, the whole baking experience with Donna got me excited and moving again...in the right direction.  :)  Hence, the lovely Splendid Gluten-Free Bake Mix (not perfect but really not bad considering the tall order for such an unusual bake mix) was born and soon thereafter the cookbook, Low-Carbing Among Friends which was really my husband's brainchild and more than likely divine inspiration.

We've been receiving lots of lovely letters.  Please write us and let us know what you think as we've all worked so hard on this cookbook for almost a whole year.  My email addy is in my profile.

By the way, I've yet to see the cookbook. Here is an analogy of how it feels for me: It's like giving birth to a "baby" - writing a book has been likened to that and certainly one gains weight with writing a cookbook just the same as being pregnant (thankfully, since it is low-carb, not as much weight). Then they put my "baby" in an incubator and all the relatives and friends are getting to see my baby before I do and someone has driven me far away to the wrong hospital! Waah!

I asked Donna if I could share her letter on my blog, and being the sweetie she is, she said, "Yes!"


Hi Jennifer,

Oh my goodness...I was gone all day yesterday and when I got home around 10:00, there was my copy of Low-Carbing Among Friends.  I was SO excited to receive it and IMMEDIATELY opened it to scan the pages.  

I was first 'struck' by how large it is!  Compared to your other books, this one is HUGE!...and SO much great information and recipes from each author.  L-O-V-E the tips and extra info (the other participants must have gotten that from your other books ;-) From what I am seeing, I can tell that you must have been working really hard to pull this off.  

Overall, I am truly impressed and I'm certain that this will become my 'go-to' book for some fresh ideas and recipes to make my LC-GF life much more interesting and diverse.

Congrats my friend...you are AWESOME and I am so happy that I could help out just a little bit :-)

Sending hugs, love and boatloads of blessings,

Donna

I can't wait for my copy to come!!

I love the gf bake mix. My youngest daughter has epilepsy and migraines so we try to avoid gluten whenever possible and your bake mix is a blessing!!

That's really wonderful to hear, Jennifer. So happy the bake mix is helping. You have a big challenge in life and so does your daughter but she is blessed that you understand so much. By the way, I also suffer from migraines (about 10 years now). Mine is mostly hormonal but I have some food triggers as well.

What a GREAT letter! There's nothing like getting a note from a friend and such a lovely letter must have made your day!

Congratulations on not only the letter, but also your "labor of love"!

You haven't gotten a copy of your cookbook???? I hope that is remedied ASAP! What a neat letter...you've done a great service for so many.

Thanks Ann, you're a darling. You're right Donna's letter made my day. I was smiling so broadly, no one could wipe the silly grin off my face!

Lizzy, I am living vicariously through others and their letters to me. Waah! We live far away and it takes an age to get here. When it does arrive, I'll be jumping out of my skin with excitement!

THANK you!
