Recipe: Gluten-Free Squash & Caramelized Onion Quesadilla

Welcome to the first day of June!  May was officially Celiac Disease Awareness Month, but as far as I am concerned, every month should be Celiac Awareness Month.  I take every opportunity I can to educate people on Celiac Disease and the gluten-free diet.  The most important thing is proper diagnosis.  Next up is realizing that gluten-free food doesn’t have to be tasteless food.  I gladly share samples, meals and treats with my non-gluten-free friends and family to show them that I may have to follow a special diet, but I eat well.  Where there is a will, there is a way. 

French Meadow Bakery has a line of gluten-free products including tortillas.  Check out this mouthwatering recipe below.
