This New York Times article points out that you can deduct the difference in price for gluten-free items from your taxes! It sounds like a behind-load of number crunching but that could be a lot of savings. Of course, I barely buy ready-made gluten-free stuff, but the flours, etc, are much more expensive. I think this is the beginning of an experiment! I’ll keep a log of gluten-free items I buy and their prices, then compare those with the conventional equivalents’ prices and see where we end up. I’ll keep you posted.

Incidentally, you’ll notice that most of my recipes don’t require special gluten-free ingredients (except for the baking items, which require the wacky flours, of course.) Why wasn’t my blog featured in the NYTimes article!? Hmmmph. So rude.
