With a house frequently full of friends, El (of El's Kitchen) couldn’t bear to serve a gluten-free friend the bland snacks that were the only choices available. So, she came up with her own line of gluten-free snacks to please everyone. She knew she’d scored when ALL of her friends scarfed down her snacks—then asked for more.
