  4. i found them in an asian grocery (in the freezer section in a ziplock bag) you could also use shrimp paste if you find that.

  5. Hello! Your delicious blog is a terrific find! I had a tear in my eye reading your bio here... My mom has suffered with IBS for many, many years...trying diet changes has been a challenge for her. I will send this link to your blog. So much inspiration here. I'm a vegetarian, and have just started a food blog as an off-short from my main blog. I look forward to visiting here again. This curry beautiful...chicken for my hubby, tofu for me ;o) Happy Days!

  6. awesome Tracy! I understand how so many people have trouble altering their diets. For me, I am very goal oriented so I was able to set a diet goal and easily stick to it. Once I found that I was feeling so much better I really have had no urge to "cheat" or self sabotage.
    Hope you enjoy the curry!

  7. looks delicious. will have to try! i've forwarded your blog around to many gluten-free friends. thanks for putting so much effort into it!
