    Congratulations! I’m so excited for you!! I’ve thought about attending too, so I’m happy to hear that there are places for those of us with food allergies to go :) Wonderful.

    Can’t wait to hear all about it — enjoy your first day of school!!

    I’m so excited for you. This is a great opportunity!

    I’m not sure my recipe qualifies for a little bit healthier, but I guess so since everything is made from scratch. I used home made chicken stock but forgot to mention that in my post.

    Have a great week Amy.

    Amy, I am so so excited for you!!!!! I did the same thing after getting my BA. I wanted to go to culinary school, but was also afraid of not going the traditional route. Instead I got an MA in psychology. It’s worked out in the long run, but I’m always so excited when I hear about people who are taking that leap and following their passion. Can’t wait to hear all about it!!

    OMG congratulations! I am so excited for you. (and just slightly jealous) I am curious, which school denied you based on food intolerances? I have tossed those thoughts around in my head – how I would love to attend, and then I’d be afraid to go to a pastry class. Have you visited Celiac Princess’s blog? She attends culinary school, and has said it’s amazing, because most of the dishes they learn to make are naturally gluten-free! Anyway, many, many congratulations!

    Wow, Amy, that’s awesome! What a year 2010 is going to be for you! I can’t wait to follow your culinary school cooking adventures. I think you’ll be a wiz kid for sure. :-)

    I’ve linked up a recipe, pork tenderloin with maple glaze, that’s been on my site for a while. A friend/reader was just raving over it to another friend, so I was reminded of it and thought I’d share. It’s definitely a dish that can be used for a weeknight meal or to impress friends. It’s naturally gluten free and uses maple syrup which is unrefined and can provide some health benefits. It can also be made dairy free, by just using all olive oil (or another oil in conjuction with the olive oil).

    Thanks for hosting this great weekly event! I am just so excited that you are following another one of your dreams! Hugs,

    Shirley

    Amy,
    This is such great news. I am so jealous. I live pretty close to the CIA and was thinking about applying last year. I’ll have to live vicariously through you for now. I can’t wait to hear how it’s going! ps I’ve linked to a Meyer lemon pudding recipe that’s mostly raw and vegan (and sugar/gluten-free as well).

    Congrats on culinary school Amy. You will love it and learn so many fun and useful skills. I have been thinking about applying for Le Cordon Bleu in Austin for several years now. I probably will when I am done with my Master’s program now. Best of luck! Jess

    All the best! You’ll do great :)

    Good luck at culinary school Amy! I’ve considered the same, as I have a lot of food intolerances.

    I just wanted to say that I really appreciate your site. I’m not gluten intolerant, bur I can’t have any sugar, carbs or dairy due to a rather bad case of Candida in my stomach & intestinal tract. I’ve found a lot of Candida sites that are too lenient in regards to my diet by allowing things I can’t have, or need too many different ingredients. But I’ve found your recipes easy to alter for my requirements. When I can eat some carbs again, I’m staying completely gluten, refined sugar & grain free, so I look forward to trying more of your recipes. You have inspired me to get crafty in the kitchen, & I look forward to sharing some creations when I get some tangible recipes together!

    @Natalie, I do hope you’ll join in when you are ready, Natalie! Every week there seems to be more creativity and variety in the dishes shared.

    Also, thanks for your feedback about my blog. It’s always good to know that it’s helpful. :)
    Hugs,
    Amy
