- Store your GF baking supplies and foods in a separate section of the kitchen or pantry (I have my own cupboard just with my stuff). Clearly label GF containers and products (I go crazy with the sharpie markers!).
- Use separate Utensils,cutting boards, and other cooking tools (I even have my own plates,bowls ect. and i keep it all in separate drawer).
- If you are preparing both GF and non-GF items at the same time,prepare the GF food first.
- Buy condiments in squeeze bottles if possible, or have your own separate jars.
- If possible buy separate appliances (such as a toaster and bread machine, also a toaster oven is a great investment if you are only cooking for yourself). I also have these reusable toaster bags that come in handy if we are at someone elses house. http://www.amazon.com/Set-NoStick-Toast-Toaster-Bags/dp/B0012XGM92/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&s=home-garden&qid=1284253655&sr=8-1
