It is really amazing how many types of GF flours are out there, mind boggling :)
I ended up spending almost a week searching for all the different types of flours that were being mentioned in the different blogs that I read .
In the end I chose to buy mine from Nuts.com , this is a great company that has been in busy for EVER and is family ran and owned. They have a really good selection of GF flours and other assortment of GF items too.
Along with candy, fruit, pasta and other gluten filled items too.

Then my eyes were opened to an all purpose GF flour that one of my favorite bloggers, Nicole, at glutenfreeonashoestring.com talks about, in her blog and book, called betterbatter.
This is a pre-mixed all purpose GF that takes the place of all the flours that I have and it also includes xantham gum, the binding agent that GF flours needs to act like a gluten filled flour.
And the best part of this is, it's one bag instead of 3-4 bags. Talk about baking utopia!!
So I went ahead and bought 2 5lb bags of betterbatter and went to baking "town"

I am officially a batterbatter converter :)
And I owe it all to Nicole :0).
