Hi and Welcome!
I’m Jen. Here on this blog, you will find wholesome gluten-free recipes of all kinds. Why are the recipes all gluten-free?
Because I have Celiac Disease.
I grew up in Indianapolis, Indiana. I didn’t start off making gluten-free recipes by choice. I have Celiac Disease, so I was kinda forced to. Diagnosed in adulthood, I had to change the way I ate.
What I DIDN’T want was to eat dishes that tasted gluten-free. I wanted to make recipes that tasted like all the meals I had been eating before my diagnosis. So, I began learning about food and how to cook with fresh and wholesome ingredients. Little did I know how wonderful ‘fresh’ actually tasted!
I figured out that gluten-free dishes could look and taste just as incredible as gluten full dishes. Knowing how to season, use fresh produce, utilize natural fats, and incorporate quality ingredients are some of the many methods I use to make my dishes taste naturally flavorful.
Now, I’m a gal who really likes food. Cooking it. Studying it. Taking pictures of it. And sharing it with YOU by taking it all to a gluten-free level!
These recipes are for the gluten-free adventurers who want to make their dishes taste hearty and full of flavor. There is no room for blandness here!
I do NOT like pictures of myself. I come from a family of surgeons and doctors and nurses, but I graduated with a Journalism and Theatre degree from college. I sing musical theatre and love comedy. My favorite band of all time is One Republic. They make me feel. And they love good food, which is a plus.
Following my years at Butler University, I drove out to Los Angeles to act. I got my SAG card and felt proud. During that time, I was home visiting family and met my husband on a blind date. The rest is history! I am now a stay at home mom with two beautiful children and a crazy puppy. I’m where I’m meant to be.
My dream is to have a cookbook published one day, which is filled with seasonal dishes that are gluten-free, full of flavor, and look incredible to eat. My other dream is to travel with my husband around the world. That will come. Just gotta get the little ones off to support themselves first.
These are mine right here below. They’re my heart and soul. And they don’t all have to eat gluten-free like me! If they don’t need to, then I don’t make them.
My goal is to give you lots of sweet and savory dishes on this blog that are gluten-free, but taste no different than regular dishes! I’m so glad you’re here!
