Hi and welcome to Feeding Gluten Free! Here on this blog, you will find all gluten-free recipes that have so much flavor, you can’t tell they were made not using gluten. I want people to come to this blog when they want to DEVOUR INCREDIBLE DISHES. That’s right. If you have to eat gluten-free, choose to, or want to make a recipe for someone who is gluten-free, you will find what you need here.
My name is Jen, and 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 dug deep and learned alot about food and how to cook with fresh and wholesome ingredients. Little did I know I wasn’t missing out on a thing! I mean, quick hot chocolate? Hello! How did I not know this could be concocted! Or that restaurant tacos could be made even better at home.
I figured out that gluten-free can look and taste just as incredible as gluten full dishes. It’s all about knowing how to season, use fresh produce, utilize natural fats, and incorporate quality ingredients. ANYONE can eat these recipes, because they taste no different than the real thing. Because they taste like the real thing. Maybe even better! People who don’t need to eat gluten-free will never know the difference. And the ones who need to or choose to eat gluten-free, aren’t missing out on a thing. These recipes are for the gluten-free adventurers who want to make their dishes taste hearty and full of flavor. Just like any other dish that happens to have gluten. There is no room for blandness here!
About me? I come from a family of surgeons and doctors and nurses, but I pursued journalism and theatre in college. I sing musical theatre and love comedy. Following my years at Butler University, I drove out to Los Angeles to act. During that time, I was home visiting family and met my husband on a blind date. He knew more about movies than anyone I’d met in California. Plus, he was hot. I am now a stay at home mom with two beautiful children and a crazy puppy. My dream is to one day publish a cookbook and have a show on the Food Network. One can dream, right?
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 here to show you how to make them all at home, one ingredient and photograph at a time. These are recipes that EVERYONE wants to eat! And they happen to all be gluten-free! Whether you have to eat gluten-free, choose to, or want to make awesome gluten-free dishes for friends and family, this blog is for you. THESE RECIPES ARE FOR PEOPLE WHO WANT FULL ON FLAVOR! And I’m gonna give that to you!
