I love to cook and, with a background in science, I love to experiment with recipes!! That came in very handy several years ago when my best friend was diagnosed with Celiac Disease. We would get together with friends for monthly dinners and I would convert a dessert recipe to gluten-free. My friend asked me to write my recipes down for her, so I now have a long list of yummy desserts, plus many other food categories!
Then, last year, my husband discovered he was sensitive to gluten, as well. I now experiment and convert recipes every day. I want our meals to taste great, be simple to cook and be good for my husband’s health. I look for the best-tasting ingredients, too. Not all gluten-free flours or mixes are alike. If I can make something and no one can tell it’s gluten-free, then I’ve done my job!
I almost never follow a recipe exactly, though, which makes duplicating it a little challenging sometimes. It’s been really helpful for me to write them down for my friend and this blog. When I cook, I just add a little of this and that. I’m very comfortable with “winging it” and seeing what I come up with. Don’t worry, when I write a recipe in my blog, I will give amounts that I’ve tested and tasted!!
As always, any recipe can be altered for your own personal taste preferences. If you’d like to convert a favorite recipe to gluten-free (or dairy-free, sugar-free, etc. ), just ask me and I’d love to help you adjust it for your own dietary needs.
Enjoy my blog and “bon appetit”!!
