When life gives me lemons, I like to make some fancy lemonade from it!
A recent - but stubborn - wrist & elbow injury has sidelined me from taking sewing commissions for a while. I like to remain productive, so I'm happy to announce that I've begun work on Beyond Flour 2 - a sequel to my 2014 cookbook, "Beyond Flour: A Fresh Approach to Gluten-Free Cooking and Baking"!

If you are interested in being notified when our Beyond Flour 2 campaign goes live, sign up below! (We may do a giveaway or two as well, but don't expect a ton of emails from this list!)

Tornado Recovery Update: Iron River Construction Review

Last night I received a disturbing, unprofessional email from the construction company we hired after the tornado. I’m still not sure if the fact that yesterday was exactly 4 years and six months from the day of the tornado makes the ordeal we’ve been going through even more sad, or if I should laugh about […]
