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!)

The One CHEESE Ring!

Recently, I had to make something to bring to a Lord of the Rings themed potluck. I wasn’t in the mood to make my Lembas, and didn’t have time to order the Elderflower syrup to make my Miruvor. I was on a big cheese kick (as always!), with a lot of cheese in the fridge. […]

Moroccan Spiced Lamb Burgers with Pea Hummus, Goat Cheese, and Beets
