I have always loved to cook and especially loved to bake. This was complicated when I found out I am a celiac, and had to stop using gluten (wheat, rye, barley) in my recipes! I pride myself on still making very yummy treats and modifying normal recipes, and people generally don't even know they are eating gluten-free food that I've served! I am a freelance writer and editor with three children. None of us necessarily like the same food, so I am constantly striving for compromise.
