In 2018, I was diagnosed with celiac disease, which sparked my journey with gluten-free cooking. I was intimidated and overwhelmed at first, but as a lifelong cook and baker, I knew I had to find ways to create delicious and comforting gluten-free dishes that didn't compromise on taste or texture.
I was determined to create recipes that not only met my dietary needs but were also reminiscent of the foods I used to love. I believe that creating gluten-free recipes that are both delicious and comforting is not just a desire, but a true need.
Food brings people together and creates memories. However, for individuals with celiac disease or gluten sensitivities, enjoying these experiences can be challenging.
That's why I'm so passionate about creating gluten-free recipes that not only meet those dietary restrictions but also satisfy those cravings and evoke a sense of comfort and nostalgia.
Everyone deserves to feel included and enjoy the pleasures of good food, and I'm committed to making that a reality through my work.
How it Started
My love for cooking and baking started at a young age and ran so deep, my parents decided to gift me a KitchenAid stand mixer for Christmas when I was just 12 years old.
I cherished every moment spent in the kitchen, creating homemade delights from scratch. Imagine a pre-teen me whipping up Fettuccini Alfredo with freshly grated parmesan or preparing pizza sauce for my homemade pizza dough, rising beautifully on the counter.
The Food Network became my go-to source of inspiration. I was hooked on shows like Emeril Live and Great American Desserts with Debbi Fields. This led me to experiment with various recipes and techniques, constantly seeking to expand my culinary skills.
As an adult, I continued to develop my culinary skills and found myself drawn to the art of food photography when my husband gifted me my very first DSLR camera, a Canon Rebel T3.
I found a passion for capturing the beauty and vibrancy of the dishes I create and sharing those images with others.
Now, as a professional photographer and gluten-free recipe developer, I use my skills and expertise to help businesses elevate their brand by creating captivating imagery, engaging content, and delicious recipes that resonate with their audience.
Whether you want to showcase your products or services or simply share your love of food with the world, I'm here to help you tell your story through the power of food and visual storytelling.
Thanks for stopping by, and I look forward to working with you!
