A 40-something wife and Mom. I cook (and bake a little) gluten free. Used to love baking SO much but on a different culinary path now (not by choice!) Since very little of my time now is spent on baking, my focus in the kitchen has changed and I am able to more finely hone my cooking skills. Feel free to browse through my recipe box if you are interested in gluten free recipes :-)I am slowly trying to cultivate TNT recipes into regular rotation but have mostly come to rely on my instincts more when cooking - it's so freeing to not follow a recipe, or just to use one for inspiration.
My favorite things to cook
I am currently loving my Spiral veggie slicer! It makes the best gluten free veggie noodles, such as with zucchini. So good lightly steamed and topped with a decadent marinara or meat sauce, or just drizzled with a lovely oil and topped with some fresh Parmesan. I am also completely in love with cheesecake so love to bake up new flavors once in a while, with a TNT gluten free crust of course!
My favorite family cooking traditions
Sunday dinner! ...Baking with Grandma...that's where I got my love of baking, I'm sure. I fondly remember baking up bread with her when I was little - can still feel the soft dough and smell the yeasty goodness. I always associate the smell of yeast and fresh baked bread with my Grandma :-)
