I am married to my best-friend, have three children, and live in Central Indiana. We love to garden vertically and build things on our off days. I have a cooking show for the Gluten-Free crowd, sharing what I've learned after being diagnosed with Celiacs. I've written several cookbooks and I love a good challenge. I
look forward to helping others here on Allrecipes as well.
My favorite things to cook
I love making soft pretzels, any kind of desserts and copying the famous dishes at resturants, I can dulplicate most recipes by one or two tries.
My favorite family cooking traditions
My mother is from the German "Amish". I love baking the ole` recipes in her mother's recipe boxes. The smells of remaking them bring me back to my roots!
My cooking triumphs
I have been trying new things on my family since I've gone Gluten-Free, from main dishes to bread making.
My cooking tragedies
When I was 8 in girlscouts, we had a cake contest, I came in last w my fast-baked, frosting-dripping, angle food cake, while the others had MOMMY help (pro-looking cakes), let's just say that started something in my heart to be the best chef I could be! ;)
