About this Cook
I have dairy and gluten food allergies, so I spend a lot of time in the kitchen cooking/baking from scratch. I love to spend time in my kitchen creating new recipes, altering recipes I want to eat so they are dairy and gluten free, and cooking/baking.
My favorite things to cook
I really like food that is very satisfying nutritionally and healthy. I love to make foods that truly compliment each other and you get the satisfying taste of everything in one bite. I do also have a sweet tooth, but find that less satisfying, but nonetheless love to make desserts.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Cooking a wonderful prime rib dinner at Easter rather than the traditional ham and having our wonderful friends over when we lived in Texas.
My cooking triumphs
I have been able to adapt most of my favorite recipes into dairy and gluten free and still enjoy them tremendously, if not more so. My family now eats how I eat, even though they don't have any food allergies. I love pizza and have made some awesome pizzas, so when we get together for pizza I no longer feel left out!
My cooking tragedies
It takes the correct flour substitutions when baking. I really depend on others for the baking aspect, because when I try substituting on my own it always flops!!! Thanks for others who are so much better at this so I can enjoy a favorite bread, cake and pancakes!!!

Chef John's Italian Meatballs
The most flavorful meatballs I have ever had! I just had to leave out the cheese due to allergies., otherwise made them per the recipe. Big hit!

Tortilla Rollups II
I made this dairy and gluten free, by using gluten free tortillas and using dairy free cream cheese and cheese. Most preferred mine to the regular!
