I’m Cinde, a foodie with a passion for teaching and a soft spot for anyone on a restricted diet. Whether you're new to gluten free cooking or new to cooking, I'm excited to share what I've learned and help you create a gluten free lifestyle you love.
Once you tackle the topic of gluten free flour, you'll be on your way to cooking and baking food the whole family wants to eat.
Why Did I Start My Blog?
After my friend was diagnosed with celiac disease in 2009 I discovered there was more to gluten free than just recipes.
It was a steep learning curve with ingredients I’d never heard of and many disappointing results. I persisted, and over time I learned about the many individual flours and blends and was thrilled when friends started to ask with delight, “is this really gluten free?”
That's when my husband, Jim, decided to build this website so I could share recipes, tips and resources to cook gluten free.
The Stomachless Food Photographer
In 2019 Jim had his entire stomach removed because of cancer so we now call him the “stomachless food photographer”.
What can he eat? Just about anything in small amounts, and he still enjoys cooking and taking pretty pictures.
What Do You Do When You’re Not Cooking?
I love sports and the outdoors so when I’m not in the kitchen I like to golf, hike, kayak and ski. I also enjoy gardening and spending time at our family cabin at Moyie Lake, BC. In my Instagram and Facebook stories you may see me outside doing one or those things. Occasionally I'll post a picture with our son, a young actor who lives in Vancouver, and more often our dog Casey.
I also volunteer with the Calgary Chapter of Celiac Canada hosting the Celiac 101 Information Night. It's virtual, free and open to everyone so check it out if you want to learn more about managing celiac disease.
My Health Care Experience
By day I'm a respiratory therapist and respiratory educator helping people manage their chronic conditions; asthma, allergies and anaphylaxis. After 25 years I'm still sharing the same messages but over here it's about gut health. You'll find links to credible organizations, helpful resources and health professionals all in the gluten free space.
