I started “Gluten Is My Bitch” almost immediately after my celiac disease diagnosis. Mostly as a way to vent, try to figure out how to live my life, and experiment with making cake of every variety. And whine. Lots and lots of whining.
I’ve been a writer and editor professionally for longer than I can recall, exactly. I’ve written for other people’s blogs and online magazines, but “Gluten Is My Bitch” was my first personal blog. It’s been kicking for about 2.5 years. Whoa. That’s a lot of recipes using caramel and chocolate.
I honestly didn’t look that hard for gluten-free blogs, so I wasn’t exactly trying to fill a niche. It was more of a therapeutic exercise when I was told I could no longer eat donuts. It also made me try things in the kitchen I might not have, knowing that other people might actually see it Which is how gluten-free deep-fried Kool-Aid came about. You’re welcome.
I probably curse more than the average gluten-free blogger. Also, I’m fully committed to eating as much butter as possible.
In the future I would love to have more time to focus on developing more recipes. I miss hanging out in the kitchen all day and seeing what magic, or trauma, can happen. I would also love to include more travel on my blog. Mostly so I can say, “Yes, I am going to Italy. I have to. For the blog.”
I love hearing from my awesome readers whether it’s tips on how to make something better, or sending me recipes they’ve tried, or recommending a gluten-free restaurant. Also when someone says, “OHMYGODILOVEYOU” That’s the best. I just love those people. They rock.
