Blog

Welcome to my blog! I want to share my epic journey to discovering healthful and flavourful food while living gluten-free and with severe food allergies. Navigating shopping and cooking has always been a challenge for me. Actually just getting into the grocery stores with fresh fish markets was dangerous. I once left a grocery store by ambulance because the fresh shrimp sent me into an allergic reaction. I want to share my success stories so others can avoid the pitfalls and challenges related to shopping and cooking healthy gluten-free and allergy free meals.

I say no more bland chicken when it’s simmered and seared in a skillet with this beautiful blend. It becomes all bubbly and syrupy…. ‘oh WOW! say my taste buds”.

Food can make you feel warm, comforted and even aroused, so why not call it a language of love? Well at least that’s how I feel. After I met my now husband and realized that he might just be the one, I wanted to make a meal that would seduce him, let him know that I loved him deeply, all while feeling empowered myself. I made him a dish that I now reserve for only very special occasions – Chicken Paprikas.
