About me

Introduction I’m Lisa, a 40-something Celiac in Newcastle, NSW Australia raised in Oklahoma. I was diagnosed with Celiac disease 18 years ago when the choices were rice cakes and one loaf of brick weight bread. Now there is more to choose from, but I am over flourless orange almond cake. I like it, but it seems to be the GF item on offer most of the time. Only a short time ago, my friends and family would joke about “the hot cooky thingy” in my kitchen. Cooking was NOT on my agenda! Until I embraced my disease. Enter a recipe in the Sunday newspaper for salt & pepper squid that looked delicious and was made with cornflower. OMG I could so have that! So I experimented with this dish, served it to my husband and ravenous teenagers, and THEY LOVED IT!! I had never had a reaction like that before and the cooking began. Now I have a new life filled with test kitchen madness. I love cooking for my family and my work team who, after I had a week off work, sent me messages to hurry up and come back as they had to resort to a bakery. Horror!. So after amassing recipes, GF information, and test cooking, I am hoping to share recipes and products. I wish you happy and healthy cooking!
