Hi and welcome to Froment Free! Here on this blog, you will find all gluten free recipes. All of the recipes here are made from scratch, using fresh ingredients and quality meats. I replace whole flour with gluten free all purpose flour whenever necessary. You’ll find everything here from comfort foods to healthy dishes to succulent meals and amazing desserts. The one thing they will all have in common is that they are gluten free.
My name is Jen and I grew up in Indianapolis, Indiana. I come from a family of seven and an extended family of many more. I was always surrounded by cooking growing up, from slow cooker meals to authentic Arabic platters. We were honestly spoiled.
I never had much interest in cooking until after I married my husband in 2005. He came from a family of nine and cooking from scratch was a way of life in his household. Over time, we began cooking together at home and experimented with different recipes we found. I would take photos of the dishes on my iPhone.
After our first child, I was diagnosed with celiac disease and gave up gluten right away. Cooking from scratch became a priority in our home. I began studying different herbs and how they interacted with foods. Fresh produce and quality meats were a must for me. Our second child was diagnosed with the wheat allergen at a young age. So in the fall of 2015, I picked up a DSLR camera for the first time and started shooting food photos. I noticed that all the gluten free photos I took looked just as gorgeous as the gluten full photos I took. I knew right then and there that I would start a food blog.
Some background on me? I come from a family of surgeons and doctors and nurses, but I pursued journalism and theatre in college and am a singer. I’ve performed all my life on stage and love comedy, as well as musical theatre. After school I drove out to Los Angeles to act, eventually becoming a part of the Screen Actors Guild. During that time, I was home visiting family and met my husband on a blind date. The rest is history 😉
My wish is to inspire people to get back into their kitchens to cook, and show them how easy and healthy it is to cook gluten free meals from scratch.
I began this blog in mid November of 2015, and have since received a Voice of The Year Award through The BlogHer Network for my food photography, and have been featured on MSN, Buzzfeed, and The Every Girl, among other. My first mini Ebook came out during the holidays of 2016, and covers gluten free Thanksgiving dishes.
