Gluten free bloggers. There are alot of them. So, you may be asking yourself…
Q. HOW WILL THIS BLOG HELP ME?
It will help you learn to cook gluten free dishes from scratch, no matter what lifestyle you’re going for. I realized one day that ‘clean eating’ is overused. And maybe misunderstood. For some, clean eating means something like fresh greens and raw vegetables. For others, it means grass fed cattle grazing humanely, producing amazingly tender meat. Some will argue that lard is absolutely used for clean eating. I tend to agree 100%. My point is that gluten free can be ALL of these. Clean simply means fresh. And most gluten free dishes made from scratch…..start with fresh.
You’ll find what you need on fromentfree.com. The fact that every dish is gluten free will only add an extra flare to your dish! People will be extremely impressed. And then they’ll think you’re cool. And then they’ll think this blog is cool. And that’s the point. Just kidding. Or am I?…….
Q. WHO IS THIS BLOG FOR?
I launched this gluten free food blog right before Christmas in 2015. Here you will find healthy dishes, not so healthy dishes, indulgent, savory, sweet….you name it. And they’ll all be gluten free and clean. You’ll also find good writing. If you’re gonna learn how to cook here and use my recipes, then I’m not gonna disappoint with the writing. I’ll also blast amazing photos of food and dishes on this blog. All mine. All for you. For each recipe, my goal is to make you salivate and make you want to eat your screen. Period.
Q. WHY THE FREAKING COMPLICATED TITLE?
Froment means ‘wheat’ in French. Free means ‘free’ in english. So, ‘wheat free’ was the concept here. I have to spell it out over the phone to people and it’s funny to me. And it just sounds cool. Plus, I have French relatives and my dad’s second language is French.
Q. WHO ARE YOU?
I’m your gluten free eating fairy godmother.
Q. NO, LIKE WHO THE HECK ARE YOU?
I’m the creator, cook, photographer and writer of this gluten free food blog.
I was diagnosed with Celiac disease. So, the idea of owning a food blog and creating gluten free recipes felt fitting.
I wrote an ECookbook! You can buy it HERE.
I was awarded a Voice of the Year Award last year with the BlogHer network for food photography. My recipes and photos have been featured in various places, including MSN and BuzzFeed. Recently, my photography was featured and put on display at a Roberts Camera Gallery Night event. I’m an obsessed food photographer. I love styling and taking pictures of food. Food sits still. I love that.
I have a hard time taking photos of my kids. They don’t stay still. So, I put them in canvases all over the house. Where they can stay still.
I’m allergic to shellfish. I’m what you call ‘a hot mess.’ This year, I will be working on getting shellfish recipes to you. I’ll wear gloves and have others test the dishes. The seafood manager at the Kroger in my town is allergic to shellfish. He gave me inspiration. I’ll stock up on epinephrine.
I am horrible with fashion. Absolutely horrible. Love looking at it. Don’t know how to do it. It’s why I wear black all the time.
I love to sing. I sing when I can, where I can. Whether it’s the national anthem somewhere, or in the shower.
I haven’t brushed my hair in years. I have thick, curly hair. It doesn’t like brushes. My hair will attack me if a brush comes near it. So, I succumb to its power.
I LOVE music. All kinds. I play it when I’m cooking. And photographing. And typing.
Cooking from scratch can be so simple and money saving. Cooking gluten free is alot easier than most people think. Many standard dishes are already naturally gluten free. And substituting few simple ingredients is one of the easiest processes I’ve come across in the kitchen. You’ll find that my blog….is a great place to stay.
