Being diagnosed with celiac disease is HARD. Having someone coach you through it makes it EASIER. It’s important to acknowledge the very real emotions and challenges we face with this diagnosis. But it’s also equally important that you get to choose HOW you want to your transition to gluten-free living to be. You can sit in the suck of celiac disease & struggle trying to figure this all out by yourself.. OR you can invest in getting help from someone that has walked the path before you and can light the way. ⭐️They will show you what is possible and give you the answers you’re seeking. ⭐️They will give you the tools, the strategies, and the support to navigate this new journey. ⭐️They will hold you accountable, motivate you, and empower you. And then you can quickly feel more confident speaking up for your gluten-free diet. More prepared to dine out in a restaurant and keep yourself safe. More capable of traveling away from home or taking your first vacation. And more in control of your life with celiac - moving forward and improving every single day. You deserve to THRIVE in your new gluten-free life. Not just survive it. There is just over a month left in this year. What are you doing NOW to set yourself up for success with celiac in 2023?

The first few Thanksgivings of my celiac diagnosis I didn’t know.. 👉 What techniques were needed for cooking & baking gluten-free with success 👉 How to feel more included in the celebration when everything was focused on food 👉 How to make my family’s recipes to be gluten-free & taste like I remembered! And this only led to me feeling left out, sad, and like the holidays would never be the same. I remember watching everyone eat all of the food while I sat there WITHOUT my favorite dish.. (like my aunt’s corn casserole, a childhood favorite!) And this went on for years until I finally mastered converting my family’s recipes to be gluten-free. Now, I have the strategy, the techniques, and the right products to replicate that corn casserole recipe! And I attend the holidays with yummy recipes and dishes I’m so thrilled to be eating! So if you want tomorrow and every holiday for years to be a delicious success… With scrumptious gluten-free recipes you’re both excited to eat and PROUD to share with your family and friends.. You need to sign up for my new Masterclass! Everything is pre-recorded, so you can quickly get this information so your recipes are a SMASH for Thanksgiving tomorrow and all of your future holidays! But hurry - this is an exclusive Black Friday offer and after Friday, this bundle will be gone!

Yes, you CAN enjoy the holidays with celiac disease. 👉🏼I know it’s different than before. 👉🏼I get that it’s mentally taxing and socially uncomfortable. 👉🏼And I totally understand if you feel left out. I’ve been there and it took many years to be able to enjoy the holidays like I do now. My first few Thanksgivings I felt left out watching everyone eat all my favorite dishes while I couldn’t. While I sucked it up and didn’t complain, it really was hard. And then when it came to dessert, I was disappointed by the gluten-free pie sitting on my plate. Food is inherently tied to our cultures, backgrounds, religions, and our holidays/celebrations. So when that “food” piece of your life is ripped away because of celiac disease, it can feel like the holidays just aren’t the same anymore. 👉🏼And that’s why bringing the food BACK in scrumptious and safe gluten-free form will make the holidays so much BETTER. Because you’ll be so happy you get to have your aunt’s special cookies once again… It will bring you back some of that joy that you’ve been missing from the holidays. That’s what you can do with my new Masterclass! I’ve spent 10+ years learning the best ways to cook and bake gluten-free so that you’re happy about the food on your plate during the holidays! And I’m teaching you how to easily convert your favorite family recipes to be gluten-free and taste so good people will ask, “This is gluten-free?!” This Black Friday offer is only available until Friday, 11/25, so grab it NOW so you’re excited for Thanksgiving this week and all your future holidays!

What if the holidays were a little easier this year because you had foods you were EXCITED to eat?! Heads up: It totally can happen for you! I know the holidays can be ROUGH with celiac. The focus on food and feeling left out of the celebration can be really hard on us emotionally. Or maybe you’re embarrassed that your gluten-free dishes aren’t turning out how you hoped. Now you’re worried you’ll spend Thanksgiving watching everyone else enjoy their plates while your plate is full of, as @philhatesgluten would say: sad gluten-free food. ☹️ But here’s the thing: if you’re not happy about what you are eating during the holidays, you’re only going to dread days like this! Because the holidays are the days we are SUPPOSED to enjoy our favorite meals, dishes, and special treats. You need to have food you’re PROUD of eating, and maybe even want to share with others! (For me, it’s always a dessert! 😋) But if you’re embarrassed or disappointed by what’s on your plate, you won’t be happy during the holidays. You deserve to enjoy scrumptious gluten-free food this holiday season and for YEARS to come. You deserve to have a fabulous dessert to look forward to just like everyone else (and one that is safe for you to eat!) And that’s what’s inside my new Masterclass! I’m giving you the tools to convert your favorite holiday recipes to gluten-free form and taste delicious! Plus you’ll get 3 baking tutorials of holiday classics like apple pie and gingerbread cookies, showing you how to make them step-by-step, with success! 🥳 That way you’ll have food you’re thrilled about eating during the holidays, and won’t feel so left out! And you can use this Masterclass to transform those family recipes you’re missing into safe & yummy gluten-free versions. This offer is only available until Friday, 11/25, so grab it NOW so you’re excited for Thanksgiving and all your future holidays!

Converting recipes to be gluten-free can lead to disappointment if you don’t know what you’re doing! This is the thing about making gluten-free recipes: you need the right products and the right techniques to ensure your recipes are a delicious success. If you are just winging it and buying whatever GF product is on the shelf, and you’re cooking/baking like a gluten-filled recipe.. You might find yourself spending tons of time, energy, and money in the kitchen only to be frustrated by how it turns out! And that can make celiac feel even harder - especially during the holidays. I know because this happened to me too when I was first diagnosed. After multiple recipe failures it was easier to just give up or convince myself I didn’t need a gluten-free dessert at Thanksgiving. I spent lots of holidays in the beginning either eating my crappy gluten-free treats or just feeling left out watching everyone eat all the foods I couldn’t have. But when I decided “just okay” wasn’t good enough…When I learned what products I could rely on and the techniques that would lead to successful and yummy holidays changed for the better. I felt so proud of myself to share my tasty gluten-free treats with family, friends, & colleagues (and this is a tradition I do every year!) And I am always SO happy sit down at Thanksgiving because I have a scrumptious dish to look forward to for dessert! If you want to convert recipes to be gluten-free with success so you can save time, money, and energy… To feel proud of your gluten-free dishes this holiday season… My new Masterclass is for you! Everything is pre-recorded so you get instant access & can start preparing now for Thanksgiving! Plus you’ll get tips for troubleshooting common cooking/baking problems, like dry or crumbly baked goods. And I’m showing you how to make gluten-free apple 🍎 pie, gingerbread cookies 🍪 , and cranberry bread 🍞 , step by step! Link is in my bio to join!

When I was first diagnosed with celiac disease, I used to make crappy, sub-par recipes that didn’t taste great. I felt like my food just didn’t compare to what everyone else was eating at the dinner table on Thanksgiving. Over the last ten years with celiac disease, I’ve figured out what products are worth buying, and what techniques are needed to create scrumptious gluten-free recipes. The years of gritty quickbreads, clumpy pastas, and rock-like cookies helped me learn what not to do, and ultimately, led me to realize what to do instead. Now, as a gluten-free food blogger with thousands of visits to my website every month, recipes that rank #1 on Google and have gone viral on social media, I’m so proud of the 100+ gluten-free recipes I’ve created. And it’s my joy to share how YOU can convert your family recipes to be gluten-free and feel more confident this holiday season inside my new Masterclass! Inside this Masterclass you can: 👩🏻‍🍳 Convert your family recipes to be gluten-free & delicious 👩🏻‍🍳 Know which gluten-free products are worth buying, like GF flour blends! 👩🏻‍🍳 Overcome common problems with GF cooking/baking 👩🏻‍🍳 Make yummy GF holiday treats like gingerbread cookies, apple pie, and cranberry bread! This Black Friday offer is available right away as soon as you sign up - just in time for Thanksgiving next week! (It’s all pre-recorded!) And then you’ll have a strategy to convert recipes to be gluten-free & taste delicious for years to come: with the right products and techniques up your sleeve! Oh, and you’ll also get an invitation to join other celiacs for a night of gluten-free baking 🍪 inside the Confident Celiac Community on 12/15! Because the holiday season is all about connection with food, and what better way to do that than with people just like you? 🥰 Link is in my bio to join! 🎉 Graphic inspired by @celiacdietitian 💜 #celiac #celiacfood #glutenfreerecipes #glutenfreeblogger #glutenfreeeats #glutenfreecooking #glutenfreebaking #glutenfreerecipe #celiacproblems

Tell me if you’ve ever given up when trying to make your family recipes gluten-free! This can often happen if: 👉🏼You aren’t confident in cooking or baking normally, so removing gluten is a whole new level! 👉🏼You don’t know which products are worth buying and which to skip 👉🏼You’re confused by everything you read online and wonder what the heck you got yourself into! And when everyone else gets to enjoy their favorite holiday dish at Thanksgiving this year, you feel totally left out. Here’s the thing: I TOTALLY get that it sucks to not be able to eat your favorite recipes anymore because of pesky gluten. Food is something we come together and celebrate with, and not being able to take part in that is hard! But if your attempts to convert your grandma’s cookies or your uncle’s green bean casserole have been total failures… Or you haven’t even attempted them because you’re afraid it will just be a waste of time AND money.. That’s a sign that something is missing and you might need some more skill building! The key to success with gluten-free recipes is to have the right products and the right techniques up your sleeve! That way YOU can convert any recipe to gluten-free form, including your family’s traditional recipes for the holidays. And you can get a little piece of your old pre-celiac life back. If you want to convert your favorite family recipes to be gluten-free and taste delicious… To know the right products to buy that are worth your money.. And to get inspired for the holidays with gluten-free recipes that will wow your family and friends.. You’re going to want the details on my Black Friday offer! Full details drop this Friday, 11/18! #celiacdisease #celiacproblems #celiac #celiaclife #celiacfoodie #glutenfreebaking #glutenfreefoodblog #glutenfreerecipes

Can you relate?! I just don’t have the time, money, or patience for that! ⚠️ And before you come for me - I know that baking by weight & making your own gluten-free flour blend is what experts will say is the best way to bake gluten-free. How do I know? I’ve done it when making gluten-free bread and pizza during lockdown of 2020 (bc what else was there to do? 😂) But when you are diagnosed with celiac disease and get a craving for some gooey, warm chocolate chip cookies right out of the oven.. You don’t want to buy five different flours and go through an in depth scientific experiment to get them! Gluten-free baking doesn’t have to be as complicated as it’s seems online. AND you can still have scrumptious results that will wow your family and friends! You just need the right products and techniques to make gluten-free recipes not so intimidating, and much more attainable! So if you want recipes that taste amazing, that don’t require a million different steps, and to enjoy the holidays again because you can finally make that one side dish you always love every Thanksgiving… Don’t miss my brand NEW Black Friday offer! 👩🏻‍🍳 🎉 Details drop Friday 11/18! #celiacdisease #celiacproblems #celiac #celiaclife #celiacfoodie #glutenfreebaking #glutenfreefoodblog #glutenfreerecipes

Weekend Photo Dump of our spontaneous getaway to North Conway, NH! Dylan and I planned a spur of the moment weekend trip to New Hampshire (because yes, spontaneity is still possible when you have celiac!) We played some disc golf before driving north and rented a log cabin @airbnb while enjoying the unusually warm weather (almost 70 degrees 😱 in November). Gluten-Free Eats in North Conway: @thelocalgrocer - health food store & cafe, lots of GF groceries & brands. They also offer meals & smoothies (I got a green smoothie & asked for cross contact procedures). @peaceofmindbaking 100% GF and vegan bakery for their whoopie pies & sweets - can be found at the Local Grocer or around NH. @themetropolitancoffeehouse for coffee and tea (they also have @peaceofmindbaking bagels for sale) @hobbsbrewingcompany for GF fish and chips (GF beer batter, dedicated fryers, lots of GF marked items! Found this place on @findmeglutenfree !) @seadogbrewing for drinks and a slice of flourless GF chocolate cake! Sea Dog also has many GF options on their menu. @wickedfreshburgers for a GF burger and fries 🍟 of course! This is always a stop whenever we visit NH, and I shared about them in a recent reel! We also hiked Cathedral Ledge, explored the cute shops in downtown North Conway, and I read my book in my comfy flannel pants. 🤓 A perfect reset before heading into these next two crazy weeks! I’ve just made a bunch of updates to my Gluten-Free New Hampshire guide on my website. Tap the link in my bio and click on “Celiac Travel Guides” to read it!

Gluten-Free Lemon Blueberry Scones

I previously have developed a basic scones recipe for two eBooks: Gluten-Free Travel at Home, and Gluten-Free Breads Around the World (you can buy them here!). And for you dairy-free or lactose-free folks, don’t worry: you can easily make these scones dairy-free (I’ve tested it!) I’ve also had success making this recipe with Bob’s Red Mill 1:1 Baking Flour which is gluten and dairy-free. You can substitute your favorite gluten-free flour blend, but be mindful you may have to adjust as you go, as one GF flour blend is not the same as the next.
