Special Announcement|Introducing Alicia…New Featured Contributor

When I started this space on the world wide web, I never could’ve imagined all the places I would go and people I would meet because of it. Nearly three years later and this blog has a reach well into the 10’s of thousands and is read in more than thirty (>30) countries including:

  • Phillipines
  • Quatar
  • Germany
  • New Zealand

“Oh the places you’ll go”

I remain honored and humbled that anyone, anywhere takes the time to visit this site and read my ramblings. So, it is with an open heart and mind that I continue to grow, push, and develop more engaging content and recipes for all of you (Dear Readers). I am happy to announce the very first regular contributor to the blog: Alicia Alvarez. Alicia is a celiac survivor and all around A+mazing mother, writer, foodie, competitive athlete (WHOA), cool person, and budding friend. I’ll save the musings on how we connected {for a later time :)} and let you jump right into her first feature; where she details her celiac journey. Take a moment to read and welcome Alicia to the gluten free blog family…We’re glad you are here. Continue reading

Special Announcement: US Pain Foundation’s Ambassador of the Month

US pain foundationLike everyone else I wear and juggle many hats and when I’m not busy running this blog I am posting about my life as a fibromite and supporting where I can the efforts of the US Pain Foundation. Still it comes as a great surprise and honor that they have recognized me as their Pain Ambassador of the Month. The US Pain Foundation’s mission is  to advocate, bring awareness to, erase the stigma around, and support individuals living with fibromyalgia and other chronic pain conditions.,

Fibromyalgia has taken so much from my life yet I have risen above many challenges and obstacles opening up many doors and opportunities in the process. I share my experiences here and over at Living with Fibro to inspire and help other people living a similar journey know that a full life is still possible despite chronic pain.

If you live with chronic pain or know someone who does click the links below to learn how you can join the movement yourself or get assistance and support on your journey through the US Pain Foundation!

Thank you so much US Pain for this recognition!

Special Announcement: Gluten free baking mixes

Drum roll please! I am pleased to announce the official launch of my gluten & dairy free baking mixes. I have been busy these last few weeks finalizing and putting the finishing touches on these mixes. You may or may not know that the gluten free chef was born from the retail bakery that I founded in Nashville last fall. I wasn’t able physically sustain the bakery due to my health but I was determined to keep the blog and my wonderful baked goods alive. Producing and packaging mixes is so much easier and less time consuming than product baking.

As a start you are now able to purchase my

Gluten Free Chocolate Chip Fudge Brownie Mix


and my Gluten Free Vanilla Oat Banana Bread Mix


These items were some of the most popular in my bakery and I knew that they needed to be the first products I developed into a mix. These baking mixes are completely gluten free and produced in a gluten free kitchen. I have taken care to use certified gluten free ingredients in each one of these carefully blended mixes.

Click on each of the photos above to learn more and buy your mixes online today!

Stay tuned as I will be launching a special coupon special to celebrate the launch.
