    Any of this sound familiar?

    • You have no clue which gluten free flours to buy.
    • You bought gluten free bread for an obscene amount of money and threw it out because it was inedible.
    • You miss your family’s beloved chocolate chip cookie recipe but don’t know how to make it gluten free.
    • You’d like to eat out but are afraid to step foot in a restaurant for fear of being glutened.
    • You want to make cupcakes for your child’s party but have no clue how or where to start.

    Learning to bake or cook gluten free is an acquired skill. It took me at least 7 years to really get the hang of it, but once I did, there was no stopping me. Do you see those pictures in the grid at the top of this page? Those are not stock photos. They are pictures of food that I created in my own Gluten Free Diva kitchen. I have two HUGE notebooks of recipes that are now my tried-and-true gluten free recipes, the ones that I’d make for anyone, the ones that I know are lip-smacking good.

    I am PASSIONATE and crazy about gluten free baking and cooking! And I’d like to share my passion with you. I’d like to save you from all the mistakes and disasters I had. By doing so, you’ll avoid wasting massive amounts of money and time on something that, with guidance, you can master in no time.

    Not to mention, everyone in your family will benefit from your triumphs in the kitchen. And your everyday cooking as well as your holiday feasts will be talked about by everyone.

    So, what do you need to do? Sign up for one of my 3 hour classes or my VIP All Day Experience and:

    • Quickly master gluten free cooking and baking skills that take others years to accomplish.
    • Your friends and family will be begging you for the recipes.
    • I will teach you time-saving tricks and techniques that took me the better part of 7 years to learn.
    • You will learn how to take a favorite family recipe and make it safe for you and your family to eat.
    • You will return home with a selection of delicious, crowd-pleasing dishes that will be your go-to recipes for everyday and holiday cooking
    • You will learn how to save time and money in your gluten free kitchen.
