Welcome to the Gluten-Free Nosh blog.
In this blog, I share recipes, tips and experiences to help gluten-free families. I also have an emphasis on creating gluten-free versions of traditional Jewish recipes, since I’ve struggled to find suitable gluten-free substitutes on many holidays.
My husband, two daughters (8 and 11 years old) and I live in Chicago, a great city for playing and eating, so I include tidbits about gluten-free dining in Chicago, too (check out my “Restaurants” tab).
Our youngest daughter was diagnosed with celiac disease when she turned 2. Since then she has been on a strict gluten-free diet and our house is 95% gluten-free, even though she is the only one with celiac.
I now offer gluten-free consulting services in the Chicago area, including advising you on gluten-free grocery shopping, setting up a gluten-free kitchen and guiding your gluten-free child through school and camp. Please see the Consulting page.
My background is in journalism. I’m thrilled to use my writing background to share some of my accumulated gluten-free knowledge. It’s an ongoing process, but I’ve learned how to create gluten-free versions of some of our favorite foods, how to navigate through restaurants and vacations gluten-free and how to deal with issues that come up at schools, birthday parties and playdates.
We keep kosher at home, and I’ve designed these recipes to follow kosher guidelines of not mixing dairy and meat products in the same meal.
This blog is dedicated to our two wonderful daughters: the youngest, who is our reason for being gluten-free, and the oldest, who is the most enthusiastic taste-tester and recipe developer. It’s also dedicated to my husband, who is my biggest supporter (and biggest tech support too). I love you!
