As a food woman of many trades — cookbook author, culinary instructor, and gluten-free chef — I spend the majority of my day cooking and shooting, or dreaming and writing about my meals.
Several years ago, after being diagnosed with an autoimmune disease, I had to dramatically change my approach to eating. But as a passionate French fry aficionado and human of limited willpower, I refused to completely give up on all my favorite comfort foods. So today, on my blog and in my daily routine, I try to eat a lot of “good” with a little “bad” — a philosophy I like to call healthy hedonism.
I mostly eat at home, on food that I’ve prepared from scratch, usually during a weekend cooking spree. In doing so, I believe I’m already putting my best health foot forward. So take a peek at what happens behind my closed kitchen doors. Here’s what a typical day looks like in my wacky little food world!
