The “Why” Story
I have always loved being in the Kitchen. It started as a child watching my grandmother, serve others. There was always extra for the friends and family that would come by, and I was the coffee girl that raced to fill a cup after a slice of warm pound cake. I love serving others! No matter the menu, it’s the “Love in the Food” that brings friendship and community to the table.
2008 brought extremely challenging times. I was struggling with multiple health issues and my doctor’s visit left me with yet another upheaval in my life. I was allergic to multiple things including Gluten. I decided that I would re-learn how to bake the things I enjoyed and ‘Love’ on others with food challenges like mine, helping them to Live and Thrive Gluten-Free. The journey began when I first volunteered at a local Gluten Free Bakery; that assignment led from a job, to ownership of the Bakery. The doors closed but the passion never left. I continued with Home Baking, Food Consulting, and Personalized Cooking Classes, followed by a Chef & Kitchen Manager job until God reminded me of my mission; To help those like me… THRIVE, GLUTEN FREE!
