Hi! I'm Deana. Thanks for stopping by. This food blog is all about cooking wholesome real food, developing gluten free recipes and creating weekly menus to save time and money while reducing stress and food waste. I had to start eating gluten-free in November of 2010 and dairy/casein-free January 2014 (except for the occasional Parmesan cheese). I'm kind of a nerd, too. In the '90s, I earned an undergrad degree in Biochemistry from The University of Texas at Austin. Hook 'em! \m/ Then followed up with a PhD in Biochemistry and a law degree from the University of Houston. I'm currently learning about bioinformatics and genomics from Johns Hopkins University online program.
This blog is about cooking real food from unprocessed ingredients to make simple and naturally gluten-free meals and casein-free/dairy-free (except for a little aged Parmesan and goat cheese). We try to "healthify" our favorite comfort foods using organic fresh veggies, lean proteins, healthy grains and lots of spice!
