Find a gluten-free recipe!
gluten-free. dairy-free. re-imagined for everyday life.

Cookbook Giveaway! Plus, my all-time fave gluten-free, dairy-free cookie recipe!

Together, we are on an amazing gluten-free, dairy-free journey. I’m so thankful for my kids and all of you!! With the ups and downs Isaiah and I have faced along the way, there was one constant in our lives that we could always depend on—these chocolate chip cookies.

Making these gluten-free, dairy-free cookies wasn’t easy, but once I cracked the code and Isaiah took that first bite into a warm, melty cookie, his big smile said all I needed to know. I hope you and your family and friends have enjoyed them, too!

Becky Said:

I’ve tried gluten free recipes in the past that tasted like you were eating cardboard and have never wanted to try another GF thing since. We spent the weekend with some friends and every meal and the goodies she had made for us were delicious! When I asked her for her recipes, she said she had been experimenting on us and that everything she had made had come out of your cookbook. I couldn’t believe it!! So thank you!!! I’ve told every GF person I know about your cookbook since. Now my daughter wants it for her birthday. I’m hoping we can win it!! : )
