Hi and welcome to my blog! I’m so glad you’re here! As a self-taught home cook, my goal is to inspire others to become better at-home cooks by developing delicious and easy to follow recipes that are 100% gluten free (and dairy free a lot of the time too!). I want to promote an easy going and approachable brand of cooking that speaks to a wide range of tastes and helps people with gluten intolerance or celiac disease focus on what they can have instead of what they can’t.
What You‘ll Find on the Blog
Here you can expect to find everything from a 30 minute skillet lasagna to weekend baking and cocktails, to soups and foods with an ethnic twist. The recipes you’ll find here are inspired by my own creativity in the kitchen, and some of them are inspired by the memories, people, and places that I hold dear. I get bored easily, and I am constantly on the lookout for the next thing to add to our weekly meal rotation!
I have spent 15 years as a home chef cooking for my husband who has celiac disease. It’s a blessing in disguise because had it not been for his diagnosis, I may have never learned to cook anything from scratch or be as creative as I am in the kitchen! In the last 9 years we have added 3 children to our family who have been an absolute joy despite all of the challenges that parenting small humans can bring. They are all the real inspiration behind why I cook each day. In another life I may have gone to culinary school or owned a quaint cafe, but to be quite cliché, I wouldn’t trade what God has so graciously given me for anything. At the end of the day, my hope is that my children have great memories of learning and serving in the kitchen and meals can be one of the things that bring us back together again as they grow older. This blog is my personal passion, but it was, in part, created for my children. A digital diary and cookbook that they can carry with them wherever they may be as they grow up.
In addition to all of the recipes featured here, follow me on Instagram (@lizlaughlovefood) or my Facebook page Liz Laugh Love Food, where you’ll get to know even more about me, my recipes, and my passions in life.
When I’m not in the kitchen, I love hanging out with my husband and three kids (9, 7, and 2), singing on my church’s worship team, listening to music, and being a little bit of a fitness fanatic.
My Food Philosophy
To me, recipes should be approachable and enjoyable. Not intimidating and condescending.
Not every night in the kitchen has to look gourmet. In fact, for the average person, most nights won’t! Not all food has to be fancy (although I admit I do enjoy making and eating “fancy” things), but that’s not always practical and I get that. I want this space to contain a wide range of recipes suited for the beginning to the advanced level home cook. You can stick with your comfort zone, or when you’re ready, I’ll be there to guide you into the next level of cooking through my clear and easy to read recipes. If something goes wrong, I will be there to help you figure it out. I have placed a contact form at the end of every recipe for your feedback. Please never hesitate to let me know how I can help. And keep this in mind: not all food has to be the best (or best looking) thing you’ve ever put on the table. Don’t talk yourself out of trying something new just because you know it won’t turn out like a picture you saw. My desire is to be here to create recipes you and your family will enjoy and to support you along the way.
Lastly and most of all, I want to say thank you so much for stopping by and I hope this space makes your cooking journey more enjoyable and as delicious as ever!
