I’m a dental hygienist by trade, but my true love resides somewhere in the middle of trying new foods, nutrition, baking, hiking, and my dogs (and obviously friends and family).
I am a HUGE fan of Diners, Drive ins, and Dives, whenever Matt (my soon-to-be hubs) and I go on vacation, we almost MUST try to go to a place that has been featured! We have been to all of the ones around our hometown of Baltimore. It is a fun thing to keep track of! And I LOVE to yelp so this helps my elite yelping status!
(this here pictured above is my favorite sandwich from Chaps Baltimore- the Rachel! Pit beef place featured on Triple D! It was where Matt took me on our first date, our first valentines day, and I am surprised he didn’t propose there!)
I LOVE to bake. When I made choice (that was long time coming) of becoming gluten free, my huge fear was ‘How will I continue baking?’. For potlucks, family gatherings, book clubs, you name it, I always bring dessert (and it’s always good). Becoming gluten free was very hard for me because of this. However, I’ve made a lot of good gluten free desserts, and I am still trying!
I love love love hiking. I love fall foliage, I love waterfalls, I love the challenge and burn of my legs going uphill for miles. I love the scenery at the top that made it all worth it. Matt & I love to be active and hike on vacations! No beaches for us.
I love my dogs! I have the sweetest pup in the whole world, Moose, who’s a golden retriever! He will give you kisses, sit on your lap, and just love all over you! He is also so clumsy and easygoing. I also have the smartest, most acrobatic, and mischievous dog in the entire world- Wesley! We rescued Wesley, and boy, it has been a fun ride! He keeps me laughing, and DEFINITELY keeps me on my toes.
Oh, and I am a Crossfit enthusiast. (It’s all the rage right now)
My blog is to help YOUR gluten free journey a little easier by writing some reviews about products and recipes that I love (And some I don’t love) from a girl who loves bread, baking, and has pretty high freaking standards for food. If there is ever a recipe or product you want me to try for you, let me know! Or a ‘flop’ recipe you want me to try to see if I can fix it, just comment!
