You want to or need to cook grain-free, and you want to create gourmet meals and snacks that fill your stomach and feed your soul. I know that's what I want!

With your help, this website will soon be a better culinary destination for gourmet gluten-free or grain-free recipes and ideas. Recipes that don't make your life better are being removed, and amazingly good recipes, ones that allow their high-quality ingredients to shine, are coming soon.

Eating Well On a Gluten-Free Diet

Living gluten-free does not mean having to eat poor-quality substitutes for all the foods you love, nor does it mean missing out on pot-lucks, restaurants, and picnics.

Changing how you think about food and cooking
, and doing a bit of planning and preparation, will help you adjust to your new way of eating much more easily.

You can prepare gourmet meals that you would be proud to serve anyone by learning just a few techniques and following the recipes.  Many meals require no grains at all to prepare, and the results are amazing.

Eating well on a gluten-free diet really is no different from just eating well:  buy the freshest, highest-quality foods you can, choosing locally sourced, organic, pastured, or wild-caught when possible, and prepare them simply.  Add a luscious sauce or a decadent dessert, and you have a meal fit for royalty.

Preparing gourmet meals takes no more time, effort, or expense than preparing poorly thought-out meals, and the difference between the two is astounding.  Take a few minutes now to look around and get some ideas, and bookmark this site, so you can come back often, as I am constantly adding new recipes, meal suggestions, and techniques.
