xo Gluten Free Lover xo bio picture

my two loves . . .

Hello! My name is Kathryn - a Georgia girl and bona fide bread lover. Well, that is until I met and fell in love with Justin. Let's be real, I still LOVE bread and all things gluten-ful, but have given up that life for a gluten-free one - because now, I am a gluten-free lover.

I have always loved food. Cooking it, eating it, discussing it. I hope you'll try some of the recipes I've posted and you'll see - gluten-free cooking is accessible and delicious!

I have several recipes I want to share including one BBQ staple in particular; potato salad. I have finally come up with a potato salad recipe that I simply adore. Mustard Potato Salad has always been my favorite and I finally came up with the perfect recipe! There is not a picture of the Barbecue […]

Hamburger Mania

Since summer is just around the corner, I’ve been experimenting with hamburger recipes and I think it’s going well! The first recipe I tried was ground beef mixed with diced onions, Worcestershire sauce, egg, bread crumbs, etc. It reminded me of meatloaf. Don’t get me wrong, I like meatloaf, but not when I want a […]

Chicken with Forty Cloves of Garlic

Behold, the most magnificent chicken dish ever. The recipe is Ina Garten’s and I believe it to be the best meal I’ve ever cooked – well, so far. There are quite a few steps but they are all relatively easy and you only use one pot, so the clean up is minimal. I was even […]

Boeuf Bourguignon

My apologies for the several-week long absence. I was recently promoted at work (yay!) and am now full-time, which is a big adjustment after a year of being unemployed. In short – mama’s been tired, y’all. I haven’t been working on my cookbook recipes as much as I’d like (read: at all) and haven’t even […]

Great recipes for quick meals

The first recipe I want to share is for Brussels sprouts. Before you navigate away, these Brussels sprouts are easy and, I kid you not, DELICIOUS! I am an oddity in that I actually like cabbage but let’s be honest; Brussels sprouts have a tendency to be, well, gross. I’ve had them sauteed and they’ve […]

Sensational Soups

I made Lentil Soup with Sausage and Potato last week and it was so good, I made it again on Saturday. It is incredibly flavorful and hearty; and when J and I invited my parents over on Saturday, I decided it was the perfect lunch for a dreary February afternoon. (It’s not like we’re having […]

Play with your food

I’ve been playing with some recipes lately and wanted to share my findings. My Dad’s chili recipe, a favorite of mine since childhood, wasn’t supposed to be one of my experiments but I completely forgot to buy the extra ingredients so I just used what I had. It turns out I am skilled at improvising […]

Happy New Year!

In lieu of going out for an expensive dinner or fighting our way through a crowded bar, J and I opted for a romantic yet celebratory night at home for New Year’s Eve. We skipped all the dressing up and being fancy (except for the food – the food was fancy) and instead we snuggled […]

A Few Good Meals

The following recipes are simple meals that I made in between the all important dinners of Thanksgiving and Christmas out of ingredients I had in the refrigerator or freezer. I’m proud of my recipes (even though they are relatively simple) because they turned out the way I intended and it proves to me that I […]
