About Me

My Life LatelyHello there! It is so nice to meet you and thanks so much for stopping by! I am Val, a thirty something Gluten Free foodie. I have a strong passion for cooking, baking, hospitality, and Jesus. I am also a newbie food photographer that is still learning, so I am hoping you’ll see improvements in my food photos as I go.

I have been living Gluten Free for 7 years and I haven’t let that stop me from creating healthy and delicious recipes in my kitchen. I spent years trying to figure out my own health issues and that is why I eat Gluten Free. You can learn more about My Gluten Free Journey here.

I am a self taught cook that loves to spend time in the kitchen trying out new recipes using healthy ingredients. There is nothing that brings me more happiness and joy than being in the kitchen creating and experimenting with a crazy recipe idea in my head. I find inspiration by just wandering around my kitchen, the aisles of the grocery store, watching Food Network, or hanging out on Pinterest. I am also passionate about healing through nutrition, natural medicine, effective ways for naturally treating anxiety & self care, and sharing and living the gospel in my everyday life. I am not a doctor or health guru, but I just have knowledge from researching and reading throughout the years.

I am also the wife to the man of my dreams and doggy mama to our 8 year old lovable shih-tzu, Conner. Isn’t he adorable?

Cooking in the Kitchen

  “Do you not know that your bodies are temples of the Holy Spirit, who is in you, whom you have received from God? You are not your own; you were bought at a price. Therefore honor God with your bodies.” (1 Corinthians 6:19,20)
