A word from Kristina


Hello! I’m Kristina, the founder of this website, and I wear many hats – author of two cookbooks, recipe developer, editor, photographer, and a passionate tennis player and golfer.


Embracing a healthy and active lifestyle has always been a priority for my family and me. When we discovered that my daughter had a severe gluten intolerance, we transformed our kitchen into a 100% gluten-free haven. Going gluten-free was the perfect decision for us, and for my daughter, it was truly a lifesaver.


My mission is to guide you in mastering delectable meals, whether you’re cooking for a small gathering, a large party, or an intimate dinner. I love incorporating vibrant fruits, vegetables, herbs, and spices, along with nutritious ingredients, all while ensuring your time in the kitchen remains enjoyable and the results are delicious!


Whether you’re just starting your gluten-free journey or seeking culinary inspiration, you’re in the right place. We have something for everyone, and I’m excited to share the joy of flavorful and wholesome cooking with you.


Thank you for being here.


Kristina xx
