Hi! My name is Cassie. I was born in Minnesota, moved to North Dakota in middle school, and currently live in Fargo, North Dakota with my husband, our daughter Finley, and our perfect rescue pup, Kash.
My story with food issues started in 2015. After being sick for about a year, I finally went to a doctor to figure out what was wrong. I struggled to find a doctor that would help my manage my diet rather than go straight to medication. After leaving the major health care system and finding a couple private practice doctors, I was diagnosed with chronic inflammation, a dairy allergy, and multiple intolerances including gluten.
I grew up cooking and baking in my Grandma's kitchen and I have the pleasure of continuing to do so. I grew up in a family full of hunters and farmers where comfort food was an absolute must. When my food issues began, I made it my personal mission to take traditional comfort food recipes and make them gluten and dairy free. BUT, that's not all. I wanted to make them taste great. I refuse to sacrifice flavor.
This food blog was originally a series of notebooks, written in my awful handwriting. After sending photos of recipes to friends and family who are also gluten free and dairy free, having to decrypt my recipes due to said awful handwriting, I finally decided to put the recipes in blog form to share with everyone.
I love helping and answering questions for those new to the gluten free and dairy free life, so feel free to reach out to me, anytime!
Again, I am SO happy you are here!
