Due to the multiple requests she had received for gluten-free bread baking tips, Carla authored the ebook, “Gluten-Free Bread Baking Defined”, which is offered as a free download on her blog.
Her blog is full of a variety of gluten-free recipes from every day to gourmet. For those who have specific dietary needs they visit the GF Recipes tab and find categories for recipes such as dairy-free, soy-free, corn-free, yeast-free, sugar-free, vegan, vegetarian, and many more. She even provides your own personal recipe box and shopping list right on her site via ZipList.
Via her vast number of blog readers and social media fans, she is asked advice on everything from which brands to trust to avoid gluten cross-contamination to substitute suggestions. Carla answers every inquiry, personally. It took Carla over 2 years to figure out why her followers would always ask for a gluten-free recipe that could easily be found online. They trust her recipes. It doesn’t take too many failed recipes to realize that once you find a good source to stick with it. This is why some of her fans nominated her for the 2013 Best of Gluten Free Awards sponsored by Triumph Dining, as well others.
She began cooking gluten-free in 2005, when it was suggested that she was borderline gluten-intolerant. Shortly thereafter, she was diagnosed with Hashimoto’s Disease (which has been in remission for several years). Thinking that her thyroid problem must have been the cause of all her symptoms, she fell off the gluten-free wagon. After an injury in 2009, she was diagnosed with Transverse Myelitis, (inflammation of the spinal cord). Knowing that any type of chronic pain may benefit from a gluten-free diet, and with so many new gluten-free ingredients now available, she got back in the kitchen again, cooking and baking her way to joy. Because the gluten-free diet helped her chronic pain due to nerve damage, as well as her digestive issues, she decided to share a few of her recipes with the world. That is when her fans clamored for more, and Gluten Free Recipe Box was born. She offers her readers free advice and assistance with her own recipes, converting traditional recipes to gluten-free, and shares her gluten-free baking tips.
Carla’s goal is to not only share her knowledge of gluten-free cooking and baking, as well as her gluten intolerance research, but to make living a gluten-free lifestyle easier and appetizing for all. She resides in the lower foothills of Yosemite, 35 miles north of Fresno, California.
