Hello! I'm so glad you're here!

I’m an actor, comic, voice overer, podcaster, and cookbooker. I like hiking, books, cocktails, and Italy, and I love my husband, daughter, and dog. If you laugh at my jokes, we’ll probably be fast friends. If you make me laugh, we’ll probably be best friends.

Here’s where I share my recipes, professional work, and stuff that makes me happy…like my two fantastic gluten-free, grain-free cookbooks…or my newly-released Eat Happy Kitchen marinara sauce!

Celiac and Gluten Free since 2002, I started this website to recreate gluten-free versions of comfort food favorites from my half-Italian, half-Southern Girl heritage.

In 2012, I partnered with the inimitable Vinnie Tortorich to co-host and produce The Fitness Confidential Podcast, and my recipes these days are mostly free from sugars and grains — the Vinnie term is NSNG — No Sugars No Grains.

I use fresh ingredients whenever possible, and I keep things simple. Though I avoid sugars and grains 95% of the time, I’m not a machine. I have a heart and hormones like any other lass. 

You’ll find gluten-free sweets on this blog (GASP!) because I believe that if you are gonna treat yourself, do it right by doing it from scratch.

In my book, real food wins every time over counting calories and macros and eating fake diet shakes, powders, potions, and artificial sweeteners.

Sometimes I’ll review products I’ve purchased or have been given to me, but I will never endorse a product just ’cause they pay me. There is no conflict of interest to be found within these pages. It’s just the personal viewpoint of a very opinionated GF loudmouth, and I hope you enjoy your time here.
