Hi! I’m Jacqueline!
I write about chefs, and I bake with alternative ingredients.
Since the age of 12, I’ve lived with varying affects of Lyme Disease, which shaped my relationship with food from the moment I saw my first nutritionist and my body learned to heal itself through food and vitamin supplementation. I’ve been off gluten for decades now, but I’m the last to preach about the health or harm of a food for any human being other than myself. I use food as medicine, yoga and meditation as magic, and honest self-reflection to keep my illness at bay. I am aware of what I put into my body but do not “diet”, as food is my friend. Life’s all about the balance, folks.
I was on staff at the gluten-free Easy Eats magazine, where I built recipes, planned articles and curated and edited all blog content. For a bit I was a private “chef”, but now I’m content to build recipes for home dinner parties instead. For several years now I’ve interviewed some insanely inspiring chefs for various magazines and websites, pulling my work together on WordsFoodArt.com. I’m exhausted pretty much all the time nowadays, and am often on something to temper the pain, too, but overall I’m a pretty happy gal.
I don’t post on this site regularly anymore – my body is at a place where I can’t physically spend too much time on my feet in the kitchen, and the energy it takes for me to make a living as a writer often makes energy for much else minimal. But there are hundreds of recipes up here, so feel free to scroll through the categories (on the right, here) or try your luck with putting something in that handy search bar. And, of course, email me at firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any specific questions.
Thank you for visiting.
Wishing you peace, love and health,
