Hi! I’m Jacqueline!

I write about interesting humans (so, everyone), I host a radio show, and I have a long history of baking delicious things for others. 

Since the age of 12, I’ve lived with varying long-term effects of Lyme disease (I don’t have it actively right now). This shaped how I eat from the moment my body learned to heal itself through food and vitamin supplementation. I’ve been off gluten for decades, but I’m the last to preach about the health or harm of a food for any human being. I have continually ongoing relationships with sugar, dairy, nightshades, and other foods that affect my body as my illness ebbs and flows. I am aware of what I eat but do not “diet”, as I still consider my friend.  Life’s all about the balance, folks.

“Let food be thy medicine and medicine be thy food.”
Hippocrates

For several years now I’ve worked with some insanely inspiring chefs for various magazines and websites, pulling my work together on WordsFoodArt.com (you can find my portfolio here). I was on staff at the gluten-free Easy Eats magazine, where I built recipes, wrote features and curated/edited their blog content. For a bit, I was a private “chef”…now I’m content to cook lavish meals for friends. And I’m the producer and co-host of Love Bites on the food-focused Heritage Radio Network, where we explore “why and how we love.”

I don’t post on this site anymore – my energy now focuses on telling the stories of others. 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 that handy search bar. Please keep in mind that most of the personal information on the site is a bit outdated, so connect with me on Instagram and Twitter if you’re curious about my current goings on. And, of course, email me at jacqueline@thedustybaker.com if you have any specific questions about the recipes or me!
