I am a wife and mom of 3. I enjoy playing with my kiddos, reading books, browsing cookbooks and cooking blogs, having coffee in the mornings with my husband,  spending time with my Mom and Dad, and generally being playful.

I love to cook, play with recipes, talk about food, and feed people.  I totally love finding recipes and making them healthier and sometimes, gluten free so that i can eat them 🙂  I enjoy the challenge of cooking gluten free and am thankful that doing so has made me and my family eat lots of healthy fruits and vegetables.

Jesus is my Savior and King and more than anything, I am grateful for Him.

  1. Great job Lovely ; I like your style !

  2. Bekah, love what you’re doing here! Everything looks so good – I might even try to cook something besides the same “regulars” we have week after week. Also, I have a friend that I just referred to your site for the gluten-free recipes.

    Keep up the good work 🙂

  3. Thanks for the encouragement, Julie. I have really enjoyed the process. . .
    Also, feel free to send me some of y’alls favorite recipes. Would love to try some and “feature” them. 🙂

  4. Please contact me this week (March 15) by email. I would like to discuss the possibility of using one of your recipes on our show.

  5. Thanks, Angel. I will send you an email. 🙂

  6. Love this site, which I accidentally discovered through another site, which is generally the best way to find anything wonderful – when you aren’t looking for it. Your recipes look wonderful, and the pictures are awesome. Wish I had seen the recipe for pizza crust before I went shopping and bought four of Udi’s, which are quite good, but they don’t bake up nearly as well as yours do, and they don’t look half as good as yours do. I like the rise that you got on yours, which is similar to the gluten version I bake for my husband and friends, and family. I am also grateful to Jesus for the life he has given to me, and the opportunity to grow as a person and become the person I was meant to be. I am delighted that you profess your faith freely and without reservations. It is refreshing and real, and I am so glad to have landed here. Food for the body and the soul is a powerful inducement! Blessings to you and your family.

  7. Happy to meet you. Many blessings to you and your family 🙂

  9. Thank you for your hard work to make this a great blog for those of us who are gf cooks!

    • My pleasure. Thanks for the words of encouragement. Sometimes it can be hard to know if it is helpful to anyone so I appreciate your feedback. 🙂

  10. It’s a fabulous blog. My (and your) hairstylist told me about it. I read every recipe yesterday. My sons, 18 and 23, have Celiac, so I do a lot of cooking. By the way, what size Taco Bell sauce do you use for your honey lime tostados? And where do you find it?

  11. Hey! so funny that you commented today. All my boys got haircuts from Carolyn this morning and she told me about you. Was excited to connect with you.
    In regards to the Taco Bell sauce: I just get the regular size bottle. It is not the taco bell salsa, but rather the bottle of their sauce that is just like what they serve in packets at the fast food restaurants. We generally purchase the mild variety. Publix carries it for about $1.50/bottle and WalMart usually has it for about $1/bottle. Hope you enjoy the tostadas! they are one of our family favs!

  12. The tostadas were great. Both boys liked them (which is a little unusual).

    Do you have a favorite sandwich bread recipe?

  13. Jan,
    I’ve never found a bread that i think is amazing, but this one tops my list of the MANY I have made:
    It has a pretty good texture (actually fantastic compared to the terrible stuff sold in most grocery stores) and it holds up to making a sandwich. Give it a try and see what you think.

  14. Jan, wanted to encourage you to not hesitate to try different bread recipes you find. If they flop (or are not that tasty) you can still use them for breadcrumbs in LOTS of recipes. Just pulse them in your food processor and store them in the freezer until you need them.

  15. I love your blog. Very good recipes. I turn to your blog when I want to cook something good. Thanks for your time and effort in making great recipes.

  16. Loyda, I’m so glad you enjoy it. Thanks for the feedback. It is always appreciated.

  17. Rebekah,
    I heard at GMS that you did gluten free foods; I asked and was given your website. My daughters and myself are all gluten intolerant, and we love to cook. I can’t wait to try some of your yummy sounding recipes. I’ll be in touch and I’ll refer my daughters to your website. Thanks for your recipes and pics.

  18. Diane,
    So glad we can share recipes. Please let me know if there is anything specific you are struggling to make or a recipe you are searching for. I’ll do my best to help! 🙂

    Hey Rebekah,
    Johab told me about your website at GMS, then I realized that you were a Henson and went to GHS! I hope all is well and cannot wait to try some of your recipes. Hope you guys have a wonderful holiday!

  20. hey elizabeth!! didn’t realize it was you he told me about!! fun. hope you enjoy some recipes too. let me know if there is anything I can help with. 🙂

  21. Hi Rebekah!

    I just wanted to thank you so much for publishing your pizza dough recipe. I am new to gluten free since February this year. I tried so many different ones and I couldn’t believe how great your recipe is! I just made two, ate one and froze the other! Big HUG for sharing!!

  22. Lovely pictures and lovely recipes! Keep it up.

  23. For your Perfect Pound Cake you have a Rice Flour Blend* (2 parts rice flour, 2/3 part potato starch, 1/3 part tapioca flour). What could I use to substitute Rice flour? I am intolerant to Rice, Corn, Spelt, Buckwheat, Soy

  24. Saw your fun blog and wanted to tell you about http://www.Treetarian.com
    My mom and I started it to try to inspire people to cook more with healthy, gluten-free, sugar-free foods from sustainable agricultural sources. I just posted a Healthy Chocolate Pumpkin Pie recipe if you want to check it out!

  25. So glad I found your blog! My husband has Celiac’s and numerous other food allergies as well as our daughter having peanut/nut/dairy allergies. I use Jules Gluten Free Flour in all of our favorite “regular” recipes and have been very happy with the results. No grainy textures in baked goods and when you use it for breading it’s super crispy and light 🙂

  26. Hey I have a question ; im new to blogging- is it okay if I ask you? where is your contact link?
