About the blog:
In April of 2012, I started the low FODMAP diet to manage my IBS. You can read more about that here.
I try to find recipes that I can easily adapt into my low FODMAP diet. But occasionally, the foodie in me takes over and I splurge on something delicious.
On my blog you’ll find recipes I’ve made up on my own, and recipes I’ve adapted from someone else. Sometimes I share favorite go-to recipes that I cook all the time, and sometimes I share recipes that I haven’t even attempted myself. Please let me know if you try something & hate it or love it!
More about me:
I am 26 years old, living in Ann Arbor, Michigan with my husband Kyle. We don’t have any kiddos yet, but hopefully will someday!
I wouldn’t be able to explain much about who I am without first starting with my faith. I am a follower of Jesus, and thankfully, can’t remember a day of my life when I didn’t know Him personally as my Savior and Lord. But it was during my four years in college that I finally understood clearly what it meant to have a relationship with God.
I also have the best job in the world (hehe). I get to spend the best hours of my day talking to young adult college students about Jesus. Kyle and I are full-time field missionaries with Cru and we even get to work at our Alma Mater, the University of Michigan (GO BLUE!). I love sharing the gospel with young women, and helping them grow in their relationship with God! (Ask me more about this anytime).
Other little facts…
Kyle and I both grew up in Metro Detroit, which makes visiting family really easy. We met while students at U of M, and we got married in May of 2009. We have been working with Cru since 2008. We bought our first house in Ann Arbor in August of 2011.
I love to bake, cook, craft, sew, and “figure stuff out.” I’m a problem solver by nature, and I love to learn new, practical things. My grandma is 100% Italian (Roman), so even though I am only 25%, I am really snobby about Italian food and I LOVE to cook. (Yes, I do really, really miss white pasta & sauce on low-fodmap! …secret: sometimes I cheat)
I love Michigan Football, even though I was raised in a Michigan State family. (The picture is during the UM Spring Scrimmage). I love being active but I have really bad sports hand-eye coordination so I stick to swimming, biking, & walking.
