18 of the very best gluten free recipes from 2018! There’s something for everyone with tried-and-true gluten free recipes the whole family will love!
2018 was a BIG year! It was the year I got my first cookbook deal! I spent a huge part of my spring and entire summer testing, writing, and photographing 75 gluten free and dairy free quick breads.
It was also an exhausting year, to say the least! But it was so worth it because in 2019, I’ll be holding my very own cookbook with my name on it – a huge accomplishment that was nothing short of a miracle and is definitely built on hard work plus some blood, sweat, and tears. People often compare writing a cookbook to birthing a baby.
After having two of my own children and writing a cookbook, I can attest that writing a cookbook might be slightly harder. My life was eat, sleep, bake, write, bake, bake, bake, bake, repeat. On top of the every day normal typical life stuff like raising children (my youngest was home with me during the process and both kids were home with me all summer), cooking them meals, getting them ready for school, making lunches, homework, swim lessons, soccer, dance recitals, birthdays, etc.
I was literally baking, photographing, and writing every spare second I had. Burning the midnight oil? More like burning the oil 24-7 for months on end.
BUT you guys — it’ll be so worth it to hold that book in my hands! It’ll be available for pre-order soon and will be publishing in April 2019. I CAN NOT wait! Keep your eyes peeled, my friends!
So lets talk about the gluten free recipes on the blog from 2018. There weren’t as many as usual, for obvious reasons. But the ones that I was able to publish, man are they good!
I’m looking forward to getting back into the groove and posting regularly now that I’ve taken some much needed time off from baking and keeping a strict social media posting schedule. I’ve got a lot of planning to do!
I also need to get back into shooting video again next year and I’m even contemplating doing some different style videos that what you’re used to seeing from me. I’ve been taking notes from my kids who love watching Kids YouTube videos and they know all the right things to say 😂
I’m also looking forward to sharing more baking tips and tricks and more general baking knowledge with you. My goal for this blog has always been to share gluten free recipes with you but over the years, I’ve niched down a bit more. My goal for What The Fork Food Blog has slowly morphed into teaching you how to make and bake gluten free treats (mostly from scratch) that even gluten eaters love and to help you feel confident while doing that.
I look forward to continuing this journey with you all in 2019 and I can’t wait to see where we are a year from now! If you want a quick blast to the past, you can check out the top posts from 2017, 2016, 2015, and 2014 – we’ve come a LONG way!
Cheers to baking in the new year, friends!
Oh, and in case you didn’t know, I’ve got a Gluten Free Baking Community on Facebook – I’d love for you to join!
