About Jess

My name is Jessica Schlangen. I am a special education teacher with a bit of a cooking obsession. I may or may not DVR cooking shows and I have a pretty large cookbook collection. I am certainly not a foodie, but I like to cook, eat, and share delicious meals with the people that I love.

This blog is my attempt to share my gluten free creations with you. You will also find reviews of gluten free products and restaurants with gluten free menus. All of my recipes are gluten free, but they can be enjoyed by people that follow a typical diet as well. There are a variety of reasons that people choose to remove gluten from their diets, but I do not recommend that it is something you take lightly. This is a decision that I worked with my doctor on due to some health concerns I was experiencing along with a family history.


I live in Minnesota with my husband. We just got married in July 2015 (check out Gluten Free Jess Got Married) after dating for 10 and 1/2 years!! Even though I had to wait FOREVER to get some bling out of the guy…he is a keeper. Plus, he is the taste tester for all of my cooking experiments. The other love of my life is Oliver, our 1 year old golden retriever.


I hope you enjoy my recipes and random thoughts!

    Thank you for recently stopping by my blog! I am very new to cooking and baking gluten free, but am excited to start learning about it for those times when I am fixing food for people who need to eat that way. I also DVR cooking shows and love cookbooks. I look forward to learning about gluten free cooking from you.
