I started this blog in 2013 when I took a 3 year break from my teaching career, but I am back to teaching high school social studies full time at a Christian school in Watsonville, California.
My husband Mitch and I are both from Pittsburgh, which is where we met, got married, and had our identical twin daughters. We lived in Orlando for 8 years, which is why this blog was originally named Gluten Free in Orlando. When I found out that we were moving to California in 2016, I renamed it Alexis's Gluten Free Adventures.
I would definitely consider myself to be a foodie. My whole family loves ethnic food, especially Italian. Both my husband and I grew up eating a lot of Italian food, because of the influence of our Italian grandmothers, and it's the main cuisine that I like to cook at home.
I am the only person in our family of four with celiac disease, but I have an aunt who was diagnosed with celiac many years before I was. I only cook gluten free meals in our house, but my husband and daughters eat gluten-filled foods when we dine out, and when they are at school.
This blog has been such a blessing to me, and I hope it is to you as well. I have made some great GFFs (gluten free friends), and I find myself trying new recipes and restaurants because of my blog.
You can contact me at email@example.com. Some day I might get around to changing the URL of this blog and my email address, but for now, it will remain the same.
Welcome to Alexis's Gluten Free Adventures!
