Hi! I’m Sonia, I’m from Liguria, in northwestern Italy and welcome to my little corner of the world, where I share gluten free allergy-friendly recipes!
Sweet Sensitive Free is a few years old now. Its name is a way to sum up Sweet goodies (but you will find savory too, worry not!) for food Sensitive fellows who want to enjoy a tasty Free-from life.
It all started as a way of sharing my journey with the gluten free cooking experiments I make for my own personal taste-tester, as well as food-sensitive boyfriend.
He is sensitive to gluten, dairy, corn and eggs (certified organic ones are a rare allowed exception). Though I have come to understand my own intolerances too, as with time I’ve learnt I have to limit dairy myself and yeast too.
The struggle is real. You will probably know the feeling. And we are also not much of meat eaters either. So not only coming up with cooking ideas can be a burden, but finding the right places to eat out can be SO much fun too! Ugh. Or is it just us? *le sigh*
I constantly experiment with the “allowed” ingredients. And often after OH SO many failures (you know, the good old cakes that won’t rise … doughs that don’t stick together ... and oh, questionable flavors too...), whenever I’m sure my gluten free recipes are perfected, I share them here on the blog with you and for you.
My aim is to make your gluten free life easier and tastier, while sparing you the painful process of testing and re-testing and throwing away dozens of weird doughs or inedible baked stuff.
As you will notice, I have a preference for homemade gluten free flour blends. Reasons being that they are healthier - as they contain no added sugar or thickeners - and you know what you put in them.
Also, they can be made and used all over the world. You won’t need a specific store bought flour brand that maybe you can’t find in your corner of the globe.
There still can be a few recipes with store bought blends, as they sure can be handy, but yeah, I prefer homemade 😉
The recipes on the blog are all gluten free and mostly vegan as is, as they are also dairy free and egg free, but they can include meat and fish options too. Everyone is welcome here 😉
You will also find yeast free options, as yeast sensitivity often goes hand in hand with gluten intolerance.
I’m always up for learning and improving, as gluten free cooking and living is a never ending journey!
So if you have a tip for me, doubts and questions about any of my recipes, or you just want to say hi, don’t hesitate to get in touch via e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org and I’ll be super glad to chat!
