Welcome to The Almond Flower. A site dedicated to gluten-free, grain-free and sugar-free baking and cooking; and a few other things here and there.
I live with my husband Chris, our three legged-rescue dog-pit mix, Clover, and our new baby boy, James August in Alexandria, VA. My parents met in High School in Waynesboro, VA, nestled in the Shenandoah Valley. Growing up our family visited my grandparents often and I have a deep-seated love for small towns, farm land and mountains. I'm artsy and creative, I'm in my tenth year of teaching elementary art for Fairfax County and I'm passionate about grain-free baking.
The Almond Flower began as a place for me to have a voice and to connect to others. I love baking with almond flour and honey because it’s simple, satisfying and tasty. Eating gluten, grain and sugar free helps me feel really good, encourages my body's healing process, and allows me to still enjoy life through food.
My dream, and one big goal for 2015, is to start a gluten, grain and sugar-free baking company. Follow along to see me get there!
