Welcome to The Gluten Freestyle. My name is Kim Rozsa. I began baking gluten free more than 20 years ago, when my daughter was diagnosed with celiac disease. In 1997, gluten free was nearly unheard of, and as you can imagine, gluten free foods were not readily available at your local grocery store. Telling my two-year-old that she could no longer have bread, crackers, pasta or cookies was heartbreaking. I knew that something had to be done, so my adventures in gluten free baking began! Now, with more than 20 years of gluten free baking and experimenting with recipes under my belt, I am always excited to share my delicious recipes with others. It is not at all uncommon for someone to eat one of my baked goods and ask me, with a surprised look on their face, if Iā€™m sure what they are eating is gluten free. Everyone deserves to eat delicious foods and I am thrilled to be able to help you do just that!
