Hi! I'm Nancy Davis, and I can't eat Gluten! I wasn't born this way, but became intolerant, and then allergic to Gluten when I was 29. Before then, I had worked in the food service industry for over 6 years. I have worked for many different kinds of food jobs including making sandwiches at Subway, to decorating cakes and baking doughnuts at Walmart bakery. I was even a barista for a few years in the casinos up in Blackhawk CO. When my husband and I became allergic, our whole world came crashing down! Until that point we had enjoyed the simple things in life, like eating out at any restaurant we wanted. Now we had nowhere that was "safe" to go and eat without the fear of cross contamination.
The hardest part for me during this time was not being able to bake, and enjoy the fruit of my labor. I have been baking and decorating since I was just a little girl scout. It's something I share dearly with my mother. We still love baking together even today. Learning how to modify the recipes I loved and relied on for so long took longer than I thought. It all started with my Banana Bread.
