About us

Who we are

Howdy! My name is Christina and I am the main recipe developer, writer, and photographer here at A Gluten Free Plate! I have a severe gluten intolerance so all of my recipes are gluten free. I have a preference for vegetarian cooking and vegan baking, so you can also expect to find lots of tasty vegetarian and vegan recipes on my site.

Our philosophy on cooking

We aim to create easy recipes for people with dietary restrictions. Navigating the world with dietary restrictions is challenging enough by itself – no need to further complicate things with difficult recipes. We love to experiment with recipes by adding and removing ingredients to see what is really essential. If we think we can remove an ingredient without impacting the quality of the recipe – we will do it! We provide all the tips we can to prevent you from doing any unnecessary work or dishes!

Another pillar of our philosophy is that we want to teach techniques, not just recipes. We want to provide you with all the tools you need so that you can feel empowered to go out and create your own recipes!

Using our photos to promote our blog: Anyone is free to use up to one photo per blog post to promote our blog. We define promoting our blog as any use case where you clearly attribute the content back to our blog and include a link back to the original post. You must always include a link back to our site when you republish any of our content. Here are some examples of use cases where we allow our photos to be republished:

  • Compilations of recipes. If you are writing an article that compiles a list of recipes from across the web, such as an article on your ‘top 10 favorite fall recipes’, you are free to use one of our photos! Just make sure to link back to our website instead of posting the text of our recipe on your website.
  • General promotion. You are free to use up to one photo we publish anywhere on our blog as general promotional material for our blog. An example of this might be including our site in a post on useful resources for people with celiac disease.

Other recipe sites we love

Are you looking for more recipe ideas? Some other sites we love to look at for inspiration are Cookie and Kate, Isabel Eats, Laylita, and A Pinch of Yum. Note that most of these sites are not dedicated specifically to gluten free recipes, but many of their recipes can be easily adapted to be gluten free!
