Hey- my name is Faith Wise and I am the founder of Gladly Gluten Free

I have a degree in restaurant administration from Oklahoma State University while my husband has a degree in Nutritional Sciences—the perfect combination!

I believe in taste first, and worked very hard to create a course that works for every gluten-free soul. YOU deserve to have the recipes and tutorials based around every holiday, every snack, dessert, and dinner—WITHOUT having to waste all your time and money on recipes that don’t turn out and gross tasting store bought brands.

My Story

kitch.jpg

Ever since i was a little girl…

I’ve had a huge passion for food. I LOVE being in the kitchen cooking, baking, and eating.

I discovered I have celiac disease 8 years ago, meaning I can’t eat gluten! This explained so much for me—all the sickness, hives, and the ongoing stomach pain. All I could think though, is why me?? I love food more than anyone and I am the least picky eater ever! (Really, I’ll eat anything!) This began to crush all my dreams of cooking. If I can’t taste the recipes I create, then what’s the point of creating them??

 
 
 

BLECK!

Beginning to buy gluten free boxed food at the store and basically any gluten free food? IT WAS HORRIBLE! I became discouraged and reached the settling state. I was miserable with all the new foods I was restricted to and now nothing I made that was gluten free turned out right. Even finding gluten free recipe blogs—some were great, but it was a hit or miss… a lot of them were lies and just didn’t turn out like the picture and didn’t taste like the description….

I was NOT okay with settling—

I was determined to begin my next 7 year journey dedicated to trial and error until I could figure it out! Gluten free and non-gluten free people believe GF=GROSS.

I have dedicated my time to proving this theory WRONG!

 
 

Failure

I am so lucky to have a mom that had the time and money to spend on me when we found out I had celiac disease. She began this journey with me spending countless days in the kitchen and endless amounts of food being thrown out—failure after failure, ingredient after ingredient, we slowly began to learn what to use for what. THIS is why I am here for YOU! Not everyone has the time to spend on trial and error until they want to rip their hair out because nothing works until the 8th time of purchasing flour and pastas and ingredients. Not everyone has the MONEY that adds up over the course of a year of you constantly throwing gross food out that didn’t turn out like your old recipes did, or snacks that taste like cardboard. So much money goes STRAIGHT down the drain for 5-10 years due to a lack of resources and knowledge of what to buy and what to use for certain recipes.

SAVE YOURSELF FROM THE FRUSTRATION!


Success!

Let me tell you… I LOVE cinnamon rolls. Homemade ones. ABSOLUTELY LOVE.

I think it is the funnest thing to make AND yummiest thing to eat. All the way from starting up that mixer, to putting that flaky, sweet bite in your mouth, they are 100% satisfying.

I will never forget the day we discovered FINALLY how to perfectly make the dough. One of the most exciting things of my life was being able to perfectly roll up that dough—we couldn’t BELIEVE it was a gluten free creation.

As we anticipated the turn out of those beautiful cinnamon, glazy rolls, we came to discover the truth.


The truth

THAT GLUTEN FREE HOMEMADE CINNAMON ROLLS ARE NOT SOMETHING WE HAVE TO SETTLE ON.

I ate those warm cinnamon rolls with happy tears in my eyes and a cheesy grin on my face. Not only did I have a cinnamon roll recipe…….. I knew I now have any recipe for making dough! This dough is PERFECT.

I regret believing the LIE that eating gluten free wouldn’t ever be amazing! This turned into the start of figuring out all the tips and tricks YOU AND I NEED for being gluten free.

My favorite recipes are the holiday ones—you don’t have time to make gluten free things that might turn out bad during holiday seasons!

Save yourself—I got you.
