about this blog

I do not profess to be an authority on all things Paleo, gluten-free, or dairy-free. Nor am I a trained food professional.  I'm a home cook who loves food and cooking and eating. More than anything, I love sharing food and my thoughts about food with others and hearing what they have to say.

What you will find on these pages is a journal of sorts of my trials and successes exploring a way of eating and cooking that has now become my lifestyle. This is a fairly new adventure for me, as I have only been gluten and dairy-free for a little less than three years and following Paleo principles for not much more than one.  Hence the "out of water" portion of the title. Like many of us, I've known much, much longer that I needed to make drastic changes. I believe I have pretty much made an art form out of sticking my head in the sand. But that is over, and we're out of water at our house one day, one meal at a time.

I've learned a lot and will, most assuredly, continue to learn much more about shopping, cooking, and eating with restrictions. I love to play with food and will continue to do that every chance I get. There is absolutely nothing about gluten-free, dairy-free, or grain-free that requires it be boring or dull. I will apologize up front for what I know from experience will be occasional bouts of whining when I contemplate really good cheeses and whipping cream. Those moments pass, and what remains is a continued passion for all things edible...okay, most things edible.

I hope you'll join us here and comment as often as the spirit moves you. Hopefully, we can all learn and play by sharing what works, what doesn't, and what's just plain fun for each of us.
