Tiffany HInton
Tiffany Hinton

As an adult with health issues, Tiffany learned she was gluten and lactose
intolerant. This turned her life upside down. Not knowing where to start
she found pre-made gluten free items overpriced and she still wanted to
eat family favorites. Experimenting in the kitchen began with research and
practice. Tiffany can now turn any desirable recipe into gluten and dairy
free, without sacrificing the taste. Tiffany started blogging in June of
2010, while going through treatments for infertility. Like many others;
she struggled to talk about her experience, leading to an online journal
for sharing emotions and heart. Following the birth of her first child she
began to share gluten free substitutes for her favorite family recipes on
her blog After three children in just three years,
gluten free cooking has become a necessity. Discovering she was not alone
in the challenge to feed a gluten free family, opened the path to writing
Gluten Free Mom Certified. She creates and shares GF recipes each week on
her blog to help GF mothers meet the challenge of GF cooking. Tiffany’s
mission persists today to re-create the foods she grew up eating, into
gluten and dairy free.
