Stephanie is a Boston-based recipe developer and food photographer. She aims to write about delicious, approachable gluten-free recipes for every meal and occasion.

Stephanie has been living, eating, and cooking "gluten free" for several years after discovering that a myriad of seemingly unrelated health issues cleared up after removing gluten from her diet. The change in diet led Stephanie to completely redefine the way she ate and approached food. By embracing whole foods and naturally gluten-free foods in creative ways, a new world opened up for Stephanie in the kitchen, inspiring her to share her passion for gluten-free cooking with others. She is also a yoga instructor.


Stephanie Kirkos has a Bachelor of Arts in English from Union College, as well as a Master of Science in library and information science and a Master of Arts in history from Simmons University. She also has a certificate in marketing from Georgetown University.
