Frequently Asked Questions
Are all of your recipes gluten-free?
Yes! Of course. All of my recipes on the blog are gluten-free. Just remember to double-check labels as ingredients and products can change.
Do you have gluten and dairy-free recipes?
Yes, I do! You can find all the recipes that are both gluten and dairy-free right here.
Do you have egg-free, vegan, or allergen-free recipes?
Since I have celiac disease and IBS, my recipes are all 100% gluten-free. I also have some dairy-free recipes, but that's it. I don't do egg-free, vegan, or allergen-free recipes. Sorry!
Are all of your recipes original?
The majority of my recipes are my own creations, but there are some I have adapted to be gluten-free, dairy-free, or I've added my own variations. I always give credit to the original recipe creator and link to their recipe. You'll see that listed in the recipe itself with the words "Adapted from".
Can I substitute my own gluten-free flour in your recipes?
You can, but be advised: not all gluten-free flour blends are created equal. They can react differently based on the recipe. Double-check my notes in the recipe itself.
I normally recommend Cup4Cup for gluten-free pastries and desserts, and Bob's Red Mill or King Arthur Measure For Measure for a dairy-free version in quick bread/muffins. Please note every flour blend has its pros and cons, and due to their very different ingredients, can change the outcome of a recipe completely. Please do not substitute a single gluten-free grain and expect your recipes to turn out as mine do. My recipes always use a blend of gluten-free grains, flours & thickeners in a gluten-free flour blend, unless stated otherwise.
My recipe didn't turn out right. What did I do wrong?
I'm not in the kitchen with you, so I'm not sure. Did you follow the recipe exactly? Did you use the gluten-free flour I recommended? If you are baking, are you baking on a warm or cold day? Are you a beginner, intermediate, or novice in the kitchen? All of these factors play into whether a recipe will turn out correctly. If you have trouble, leave a comment (please be kind), or send me an email to [email protected] and I'm happy to troubleshoot.
I went to one of the restaurants you recommended in a travel guide and they no longer have safe gluten-free options!
As I state at the beginning of every travel guide, restaurants can change, and everyone's health is different. Always double-check that a restaurant works for you and your needs by verifying with the restaurant itself before you go.
I'm new to the gluten-free lifestyle. Can you help me?
I'm a gluten-free product/brand/restaurant with a possible collaboration idea. How can I get in touch?
Thanks for your interest! Please check out this page for ideas of how we can work together and get in touch.
Do you do guest posts or backlink swaps?
No. Please do not email me for backlinks or guest posts. If you are interested in collaborating in a way to support the gluten-free community, please check out this page. If you are a brand looking to benefit off my years of hard work as a blogger, the answer is no. Ask someone else.
Can I link to your recipe on my website/blog?
You can link to my recipes provided you give proper credit. Please make sure to credit the recipe by linking back to www.thenomadicfitzpatricks.com or the recipe itself. Thank you!
Thank you so much for being here.
