Hi, I'm Nicki

I'm a trained chef, recipe developer, food writer, and educator with nearly two decades of experience in the food industry. As a graduate of the International Culinary Center, I've worked in magazines, video production and as a writer. I'm the publisher of the newsletter and podcast, Mind, Body, Spirit, FOOD, and am the author of three cookbooks.

Pie has always been my very favorite dessert. It's what I asked for on my birthday every year growing up, and it later became one of my favorite things to make. When I had to cut gluten out of my diet over a decade ago, I set out to develop an easy gluten-free pie dough with minimal ingredients that tastes just like the original.

I'm so excited to share my passion for pie with you. My mission is to help you discover the joy and satisfaction in pie making, while creating something incredibly delicious with your own two hands. I hope you'll join me!

"I want to express my appreciation for the wonderful pie crust recipe you created and also for the great addition of making it into an online class. I found your site shortly before last Christmas when making preparations for the holiday meals, and really wanting to bake some GF pies. Have tried many crust recipes in the last 20 years (after being diagnosed as celiac) and they all failed to replicate the “gluten” versions. You, however, get the first place trophy for your recipe and technique. My pecan pies were a hit. No one could tell the flaky light crusts were actually GF!! Thank you so much!!"


"My grand daughter has celiac disease and I've been trying various gluten-free pie crust recipes for several years with very limited success. I tried yours for the Thanksgiving pies and this is the first recipe that actually worked! The dough was just as easy to roll out as the "real thing" with regular flour and everybody said the pies were yummy and they couldn't tell the difference. Unbelievable!"


"I have been baking gluten free pies for 5 years. This is by far the best crust sans gluten I’ve made."


The dough was easy to make, easy to work with and the crust turned out beautifully!
