I'm Allison Kuslikis. Welcome to A Sweetened Life, a brand committed to restoring joy and taste back in the kitchen with all gluten-free and dairy-free recipes. Seven years ago, I was diagnosed with a gluten-allergy and my life was turned upside down. My gluten-free diet began in a fog of confusion. As a single young woman, paying student loans and planning a big wedding, I didn’t have time to dive into all the foods that were and weren’t gluten-free. Social gatherings that once were fun and light hearted became awkward, difficult, and took a lot of planning.
