About

Hi! My name is Clare! And I like to cook.

I also love traveling, dinner parties, baking, wine, hot sauce, any kind of Asian food, the Los Angeles Dodgers, tequila, dive bars, California, Eastern Europe, history, and my puppies.

I’m a California girl recently retired from a whirlwind life of travel, adventure and graduate school. I’m a dirty, hippie pescatarian. I’ve lived in 5 countries (Ireland, England, Italy, Hungary and the U.S. of A.). And this one time, I sailed around the world.

This is a blog dedicated to my (mis)adventures in the kitchen and the pursuit of perfecting the macaron something else equally as challenging…

Thanks for stopping  by my little piece of the internet!

Please feel free to contact me at clarecancook[at]gmail[dot]com. I would love to hear from you!

  4. Clare your blog is great….so manhy of my friends are going gluten-free and your site will enable me to still have them over for dinner without killing them…Thanks so much. Very well done!

    • Thanks! I actually thought the same thing when I first started cooking gluten free, but I realized how many meals or type of cuisines are naturally gluten free, and it became a lot easier!

  5. I’m a new subscriber of your blog. =) Found you through the Weekend Wander on For the Love of Blogs! http://www.krystalskitsch.com

  6. Great website! My mom suffers from similar food allergies, so I grew up eating a lot of gluten-free recipes without even knowing it. Glad you can share with the world that gluten-free isn’t a dirty phrase :)
