Instagram post 2325878837572790121_257125671 Saying what I need to below and then I’m putting my phone down + continuing to read @laylafsaad’s book #MeAndWhiteSupremacy. I strongly feel that I need to be quiet right now and I’m only posting today so it’s clear where I stand and where this business stands. ⁠
⁠
- - - - - ⁠
For a while, I’ve been thinking about the role of business in making change, but in the context of the horrific events of this past week, I’ve been thinking hard about my responsibility as a business owner.⁠
⁠
My personal and professional insecurity about how, when, and if it’s appropriate to talk about racism and injustice on this platform cannot be left open for misinterpretation, or delayed any longer. ⁠
⁠
I’m watching, listening, pausing, processing, researching, reading, donating, writing, and running both GFBA/GFCS courses now. And as I continue to develop how YumUniversity ventures forward as a force for good in this world, I’ll do so committed to being an ally for black and indigenous people, as well as people from all minority groups.⁠
⁠
I’ve learned that building a business that’s welcoming for all is not enough. I’ve learned that good intentions are not enough. Kindness is not enough.⁠
⁠
My work brings people together and empowers them to get cooking, but my heart knows that this support can go beyond the kitchen. I can do more, and my business can do more. ⁠
⁠
I’m confident that I won’t always do it right, but that’s how the work gets done. And I’m committed to doing the uncomfortable work necessary. ⁠
⁠
My ears, eyes, and heart are open to plan and act for the long-term, not just right now. ⁠
⁠
With all the privilege I’ve experienced in this lifetime, I’ve learned that it’s also a privilege that I can further educate myself about racism without having to experience it firsthand. ⁠
⁠
I won’t deny or squander that privilege.⁠
⁠
Love.⁠

Tip: Beet stalks and beet greens make a delicious sauté so don’t throw away! Oil, lemon, garlic, pinch of salt, done. ⁠

Instagram post 2315551859241415277_257125671 One of many things we love about cooking—it’s ability to connect us to each other and to tradition, not to mention decades of good intention and good food cooking energy. 💕

It’s the catalyst for why @glutenfreebakingacademy was built. It was a simple staple that was truly missed (thanks, gluten allergies) and that needed to change. 7 years later, we’re still teaching bakers of all kinds to make flatbreads, quick breads, yeasted breads, and sourdough from home. All recipes are whole-grain, gum-free, and dairy-free (and that includes egg-free). You can get a course tour in the bio link to see if we’re a good fit for you. ⁠

⁠
This is the last week to enroll in @glutenfreebakingacademy‘s #GlutenFreeBread Course where you’ll not only learn how to make these cinnamon rolls, but also all the flatbreads, quick breads, yeasted breads, and sourdough, too. All recipes are whole-grain, gum-free, and dairy-free (and that includes egg-free). You can get a course tour in the bio link to see if we’re a good fit for you. ⁠
