I’m Nicole Spiridakis, a writer, editor, cook, (erstwhile wedding cake) (and often vegan/gluten-free) baker, and runner. I currently live in Northern California with my husband and daughters Sierra and Elspeth.
Previously we lived in Sydney, Australia, Riyadh, Saudi Arabia, and Casablanca, Morocco, as a Foreign Service family and part of the U.S. mission abroad. Previous to that I lived, wrote, and cooked in San Francisco.
I’ve written about food — as well as life in a tiny apartment and the occasional travel piece — for various outlets; clips are available on my writing site at nicolespiridakis.com. My cookbook, Flourless. Recipes for Naturally Gluten-Free Desserts, was published by Chronicle Books in August 2014.
For several years I documented my weekly Sunday dinners, and shared a sweet treat each week in a series titled The Tuesday Treat. (Click the links to see more in each category.) I also posted regular “Wordless Wednesday” snapshots of my daily life in and out of the kitchen.
