Home: San Diego, California

Bio: Elizabeth Kaplan is the founder of The Pure Pantry, an allergen-free natural foods company that creates nutritious, great-tasting, and easy-to-use baking mixes. She is the author of Fresh from Fresh from Elizabeth's Kitchen: Gluten-free & Allergy-Free Recipes. When she was diagnosed with celiac disease in 2002, and subsequently her children were diagnosed with severe food allergies and gluten intolerance, she focused her passion for the culinary arts on gluten-free cuisine. Elizabeth teaches cooking classes that help others transition to a gluten-free lifestyle, lectures on topics related to gluten-intolerance, and writes a lifestyle blog in which she shares recipes, nutrition tips, entertaining and travel ideas, and her first-hand knowledge about raising children with food allergies. Her husband and three children all enjoy being her official taste testers for the recipes and products she creates.

My philosophy: Seize the day -- the gluten-free way

If I weren't doing what I’m doing now I’d be... A food critic, living in Paris with a roof-top garden.

Favorite piece of advice: Never use a microwave. --Alice Waters
