Hello and Welcome! I’m Nicki Sizemore, a food writer, recipe developer, video host and educator. My mission is to help busy families get fresh, wholesome and downright delicious food on the table any night of the week. All of my recipes are naturally gluten-free. 

I’m the author of Fresh Flavors for the Slow Cooker: Reinvent the Slow Cooked Meal (Storey Publishing, 2019), Build-a-Bowl: 77 Satisfying & Nutritious Combos: Whole Grain + Vegetable + Protein + Sauce = Meal (Storey Publishing, September 2018); and The Food Processor Family Cookbook (Sonoma Press, 2016). I’m also a contributor to Parents and Fine Cooking and am a video host and instructor for NBC Universal’s streaming platform Bluprint. In addition, I appear regularly on the PBS series, Moveable Feast. My work has been featured in publications such as The Washington Post, Eating Well, AllRecipes Magazine, Parade and Taste of Home.  

While I’m a trained chef and graduate of the French Culinary Institute (now called the International Culinary Center), I also have two young daughters and know first-hand the challenges of feeding our families (and picky kids)! I hope to help alleviate some of that pressure, offering vibrant, flavor-packed and adaptable recipes that will appeal to all eaters at the table. After discovering that I had to cut gluten out of my diet after my first daughter was born due to a severe allergy, I also understand how tricky it can be to accommodate food restrictions. All of my recipes are naturally gluten-free and many can be adapted to satisfy other allergies or diets.  

I truly love my job and feel so honored to have this space to share my passion with you! Please don’t hesitate to reach out to me with your questions or comments (or just to say hi!) here, on my YouTube channel, or on social media at @FromScratchFast. I can’t wait to create delicious food together. 

Work with me!

I love working with companies that align with my mission. For more information about my recipe development services, blog/video sponsorship opportunities, brand ambassadorships and affiliate opportunities, please contact me!
