Welcome to Mile High Mitts!
Mile High Mitts is here to provide simple baking recipes, to empower you to feel confident about your baking, at any altitude!
Mile High Mitts started in May of 2018 to share my recipes with other people who wanted to bake something, but faced the challenge of baking in high altitude and/or baking gluten-free. Baking doesn’t have to be hard, even at high altitude. And gluten-free baking doesn’t have to be hard either!
I’m Chelsea, the Mom wearing the Mitts.
I grew up in a classic Midwestern household, helping my mom cook and bake in the kitchen since I was old enough to stand up on a step-stool. I was raised on home-cooked meals, and my Mom was often baking something from scratch.
But after some health issues started in high school, I started looking for ways to eat healthier so I could feel better. As I eliminated different foods from my diet during my search, I learned more about gluten intolerance decided to try a gluten-free diet. After a week of eating gluten-free, my health changed drastically, and I’ve never looked back.
I’ve embraced a gluten-free diet as a challenge. Don’t think you can make a delicious gluten-free pie crust? It’s possible. What about gluten-free cinnamon rolls? Yes, you can make those too. All it takes is a little practice and a few tricks up your sleeves.
I’m here to save you from all the dirty work. I love sharing gluten-free recipes that you can count on, including healthy breakfast recipes, fun drinks, and decadent desserts.
If I had to play favorites, I’d recommend checking out my:
- Gluten-free Chocolate Granola
- Gluten-free Chocolate Chip Cookies
- Gluten-free Cinnamon Swirl Banana Bread
- High Altitude Vanilla Cake (gluten-free option)
- Classic Cornbread (gluten-free & dairy-free options)
- Blue Margarita
“Mile High Mitts” was named Mile High after Colorado.
While I grew up as an Army brat, Colorado has been my home for over ten years now and I am totally in love with it. My husband is a Colorado native, my bearded mountain man, and is what I like to call my Swiss army knife. If you need anything, he’s got your back!
I have two kids, under 6, who keep me pretty busy on the day-to-day. My favorite things include eating (duh!), baking, reading, puns, sarcasm, hiking, hot chocolate, margaritas and movies.
Oh, and why Mile High Mitts? Well, I’m not sure I could go a day without using my oven mitts!
Thank you for checking out Mile High Mitts. I hope you and your family enjoy my recipes as much as my family does!
