Hi there! I'm Olivia—the recipe developer, food photographer, and writer behind Olivia's Kitchen. I love creating healthy meals and indulgent desserts for the home cook. I believe we should honor our cravings to live a deliciously balanced life. Find out more about my background and journey with food on my About Me page!
I have a particularly strong sweet tooth and love to create decadent desserts balanced out with some savory mains, sides, and snacks. While I am no longer eating a strict gluten-free diet, I come from a background of gluten-free cooking and baking for 5 years due to an intolerance. I prioritize creating easily modified recipes so that everyone can enjoy. Allergy-free doesn't have to be fun-free!
Prior to my May 2023 re-brand to Olivia's Kitchen, this blog was called Liv Gluten-Free.
I've also fallen in love with the food photography and content creation part of the blogging process. I get such enjoyment from creating beautiful, mouth-watering images that make my viewers immediately click to get the recipe. You can view my portfolio to see some of my work, and check out all of my developed recipes too.

Ways to Work Together
I love to align Olivia's Kitchen with brands and businesses that share the same value of enjoying delicious food while living a healthy balanced life. I would be thrilled to work together and create deliciousness in some of the following ways:
I'm always thinking of creative new recipe ideas. (Seriously, you should see my running list!) I'd be happy to conceptualize, test, photograph, and/or write custom recipes featuring your brand or product. While I am now happily able to create with any ingredients/diet in mind, I come from a background in gluten-free cooking and baking for 5 years, and can provide specific expertise on allergy-friendly recipes.
Allow me to create, style, photograph, and edit pictures featuring your brand or product—either to share with my audience or to use on your own.
Available via post and/or story on Instagram, TikTok, or a blog post on oliviaskitchen.com, sponsored content is a great way to introduce your brand or product to my audience of female North American foodies and bakers.
Freelance Food Content
I am available for hire to work with your brand or business independently. This could include recipe development, food photography, or consulting with the interests of your business in mind.
I'm in the kitchen a lot, so there are many tools and products that I use on a daily basis. If you think our values align, I would love to consider a brand ambassadorship opportunity to showcase your products.
Local Restaurant Photography
If you are a small business, bakery, or restaurant in Toronto, contact me to discuss how I can create a portfolio of beautiful stock images featuring your dishes for use on your website, menus, socials, and/or marketing materials. Drool-worthy images = hungry customers = thriving business!

Olivia's Kitchen offers a broad title to showcase all of my favorite recipes including: appetizers, drinks, snacks, mains, breads, desserts, baked goods, and more! I love to create healthy, satisfying meals to live a balanced life with delicious, indulgent desserts.
From July 2020—May 2023, this blog was called Liv Gluten-Free (livglutenfree.com). As a play on words with my name Olivia, nickname Liv represented both myself and the general community that lives gluten-free. My mission was and still is to prove that living gluten-free does not have to be fun-free!
I chose to re-brand from livglutenfree.com to oliviaskitchen.com in order to serve a wider audience. All of my 100% gluten-free recipes are still here and are not going away. I love to prove through my recipes that allergy-free cooking/baking does not have to be fun-free!
Since learning that I can in fact now consume gluten, I feel inspired to create a wider variety of recipes to include regular breads, baked goods, and even sourdough! There is something for everyone in Olivia's Kitchen.

It is very important to read my blog posts fully. I include tested ingredient substitutions, tips, tricks, and helpful techniques along the way. It is also important to use the ingredients suggested in the recipe. Gluten-free baking can be quite finicky, so please use the recommended ingredients and techniques when specified.
Yes! Estimated nutrition facts are provided at the bottom of each recipe card. I am currently working on updating older posts to include more helpful information, including nutrition facts.
