Welcome! I'm Sherri, the primary recipe developer, writer and photographer behind Watch Learn Eat.
My husband, Greg, also helps with photography and is the official Watch Learn Eat taste-tester.
We're both natives of New Jersey now living in sunny Florida with our daughters, Londyn and Jovie.
I'm a former journalist and teacher and Greg currently sells RVs.
What kinds of recipes are featured on Watch Learn Eat?
On Watch Learn Eat, we share vegetarian and vegan recipes, most of which are also gluten-free.
I am a vegetarian living with three meat eaters, one of whom (Greg) is dairy-free, egg-free and gluten-free.
My specialty is making delicious gluten-free vegan versions of familiar favorites that everyone can enjoy...omnis and vegans alike! In fact, I like to make sure that my vegan recipes are omnivore-approved which is why in addition to my family, I share samples with friends and neighbors for feedback.
I have been passionate about all things cooking since childhood and first learned to cook from my dad, who is 50% Italian. Therefore, Italian-American cuisine was a huge part of my life growing up. We ate lots and lots of ricotta, mozzarella, Romano, Parmesan, pasta, risotto, meatballs...you get the picture.
Telling my father I was serving him a lasagna with a pasta made of lentils and a "ricotta cheese" made from nuts gave the poor man some serious agita. I think he thought I was nuts...lol. However, once he tasted it AND took seconds, he was totally down with it.
Whether you're an omnivore looking to incorporate more plant-based foods, a flexitarian, a vegetarian, a vegan or follow a gluten-free and/or dairy-free diet, you'll be sure to find recipes to suit your tastes.
If you're new to the world of gluten-free and vegan/vegetarian eating and cooking, you've come to the right place! All of the recipes include step-by-step instructional photographs and detailed directions to make them easy to follow and approachable. I also often include product recommendations when possible to help in the process.
What else will I find on Watch Learn Eat?
In our resources section, you'll find recommendations for my favorite cooking tools and equipment, a guide to stocking your gluten-free vegan pantry and more.
I also create vegan-themed (and vegetarian-themed) designs for t-shirts, tote bags and more which you can check out in our Threadless shop.
And if you're interested in receiving recipe updates by email, you can also sign up for our e-newsletter.
