Annalise is one of the Food Philosophers®, two sisters who have collaborated to become a voice of reason in a world of mealtime disorder at After being diagnosed with celiac disease in late 2002, Annalise devoted herself to developing gluten-free baking recipes that taste just as good (if not better than) their wheat flour counterparts. Gourmet magazine featured several of her recipes in their November, 2005 issue. An expanded and revised edition of her best-selling book, Gluten-Free Baking Classics, was released in September 2008. Gluten-Free Baking Classics for the Bread Machine, a collection of recipes developed for the Zojirushi bread machine came next. Annalise and her sister, Claudia Pillow then joined forces to write The Gluten-Free-Good Health Cookbook, (released January 2010). The focus of this unique work is on managing daily food-related decisions in order to strengthen the immune system, prevent disease and lose weight by eating real food. It provides food choice explanations and guidance, cooking advice, and more than 140 flavorful, culturally diverse (gluten-free) recipes.

In 2007, Claudia Pillow received her Ph.D. in Health Studies from Texas Women's University but she has been studying and working with food for her entire life. Dr. Pillow is a classically trained chef and graduate of the New York Restaurant School, and worked as a chef and caterer for many years in the New York metropolitan area. An MBA offered her the opportunity to jump to the corporate side of the food industry, where she marketed cheese and natural beverages. Currently she lectures about gluten intolerance and teaches gluten-free cooking and baking classes in the Dallas/Fort Worth area. Dr. Pillow served on the board of the Gluten Intolerance Group of North America for several years and is a local resource for the North Texas chapter. Most recently, she chaired the first “Taste of Gluten-Free”, The Gluten-Free Makeover: A Healthier You! which took place at the Gaylord Texan in Grapevine, Texas on September 19, 2010. This major fundraising event attracted over 700 attendees, 20 local restaurants and 50 corporate contributors.
