About Karen Morgan

Karen Morgan

Determined not to give up her favorite bread and pastries after her diagnosis of celiac disease, Karen Morgan got creative in the kitchen. Soon thereafter, she opened her gluten-free online bakeshop, Blackbird Bakery, in Austin, Texas, and published her cookbook Blackbird Bakery Gluten-Free.@blackbirdbakes
