Scandinavian Almond Cookies & the Last Post for 2017!

I can’t believe it but this is the last post for 2017.  Together we have baked many sweet and many savory gluten-free foods.  It has been especially rewarding for me as my family (finally) went completely gluten-free–not just those who had to.  My kitchen is more organized and more fun for me this way.  I […]

Cranberry Pumpkin Bread–a Holiday Treat!

It is almost the holidays and my house seems full of goodies and sweets.  I usually make pumpkin pecan bread but was intrigued with the idea of adding cranberries to the mix.  Cranberries are a learned taste because they temper the overall sweetness, and I’m all for that.  This little quick bread give me diversity […]

Peppermint Biscotti and Chocolate Chip Biscotti for Your Holiday Trays

It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas–and it’s getting cold too!  I don’t mind baking when it warms my house and heart getting ready for holiday parties.  I usually deliver several trays to friends, neighbors and family over the next few weeks.  I especially enjoy having several types of cookies to arrange on these […]

Heavenly Caramel Christmas Cookies–Yum!

Ok, I know you are going to think I’m crazy with this recipe because you start out baking graham crackers the day before so you can make these delicious holiday cookies.   But, really, I’m not.  I have been baking my own gluten-free graham crackers for a couple of years now, and they are the only […]

Blueberry Pancake Casserole for a Crowd

Do you have company coming for some of the holidays?  Breakfast for a crowd can be overwhelming sometimes, but this recipe is quick, easy, gluten-free and delicious.  And it feeds a crowd!  I was drawn to it because it uses ingredients I usually have on hand–anytime of the year.  We love blueberries and eat them […]

Ginger, Maple and Macadamia Nut Cookies–G-F and Delicious!

When I was growing up, we would not have many desserts between Thanksgiving and Christmas.   There were so many parties and so much food that we didn’t seem to miss them.  However, we did have fruit and ginger cookies in our school lunches.  It was the one goodie allowed because ginger was supposed to settle an […]

Savory Pumpkin Fritters

I was told they other day that not everyone likes sweet stuff!  News flash!  I knew that but at this time of the year–after Halloween, before Thanksgiving and Christmas, everything is all about sweet foods for celebrations.  I have to admit, I’m sugared out!  So I went on a crusade to research more savory and […]

Peanut Butter Pie in Chocolate Cookie Crust–Yum!

The week after Halloween is not a time of inspiration for me.  I think I’m just overwhelmed with candy.  Usually I don’t bake anything sweet for a while at this time–just too much for me to process.  However, we have a friend who was celebrating a special birthday, so I was asked to make something […]

Pepperoni Pizza Dip with Gluten-Free Pizza Crust Dippers

Weekends in our house now revolve around what teams are playing football on Saturday or Sunday.  Family and friends often gather to watch exciting competitions together, and food is a necessary ingredient to our enjoyment.  Last weekend this tasty snack–a dip with gluten-free dippers–won me some lovely compliments.  Little did most people know, most of […]

Pumpkin Cupcakes for Halloween!

Holidays are often difficult for people with food allergies.  This is especially true for kids in the school setting.  We have a friend whose son is allergic to eggs.  They also eat clean and don’t use flour often.  Fortunately, he has eaten at my house occasionally and his mom says he never has problems with […]
