Pumpkin Seeds

I’ve carved two of my three pumpkins for the season. When carving the second one I thought I should save the seeds and roast them…something I’ve never done before. I had no clue what I was doing but I guessed and they came out pretty darn good I must say. A tasty little snack! Roasted…

Gluten Free Bagels

Last year for my birthday my sister gave me a subscription to Living Without Magazine. They have some great recipes in there and lots of articles and resources. However the October/November issue this year had a recipe called “Gluten Free, Dairy Free, Best Bagels”, of course I was dying to make these. I love Bagels,…

Zucchini Bread or Muffins

(Photo above is a muffin version of the recipe below used for my designing healthy desserts course: Served with spiced carrot granola, chai pear sauce, caramel mascarpone cheese, and candied carrot twist) Last week there was a party at work and someone had made zucchini bread. It looked and smelled so good but sadly I…

Cranberry Nut Scones

I adapted this recipe that I found on the Four Chickens Blog.  I had been searching for something to bake today and went back to her blog to see if I could find a recipe to use with her Gluten Free Flour Mix (see recipe below) and sure enough I found one. I took her…

Happy Birthday Rob

Seeing as Rob’s birthday is March 15th we decided that green frosting would go better with St. Patric’s day better than hot pink (plus I couldn’t find pink food coloring anywhere!) Rob…I hope you had a great birthday and you enjoyed your cake! And to everyone else…Happy St. Paddy’s Day!

Apple Crisp

I LOVE the Fall and everything about it: The Weather. The colors of leaves. The smell in the air. Sweaters. Hot apple cider. Hearing the leaves crunch under my feet as I walk. Apple picking. Pumpkins. Soup and lots of it. Most of all is Apple Crisp! I can’t live with out that come this…

I Heart Cupcakes!

Today I thought I would attempt to create a recipe and bake cupcakes. Boy was I wrong! I created a recipe and tried it, only for it to be thrown in the trash in the middle of baking. You know when you make cupcakes from a box (Or even from scratch)the batter is all nice…

I don’t have any of my own pictures to post yet but this weekend I made my first loaf of gluten free bread. And the best part…its not as bad as it sounds, actually its really tasty. I bought a bag of bread mix from Bob’s Red Mill and thought I would give it a…

Brownies

Ok I’m not a huge brownie person. Usually its just way to much chocolate for me, so unless there is nuts or peanut butter in there, I’ll pass. So yesterday when making the chocolate chip cookies again, I decided to try making brownies, and I must say they are pretty darn tasty… Gluten Free Brownies…

Chocolate Chip Cookies

Yay! Chocolate Chip Cookies…Gluten Free I had a sweet tooth really badly the other day, and thought I would try some gluten free baking. Well the cookies didn’t turn out very well, they were pretty much like hockey pucks. So last night I was determined to make them better, and they were. It was a…
