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 […]

Gluten-Free Lemon Tea Loaf–Yum!

I find it very helpful to have a recipe for a quick and easy loaf that can be served as a desert or a snack.  I’m involved in several groups that have pot luck meals at meetings and I always want to be able to bring a gluten-free treat.  This lovely lemon tea loaf is […]

Apple Cobbler and Sweet Sauce–a very old recipe made gluten-free

Of course, in the fall I get requests for apple dishes.  This is one my husband always wants me to make.  It was one his mother made regularly for his family.  She didn’t like to cook much but she loved to bake–and she was a very good baker!  She never refused to share her recipes […]

Spicy Gluten-Free Cheese Snacks

Sometimes my family just needs something crispy to munch on! This is my go to recipe since it makes up fast and I can keep some in the freezer (either unbaked as a log or baked).   We like the added zip of the spicy pepper.  It seems to punch up the Cheddar cheese flavor. […]

Savory Oat Scones–Taste like Everything Bagels!

Do you remember the flavors that we used to enjoy when we had “everything” bagels?  You know, before going gluten-free?  Well here is an amazing recipe for a light as air scone with the seasoning that is used on “everything” bagels.  It really hits the spot if you miss that old favorite.  And, to my […]

Tomato, White Bean and Basil Casserole–Another Harvest Recipe

One of the best things about the end of Summer is the harvest of wonderful, flavorful tomatoes available.  If you grow your own or buy them at a farmers market, you can’t beat the flavor of fresh- from-the-garden tomatoes.  Usually I have such a bounty from my garden that I am looking for new ways […]

Apple Walnut Cake

Apples are coming into the farmer’s markets all around, and I know it’s time to bake some wonderful apple recipes.  This is a new one to me but I was intrigued because it uses my 10-inch cast iron skillet to bake it in.  These skillets are the backbone of many American kitchens–so versatile and reliable. […]

Double Chocolate Muffins

OK, I make these resolutions, like no more sugar or chocolate for breakfast, and I seem to always lose my way!  But the kids were out with a friend who stopped at a nationally known coffee shop just to grab a cup of coffee for herself.  Lo and behold the kids swarmed around the pastry […]
