DIY Gluten-Free Mix™ — Fudgy Brownie Mix

My family celebrates with brownies!  We usually have them for parties, cookouts and just because.  Brownies are our sweet of choice.  Needless to say, when we went gluten-free we were sure we would never again have our favorite brownies.  Not so!  Since Freedom Delivered gluten-free All Purpose Flour is a cup for cup substitution for […]

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 […]

GF Pecan Balls–Only 5 Ingredients

I love pecans–the texture of them and the subtle flavor of them.  During the holidays I often make pecan balls covered in powdered sugar.  They look like snowballs and taste divine!  But it’s the heat of the summer and  I’m having a couple of ladies over for a meeting, so I decided to make these […]

Double Chocolate Slice & Bake Cookies

This is an old standby recipe that I have adapted to be gluten-free because I cannot imagine my life without these cookies!  First of all, my mother always said that if a recipe used oats in any form, it was healthier than a recipe without oats.  I believe some of those “old wives tales” have […]

Baked Chocolate Donuts with Peanut Butter Frosting

It’s Easter Monday and the kids are home for the day.  What better way to start the day that with homemade donuts!  These are quick and easy and they only make about 8 donuts–nothing to have left over.  I had the help of the younger boys so they chose the peanut butter frosting, and, of […]

Chocolate and Peanut Butter Cookies–like Tagalongs

Girl Scout cookies are everywhere this week.  I grew up loving them just like everyone else.  As a mother I understand that the girls are learning how to deal with people, present a sales pitch and learn some self-confidence.  I usually but a few boxes and donate them to our food pantry.  Then I make […]

Brownie Pops–Yum!

I had wanted to try my hand at cake pops.  They sounded like something fun to make for a kid’s birthday party, or some special event.  One of my neighbors asked me if I’d be willing to bake something gluten-free for a fund raiser at the local elementary school.  We used to call them bake […]

Black and White Thumbprint Cookies

There must be hundreds of recipes for thumbprint cookies.  I think I have about ten recipes that I have made over the years.  Here is a new one.  I tried it because it uses oats, and I think that makes it healthier.  It also uses buttercream icing for the filling and I seem to always […]

Mocha Bites for the Holiday Trays

This mocha flavored small cookie is just the right thing to add to a holiday tray.  It is rich in flavor, but not too sweet.  Anyone who cherishes his or her mid-afternoon cup of coffee will be sure to enjoy this treat.  This recipe makes 18-20 small cookies.  Enough that you can add a couple […]

Cookie Butter, White Chocolate and Oatmeal Cookies

The title says it all!  These cookies are full of good things and good flavors.  They make a limited number which is good for me as I only put 2-3 on each holiday tray that I make.  These cookies are big and soft and chewy! Yum! They also freeze well which is why I can […]
