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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

Gluten-Free Vanilla Wafers for Banana Pudding—Yum!

Banana pudding with vanilla wafers is an all American comfort food for many, many people.  I used to make it for celebrations, but I’ve even been asked for it if someone is not feeling well or is down-in-the-dumps!  Isn’t that what a comfort food is all about? Of course, when we went gluten-free, this dessert, […]

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 […]

Honey Graham Cracker Redux

Just as I did in preparation for Thanksgiving through New Years Day, I bake somethings to be ready for the busy Spring into Summer seasons.  This year the first thing I am doing is to bake 3 or 4 batches of graham crackers.  It is so convenient to have my homemade, gluten-free graham crackers for […]

Almond Shortbread Cups–filled with Lemon Curd

These were an item on a tea tray at an event I attended in February.  Oh, so tasty!  I decided to try to find a recipe to recreate these treats.  As luck would have it, the tea company posted some of their best recipes a couple of weeks later and I got to use the […]

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 […]
