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. […]

Baked Tomatoes from the Garden

I sure hope your garden is as bountiful as mine has been.  If so, you will understand why I have so many tomato and zucchini recipes that I make for my family.  This recipe makes a great side dish or vegetarian main dish.  The wonderful flavor of sun ripened tomatoes comes through and can’t be […]

Blueberry Streusel Coffee Cake

We get lots of visitors in the summer, and this year is no different.  Friends and family interested in a road trip or a visit to the Southwest often stopover at our house–and I love it!  As a matter of fact, summer has always been my favorite season, even better than the Christmas holidays.  I […]

Orange Freezer Cake–Tastes Like a Creamsicle and Gluten-Free!

It’s hot, it’s simmer and it’s Father’s Day.  What better way to celebrate than to make a freezer cake that tastes like and orange creamsicle?  Some of our best memories come from summers long ago and the creamy, cold treat of a frozen creamsicle is one of those everyone in my family enjoys.  This recipe […]

Pineapple Upside Down Cake–A Summer Memory

For some reason, pineapple recipes always remind me of things my mother baked for us in the spring and summer.  I thought it was because of the pineapple rings she would put on ham for Easter dinner or the ambrosia that was always served at wedding or baby showers or graduations.  It doesn’t really make […]

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 […]

Waffled Churros–Gluten-Free and Delicious!

Churros are those crispy Mexican pastries.  Often sold by street vendors in Mexico, they are delicious covered in a sprinkle of cinnamon and sugar.  I haven’t had them in quite a few years, but I do remember how good they were.  Since we don’t go to Mexico often, I decided to try this recipe.  My […]
