This recipe is from Cookie Madness. I wanted something easy to make, quick to come together, but tasty, to bring to a potluck. I literally was taking them out of the oven and putting them on the plate as we were going out the door. The recipe is easily doubled. [...]

I have been recovering this week from a clogged milk duct. (Too much information perhaps, but bear with me, it gets better, I promise.) This cake from Gluten-Free Mommy, seemed just the thing to brighten my mood. Natalie says her sister, Caroline, brought her this cake to cheer her up when she [...]

This recipe was inspired by Mary Frances’ Gluten Free Cooking School. The ingredients seemed similar to other recipes I have tried and not been satisfied with, but the proportions were slightly different. It was worth a go.
This is good sandwich bread. Whichever recipe Mary Frances played around with for so long, it [...]

This recipe is from Baking Bites. Nicole says it was inspired by Trader Joe’s Peppermint Jo-Jos, a peppermint Oreo chocolate sandwich cookie. She says they are one of her favourite recipes of 2007 and no matter how many times she baked them they were always eaten up. With such good reviews I [...]

I saw Alton Brown make this cake on the Food Network and thought it sounded tasty. This was my first time using quinoa flour, which I have steered away from using in the past because I thought it would have too strong a taste. I decided to give it a fair chance [...]

This recipe is from Home Ec 101. Heather says they are simple to make and they are indeed. They come together easily, much like the GF-Zing doughnut muffins. They have a mild, sweet flavour and the vanilla is nice. What I didn’t expect was the texture. These have an incredibly [...]

This is another recipe from Cookie Madness. Anna says it is from a restaurant called Z-Tejas and she found it at Pepperfool through Google. Chocolate and peppers go quite well together. I was looking for a recipe to make for my husband’s birthday and since he loves pies, this seemed perfect. The pie crust recipe [...]

This recipe is from Orangette. Molly says it was inspired by Columbia City Bakery, Seattle WA and adapted from Kathleen Stewart of the Downtown Bakery and Creamery, Healdsburg CA. The second recipe is from Gluten-Free Zing. They say it is adapted from a recipe by Bev Lieven of Milwaukee Coeliac-Sprue Crew. [...]

This recipe is from Feast by Nigella Lawson. I found it at Not Quite Nigella. The idea of so much chocolate in one cake was instantly appealing to me. Not Quite Nigella says the chocolate chips fell to the bottom of her cake. I used a trick of coating the chocolate [...]

This recipe is from my husband’s grandmother. She got it from her Finnish friend Helvi. Pulla is known as “Finnish Biscuit.” It is full of cardamom and is traditionally served with coffee.
Adapting this recipe to gluten-free was a challenge, and no wonder, as bread is the Titan of gluten-free baking. I [...]
