It’s about time this post got, well, posted. The youngest son had his 2nd birthday (more than a month ago). I had the idea to make a cake for him with chocolate 7-minute icing, since I’ve never tried that before and he loves chocolate and the marshmallowy texture of 7-minute icing. I [...]

This recipe I came up with on the fly, out of the blue, in order to have something quick and easy for dessert. I looked around at other recipes but I can’t find anything really that it is like. As you may have noticed I really love baking cakes and that’s what I [...]

Another winner from Cookie Madness. I had some bananas I wanted to use so I decided this would be an interesting recipe to try. They are very fruity and have a soft texture that is not crumbly from all the fruit in them. I used dried reconstituted cherries to use up some [...]

This cake has been a three day effort in honour of my daughter’s 5th birthday. She described to me in quite good detail exactly what she wanted. The title above is what she’s been calling it. I went to my list of recipes and found one I thought would fit [...]

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. [...]

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 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 Culinary Concoctions by Peabody. Peabody says she adapted it from several sources: Chocolate Desserts by Pierre Herme by Dorie Greenspan, Baking at Home With the Culinary Institute of America, and The French Pastry Chef. It has been on my list for quite some time and I am [...]

This is another recipe from Cookie Madness. Anna made hers with blackberries, but I used frozen peaches and dried cranberries. I used butter in my pie crust, but if you replaced the butter in the crust and filling, then you could make this casein free and vegan. Pies, especially the crust, tend [...]
