Gluten Free Glazed Orange Almond Cake Recipe

January 11th, 2012 by Cinde Shields


My super-moist Gluten Free Glazed Orange Almond Cake recipe will have your family lining up for seconds. This cake tastes as good as it looks. The orange flavor really comes through and works well with the subtle almond undertones. This has none of the stereotypical gluten free cake issues... it is as delicious (if not more delicious) than most cakes containing gluten. It may very well be the moistest cake you have ever had! It's texture is wonderful and very similar to banana bread. (more…)

Gluten-free Buttermilk Biscuit Peach Cobbler Recipe

Peaches - Cut into half inch slices

One of my passions in life is baking, but once I learned I had to go gluten-free, I felt I had lost this ability.  Not only was I horribly mistaken, but gluten-free baking can actually taste better than baking with wheat flour, yes, even better!

My favorite magazine for the last 15 years has been Food & Wine. Every month when I receive it in the mail, I cannot wait to open it to the index to see what recipes await.  The dessert section is the first category I explore, and try.  I was so disappointed when I thought I would no longer be able to create the wonderful baked goods published in this bible of mine.  Then I saw this recipe, by New York's Bobby Flay, and decided I have to give it a try.

Gluten Free Flourless Brownie Recipe

Cake Darla Gluten Free Works

I may have mentioned how much I love the Whole Foods Recipes app a time or two dozen on here. It's very user friendly and has a great bank of recipes. I particularly like the Flourless Brownies because they're made with a secret ingredient: black beans. That's right, you use a can of unsalted black beans (that have been well rinsed and drained) instead of flour. Every once in a while I get experimental and try the beans-for-flour sub in other recipes, but lately I've been playing around with this one trying to make it... better. (more…)

This recipe for Gluten-Free Gingerbread Men is adapted from a recipe by Jacqueline Mallorca, "Rice Flour Gingerbread Cows", featured in her fabulous cookbook, "The Wheat-Free Cook".

This version is corn free as well as gluten-free and is extra-extra gingery- so cut back on the ginger if you like.

The gingerbread men are decorated with small amounts of Royal Icing and Chocolate Buttercream Frosting but use raisins and nuts for a charming au natural touch. (more…)

Gluten Free Shortbread Cookies

gluten free shortbread cookies

It's that time of year again... when you allow yourself to bake with real butter... and lots of it! At first I was planning to make this recipe with margarine (since that's what I had), but my mom adamantly informed me that shortbread is made with REAL BUTTER, and anything less is sacrilege. It's Christmas after all, right? But what if I would rather not gain ten pounds over the holidays? Apparently buttlerless shortbread cookies are not an option. And I'm not sure that eating less of them is an option either... these things seem to call your name from the freezer. (more…)

Gluten Free Pumpkin Pie Recipe

December 2nd, 2011 by Andra Banting

This is my first attempt at making any type of pie, but my mom has made this pie recipe dozens of times, so I know it's good. As with most gluten free pie crusts, you have to press the dough into the pie plate instead of rolling it out. I messed up a bit with this part because I forgot to check the depth on the bottom of the crust. It turned out way too thick... oops. Luckily, the dough tastes like a sugar cookie, so it wasn't the end of the world. Next time I will remember to check the depth with a fork before baking the crust. Other than that slight misstep, the pie turned out great. (more…)

Gluten-Free Coconut Chocolate Chip Cookies

I look forward to the holiday season - visiting family, friends, the exchanging of gifts. And of course there's the food. When you aren't hosting your own thanksgiving, it can be stressful to make sure you aren't getting any gluten in your diet.

I had to call my boyfriend's aunt to make sure that the turkey was okay for me to eat, and ask about other side dishes being made. But when it comes to dessert, I don't expect everyone to cater to me, so I will be bringing my own this year.  Normally I make a pie or cake or some sort.  This year, I'm making a simple but delicious favorite: chocolate chip cookies.

These cookies are good for those who are on a gluten free diet or even those following a paleo lifestyle. Most paleo peeps don't eat grains or (more…)

Gluten-free and Vegan Gingersnap Cookies

Healthful Pursuit - Leanne Vogel

I loved the idea of gifting my homemade cake stands to friends and families for the holidays. (Thanks everyone!)

Thing is – you can’t really give a cake stand to someone without having treats on it, especially if they know that you love to bake.

So I tried to figure out what seasonal recipe I could make for the stands that I could prepare ahead of time, freeze, would appeal to everyone I know (gluten-free, vegan, egg allergies, potato allergies etc), and will stay on the stand with little concern of things breaking.

Tall order, right? (more…)

Dreamy Gluten Free Chocolate Chip Cookie Balls Recipe

November 7th, 2011 by Leanne Vogel

 

I’m not sure if I’ve ever talked about my parents’ obsession with moving change.

I lived in a total of 12 houses in the first 17 years of my life.

Now, you may not think that’s a lot, but when you factor in that 6 of those 12 were temporary houses while our next house was being complete, that’s a heck of a lot of packing and unpacking in a short amount of time.

Sometimes these temporary houses would have a full kitchen, sometimes they wouldn’t. Sometimes they had a bedroom, sometimes they did not.

To make the transition as easy as possible, my Mom would make hundreds of casseroles. From manicotti, cannelloni, lasagna, to (more…)
