Gluten Free Oreo Balls

  Gluten free Oreo balls are one of my easiest seasonal desserts to make. These are great for Christmas and Valentine’s Day because they are dipped in rich melted chocolate and drizzled with white chocolate.  All I have to do is find gluten free chocolate sandwich cookies similar to Oreos. Gluten-free baking can be a …

Mint Cheesecake Brownies

Mint Cheesecake brownies have teased me for the past 3 years.   They are on the cover of one of my favorite line of cookbooks from Goose Berry Patch. My grandmother gave me my first GBP cookbook a few years ago and it became an instant favorite. Over the years I have added 1 or 2 …

Salted Pecan Bark

Finding gluten-free desserts at parties is like trying to find a Salvation Army bell-ringer at a Grinch convention. It’s just not happening often. That’s why I like recipes like these. Chocolate. Pecans. Some flavor pairings with a good dash of salt. One small note about “white chocolate”. This can be tricky because it’s not really …

Red Velvet Crinkle Cookies

I love anything described as red velvet. Red velvet cakes are as Southern as sweet tea and magnolias. I use an old family recipe for a traditional red velvet so I thought these cookies might have half a chance of success if I went with tradition. My last attempt at backing cookies was GREAT! I …

Frosted Ginger Cookies

Strawberry Mousse Recipe

  The strawberries have arrived! These beauties are the first crops of our spring farmer’s markets and I have seen a big harvest in our area markets. Some years, the strawberries do not make a great first showing. This year looks to be a great crop of strawberries. Naturally, I had to bring home a …

School started a few days ago and this teacher is extremely overwhelmed with enjoying the fast-paced world of kindergarten, cooking meals to eat later, keeping up with race training, and adding at-home CrossFit workouts at night. …

Swiss Almond Ice Cream

A few weeks ago, I opened this book to look at all the recipes that I could make that would not involve dairy or gluten. Since being diagnosed with Celiac disease two years ago, I’ve drastically scaled back my dairy since the proteins in dairy can cause issues for people with gluten intolerances. It’s almost …
