Chocolate & Vanilla Marble Cake

What better way to decide between chocolate or vanilla. Have them both! This cake uses my gluten free chocolate cake recipe (click here) as well as a vanilla butter cake. Both batters are very easy to make and amazing on their own or together. I use my own custom gluten free flour blend, but any cup…

Pistachio Cupcakes

I have been in such a pistachio mood lately and find myself getting pistachios frequently to snack on. I love their flavor and color and knew I had to put that into a cake. I made a mascarpone frosting for these cupcakes, but any vanilla or cream cheese frosting would also work. I am not a…

Portuguese Orange Cake

With some extra vanilla added in, because everything is better with vanilla. I have great memories of going to this Portuguese bakery with an ex I definitely wouldn’t call him a boyfriend guy. Their pastries were so flavorful and the texture was always spot on! I loved the simplicity of the presentation and ingredients as well. This recipe…

Chocolate Sugar Cookies {gluten free}

I started out by making a chocolate sugar cookie, but with gluten free flour and didn’t like how the texture was turning out so I added more fat (always a good plan!) as in cream cheese. This has now become a staple recipe for me. I love the texture with the cream cheese and they…

Healthy Applesauce Oat Muffins

I have clearly been on a muffin kick lately! These muffins are healthy, hearty, and not overly sweet. They call for applesauce, Greek yogurt, oats, and coconut oil. I make them gluten free with my flour blend and always end up adding extra vanilla extract than what the recipe calls for. Hope you enjoy! Ingredients: 1¾ Cups…

Banana Chia Muffins

I have struggled with gluten free banana muffin/bread recipes in the past. I have had everything from dense to doughy, bland to flavorful. I finally found a great recipe for muffins and after a few modifications, I am happy to report that I have a winner! I added chia seeds, applesauce, and olive oil to up the…

Gluten Free Butter Almond Cake

I started reading this incredibly inspiring and beautifully written book about a 28 year old who suffers a brain aneurysm and uses cooking and food to fully heal and champion such a frightening time in her life. It illustrates the fact that food and cooking for so many is a source of memories and comfort. Food has…

Summer Peach Bundt Cake
