Wednesdays are for Stone Fruit

Stone fruits are my absolute favorite and today I decided to use the white nectarines and apricots I had in a gluten free stone fruit crisp. The recipe is very simple and also very fun to play around with in terms of different stone fruits, different spices, and whether you prefer vanilla extract, almond extract,…

Grandma Cookies

After spending the weekend baking a Bride’s ‘Grandma Cookies’, I knew today I had to make my own ‘Grandma Cookies’!

L is for Lovers…and Lemons

Extra Fun Thursday

I have been craving Funfetti cake like CRAZY and I can’t seem to get my hands on the recently announced Pillsbury Gluten Free Funfetti Cake Mix, so I made my own. Boxed cake has a very distinct flavor and texture which can be accomplished by adding sour cream or greek yogurt to your recipe (this…

Feeling French

I love making madeleines, there is something very peaceful about folding the batter and piping it into the delicate molds. I used to make these cookies a lot, but haven’t since I became gluten free so this was my first attempt making them with the gluten free modification. I even got adventurous and split the…

Cornmeal Peach Upside Down Cake {gluten free}

I have made this recipe before, but instead I made the cake separately, then topped the cake with macerated peaches (peaches soaked in lemon juice/sugar/mint) and homemade whipped cream. Today, I decided to change it up and use the same cake recipe, but this time make it a peach upside down cake complete with a buttery brown-sugary…

I added that too.  BANANA WALNUT NUTELLA MUFFINS {GLUTEN FREE} Ingredients: 2 Cups Gluten Free AP Flour 1 tsp Baking Powder 1 tsp Baking…
