Paleo Bread

Posted on August 30, 2011

This gluten-free bread is easy to make, tastes great, and is full of nutrient dense ingredients.

Gluten-free isn’t necessarily healthy, especially when it comes to bread.  Here’s a gluten-free bread recipe, made of high protein ingredients that won’t leave you dragging.  I’m loving every slice that comes from this new Paleo diet friendly bread recipe.

This bread is just a bit lighter and fluffier than my other breads.  It has a nice nutty flavor from the flax meal which makes it almost […]

Chocolate Strawberry Shortcake

Posted on August 18, 2011

This simple gluten free shortcake recipe is easy enough to make with your children

One summer evening as I baked countless batches of gluten free cookies, my older son popped into the kitchen. Determined to join me in my culinary adventures, he decided to make gluten free strawberry shortcake from scratch (as in using no cookbook or recipe). The twist?  He’s a chocolate lover, so he made Chocolate Strawberry Shortcake.

As you may know, Jewish mothers tend to think of their sons […]

Espresso Fudge Brownies

Posted on June 14, 2011

I was working my way through the Cook’s Illustrated website the other night and came across an amazing recipe for Triple Chocolate Espresso Brownies.  As soon as I laid eyes on that recipe I knew I had to create a high protein, gluten free version.  While my husband enjoys all of my gluten free chocolate recipes, this is his fave.  He even left a special love note on the fridge for me late last night after sampling them.

Of course this […]

Banana Walnut Muffins

Posted on May 12, 2011

I originally posted this date sweetened, gluten free muffin recipe the year before last in my Great Agave Debate post.  Because it was part of something so much bigger, it kinda got lost in the mix.  I’m re-posting it because I think it’s an easy, super tasty, healthy recipe that will please both agave lovers and haters alike.

For more information on agave, please check out my Great Agave Debate post and all of the amazing reader comments and debate […]

Multi “Grain” Crackers

Posted on February 15, 2011

The recipe for these gluten free crackers comes from my friend Betsy

Don’t be confused by these gluten free Multi “Grain” Crackers.  Because they are in fact gluten free and grain-free.  That’s right, these crackers don’t contain grains.  What are they made of?  They contain a multitude of high protein, high fiber superfoods including almonds, flax and hemp.

So as you can see, even though these are called Multi “Grain” Crackers, I have not started eating grains again.  And yes, I’ve been […]

Carrot Scallion Latkes

Posted on November 30, 2010

Latkes are everyone’s favorite Jewish fried food.  The typical latke is made with potato, flour and eggs.  I however, like to make a more Paleo friendly latke and now with this new recipe, I have 2 versions of Paleo pancakes.

Generally at Hanukkah, I make a Butternut Squash Latke, though this year I was searching for a bit of variety and so came up with this Carrot Scallion Latke.  Why carrots?  Well, first of all, my younger son asked me to […]

Gluten-Free Cupcakes Cookbook

Posted on October 4, 2010

It’s been a busy summer, with baseball, boys and everything else that goes on around here.  Now that it’s the “harvest,” it’s the perfect time to announce what I grew over the summer.  I cultivated a new book called:

Gluten-Free Cupcakes: 50 Irresistible Recipes Made with Almond and Coconut Flour

The book is available for pre-order on amazon.com and will be published next spring.  If you need to get an immediate cupcake fix, check out the cupcake recipes from my Month O’ […]

Blueberries and Cream Cupcakes

Posted on May 21, 2010

The idea to make these gluten free Blueberries and Cream Cupcakes came from the book Martha Stewart’s Cupcakes. You can view her original recipe over at ivillage.com.  While testing, the boys and I were referring to these yummy little gluten free treats as blueberry shortcake cupcakes and as you can imagine, the 3 of us enjoyed every bite.

My husband, unfortunately, was not privy to a tasting of these gluten free cupcakes since he was on an extended business trip and […]

Coconut Cupcakes with Key Lime Icing

Posted on May 7, 2010

Thanks everyone for your cupcake suggestions.  The idea for these gluten free Coconut Key Lime Cupcakes came from comments left by sas and laura in my Jelly Donut Cupcake post –the post that launched my own personal month of cupcakes.

These gluten free cupcakes were a real winner with my children.  Whenever I get out the icing bag, they go bonkers and yesterday was no different.  I had to hold them back when they arrived home from school, so that I […]

Jelly Donut Cupcakes

Posted on May 4, 2010

In honor of Celiac Awareness Month, I have decided to make May my own personal cupcake month.  Today’s post is Jelly Donut (or Doughnut) Cupcakes, and I’m going to attempt to do a gluten free cupcake recipe every time I post in May –wish me luck!

These gluten free Jelly Donut Cupcakes are filled with yummy raspberry jam and oozing with fruity goodness.  My husband liked them so much that he took the entire batch to his office to (hopefully) share […]

Cinnamon Bun Muffins

Posted on December 16, 2009

These gluten free muffins taste like cinnamon rolls and make the perfect breakfast treat!

One of my favorite readers Courtney recently suggested that I create a gluten free cinnamon roll recipe. She said it would be perfect for Christmas morning. Being smack in the middle of Hanukkah that wasn’t something I had thought about. Thanks Courtney!

So, here’s my little ol’ gluten free Cinnamon Bun Muffin recipe. I hope you all enjoy it during the holidays.

Lemon Rosemary Mini-Muffins

Posted on October 23, 2009

I’ve been slightly obsessed with rosemary lately.  I put it in everything and just can’t seem to get enough of this delicious herb.   My latest rosemary victim?  Gluten free Lemon Rosemary Mini Muffins made with coconut flour.

I find that rosemary almost has a buttery flavor.  It’s also power packed with nutrients including iron and calcium.  These gluten free muffins are more of an adult treat than something for children.  I’ve been in the mood lately for tasty snacking and dessert […]

Zucchini Chocolate Chip Muffins

Posted on October 16, 2009

For those of you that have leftover zucchini from your gardens, here is a delicious gluten free zucchini chocolate chip mini muffin recipe.  Our garden is just petering out with the severe frost we had last weekend and I need to get going on pulling up all the wilted plants from the yard.

Meanwhile, with this colder weather I’ve been a baking fiend and my family is fully taking advantage of this, loading themselves up with gluten free goodies.

Cranberry Walnut Bread Revised

Posted on September 24, 2009

After receiving this comment about my gluten free Cranberry Nut Bread from a reader named Caroline I became somewhat concerned about the recipe.  I proceeded to test it several times in response.  First, though, before I share my results with you, here is Caroline’s comment:

Hello – I have just made your cranberry walnut bread using your exact recipe and strangely, my bread turned out very, very dark, as if there was molasses in it.  The batter looked much lighter in […]

Chocolate Cupcakes

Posted on June 12, 2009

The New York Times blog, Bitten, just did a feature on chocolate cupcakes, which made me realize that a recipe for gluten free chocolate cupcakes is conspicuously lacking from this site.  Well, I am happy to say that is no longer the case.

In my quest for the perfect gluten free chocolate cupcake, I made these 5 times. Today. Luckily, my boys and their glutenoid friends happily scarfed the “failures.” Here, I share with you my success.

Mini Blueberry Muffins: Video

Posted on June 1, 2009

Because of all of the requests I have had for more videos as well as for recipes using coconut flour…I have created a short video tutorial using coconut flour.

In this quick and easy tutorial I invite you into my kitchen to be taken step by step through a recipe for mini blueberry muffins. These muffins are mighty tasty.

My children and their friends (who can eat as much gluten as they want) fought over these muffins after I was […]

Carrot Muffins

Posted on May 8, 2009

These gluten free carrot muffins make a great addition to any brunch menu, though especially one for Mother’s Day.

These lightly sweetened muffins are made with high fiber coconut flour.  Don’t let all that healthy stuff scare you off though, they’re mighty tasty.  And with yacon sweetening them, they’re not too sweet.  If you want to replace the yacon with agave your muffin will be just a bit sweeter.  I tried making them both ways and preferred the yacon version.

I […]

Lemon Poppy Seed Muffins

Posted on February 20, 2009

We will be making these gluten free lemon poppy seed muffins at my class on March 17th at the Culinary School of the Rockies.  I am sharing the recipe here for those of you that won’t be able to make it.

This is my mother-in-law’s favorite little muffin.  When she came out to visit, I baked a batch and sent them with her so she would have sustenance for the plane ride home.

I like these muffins because they are not only […]

German Chocolate Cake Revised

Posted on February 17, 2009

We will be making this gluten free German Chocolate Cake (and many other dishes) in my next cooking class at the Culinary School of the Rockies, March 17th.  If you want to sign up there is still some space left.

As we all know, there are many ways to make German Chocolate Cake.  An entire chocolate cake can be frosted with a coconut pecan icing as I did a while back in this post.  Alternatively, the sides of the cake can […]
