Gluten Free Coffee Cake

The holidays are coming! Let the panic/stress/I’m off my rocker festivities begin!  All joking aside, I seriously love celebrating the holiday season by serving up a delicious breakfast buffet.  Breakfast is much more manageable than attempting to clean a turkey and make like 26 side dishes from scratch.  Don’t forget the hand stamped and embossed…

Gluten Free Peanut Butter Pancakes

  As a little girl, pancakes for supper was a special treat.  We’d feast on stacks of pancakes, crispy bacon (nom nom nom), and hash browns.  What kid wouldn’t love a meal like that?  Way better than roast beef and (gag) turnips.  Although watching my grandfather eat scrapple still traumatizes me just a bit even…

Gluten Free Blueberry Muffins

“You’re my boy, Blue.”  Will Ferrell, Old School The above reference has absolutely NOTHING to do with my blueberry muffin recipe, but I had to include it.  As I began working on this post, I battled a case of writer’s block.  While these blueberry muffins are indeed delicious, said muffins were not inspiring writing greatness. …

Gluten Free Mozzarella Sticks

It has been four long and torturous years since I have eaten mozzarella sticks. 1,460 days without deep fried deliciousness. During a recent (rare) dinner out, I watched my husband happily devour a basket of mozzarella sticks while I ate a (ho hum boring) salad. Enough was enough! I needed fried cheese and I needed…

(Naturally) Gluten Free Hummus with Balsamic Vinegar

We have very cool friends for neighbors.  Sherry and Ray live down the street from us.  Too far to stick your arm out the window for a cup of sugar, but close enough to wander down for one of their fabulous get togethers.  Sherry and Ray recently hosted a Snuggie Party at their abode.  Yes,…

Gluten Free Carrot Cake With Cream Cheese Frosting

I am the queen of multi-tasking! I can talk on the phone, prepare dinner, and wipe a bottom all in one fell swoop. Just for clarification it was my kid’s bottom, not mine. And yes, I wash my hands thoroughly before making dinner. Note:  Sometimes I don’t posses a filter. The above paragraph is quite…

Gluten Free Blueberry Lemon Cornbread

I have a horrid confession to make…I’ve been eating large quantities of pre-packaged gluten free foods.  Cookies, breads, frozen meals; anything that did not have to be measured, mixed, and cooked by “yours truly”.  My turn to the dark side happened after burning myself out during the holiday season.  Frenetically baking like Betty Crocker on…
