Mini Chocolate Bundt Cakes

Mini Chocolate Bundt Cakes

My friend Kate was willing to sacrifice a birthday dinner so she could watch a co-ed softball game that her friends play on. That’s friendship. To show how special she is, I thought I would surprise Kate with cake! Kate is also vegan, which makes […]

Gluten-Free Banana Bread

Gluten-Free Banana Bread

For Bread Week 18, I decided to make a gluten-free banana bread – specifically, this one that took both oats and almond meal in addition to some gluten-free flour. I’m glad I did. This was a delicious, hearty loaf that should work well with wheat […]

Alton Brown’s Gluten-free Chocolate Chip Cookies

Alton Brown’s Gluten-free Chocolate Chip Cookies

Let me tell you about very delicious chocolate chip cookies. This recipe yields some of the most delicious chocolate chip cookies I have ever made, period. Having made another gluten-free cookie recipe, I think it’s probable that this is the most delicious gluten-free chocolate chip […]

Gluten-Free Cinnamon Rolls

Gluten-Free Cinnamon Rolls

I really enjoy it when my friends send me recipes. My friend Kate came across this recipe for gluten-free (and vegan) cinnamon rolls. I really enjoyed the bagels that I made from a recipe from Fork and Beans, so I was happy to try it […]

Gluten-Free Hot Cross Buns

Gluten-Free Hot Cross Buns

Bread, Week 16: I’ve always wanted to make Hot Cross Buns, but never have. In fact, I’ve never eaten one. I came across a recipe for them in Gluten-Free Baking Classics, a cookbook I’ve been reading through. I debated whether or not I should make […]

Miso-Carrot Soup

Miso-Carrot Soup

I don’t make single-vegetable soups very often. I’ve eaten enough boring ones to be indifferent. I like a little more texture in my soup than you usually get from a pureed or cream soup. I like my soup to be hearty; I don’t want a […]

Almond Macaroon Torte with Chocolate Frosting

Almond Macaroon Torte with Chocolate Frosting

Valentine’s Day was a Friday this year, and I couldn’t bear the thought of going out to dinner with hordes of other people. I had no inspiration for dinner (we ended up buying steak and appetizers at Trader Joe’s), but I had decided earlier that […]

Gluten-Free Vegan Everything Bagels

Gluten-Free Vegan Everything Bagels

Bread Week 9: My friend Kate (hi Kate!) frequents vegan food blogs and has been kind enough to send me gluten-free recipes she comes across. I’m not vegan, but I appreciate recipes that use innovative ways to make food, which vegan recipes do. My bread […]

Gluten-Free Crepes

Gluten-Free Crepes

My second foray into trying out my new gluten-free cookbook was crepes. I determined that crepes would be a perfect vehicle for both dulce de leche that I planned to make, and would pair well with bellinis for breakfast. I didn’t have dulce de leche […]

Gluten-Free Cornmeal Pizza Crust

Gluten-Free Cornmeal Pizza Crust

Bread, Week 8: I ordered pizza (for others) at work recently, and it smelled fantastic. It was the first time I really wished that I wasn’t trying this gluten-free diet. I could have baked gluten-free pasta with pizza toppings, which would be tasty, but not […]
