Gluten-Free Cinnamon Rolls

I’m still working on clearing out old expired stuff from my kitchen, and I finally found a use for my King Arthur Gluten Free Multi-Purpose Flour that had a sell by date of January 2013. I wasn’t all that keen to make the popover recipe on the back of the box, so I ventured to the company website for further inspiration, and I’m glad I did because it has a good selection of recipes. That’s where I found this one for gluten-free cinnamon rolls. Continue reading »

Gluten-Free Cinnamon Mini-MuffinsSeveral weeks ago I mentioned wanting to try a recipe for Cinnamon Bun Muffins that I found on elanaspantry.com. Whenever there’s something I want to make gluten-free, I typically head there first and see if she’s already figured out how to do it. Usually, she has. Continue reading »

School was out on Monday, so the kids and I visited a local coffeehouse. Their coffee might be fantastic as rumored, but I ordered a chai tea and wasn’t impressed. It was too sweet and a bit heavy on something… cloves, maybe? It’s the same issue I have with chai tea from Starbucks. I prefer the chai tea at Whole Foods, even though it’s made from a concentrate.

Gluten-Free CupcakesThanks to a recent online discussion about gluten-free baking, a couple of flour blend recipes came to my attention, and I agreed to try them both and report on my results. Originally, I was only going to try one gluten-free flour blend, but it called for sorghum flour and I didn’t have any. Continue reading »

Butternut Squash Pecan Pie Slice

A long time ago I posted pictures of two healthy (and gluten-free) holiday dessert ideas, with links to their recipes. One was an apple tart, and the other was a butternut squash pie, and I regularly make both recipes this time of year. Continue reading »

Gluten Free Cupcakes Crumb and TextureI’m not entirely sure what possessed me to attempt more gluten-free cupcakes, but I stumbled upon this recipe from Elana Amsterdam’s archives while searching for something else, and I was curious how it would turn out. The other cupcake recipe of hers that I tried uses almond flour, and while still yummy, those cupcakes are dense, heavy, and moist to the point of almost seeming soggy. Continue reading »

Homemade Chocolate Peanut Butter CupsRecently I decided to try a little experiment. I was really in the mood for some frozen dipped bananas, only I forgot to buy any bananas. With just a bag of chocolate chips and a fresh jar of all-natural peanut butter at my disposal, I thought about making homemade peanut butter cups. Continue reading »

Grain Free Bread Loaf First AttemptI was not looking for a grain-free bread recipe when I found this one posted online, and I apologize for not taking note where I spotted it, because now I can’t remember. Nor do I recall what recipe I was originally looking for (it most likely involved chocolate), because once I discovered this easy recipe for a loaf of grain-free bread, I decided to try it right away. Especially since I had all the necessary ingredients. Continue reading »

Gluten-Free Molten Chocolate CupcakesLast week I cleaned out my freezer, which is something I don’t do nearly often enough. I never know what I’m going to unearth in there since things often get pushed to the back corners and buried underneath bags of frozen mixed vegetables.

This time I discovered a stash of leftover flour blends I put together AGES ago to make some recipes from my Gluten-Free Baking with the Culinary Institute of America cookbook. I had completely forgotten all about these, and knowing that they had been around for quite I while I figured I better try to use them up soon. Continue reading »
