The Daring Bakers get a Sugar Rush (Vanilla Bean Caramels)

I’m late! I’m late! For a Very Important Date! That’s right, I’m late at posting my Daring Baker Challenge for November. We had such a busy birthday weekend, I didn’t get around to posting it on Saturday like I should have. I apologize, and without further ado, I will share the recipe with you that […]

Gluten-Free Brownies

After reading this recipe on Mennonite Girls Can Cook (and yes, they can) I knew this was a recipe I wanted to try. I found some coconut flour at Bulk Barn when we went to the city, and have since gotten more, so I can make more brownies. These made really, really good brownies. Not […]

Gluten-free Pumpkin Pecan Tarts

I made these mini pies using a new GF crust recipe. I was very happy with this crust recipe, it was tender, and even slightly flaky. However, I only had to roll the dough into small balls & place in a mini muffin tin (to make mini tarts). I never had to roll out a […]

Pumpkin Ice Cream

Yes, folks…pumpkin ice cream! I’ve never seen this available in the store, but it would really make a great seasonal ice cream, I think. This ice cream tastes just like pumpkin pie, with the wonderful taste of pumpkin, and the great blend of spices. With the heavy cream & egg yolks, it makes a really […]

Gluten-Free Pumpkin Biscotti

I was so excited when this recipe actually turned out. And not only turned out, but was fantastic! I had tried making biscotti in my pre-gluten-free days, but hadn’t succeeded. This is my first attempt at gluten-free biscotti, and I gotta say, it rocked! Get out that cuppa joe, you’re gonna need it to dip […]

Gluten-Free Carrot Muffins/Cake

Today is my baby’s 3rd birthday. Wow, where have the last 3 years gone. He was born 3 years ago, early in the morning, just before the doctor had to leave for a weekend-long conference (phew!). He was also born on his due date, which I understand is a very odd thing to happen. He […]
