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’ ... read more →

Yesterday was the last day of school for the boys and their friends and we all celebrated on our porch with these fun and festive cupcakes. Super easy to make and even easier to eat, the boys made a big mess –their faces were covered in yummy deliciousness in the mid day heat. Then they ran around to our back yard, turned on the sprinkler and jumped on our trampoline. What a great afternoon!
Here’s how to make your own yummy, ... read more →

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 ... read more →

I’ve been wanting to make gluten free Carrot Cupcakes for a while now. When I think of spring, I think of carrot cake and when I think of picnics and potlucks I think of carrot cake cupcake yumminess.
These little gluten free Carrot Cake Cupcakes are topped with my Creamy Cream Cheese Frosting, though if you’re looking for a vegan frosting option, you could go with my Coconut Cream Frosting.
My younger son loved these, though the whole family enjoyed ... read more →

Here’s a quick and easy dessert that will wow your guests whether they’re gluten free or “full of gluten”. This Flourless Chocolate Cupcake recipe is dark and rich –my husband absolutely loved it.
He is really benefiting from the Elana’s Pantry month of cupcakes, given that he is my primary taste tester. And thankfully he enjoyed this treat as much as, or even more than, the last (Banana Cream Pie Cupcakes) –though that’s not much of a surprise since he’s quite the ... read more →

I’m on a gluten free cupcake mission, as you can see from the photo above and my other recent posts for Jelly Donut Cupcakes and Coconut Key Lime Cupcakes.
The boys are thrilled when they get home from school and the house looks like its ready for a birthday party. And I’m thrilled to see them with frosting all over their cute little faces.

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 ... read more →

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 ... read more →

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.

I am happy to introduce gluten free vanilla cupcakes with chocolate frosting and continue on my coconut flour recipe roll. I have been making (and testing) this dessert for close to two years and it is one of my personal favorites. I think it might be a hit with you too based on reports from taste testing friends.
Passover really threw me for a loop. It wasn’t the guests we had visit for the holiday. It ... read more →
