These healthy, higher protein, gluten free Date Walnut Bars are a nice alternative to my more indulgent gluten free Cake Pops. If you follow me on Facebook, you know I’m obsessed with cake pops. After I put the words “cake pops” in my status update bar for the umpteenth time, one of my followers said, “yes, I have noticed them!” I think she may have had just a twinge if sarcasm in her response, though who can blame her.
Anyway, back ... read more →

Gluten Free Cake Pops dipped in antioxidant rich dark chocolate.
This recipe for cake pops is one of my favorite gluten free desserts and can also be considered a gluten free candy.
I bought Bakerella’s fabulous book Cake Pops: Tips, Tricks, and Recipes for More Than 40 Irresistible Mini Treats just after Thanksgiving.
Our chavurah came over for Shabbos dinner one night in early December and my friend Paige brought over a bunch of leftover cake balls that she had made from ... read more →

I recently fell in love with Georgia Pellegrini’s book Food Heroes and will be giving it to various friends for the holidays. I am also giving away a copy to one lucky winner on my Food Heroes post from Monday. It’s a great read and has wonderful recipes. The recipe below is my adaptation of Georgia’s grandmother’s fruit pudding, which I think you’ll enjoy.
This light and easy to eat dessert is a perfect Christmas pudding. It’s basically made with dried ... read more →

Latkes are everyone’s favorite Jewish fried food. The typical latke is made with potato, flour and eggs. I however, like to make a more Paleo friendly latke and now with this new recipe, I have 2 versions of Paleo pancakes.
Generally at Hanukkah, I make a Butternut Squash Latke, though this year I was searching for a bit of variety and so came up with this Carrot Scallion Latke. Why carrots? Well, first of all, my younger son asked me to ... read more →

This recipe for Spiced Pecans is based on one I found in Dorie Greenspan’s book Around My French Table. I am in love with that book and have found so many recipes in it that are “naturally gluten free.”
I had the pleasure of meeting Ms. Greenspan at Blogher Food this year where she and I both spoke on panels. On my panel, we discussed the technicalities of writing a recipe, while the inimitable Dorie (is it too familiar of ... read more →

Stuffing. Gluten free stuffing, no less. While I generally find stuffing to be a time consuming and complex dish to make, I have chosen one that is on the easier side; though be forewarned, I would hardly call this dish easy.
This gluten free stuffing recipe is based on one I found by Sara Foster at Bon Appétit. It has all the components of a good stuffing recipe: bread (gluten free of course in this case), onions, celery, chicken broth, and ... read more →

The recipe for this gluten free Cinnamon Apple Cake comes from one of my favorite bloggers, AndreAnna “The Primal Matriarch” and her food blog, Life as a Plate. I adapted my version of her recipe, Apple Spice Bread, eliminating the step of pre-cooking the apples, adding a ton of cinnamon, and making a couple other changes as well.
I think that you’ll be delighted whether you go for her original recipe or my inerpretation of it below. By the way, this ... read more →

Spunky Coconut’s Chicken Meatballs!
This giveaway is now closed.
This recipe comes from The Spunky Coconut Cookbook by my adorable friend, Kelly Brozyna of the spunkycoconut.com.
Last weekend, between all of my writing deadlines, I snuck out of the house, away from the computer to meet up with Kelly and her family at the Boulder Farmer’s Market. We grabbed some grub from the market, splashed around with her gorgeous daughters in the creek, then walked around downtown together for a while.
How refreshing! I ... read more →

I am loving working with the Almond Board of California to promote healthy eating. Almonds are my favorite superfood –they’re full of protein, low in carbohydrates and packed with nutritious vitamins and minerals.
The Almond Board asked me to create a cracker recipe for them so I have developed these wonderfully flavorful Rosemary Crackers made of almond flour. They are delicious paired with olive tapenade or any soft spreadable cheese for a cocktail party. ... read more →

I am thrilled to let you all know that I am working with the Almond Board of California to promote healthy and delicious eating.
Why am I doing this? As you can imagine, I love almonds. They are a superfood and of course one of my favorite things to nibble on. I like almonds so much that I wrote an entire book about them. The Gluten-Free Almond Flour Cookbook uses almonds in all of ... 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 →

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.

1 ½ cups blanched almond flour
1 tablespoon arrowroot powder

Carrot Kugel –who would have thought of that? Well, the fabulous Lisa Stafford, that’s who. Lisa recently posted her recipe for Carrot Souffle in the forums and here’s what she had to say about it:
“I made this dish Tuesday night and had some with our meat and salad. I warmed some up in the toaster oven for lunch on Wednesday. Before I put it away, I tried it cold. Oh my goodness! I like it cold much better. It reminds me of ... read more →

These gluten free muffins taste like cinnamon rolls and make the perfect breakfast treat!
One of my favorite readers Courtney recently suggested that I create a gluten free cinnamon roll recipe. She said it would be perfect for Christmas morning. Being smack in the middle of Hanukkah that wasn’t something I had thought about. Thanks Courtney!
So, here’s my little ol’ gluten free Cinnamon Bun Muffin recipe. I hope you all enjoy it during the holidays.

I’ve been slightly obsessed with rosemary lately. I put it in everything and just can’t seem to get enough of this delicious herb. My latest rosemary victim? Gluten free Lemon Rosemary Mini Muffins made with coconut flour.
I find that rosemary almost has a buttery flavor. It’s also power packed with nutrients including iron and calcium. These gluten free muffins are more of an adult treat than something for children. I’ve been in the mood lately for tasty snacking and dessert ... read more →

After receiving this comment about my gluten free Cranberry Nut Bread from a reader named Caroline I became somewhat concerned about the recipe. I proceeded to test it several times in response. First, though, before I share my results with you, here is Caroline’s comment:
Hello – I have just made your cranberry walnut bread using your exact recipe and strangely, my bread turned out very, very dark, as if there was molasses in it. The batter looked much lighter in ... read more →

One of my projects this year has been getting “Operation Hen House” up and running. With the completion of our house for the hens in the side yard and the screened in chicken run attached to it, we became the proud “parents” of 5 teenage chickens. They have not yet begun to lay.
All credit for Operation Hen House, goes to the amazing Patrick, who built the house and its accompanying screened in yard and helped me with a bunch of ... read more →

I have been craving a good, healthy, tasty, gluten free bran muffin for quite some time. Finally, thanks to flaxmania (I’m on a string of flax recipes this week) here it is.
My friend Chris was one of my guinea pigs for this baking endeavor. She took a flax muffin home from my house one day and ate it the next for breakfast. Later, I received a phone call from her requesting this recipe. I take that as a good ... read more →
