  4. Peach Blueberry Pie

    I had not intention of making a pie for Pi Day, because honestly I find the whole thing kind of absurd. But everywhere where I went Pi, Pi, Pi. It finally got to me and I just had to make pie. I am guessing the founders of Pi Day wanted to inspire me to do math, but baking involves math, so I guess it’s a win-win situation.

    I have never made a peach blueberry pie before, but I really wanted a fruit pie and being March in the Pacific Northwest there aren’t a lot of fresh fruit options. And I didn’t want to go the store for apples. I only had 5 cups of frozen peaches so I threw in frozen blueberries to make the up remaining couple of cups. My family was a bit skeptical of my fruit combo, but it was a winner! We couldn’t even wait for it to cool completely to cut into it. Delicious.

  5. Allergy Friendly Pie Crust

    Today’s post is the best tasting, egg-free, dairy-free, gluten-free pie crust I have tried. It is a little hard to handle, but you can easily press the dough back together. It really does taste like a traditional pie crust. Of course, if you can eat butter, you could use butter in place of my shortening/butter substitute.

    I was flipping through one of my cookbooks and I spotted a recipe for Coconut Tapioca Pudding. It looked so good I bought all the ingredients, but when I actually went to make the recipe it seemed unnecessarily complicated. I decided to make a much simpler version, based on a Thai Kitchen recipe.

    The result is very sweet, sticky, Coconut Tapioca Pudding.

    I know there are a lot of gluten-free recipes out there that promise to deliver thick, fudgy and delicious brownies. But, somehow they fall short. This is one gluten-free brownie recipe that really does deliver!

  8. Soft Ginger Cookies

    We stopped into a local coffee roaster and I couldn’t resist having a giant soft ginger cookie. Being the only wheat eating member of my family, I rarely eat a “regular” cookie. It was one of those giant bakery style cookies that is the size of a small pie. But they call it one cookies, so who am I to argue.

    Well, it was a really great tasting cookie. And although I am a huge fan of ginger snap cookies, there was nothing snappy about the texture; but rather it was soft and moist. I knew I had to come up with a gluten-free version my family could enjoy.

  9. Chocolate Covered Peppermint Patties

    Chocolate and peppermint are a great combination and perfect for the holiday season. So when I saw a recipe for homemade peppermint patties years ago in a Taste of Home magazine I was super excited.

    I’ll admit the end result tasted great, but they didn’t look so pretty. My mom, sisters, and I have continued to make the recipe, tweaking it until we finally got it right. Now, they look as nice as they taste.
