    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!

    Today marks the first day of the 15-day celebration of Chinese New Year, the Year of the Snake! It’s the perfect time to gather friends and family and prepare some delicious Asian cuisine.

  3. Soft Ginger Cookies


    January 7, 2013 by Flora Dawn

    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.

    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.

  6. Butterscotch Popcorn Crunch


    December 12, 2012 by Flora Dawn

    My sister found this recipe in an old Nestle Cookbook. We think it’s a fun variation from your typical caramel corn recipe.

    With no candy thermometer and easy to find ingredients, it’s a simple recipe to prepare; just don’t stray to far from the kitchen, as it does need stirred or shaken quite frequently.

  7. Candy Bar Fudge


    December 11, 2012 by Flora Dawn

    I got together with my mom and my sister for a holiday candy making extravaganza. Seriously, we made like 10 kinds of sweet treats, these being among the favorites.

    This Candy Bar Fudge resembles a candy bar, hence the name. However, they look and taste much more complicated than they really are. No one will ever guess you use the microwave to make this recipe. It’s a chewy caramel layer of goodness packed with peanuts and surrounded with fudge. Seriously, few things say Merry Christmas like a plate of this fudge.

  9. Gluten-Free Spritz Cookies


    November 24, 2012 by Flora Dawn

    I have one of those fancy cookie press guns that produce cute shapes, perfect for the holidays. Well, my oldest daughter always loved making Buttery Spritz Cookies and coloring the dough a vibrant red or green color for Christmas.
    Since going gluten-free we haven’t been able to enjoy the tradition, so this year when a reader, Tami, commented on Facebook that she would like a good spritz cookie for her cookie press, I decided it was time to convert my old favorite recipe.

  10. Friday Failure-Brownies


    November 23, 2012 by Flora Dawn

    I choose to not participate in Black Friday. I mean, I love a sale as much as the next gal, but dragging myself out in the middle of the night to save a few dollars is not my way of spending the day after Thanksgiving.

    So, of course, I stayed home and decided to bake. Well, all did not go as planned. And I thought after all the stress of traveling, cooking, eating gf, and shopping madness, you might enjoy a good laugh at my mistake.
