Peanut Butter Pretzel Truffles

GF Treats

My lovely friend Aoife is getting married this May, and we celebrated her wedding shower a few weeks ago. I offered to bring treats, and they needed to be both gluten-free and dairy-free for the bride-to-be. After consulting my Oh She Glows cookbook, a few other websites, and remembering what I made for her sister’s […]

Gluten-Free, Dairy-Free Bridal Shower Treats

October 2, 2013 Cookies
GF DF Treats

It was my absolute pleasure to help out my friend Aoife with her sister’s bridal shower treats last month, because I love her family so much, and also because showers are often where baking and crafts collide. An additional little challenge was that all of the food for the shower had to be gluten- free and […]

Butternut Squash Soup

October 20, 2011 Gluten-Free

I was planning on going all ‘Anna & Kristina’s Grocery Bag’ on Gwyneth Paltrow’s cookbook My Father’s Daughter, but it still hasn’t happened. If you’ve never seen it, or don’t regularly watch the W Network, on the A&K show they take a cookbook and make 6-8 recipes from it, and decide if they would recommend it to […]

Tomato Salad with Cilantro Vinaigrette

September 21, 2011 Gluten-Free

Remember a few weeks ago when I was talking about being a tomato snob? Well let me tell you I found some incredible tomatoes at the Square One farmer’s market at the end of August, and when tomatoes are that good, you really need to do as little as possible to make them into a delicious […]

Toasted Quinoa Salad with Cumin-Lime Dressing

August 23, 2011 Gluten-Free

I am a huge tomato snob. There’s nothing worse to me than pale orange, mealy, out-of-season tomatoes; the kind you see at Subway or Extreme Pita, or every grocery store between October-July. I try to avoid them as much as possible.

Spicy Chickpea Salad + Corn and Black Bean Salad

July 28, 2011 Gluten-Free

  When the Radonsos came over for lunch last month, I made these super quick, fresh and delicious salads. This spicy chickpea salad doesn’t even require any cooking, just a bit of chopping and making a mess and you’re done. It’s a great little dish to bring to a picnic or backyard barbecue.

Raspberry Yogurt Popsicles + Summer Reading

June 23, 2011 Frozen

These two topics aren’t really related, except I thought my summer reading stack might make a cute background for these great popsicles. Last summer I made Mocha Fudgesicles at the very end of August, and so I wanted to be right on top of my popsicle making at the beginning of the warm weather this […]

Lemon Meringue Cookies

April 21, 2011 Cookies

  As soon as I saw these cookies on Joy the Baker, I knew I would make them for the gluten-free ladies in my life.  I’m not a huge fan of lemon in desserts (I’m a chocolate / butterscotch /peanut butter girl through and through), but something about citrus just makes it perfect for Spring. It […]

Carrot Ginger Soup

April 3, 2011 Gluten-Free

I feel like I spend just as much time talking about foods I don’t like on this blog, as I doabout what I love.  What can I say, I have issues with a bunch of things, and soup is one of them. About five years ago, I went through a prolonged soup bender. The problem […]

Coffee Toffee + A Gluten-Free Holiday Jam

December 19, 2010 Candy

Last week I had a few co-workers over for a little Holiday get-together. Barry, Jill, Rebecca, Shane & Paulette came over after work to check out my new place, eat some snacks and treats and gossip about work. Since Jill eats gluten-free, I did a little advance planning to make sure everything would be wheat-free, as […]
