Gluten Free Strawberry Dream Cake

Caitlin's 2nd Bday Cake

Celebrate! What’s a birthday party without cake and candles? Our granddaughter Caitlin just turned 2 years old and I wanted to bake a cake for her party. The challenge was two fold for me. First off, I’m not a big sweet eater or baking genius. Secondly, one whole side of the family has varying degrees of gluten intolerance. Being family, we all jump on the gluten free train when we are together. I know it makes me feel better too! Wheat flour is a perfect creation in nature so to have the same effect without gluten is truly an art! So what did I do? Continue reading

Golden Twice Baked Yukons

Aren’t tiny things the cutest? Puppies and kittens, babies and, of course, food! There is something about mini sized food and desserts that just beg you to pop them in your mouth. Maybe it’s because even the most decadent dessert or gooey cheesey treat seems harmless to the waistline if you eat them in the smallest of bites. They are so very festive and cheerful, sitting there, waiting for you, taunting you “Eat me! I am delicious!” And so you do. And you are so happy you did! Continue reading
