Sweet and spicy, tender and springy gingerbread …it’s a traditional recipe for any time of the year. But, if you dress it up a little with some decorator’s red sugar, it takes on a more festive air. This gluten-free recipe is easy to make and frugal, too, but it also is wonderful for serving your family and your guests.
My husband Al loves apple pie!
His mother made apple pie for him for as long as he can remember.
She would often make a single-crust pie with the apples cut in halves and sprinkled with sugar and cinnamon, then dotted with tiny clumps butter that would melt and flow through the whole pie while it baked in the oven. I remember her pies’ wonderful aroma, texture, and flavor from BGF (Before Gluten-Free) days. I and everyone else in the family absolutely loved her wonderful creations!
My mother-in-law, Mary, sure knew how to bake a pie that vanished and this recipe is no exception. I is a family tradition … Mary called it a Pennsylvania Dutch Apple Tart… and the secret …
My Chocolate Cream Pie almost always brings a smile to the face of everyone I serve it to… kids and grownups alike. Not only does the memory of its rich chocolaty aroma and creamy texture excite the eaters’ anticipation but its rich, delicious flavor can become a chocoholic’s dream.
Even in a week full of favorite dishes like Thanksgiving week has, easy chocolate dessert recipes have their place…right on the table. And my chocolate cream pie definitely found its place in my family’s meal plan this year.
This delicious gluten-free chocolate pie recipe will surprise you with how easy it is.
This easy banana bread recipe has been a favorite of ours for a long time. We like it every season of the year, and we especially like to have some for gluten-free snacks.
It tastes good alone, but it also is great with a flavored spread like apple butter or pumpkin cream. If I cut regular slices from the loaf like you see in the picture, they are so good to eat plain that we often don’t even think of adding something to them before the whole loaf is gone…especially if I leave it where my husband can see it.
Any time of year is my favorite time for gluten-free snacks, but in the summer I like to make things that take less time in the kitchen. These little bars of oatmeal and molasses are so easy to stir together that I don’t even need the mixer. I stir them together, pop the pan in the oven, set the timer and come back later.
These bars are sweet, so you might like them with less sugar than what I’ve called for. When I follow this recipe, my husband will eat them, too. That’s great because then I don’t need to make a separate pan of treats for him.
King Arthur Flour sent me a box of their new Gluten-Free Yellow Cake Mix to try. In the past I have tried a number of their other gluten-free mixes with very satisfying results, so I was looking forward to seeing how the yellow cake would turn out.
At first I couldn’t make up my mind whether to make cupcakes or a two-layer cake. The mix will make two 8” or 9” rounds layers, or 24 cupcakes. I finally decided on the cupcakes.
Making them was as easy as a mix can be….
This sweet, dense cake with apples, cherries and nuts – not to mention the raisins and spices that flavor it – has been a holiday favorite of ours as long as I can remember. When I started cooking gluten-free, it was among the first cakes I tried to adapt. My Aunt Mac could probably have told the difference, but this recipe of hers converted very well. In fact, when I bake it for a general crowd, it disappears fast.
With the maraschino cherries, you’ll have…
