Burnt Sugar Cake

So far, this is my favorite recipe from these little Pillsbury Bake-Off cookbooks. It’s amazing. Why it didn’t win first prize is baffling. The Burnt Sugar Cake from Pillsbury’s 3rd Grand National Bake-Off Contest, 1952 was developed by Dolores H. Schlesser, Junior winner from Iowa. I’ve made this cake a few times & every time I change […]

Mother’s Day Breakfast in Bed Menu

Give mom the gift of a gluten free, breakfast in bed this Mother’s Day! Links to some of my favorite gluten free recipes are below.  Let’s start off with a light & breezy punch made with fresh, Michigan fruits.  Michigan Punch … a main meal… Crustless Quiche for 2 and don’t forget dessert! Apple Crisp […]

Green Bean Casserole

I do love green bean casserole, but I’m not a fan of mushy, green beans and cream of muck-muck in a can. Traditional green bean casserole doesn’t have bacon anyway, so that’s strike number 2. Add the soup gluten with gluten fried onions and you get a triple whammy. This recipe does take longer than dumping a bunch of cans […]

Banana Splizza

I’m still working my way through all these Pillsbury Bake-off books. It’ll take me 20 years & I’m cool with that. Why I chose to cook a banana split in the middle of a snowstorm, is a bit baffling. California Dreamin’ maybe? This recipe for Banana Splizza  was created by Charisse Dooley of Tulsa, Oklahoma for […]

Gluten Free Pączki

Fat Tuesday is coming & around here, that means Pączki Day! The only tragedy in Pączki Day is…gluten free pączki are damn near impossible to find. Sure you could order them online, but that would cost a million dollars shipping and they’re already a day old before you set eyes on them. The best way to ensure a tasty, fresh, free […]

Aloha Banana Bread

I don’t often make New Year’s resolutions because, let’s face it, if I was an organized person I would not need a resolution to keep me in line. No amount of lecturing to myself will result in an OCD organizing queen with shelf labels in the linen closet & properly alphabetized spice racks. I have my sticky-notes and that […]

Chocolate Pie with Coconut Shortbread Crust

We’re up to the 6th Pillsbury Bake-Off Cookbook and the recipes just keep getting better! I made this Chocolate Pie for my sister for Thanksgiving dinner and she loved it so much, she stole the leftovers and ordered another for Christmas. Can’t say I blame her, it was an award winning pie recipe. Mrs. Robert Arnold from Green […]

Pork & Cheese Dip

To read the contents of our freezers, you would think I butchered Old McDonald’s entire farm. I have 3 hogs, a few turkeys, rabbits, too many chickens to count, a goat or two and a few leftovers from last year’s deer hunting. There may even be a goose or duck in there. No, I’m not a […]

Banana Cake with Caramel Frosting

  Another recipe from Grandma’s recipe box. A tasty home-style-comfort-food-potluck cake. I mix my own gluten-free flours and have put the recipe for fluffy flour in my E-BOOK. My fluffy flour mix works well for cakes, but any all-purpose gluten free flour should also work. Cake ingredients: 2 1/3 cups flour 1 2/3 cups sugar […]

Apple Bread Pudding

It’s common knowledge, at least among us gluten-free moms, that gluten-free bread is expensive; at least compared to its wheat-filled cousin. I usually buy Udi’s for my kids’ sandwiches. When it’s toasted, it makes great sandwiches. It holds-up to bacon, lettuce & tomatoes like a champ. Unfortunately, it’s sometimes full of holes so big the jelly oozes out […]
