Last year after our Passover Seder I took the leftover charoset and turned it into a rolled cake that I served my family a few days later on Easter. It was so good I was thinking about it all year and eagerly awaiting the leftovers so I could once again make this cake. Until I […]

Pizza is something of a favorite food for just about everyone. But once you can’t eat gluten anymore it becomes the sort of thing you lie awake at night fantasizing about. I’m not so much fantasizing for myself, but for The Boy. We’ve tried every frozen gluten free pizza crust I’ve found in various health […]
Here it is… drum roll please… the gluten free banana bread!
Since we’ve gone gluten free in the house I have spent most of my baking efforts of trying to master cookies and cakes. My fear/guilt that The Boy (and his non-gluten intolerant sister) will feel deprived of these things was palpable and so my attention was pretty strongly fixed on those items. But recently I’ve […]

At the time I was doing my low-fat diet that was, generally speaking, high in carbs and, more specifically, built on a series of low-calorie, low-fat, muffins that I […]
We just got through our first Thanksgiving gluten free. I need to give a shout out to the amazing extended family with whom we spend this holiday. All of them played along with our gluten free demands without the slightest complaint. In the end it was actually incredibly, and unexpectedly, easy. A total of two […]
Do these muffins look hearty? They do don’t they! Do they look sweet and moist, filling and satisfying? Maybe not. But that is how they taste. I love these muffins. They look like those little bricks of a “health food” muffin that are dry and tasteless and you have to tell yourself are good for […]
Have I mentioned how happy I’ve been to enjoy all these lovely baked goods on my diet? I think I have, but I honestly had no idea before this that it was so easy to make muffins and sweet breakfast breads so low fat and low calorie. It’s been a wonderful revelation.
