S’mores Pie {Gluten Free, Dairy Free}

  I haven’t really decided how I feel about pie {despite this picture}. This is probably a surprising statement to my family, because at my wedding reception we had pie, pie, pie and more pie {at my request}.  But now a days, I just really am not that into it. I cant bring myself to bake a fruit pie. It [...]

Chocolate Chip and Walnut Blondie Bars {Gluten Free, Dairy Free}

I haven’t really felt like baking these past few days. Or maybe it has been weeks. So, instead of baking I decided to pick up  a book and read a little. I came across these mystery books, where the main character owns a bakery {and solves murders in her free time}. It is hard to read a whole chapter about [...]

Gingerbread Whoopie Pies with Maple Syrup {Gluten Free, Dairy Free}

I am still celebrating Maple Syrup season {although it is shortly to come to an end}. The jug of pure Maple Syrup is taunting me from the fridge. Most days, I waver between three things: 1) wanting to drink spoonfuls of syrup 2) wanting to eat stacks of pancakes with puddles of syrup 3.) wanting to bake something with syrup [...]

Sugar Cookies (Gluten Free, Dairy Free)

I love making sugar cookies with my kids. We make sugar cookies often, as it seems to be one of their favorite activities {they love the cookie cutters, the frosting, the EATING!}. But I digress. I would hate to think that some Gluten Free’rs {and Dairy Free’rs) out there are not making sugar cookies because they simply haven’t found a [...]

Brown Sugar Cake with Maple Syrup Frosting {Gluten Free, Dairy Free}

Last weekend we went to a few maple syrup houses {sugar shacks} to soak up the smells, drink up the syrup, and support some local farmers. The “shacks” that the maple syrup is made in are not really shacks most of the time. Many are outfitted with tables and kitchens so that they can host pancake breakfasts.  This one {below} [...]
