The gluten/dairy free version of the Barefoot Contessa’s Coconut Cake

This cake is positively sinful.  I don’t recommend baking it if you are dieting.  It is dense and moist; you will want to eat more than just one slice!    I first made this cake for my mom’s birthday party.  My dad bought my mom a fabulous cake from a local bakery, but of course,…

No Bake Granola Crispy Treat Bars

Dairy Free Chicken Burritos

When life is hectic, crock pots come in very handy.  I cooked a whole 4.5 pound free range organic chicken in my crock pot yesterday.  We ate off of it for dinner, but still had quite a bit left over.  Tonight is going to be another busy evening, so I decided to make dinner early. …

Dairy Free/Vegan Warm Maple Sesame Drink

Just in time for the chilly fall weather!!

The Gluten Free German Puffed Pancake

  I had never heard of a German Puffed Pancake until my sister in law told me what it was. It’s basically just one big puffed up pancake baked in the oven, normally in a cast iron skillet. It sounded intriguing, so I thought I would try it.   The result? Something very similar to…
