I wanted to make a walnut paste to be used on pasta or when chilled even on crackers or celery, but the recipes I found contain raw garlic. I really wanted to make a walnut paste with roasted garlic, therefore, I began a new experiment. I thought about using pine nuts, but I wanted to create something yummy for everyone that was affordable. You make this as a paste or as a walnut pesto sauce.

These gluten free chocolate chip cookies are wonderful! One member was in a panic when she couldn’t find the recipe. She said they are her family’s favorite gluten free cookies. One of my cookbook recipe testers rated them 10/10, excellent!
Traditional strawberry shortcake recipes are made with layers of angel food cake with a layer of whipped cream or strawberries and topped with one of the same. I used a plain gluten-free cookie recipe to line a ramekin; baked it; and tossed it in the freezer for a couple of hours. Once frozen I made … Continue reading Gluten Fee Strawberry Shortcake Ice Cream with Cookie Crust

Brioche is reminiscent of the first breads ever made. When Marie-Antoinette said, “Let them eat cake!” she was referring to a bread much like brioche, in between an egg bread and cake. I watched Martha Stewart make brioche buns on her Friday, April 30, 2010 episode, and I just had to figure out a way … Continue reading Gluten Free Brioche
This is my first stab at creating a gluten free brownie recipe. It turned out very chewy, just what I had in mind. They are not cake-like at all. I used potato starch in this one. Next time I may try using almond flour just because I love the taste of it, but this time I … Continue reading Chewy Gluten Free Brownie Recipe
I saw another great dessert on Martha Stewart’s Show last week, Corn Muffins with Pear and Candied Ginger. Of course I had to create a gluten free muffin recipe version.
