Pumpkin Muffins

Pumpkin muffins are a must in October. Simply a must. Just likeĀ  Starbucks’ spiced pumpkin latte or carving jack-o’-lanterns. And not only are these gluten-free, vegan and delicious, but they also make your house smell incredible. I’ve been wanting to make these for about a week, but I didn’t have the flour. So last night […]

Lemon Poppy Seed Bundt Cake

After a mad dash to the store to pick up some poppy seeds (who has those lying around?), my older sister and I finished this cake (recipe from The Allergen-Free Baker’s Handbook). Personally, I found it a little heavy, but she loved it. If you don’t eat poppy seeds, I’m sure the cake will taste […]

Orange Marmalade Tea Biscuits

These tea biscuits are from Cybele Pascal’s The Allergen-Free Baker’s Handbook. My making them came about from a Pride and Prejudice marathon with my mom and sisters. And I’m not talking Keira Knightly. I’m talking Colin Firth. And 5 hours. To fortify ourselves for the long, but wonderful road ahead, and to get in the […]

Whatever the reason, curling up […]

Chocolate Zucchini “Bread”

Zucchini! The one I used in this recipe was huge (as you can see), and I didn’t even use all of it. And you guessed it: it was part of my urban farm class harvest. I’ve always loved zucchini bread/cake, even before I knew I was gluten intolerant. There must be something about the vegetable […]

Blueberry Scones

I’d never had a scone before today. When I think of scones, I picture high class hotel room-service or the traditional “event” of teatime. Today, people buy their assorted pastries and scones from Starbucks–all loaded with sugar, cream, butter, and glaze. Suffice it to say that my first bite of these blueberry scones surprised me: […]

Blueberry Coffee Cake

You know what July is? Blueberry Season! When I was picking berries the other day for this recipe, my friend told me it reminded her of a book she read when she was young called Blueberries for Sal. In it, a little girl named Sal and her mother, and a baby bear and his mother, […]
