This sandwich loaf I made the other day was so popular that I need to make more just to be able to make this dinner. Yes, around our house sometimes breakfast is for dinner. This recipe was so easy and so simple. It’s one of the recipes I’m making sure my daughters have carefully tucked away […]

One of our daugthers is home sick. It’s one of those 24 hour stomach bugs that happens even to the healthiest of us. After all, if we never get sick, how would our immune system build itself up? She needs comfort and sometimes comfort is as simple as a loaf of bread, and a tender […]
This morning was one of THOSE mornings. Fruit overripe in the fruit bowl. quick breakfast needed for my twin 15 year old athletes, scurrying about the house trying to gather their sports equipment, school books and lunch., I wanted to give them a warm breakfast, something is really fast and out the door yummy. […]
Poof, done, dinner. @jovial brown rice penne,@hemplers andouille sausage, @cutnclean kale. #glutenfree #DairyFree, #1/2hourdinner
National Pie Day is today. Yes, I know it isn’t 3/14. But the American Pie Council says that it is today, and who can argue with them? This gluten-free blueberry crumb pie was actually made for my husband last Friday as a congratulations for getting through a very busy week at work. We have so […]
I wanted a simple, quickly mixed and fast to prepare muffin for those school mornings. This one fits the bill. By combining the dry cereal mixture with the milk, then allowing it to sit for a few minutes, you alleviate the crunch of uncooked grains but retain the nice toothsomeness. Feel free to make it […]
This month, we’re reaching into the past for Vintage Side Dishes. You know, the ones that are truly missed when they aren’t on the table, glances from your brother to the aunt who always spends the morning creating the vegetable. The traditional ones of your youth, like these stuffed acorn squash. Cooking a welcoming Thanksgiving for […]
When you have those lonely brown spotted Appaloosa bananas on the counter, do you feel a pang? My frugal soul cringes just a bit when I have a few bananas that look like these. I know I could mix up a batch of pancakes, or muffins. But my long time goal has been a crisp […]
When the winds are blowing and my house might lose power, I make chicken and dumplings in my stockpot. Even when the storm is Hurricane Sandy, clear across the country. I make chicken and dumplings. Because soup is hot and wet, filling, comforting, a way of saying that all will be ok. Although Hurricane Sandy […]
This seems to be the last blast of summer in the Pacific Northwest. The time when all foods start to turn toward orange like butternut squash and pumpkin. The time when baking is a thoroughly enjoyable pastime, warming hearts and the kitchen too. I’m not quite ready to let go of the amazing stone fruits […]
When a good friend asked me recently for a killer gluten-free, dairy-free cake recipe for a friendly competitive potluck, I considered.
Time is short for construction, the party is Saturday, but the friend who wants to make this cake is willing to try anything truly spectacular.
Then again, battling the heat and standing time of a potluck situation would make that a bit risky.
As lovely as a pie might be, spectacular isn’t an adjective I use to describe most.
Tough to transport and how to add that wow factor?And then it hit me.
This amazing cake I had made for a baby shower would be perfect!
Bob’s Red Mill Almond meal for the flours
Whole organic oranges for flavor, moistness and texture
Eggs for lift.
Elegant, pretty and perfect!
Well, almost perfect. The flavor is amazing but the appearance is quite plain.

So I debated the trick of stenciling the cake top, but even that didn’t have the true wow factor.
Danielle also loves chocolate, but her dairy reaction means that she is limited to the dark kind.
So I decided to combine the cake with a dark chocolate robe of dairy free ganache.
Dark, sexy chocolate makes everyone want a piece.
I love the surprising pop of orange color when you cut into this cake.
And you will too.Feel free to let it sit a day or so, it gets even better. I didn’t want to give away the secret so I didn’t add chocolate dipped orange peel to the decorations, but you can.
Competitive potluck? There is to be a judging of the various entries and a prize awarded for the people’s choice.
I’m betting on this one. How about you?

The reentry to normal life post BlogHer Food conference is a bit extreme.
Coming home to my comfortable, casual and cluttered home is a bit of a shock.
I’ll be writing more, once I get my cup of tea.

Most people are fortunate enough to simply go to their neighborhood store, pick up a loaf of unsliced bread for stuffing, or a bag of big croutons and call it good. For us gluten-free folks, that is rarely an option, although in a pinch I have been known to cut up a loaf of Rudi’s […]
