Menu Monday: June 30th

Just a quick post to share my menu for the week with you. Most of this week’s recipes are from a cookbook published by my high school. I was pleasantly surprised to find several recipes that sounded good and did not have a lot of gluten containing ingredients. Replacing the meat in some of these […]

What Are Your Favorite Cookbooks?

Gluten Free Red Velvet Cake

Gluten Free Red Velvet Cake

There are so many things that I should tell you about this gluten free Red Velvet Cake.  I should tell you about how I baked it this morning while wearing a wrap dress, floral apron, high heels and pearls and looked like I had stepped right out of the 1950s. I should tell you how […]
