Coconut Macaroons Recipe (Gluten-Free)

We have been doing a lot of baking this holiday season, both gluten-free and regular. Our most recent creation was this coconut macaroon recipe which is delightfully gluten-free, a surprise to me. I thought coconut macaroons usually had flour in them, but when Allie and I made these coconut macaroons last week, there was no flour in them whatsoever. Allie and I love to cook together, and this was, of course, a fun experience. In fact, the recipe is so easy that she was able to do most of it all by herself, and she’s only 5!    Print Recipe Coconut … Read more

Chocolate Cherry Cake (Gluten-Free)

I almost didn’t post this amazing recipe, my friend. My gluten-free chocolate cherry cake sounds delicious (and is!) but looks ugly. I mean, truly hideous. It’s so bad that I didn’t even take a picture of the whole thing. What I have above is as good as it gets. As usual, my foibles make good learning experiences for you. I did some research after my regrettable mistake and found a way for you to make this cake Pinterest-worthy. I have included those instructions in the recipe below. Now, on with the post I wrote as the cake was baking (thus, … Read more

Cherry Almond Cake (It’s Gluten-Free but You Won’t Mind)

Cherry Almond Cake - Gluten-Free

Any time you use cherry and almond in the same sentence as dessert, I am right there with you. I adore cherry almond anything. I may even like cherry almond better than chocolate. Tough call. Stay with me through this next part. I have to tell you why I came to have this cake. Or just skip to the bottom. That’s where the recipe is. Yesterday, I explained how Allie got what nearly amounted to a birthday non-party for her third birthday whereas Grace had two pretty elaborate parties for her third birthday. With that in mind, let’s talk about … Read more

Gluten-Free Cheesecake That Everyone Will Love

gluten-free cheesecake

Joe and I dated over cheesecake. It’s the one dessert he really enjoys, and I often ordered a slice when we went out to dinner and shared it with him. Now that we’re married, I make him order his own. Today is our wedding anniversary, so I wanted to share our new favorite cheesecake recipe. I love cheesecake, but I am not very good at making it. In fact, the cheesecake above was the first one I ever made that didn’t crack on top. I don’t know why this particular one didn’t crack when all the others I’ve ever made … Read more

Chocolate Cherry Cheesecake

Chocolate Cherry Cheesecake

Imagine a layer cake with cherries in the center and rich, chocolate ganache covering the top and pouring down over the sides. Sounds decadent, doesn’t it? Now imagine the layers are made of cheesecake. That’s what this is – an Oreo cookie crust topped with a layer of cheesecake, then a layer of cherries, then another layer of cheesecake, and the whole thing is topped with chocolate ganache. I took this cheesecake to my church’s Thanksgiving service, and there was nary a morsel left to bring home. It was sliced and resliced because everyone wanted a morsel. I said to … Read more
