The Best Gluten-Free Pecan Pie Recipe

Before my bariatric surgery, I loved pecan pie. It was my favorite pie ever, and I made a lot of them. And ate them. No holiday went by without a decadent pecan pie. When I went gluten-free, I thought I wouldn’t be able to eat another pecan pie, but then I had a thought. I never loved the crust of the pie anyway, so why not adjust the recipe a bit and make the pie without the crust? I did it, and the pie was a crazy success. As you can see in the photo above, the pie was sturdy enough to … Read more

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

S’mores Cheesecake with Homemade Hot Fudge Sauce

On Wednesday, while Grace was taking a nap (she’s been quite sick), Allie and I made a s’mores cheesecake to bring some of our favorite flavors together. I had a new cheesecake recipe to try out, and we haven’t had a campfire in a while to get our s’mores fix, so it seemed like a good combination. Was it ever a good combination! That is the understatement of the year. Every bite of this rich cheesecake was loaded with the sticky goodness of marshmallows and the rich sweetness of my homemade hot fudge, and it was – dare I say … Read more

Chocolate Orange Hand Scrub Recipe

Chocolate Orange Hand Scrub Recipe

We had a pamper yourself day at MOPS last week. There were stations set up around the room with massage chairs and nail polish and assorted paraphernalia. One of the areas was a craft station where we made hand scrubs. I’m not a hand scrub kind of person. I think I still have two salt scrubs that I bought for myself in my teen years. Or maybe I purged them in the last great bathroom decluttering. Probably the latter. At any rate, I was pretty excited to make a scrub and give it to my mother, whose skin has been … 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
