Gluten Free | Carrot Cake | Dairy Free Cream Cheese

Gluten Free | Carrot Cake | Dairy Free Cream Cheese

Really yummy gluten-free carrot cake!                       The cake started to lean to the side after sitting at room temperature. If you want to do a “layer” type cake as seen here, I suggest you keep the cake refrigerated at all times.  You can also do a sheet cake or cupcakes to avoid this problem. Tofutti brand cream cheese contains soy but would yield a firmer cream cheese frosting that may be less likely to cause the layers to slide.

Candy Cane Cake Pops | Gluten Free | Dairy Free | Dye Free

Candy Cane Cake Pops | Gluten Free | Dairy Free | Dye Free

I love making cake pops for gifts. Kids love them and they are super easy to make. I posted about Easter cake pops in 2012 which I made for Sammy’s preschool class. They were a big hit. For Christmas this year, I decided to make cake pops again but with a holiday twist…sprinkled with crushed dye-free candy cane. To start, I used Sammy’s favorite cake mix, King Arthur Flour (featured above). It’s gluten, dairy, soy and nut-free. Be sure to let the cake pops cool completely before dipping them in chocolate. The chocolate can be easily melted in the microwave. Just heat...

GF Dairy-Free Pumpkin Cheesecake

GF Dairy-Free Pumpkin Cheesecake

One holiday desserts I miss from my gluten and dairy consuming days is pumpkin cheesecake. It has so much dairy, I never thought I could reproduce it in a dairy-free version. I missed it so much, I decided to give it a try. I am not a big soy advocate but for now, the only decent dairy-free cream cheese and sour cream options we have on the market are by Tofutti and are soy based. Desperate for my pumpkin cheesecake fix, I decided to experiment with the soy based products. The results were stunning. I was very happy with both the taste and texture. You just can’t imagine how happy this...

Gluten and Dairy-Free Baked Caramel Apples

Gluten and Dairy-Free Baked Caramel Apples

I have a special place in my heart for caramel apples. I remember having my first warm caramel apple (with the nuts sliding off because the caramel had not solidified yet) at a carnival in Michigan…pure heaven. I’ve been a sucker for warm caramel and nuts ever since. My cousin, Karen (also from Michigan) introduced this recipe to me years ago during my gluten and dairy consuming days. I became very excited when I realized it is a naturally gluten-free recipe. Now my challenge is to replace the dairy. The first step I took was to research a vegan caramel recipe. It didn’t...

Pumpkin Pecan Bars

Pumpkin Pecan Bars

I love having this recipe for last minute, unexpected potluck dinners and parties in the fall and early winter. Back in my “gluten eating days,” I made this for many parties with great success. People love it. I made it tonight for the first time, gluten free and vegan. It was a success. The texture was definitely different but the taste was still the same and, if you’d never had the gluten version, you would have never known the difference. Pumpkin Pecan Dessert Bars – Gluten Free and Vegan (can be made without nuts) One box gluten free yellow cake mix (I prefer...

GF Apple Cider Donuts

GF Apple Cider Donuts

I grew up in Michigan where apple orchards are abundant. Going to apple cider mills every fall and enjoying fresh steaming hot apple cider donuts right out of the fryer and pressed apple cider is a way of life for “Michiganders.” I always loved the fall season. In Michigan, the leaf color change is amazing. The beautiful colors coupled with the seasonal fall flavors, apple and cinnamon, is intoxicating. It’s one of the things I really miss about Michigan (besides my family, of course). A couple years ago I discovered Applehill in Placerville which is a lovely fall getaway...
