Gluten Free Lemon Bars

read the post

In the world of gluten-free delights, few treats stand out as prominently as classic Gluten-Free Lemon Bars. I’ve been making Ina Garten’s classic recipe for many years and found it produces the absolute best lemon bars. I make mine (as I do all my baked goods) gluten-free, but you certainly don’t have to. These bars […]

These caramel swirl gluten-free brownies are such an indulgent, delicious Valentine’s Day treat. And, a bonus they boast a surprisingly gooey center that will melt your heart! The secret to achieving a gooey center for any brownie recipe you follow is to watch your oven carefully and underbake your brownies slightly. There is really nothing […]

Salads are a staple in my diet and one of my favorite new recipes to create!

I grew up skiing in Deer Valley and have memories of the world’s best hot apple cider served across all the dining spots on the mountain. For me, hot apple cider is nostalgic so this spiced slow cooked hot apple cider has a special place on my holiday menu. As I grew up I’d serve […]

Holidays always call for classic comfort treats and make in advance–no fuss creations like these pumpkin snickerdoodles, that leave you time to enjoy family and friends.

M&M Cookies

I’ve never really met anyone who doesn’t love M&Ms or chocolate chip cookies, so this combo is a classic winner. I’m pretty religious about only ever serving chewy cookies (I just never understood crunchy cookies personally)–so, not over baking these is essential so that they stay nice and soft. I also love the idea of […]

Move over junk food, these craveable cauliflower bites may just take the place of loaded cheesy snacks. Made with just cauliflower, seasoning and cheese, these come out so crispy and flavorful I’d probably recommend doubling the recipe. Here’s a peek into the process: First, I steam the cauliflower briefly so it’s soft enough to smash […]
