Oatmeal Chocolate Cranberry Cookies
Yesterday’s big snowstorm really made me crave oatmeal cookies. I found another great GF recipe from Bob’s Red Mill, and changed it a little to include chocolate chips and dried cranberries instead of raisins. If you’re a traditionalist, then you can omit these and use raisins. Ingredients 1 1/2 cups Bob’s Red Mill GF All-Purpose Flour 3 cups GF Rolled Oats 1...

Ingredients 3 cups fresh raspberries -or- blackberries - frozen won’t work because...
This risotto is amazing! I found the recipe from AllRecipes.com, and slightly changed it. The recipe is time-intensive and takes about 30-40 minutes prep time, plus 20-30+ minutes cooking time (longer if you live at altitude). Ingredients 6 cups chicken broth, divided *I used Swanson’s which I confirmed online that it’s GF 3 tablespoons olive oil, divided 1 pound portobello...

Awesome indeed. This pie was incredibly tasty, and you’d never know it was GF.

Chocolate chip cookies!
One of my fondest memories growing up is making homemade chocolate chip cookies with my mom and sister. We’d bake up a big batch, and when mom would take a break to catch a few minutes of her favorite soap opera, my sister and I would sneak a few bites of the cookie dough. Sneaky sneaky, tasty tasty! For both the enjoyment of dough and end-result tasting, I was super psyched to try this...
Chocolate Cake #2 - Success!
Mmmm…chocolate Last Monday, after the almond flour chocolate cake disaster, I felt motivated to try again. This time I found a simple flourless recipe, consisting of semisweet chocolate, butter, sugar, cocoa powder, eggs, & vanilla extract. I decided against any doubling this time for fear of what happened with the almond flour fiasco. The most complicated part of this recipe is...

Sounds simple enough, however, living at altitude always poses its unique set of baking weirdness (i.e. I’m always increasing baking time by at least 5-30 minutes). I used a recipe from a local chef, Elana Amsterdam,...
