Stack of Gluten Free Pancakes

I’ve been working to develop the perfect gluten-free pancake recipe for two years (!) After making (and eating) batch after batch, making tiny tweaks each time, I’m finally 100% happy with the recipe. I’m so excited to finally share my favorite gluten-free pancakes with you!

I’ve been making a double batch of these on Sundays, and then storing the extras in the fridge for a quick breakfast during the rest of the week. They make a nourishing canvas for all of the amazing late-summer fruit in season right now.

Quinoa Cucumber Salad with Feta, Dill & Mint

This quinoa cucumber salad is a riff on a favorite farro salad I shared here back in 2013. I don’t eat glutenous farro anymore but I’ve been craving the flavors of cool cucumbers and thinly sliced radish against chewy grains and loads of fresh herbs. Quinoa to the rescue!

Gluten-Free Cherry Clafoutis

When cherries are at their peak, this French dessert is easy to whip up. Somewhere between a dutch baby and a pudding cake, gluten-free cherry clafoutis combines fresh cherries steeped in brandy or whiskey with a vanilla scented almond flour batter. Easy peasy summer dessert bliss.

I’ve been guilty of cherry hoarding this summer. I just can’t resist snapping up a bag or two when I see them, all plump and sweet, for a brief period in July. Golden and blush-hued Raniers are especially a treat. As such, we’ve ended up with entirely too many cherries in the fridge, more than we can possibly eat.

The Quest for a Healthier Homemade Fudgesicle Recipe

Full disclosure: Though I spent many childhood summers nomming strawberry, coconut, and lime fruit-only popsicles, as well as ice cream bars, Italian ices, and loads of Coffee Heath Bar Crunch ice cream, I can’t remember ever having eaten a classic Fudgesicle. Nor do I have any desire to. So my version may or may not taste like the classic. But I can assure you, it tastes delicious. And it definitely does not taste vegan or naturally-sweetened.
