  • Frosted Sugar Cookies

    We made sugar cookies this week and it was oh so fun. I love baking with my kids and sugar cookies are perfect because the kids can get so involved: mixing, measuring, pouring, rolling out the dough, playing with cookie cutters, and then decorating. It’s the perfect afternoon activity. And then we get a sweet reward at the end! We used this recipe as our base, I made a few modifications (outlined in the updated recipe below) so I could make them egg-free and refined sugar-free. I ...
  • Gluten-Free Gingerbread House

    Gluten-Free, Dairy-Free, and Egg-Free Gingerbread House And it tastes (and looks) darn good!  If I do say so myself. It was definitely a big project, but Callum and I had a lot of fun creating our first ever gingerbread house! I used my recipe for gluten-free, dairy-free, egg-free gingerbread cookies and it worked perfectly. The hardest part was finding a dairy-free frosting recipe to glue it all together. I asked my friend Heidi from Adventures of a Gluten-Free Mom and she sent ...

  • Gluten-Free Sugar Cookies

    Just in time for Hallowe'en – a sugar cookie breakthrough. I was feeling a little adventurous today – Callum and I needed something fun to do that didn’t involve me playing with an animal, or me being an animal (animal obsessed seems to be an understatement). So I decided to try and make Hallowe'en sugar cookies –pumpkins and ghosts. A few months ago (before I dove headfirst into the GF blogging world) I was sure that we’d never have fun and cutesy shaped cookies again. How on ...
  • Heather’s Shnolasses Nookies – or Gluten-Free Ginger Molasses Cookies

    This is an ode to my girl Heather who makes these yummy cookies for her boys (okay, it’s not an ode as I’m too tired to write poetry right now).  Heather’s are for the gluten tolerant though.  And my goodness, they are delish. Naturally, I took her recipe and made it for the gluten intolerant (and for my vegan chicks too).  Pete was happy and so was everyone else.  They’re nice and spicy, so very appropriate for Fall.  Have you tried the Starbucks Ginger Cookie?  This cookie is ...
