Gluten-Free Mini Caramel Apple Cakes

Gluten-Free Mini Caramel Apple Cakes by Alison Needham

Caramel apples are a fall favorite everywhere. But devastatingly, one cannot consume them whilst wearing braces (like my almost teen and her brothers before her).The solution? These tiny caramel apple cakes!I know that they aren’t exactly the same as a sticky caramel apple, but the flavor profile is. The cakes are moist and full of…

Gluten-Free Pumpkin Butter Toaster Strudel

Gluten-Free Pumpkin Butter Toaster Strudel by Alison Needham

Happily, the warm weather hasn’t kept me out of the kitchen! My new bakery, Ginger & Fox Bake Shop, has been busy with orders. And these little hand pies were a favorite last week. Filled with rich pumpkin butter (you can make it yourself, but store bought is fine too) and surrounded with flaky pie crust, they really are the best…

Gluten-Free French Apple Pie

Gluten-Free French Apple Pie by Alison Needham

I don’t know why it’s called “French” Apple Pie (or sometimes Dutch Apple Pie), I only know that is what we called the crumb-topped pies when I worked at the apple ranch many moons ago. There are, of course, many types of crumb to top a pie with, but only one really passes muster (and I am strongly opinionated in this matter). Oat…

Gluten-Free “Compost” Cookies

Gluten-Free “Compost” Cookies by Alison Needham

Somehow the entire month of September flew by me with nary a post in sight. And that is because I have some very, very exciting news to share! Thanks to California’s Cottage Food Act (AB 1616), I was able to open a bakery right out of my own home kitchen. Though I’ve only been open a week, I’ve already filled several orders for happy…

Gluten-Free Tomato Slab Pie

Gluten-Free Tomato Slab Pie by Alison Needham

You know when someone blogs about something awesome and you’re all–I WANT THAT…like right now? Yeah. That happened to me when I saw this tomato tart that Pioneer Woman made the other day. I had to have it. But unlike 90% of America, I can’t run down to the grocery store and pick up a pre-made, rollable pie crust to make it with.Nope.…

Fig & Prosciutto Salad + {Oregon GF Travel Tips}

Fig & Prosciutto Salad + {Oregon GF Travel Tips} by Alison Needham

Hi! I hope you have been enjoying your summer. I’ve spent mine hanging out with the family mostly–and also taking a culinary tour of Oregon, which I’m happy to report, is a great place for us gluten-free peeps to eat. Road trips are always a risk, especially with two teens and a preteen in the back seat. But ours was remarkably…

Gluten-Free BLT Pizza + {a giveaway} by Alison Needham

The lovely month of June is coming to a close. For my friend KC of G-Free Foodie who {rightfully} believes that birthdays are meant to be celebrated all the month long, this means that this is the very last day to celebrate her birthday until next year. So in honor of the last day of her birthday month, they’re giving away one of…

Gluten-Free Pizza Dough

Gluten-Free Pizza Dough by Alison Needham

I still cry about pizza. In fact, I did the other night at the VIP dinner at the Celiac Disease Foundation Conference. Someone posed the question, what foods do you miss from your gluten-eating days? And I said, unequivocally, the pizza from Pizzeria Mozza. Moments before I had been giggling with Erica from Celiac and the Beast about…

Gluten-Free Stove Top Macaroni & Cheese

Gluten-Free Stove Top Macaroni & Cheese by Alison Needham

My kids agree on practically nothing when it comes to dinner–this recipe for macaroni and cheese included. My middle son, under no circumstances, will eat pasta. My oldest son practically eats nothing but pasta (with meat sauce). And their sister prefers her pasta to come slathered with a creamy alfredo sauce or cheese. However…
