FEATURED RECIPE

Gluten-Free Banana-Blueberry Muffin Cake

Image
Muffin Cake Madness
My partner in (culinary) crime- the infamous and ever-up-for-baking husband Steve- informed me our bananas were mucho ripe. In fact, to be completely accurate, he poked his head into my cozy little studio the other day and declared, Our bananas are ripe. I should bake something.
I looked up from my iMac and murmured Hmmm, in assent. 
But what, exactly?
Ripe bananas were calling. Begging to be a part of some grander life affirming tastebud tingling scheme. But do readers really need another banana cake recipe? I pondered, slurping cold coffee.

Conclusion? 

Why not?

Strawberry Spinach Salad with Berry Dressing

Don't cook. Go RAW. Go FRESH.
The older I get the more I crave simple. The sweet, relaxed comfort of home cooking. An impromptu picnic on the patio with family-style classics like horseradish spiked potato salad. Instead of growing worldly and sophisticated and dabbling with truffle oil, each new gray silver hair spins my taste hula hooping into simplicity faster than Lady Gaga can waggle. Well, maybe not that fast. She is pretty nimble. But you get my drift. I'm whipping up ten-minute rice stir-fries, not Coq au Vin. I’m blending up pomegranate smoothies, not roasting Duck a l'Orange.

And lucky me, the summer season is all about simplicity. Who needs complicated and fussy when the farmers’ markets are abundant with glorious, fresh ingredients? Vegetables in every color. Ripe and voluptuous fruits. And every one of them gluten-free. And dairy-free. That’s the beauty of it. No imitation here. No game of let’s pretend. This is nature’s bounty, pure and raw and bea…

Dark Chocolate Brownies- The Best Gluten-Free Recipe

Why bake a gluten-free brownie from scratch and not a mix?


Chocolate Brownie Love.
While baking mixes are perfectly acceptable in a pinch, and no doubt a boon to busy cooks on a gluten-free diet (well, honestly, who isn't busy these days, I ask you?), your taste buds will tell you why. In a heart beat, Darling.

Karina's Four Must-Try Gluten-Free Recipes

Four Gluten-Free Recipes You Must Try. Now.
Because time is a'wastin'.

Looking back was never a favorite pastime for me. I prefer looking ahead. Imagining the new. Rather than rehashing the past (excuse me while I yawn). Or at the very least, enjoying what hipster philosophers deem The Now. The Present. Here. Today. This minute.

It's all we've (really) got. This. Moment.

And here, where I sit, in the now, in the stream, rowing (ever so) gently, I am conjuring four lip smacking recipes. All gluten-free. All dairy-free.

And the best part?

These favorite recipes are so darn good you won't be pining for the past- those wheat-infested glory days of a bygone gluten era.

Nope.


Gluten-Free Strawberry Rhubarb Crisp-Crumble

A beautiful strawberry crisp.

Cherry blossoms are snowing pink. Love is in the air. House finches are singing. Magnolias are unfolding their velvet petals. Trees are budding lacy greens and pale sun-yellows.

In other words, Spring has sprung. And I've been craving crisp and crumble desserts. The easiest of baked fresh fruit sweets... lovely for springtime picnic, or summer backyard get-together. A perfect ending to a grill-side supper on the deck, al fresco.

Although I have featured a strawberry rhubarb crisp in the past (kissed with a hint of balsamic vinegar) I decided to play around with an alternative topping to the classic pairing of tart rhubarb and sweet ripe strawberries. And I grabbed a secret ingredient from my pantry.

Can you guess what it is?
