Skinny Gluten-Free Almond Frangipane Cake, reduced sugar and calories

Years ago when I was growing up we would go to the Pike Place Market and get croissants with almond paste filling. They were my favorite things in the world. This gluten free almond cake tastes just like them.
Some sort of magic happens when you make a frangipane cake. It gets flaky on the outside and crisp on the bottom and it has a moist almond custard cakey filling inside. It's seriously out of this world.
After seeing some of the classic versions of this cake I decided to reduce the sugar and butter way down to make it healthier for us and guess what? It didn't hurt the magic at all...

Gluten-Free Healthy Ginger Chai Low Fat Muffins, sugar free

Sometimes I just want a muffin that tastes like a muffin. You know what I mean? I love eating super healthy but once in awhile I want a fluffy tender fragrant muffin. I don't eat sugar though, so when I saw Jules' beautiful original recipe I thought, I can work with this! I made a few changes and they turned out awesome. Fragrant with Chai spices and made from the non-GMO ingredients, you will feel good making these healthy muffins for your family!

Spring Decor, Vegan "Milk" Chocolate and Savoring Saturdays

Happy Spring from Savoring Saturdays!

I love Spring don't you? Suddenly everything is blooming and our orange trees smell so sweet that they inspired me to make a yeast free new soda bread that is rich with orange zest and nutty grains. You've got to try it!  I'm also in the mood to decorate. My Pinterventures has great ideas on how to make a darling Spring Mantel for Easter and don't miss the Vegan sugar-free chocolate!
