Gluten Free Victoria Sponge Sandwich Cake, refined sugar free

In honor of Victoria Day I made up a gluten free Victoria Sponge Sandwich Cake that's delicious, healthy and easy to make! The story goes that this was Queen Victoria's favorite cake recipe and I can certainly see why. It's rich with butter and jam, but in my healthy gluten free cake I cut out the sugar and replaced it with just a bit of local honey.

The jam soaks into the layers and adds a delicious flavor to the cake. It's even better the next day!

Asian Beefless Pot Sticker Recipe, vegetarian, gluten free

Asian Beefless Pot Sticker Recipe, vegetarian, gluten free
I am so impressed with the flavor and texture of Gardein's new beefless ground! It tastes so good I was eating it right out of the package. The beautiful spicy flavor inspired me to make up these gluten free pot stickers and lettuce wraps. My family went crazy for them and they are perfect for Meatless Mondays. You can even freeze the pot stickers for nights when you don't have much time to cook.

If every American ate meatless just 1 day/ week all year it would be the equivalent of taking ½ million cars off the road!

Grain Free Strawberry Clafoutis & Coulis, Flourless Dark Chocolate Brownies and Savoring Saturdays

I'm crazy about Clafoutis. My new sugar-free Clafoutis (pronounced Kla foo tee) is a baked French dessert of a soft cake over fruit. I make mine grain free, gluten free and sugar free! Traditionally made with cherries it adapts to any fruit beautifully. This time I used strawberries and made a strawberry coulis to top it with. Perfect for a low-carb dessert or breakfast!

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...
