Brilliant Gluten Free Coconut Macaroons, GF, Sugarfree option

I remember the first time that I had a coconut macaroon.  It was years ago at a friend's party and boy oh boy, I had been missing out.
I thought I'd eaten every cookie on the planet but I'd missed this one!
I love the sweet chewiness and honestly, I wanted to eat all of them or stuff them in my pockets and take them home.
After that, I had a few commercially made macaroons, but none ever lived up to my first homemade one.
Until I made these...

Gluten-Free Buckwheat Artisan Bread Boule

Would you like to make gorgeous gluten free Artisan bread? Today I'm going to show you how!

We all know that as gluten-free bakers we can't just whip up a classic recipe easily. We need to use a gluten-free formula that will perform correctly, but we can learn from the ancient techniques, and with the right combination of whole flours, starches and binders, make a bread that is very close and delicious.

I've been long distance baking with a friend in England who bakes with regular flour. I was inspired and a bit jealous after seeing her bread. I was determined to make a gluten-free artisan boule like she did and it was fun stepping up to the challenge.

So I put on my thinking cap and used what I've learned over the years baking bread. First of all, the classic recipe is all purpose flour, salt, yeast and water. I knew I needed to give the gluten-free bread structure to replicate the lack of gluten, so I used buckwheat and added some eggs. I liked the flavor of the buckwheat, but one of my testers said she wasn't fond of it. So the next time I made it, I used part buckwheat and part sorghum. My other tester loved it and said the dough was great to work with!

Skinny Gluten Free Low Glycemic Carrot Cake, grain free

I make this wonderful sugar free and gluten free carrot cake each year for our Easter celebration and it always comes out moist and delicious. It's a healthy and nutritious low carb carb that takes hardly any time at all to make. 

The secret is in the raisin sauce. Normally, I don't like the taste of raisins or dates in my baked goods, but oh my, it works perfectly and tastes incredible. To top it off, I used organic rainbow carrots from local growers and I think they made this cake even better.
