It is a perfect bread to put out for company, serve on Thanksgiving, or bake up in small loaf pans for holiday gifts. Last summer, when I asked readers to send me their favorite tried and true recipes, I received a TON o [...]

Yes. Oats are gluten-free, but read on for more important details before you reach for that bag of oats! I’ve started getting a crazy number of comments on my Facebook videos saying things like: “Oats aren’t gluten-free.” “How is this gluten-free if it uses oats?!” “You need to stop calling this glute [...]

We are so thrilled to share that our little family is growing and we’re expecting another little bundle of joy!!

What’s not to love? These tiny and tall cakes were inspired by this rectangular mini loaf pan. The cavities are about 2 X 3.75 inches and I thought bak [...]

It’s Saturdayyyyyyy! This week totally kicked my butt between a broken laptop, a rough night of sleep due to Joseph’s seasonal allergies, unscheduled pediatrician visits, and errands galore, that I collapsed onto the couch last night and cried uncle.

Going Through a Rough Patch

Going Through a Rough Patch
It’s the quintessential symbol of Halloween: the Jack-O-Lantern. Fortunately, it’s also one of the easiest designs for a baker to make. Just take one round cake, ice it in orange, add a cartoony face, and…voilá! AAAEEIII!! Er. Heh, sorry. Let’s try that again. Voila! That’s…not a cake.   [rol [...]

Halloween "Huh?"s

Halloween "Huh?"s
For today’s cakes I have no answers. Only questions. Uh, what’s up with her nose? (Or should I say “down with her nose?”) I like to think it’s just a wart, but I get the feeling that it’sss…not.   Why is the toilet paper angry?   What do colorful sperm have to do with Halloween?(Granted, [...]
