Recipes

These recipes are some of my own, some from others that I have tweaked, or links to other recipe blogs. I’ve noted that some recipes are fan favorites. That means they got 4-star reviews from gluten-free and non-gluten-free eaters.

Most of the recipes that follow are free from yeast, gluten, eggs, dairy, soy, and nuts. I have tried to note that after the title for each recipe. I do not have to eat nut free, but I cook for friends that do. Some of my recipes contain nuts, but subbing with sunflower butter and omitting nuts should make those recipes nut-free as well.

As a general rule, be wary of subbing flours and other ingredients in these recipes- especially without researching first. I had many flops doing that, including almost setting cookies on fire (still working on that Lebkuchen recipe). I have set a pot holder on fire while getting cookies out of the oven, but that’s a story for another day.

Happy Cooking!
