GLUTEN-FREE SUMMER PEACH GALETTE

The Professor and I bought 40 pounds of Georgia peaches last summer and at the time, it seemed like a lot of peaches . . . it was a lot of peaches and we wondered if we’d finish them all over the fall and winter months before this season rolled around.

GLUTEN-FREE CARA CARA ORANGE POUND CAKE

Who doesn’t love sweet winter oranges, especially when said oranges are zested and the tequila-sunrise-colored juice is hand-squeezed into a glass measuring cup – a few splashes of orange oil ripple towards the edge like ink dots. Fresh-from-the-farm eggs whipped with sugar become light and airy; flour is added in alternating batches with the juice and batter […]

We’re in the throws of winter here in the Midwest – although we managed to dodge big blizzard, ‘Jonas’, of 2016 and for that I am grateful (I mean seriously, 40-inches of snow in 24 hours?!!). However, there is something to be said about being snowbound while the white stuff tumbles furiously from the sky – it […]

It’s been a great summer here at the Smith Bites Homestead; it is the first summer where The Professor didn’t teach during the break and we’ve had more than eight weeks to dig in our garden, work on our home and just simple be – sleep late, stay up late, read books, have friends over, […]

It was nearly 20 years ago when I packed up my house in the Pacific Northwest and moved to the Midwest; I didn’t know anyone here other than a few young adults from my church who were attending the same college I was going to attend. August was also the first time I’d ever heard […]

The Professor and I have been spending our summer working outdoors, digging in our garden beds and fighting off the critters for our share of the vegetables; so far it’s been critters who have reigned supreme but we’re replanting and hope we get to enjoy more than a handful of this year’s veggies. Such is […]

GLUTEN-FREE SOUR CHERRY DOUGHNUTS WITH CHERRY-VANILLA GLAZE

How’s your summer so far? While the calendar says that summer has indeed begun, our weather has not quite cooperated – the rain has been relentless with flooding and I swear the kamakaze mosquitos fly in formation with me as their number one target – oof!

BLUEBERRY MERINGUE ROULADE WITH LEMON CURD

I have spring on my mind even if Mother Nature isn’t quite cooperating; we enjoy a handful of glorious days with perfect temperatures and Robin’s Egg blue skies and 48 hours later it’s overcast and gloomy. However, my peonies have poked their plumy-pink stems up through the ground as has our rhubarb patch so I […]

GLUTEN-FREE MAPLE-BACON DOUGHNUTS

Doughnuts. The mere mention of doughnuts and my knees grow weak; glazed, frittered, cream-filled, jelly-filled, cinnamon dusted, powder sugar dusted, nut-topped, plain, fried or baked, I’ll admit to being an equal opportunity eater of all things doughnuts.

GLUTEN-FREE RICOTTA CHEESECAKE WITH STRAWBERRY SPOON FRUIT

It all started with meatballs and a piece written by an extroverted freelance writer with a desire to gather friends, family and strangers around her table and to share food and build community. ‘Friday Night Meatballs‘ became a movement of sorts and Facebook exploded with people who wanted to create their own Friday Night experiences. We really liked the concept too and while […]

It’s the day before Thanksgiving and while the family celebration will not be in our home this year, we still find ourselves in the kitchen baking; I guess some habits are hard to break. My family is spread out all over the United States from one coast to the other and a few States in between […]
