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 BAKED PENNE WITH SPICY SAUSAGE

I’ve been fortunate to have traveled to Italy five times in the last 18 years; my first trip was a two-week stint with a group of fellow college students as part of a team to help renovate an apartment space for a pastor of a local church in Rome. It […]

GLUTEN-FREE BBQ PORK CAST-IRON SKILLET PIZZA

As I’m certain is true for most of the U.S., we like pizza in this house and in fact, have pizza at least once a week at the old Smith Bites Homestead. And while we adore a sourdough or yeasted gluten-free crust, there are times when I don’t have dough […]

GLUTEN-FREE TIRAMISU BUCHE DE NOEL

LACTOSE-FREE SMOKED SALMON PARTY DIP

The Professor and I are in a little bit of a shock to find ourselves mid-November already; I’m not sure why, but when I was younger, I wanted nothing more than to grow up and become an adult. As an adult, I want time to stand still so I can […]

TWICED-BAKED POTATO JACKETS WITH ROSEMARY

The Professor has been in LA at a college-related workshop all week and while I’ve missed him, I also know he’s had a great time; so far, the group has visited the Dancing With Stars set to watch this week’s live performances as well as a trip to the DreamWorks […]

PUMPKIN-GINGER SMOOTHIE

Well friends, I am plum-tuckered, spent, zapped and officially feel as if I could sleep for the next two months; I’ve been traveling since September and I haven’t been home much these past several weeks. But I also have to say that I’ve never been more inspired, humbled and ready […]
