  • Claire’s Amazing Banana Cake

    I’m getting back to my baking roots with this Banana Cake recipe.  You can make it with regular wheat flour, or with Authentic Foods Steve’s Gluten Free Cake Flour Blend like I do.  I usually make Banana Cake on a whim because I have lots of ripe bananas around and I’m not feeling like making banana bread.  It’s a full on layer cake, so it can be time intensive, but the results are outstanding (if I do say so myself).  One trick I do (since it’s just me and my husband at home), is get single serve containers and cut the cake to fit the containers and put them in the freezer.  The frozen cake can last up to 2 months, just thaw it at room temperature for about 30 minutes before eating.  I learned this trick from my cousin who used to bake wedding cakes. Several of my friends are always down… Read More

  • Gluten Free Spritz Cookies- Valentine’s Day Edition

    This post was originally posted in February of 2015 and was my first post on this blog as my old moniker “Gluten Free Avenger”.  In celebration of my blog turning 2 and because this is just a kick-ass recipe, I thought I would share it again.  I love to make spritz cookies for many holidays because you can make them into fun, holiday appropriate shapes and it happens to be my husband’s all time favorite cookie.  These cookies will disappear quickly with guests, so I usually make 2 batches (at the very least).  I remember when I brought a huge bucket of about 100+ of these cookies to my sister-in-law’s house for a holiday party and my step daughter and her friend snuck off with all the cookies.  By the time we finally found them, there were only about 10 cookies left.  They’re addicting….you have been warned. I started making the regular gluten-full… Read More

  • Easy Black Eyed Pea Recipe- Just in Time for New Year’s Day

    When I was 9 years old, my mom and I moved to Texas.  That’s where I first learned of the tradition of eating black eyed peas for good luck on New Year’s Day.  Given that we were from California, my mom would make our black eyed peas into a salad with raw veggies and a light dressing.  My husband on the other hand always made his grandfather’s simple and easy black eyed pea recipe with basically 3 major ingredients.   He’s been making this recipe for me for about 14 years now (we just celebrated the 15th anniversary of our first date on December 20, 2016) and I must say that it never disappoints. If you’re not familiar with the black eyed pea tradition for good luck, here’s a bit of backstory.  According to About Food: “On New Year’s Day, you’ll find people throughout the South eating black-eyed peas and greens……Eating black-eyed… Read More

  • Beef Stew

    Well, it’s finally getting chilly in Los Angeles….yes that mean a dip into the 60’s.  I can’t believe that I lived in New York City for 10+ years, I’ve lost my ability to handle cooler weather.  Now that we are having this cooler weather, I decided to bring out the slow cooker and this week I made beef stew (I called in Beef Bourguignon in the video, but it’s more like a beef stew ;-)) and just had to share it.  So, I made it live on Periscope on Monday, if you’re on Periscope please follow me so that you can catch my next live endeavor.  You can find me at:  https://www.periscope.tv/GFAvenger  So the Periscope and the recipe are below.
