Yellow Cake with Creamy Chocolate Frosting

Chocolate Cake - Overview

As the only baker in my family, I am responsible for making everyone’s birthday treats. I find the process of baking so relaxing. I really enjoy tweaking various recipes to play around with the ingredients. I’ve made these One Bowl Chocolate Cupcakes on countless occasions. They are always a hit. While I will never turn down a chocolate cake, I’ve been craving a yellow cake. I have to admit I gave a few boxed cake mixes a try out of desperation. They were pretty awful. They tasted nothing like the traditional yellow cake I remember before going gluten free.

Blueberry Banana Bread (Gluten Free) (Vegan)

Banana Blueberry Bread (Gluten Free) (Vegan) 2

A warm slice of bread topped with a dab of butter or touch of jelly is quite possibly one of the best things to have for breakfast. I have not had any type of bread for breakfast in a long time. I’ve been stuck in a breakfast rut. I have the same thing EVERY MORNING. It’s nothing exciting. I have a couple ounces of yogurt mixed with flax and chia seeds. It tastes fine. It gets my day started but it does not make my tastes buds dance.

Gluten Free Granola Bars

No-Bake Coffee Chocolate Chip Granola Bars

It seems like everyone I know is busy. A busy life means you sometimes need a snack you can eat on the go. A handful of nuts or an apple are suitable snacks but sometimes you want something a little more satisfying. One of my favorite snacks is a granola bar. There are endless types of ingredients that can go into a granola bar. The¬†No-Bake Coffee Chocolate Chip Granola Bars¬†pictured above are delicious. However, sometimes I just don’t feel like making my own snacks.
