Gluten-free Recipes – Baking for the Holidays – Spritz Cookies

By Kim Wilson / December 22, 2014 / 0 Comments

I’m rushing this new gluten-free cookie recipe to you, just in the time for the holidays! My mom always made spritz cookies at Christmastime when we were kids, but quite honestly, I wasn’t too keen on the cookie. My cousin, however, asked me to develop a gluten-free version, and this one is just great!

Gluten-free Pumpkin Cookie Recipe- using full can!

By Kim Wilson / November 5, 2013 / 10 Comments

One of my pet-peeves with some recipes is how they can ask for a partial item. 1/2 cup of crushed pineapple, 2 Tbsp. tomato paste, etc. Maybe I’m just not creative enough, but I have to wonder, what am I supposed to do with the leftover amount?! I have a major problem with wasting food…

Gluten-free Rosemary Molasses Cookies

Many years ago (when I was in high school) I volunteered at our local Shaker Village.  I mostly worked in the herb gardens, but also got involved with some restoration and art work too.  It was a great way to spend a summer.  Well, in any case, only one Shaker-based food from that time remains…

No-Bake Brownies (gluten-free and sugar-free)

By Kim Wilson / April 11, 2012 / 12 Comments

These tasty little treats are sweet, dark, rich and oily- as I remember my mom’s brownies to be when I was a kid.  But it’s all the pleasure, none of the guilt with these raw, fruit and nut-based brownies.  Besides being incredibly tasty, they are rich in good oils and calcium!  Definitely the best of…

As I’ve mentioned before, I’m working on finishing up revision/proofing of my first two books (Everyday Wholesome Eating and Everyday Wholesome Eating In the Raw) for a new printing.  I’ve ended up testing a number of recipes during this time- ones I just haven’t prepared in years.  Some are just great as is, others I’ve…

Gluten-free Tollhouse Cookie Bars

I hosted a whole foods gluten-free Pampered Chef party recently and I was able to get a lot of really cool stuff following the sale (with all the great hostess credits and discount offers).  I’d only been to two other parties in my life and I’d only gotten small items (like the garlic press, silicon…

Gluten-free Cookie Cutter Cookies (HEARTS for Valentine's Day!)

By Kim Wilson / February 13, 2012 / 6 Comments

Holidays always inspire more baking.  Yesterday afternoon, after we finished lunch, the little ones and I went to the kitchen island and made a batch of “cookie cutter cookies” in honor of Valentine’s day.  There’s probably some more appropriate title for this kind of cookie, but it eludes me right now.

Mint Carob Bars

By Kim Wilson / September 15, 2011 / 9 Comments

I created carob bars many years ago when I wanted a healthy alternative to “No Bake Cookies”.  Of course, since then, we’ve learned that cocoa/chocolate may actually have some beneficial properties (though the caffeine content continues to be a concern for many).  In any case, we know that carob is a particularly nutritious and beneficial…
