The (relative) importance of gluten free donut holes

When my gluten free son was little, my heart broke when I’d think of the things he couldn’t eat, and might never even try. Dunkin Donuts munchkins seemed to be the most common birthday treat that parents would bring to school, and my kid couldn’t touch them.

Good thing he doesn’t read the blog, because he would kill me for sharing this, but when he was about 7 or 8, he wondered aloud “what munchkins might taste like.” You can guess what happened next.

I know that with all of the struggles in the world, not having the donut that everyone else has is not at all important. But when your kid is little, it means … Read more

In the same spirit, I don’t generally provide nutrition information for my recipes (that, and it’s crazy labor-intensive to do it). The exception is when I offer a recipe as “lighter,” or “light.”

Since both fat (yum!) and sugar (yum!) are not only delicious but act … Read more
