The carrot, with its naturally high sugar content and its deep, reddish orange-colored glow is a healthy addition to cake recipes. For centuries cooks used carrots in their cakes because they did not have easy access to sugar like we have today. Not such a bad thing most of us would agree.
Three cups of grated carrots go into this moist, spiced gluten-free carrot cake recipe, adding carotene, a nutrient that your body uses to make vitamin A. The cream cheese frosting is simple to make and adds a rich balance to this sweet cake. This is my son's favorite gluten-free birthday cake.

Give candy. Get candy. Hide candy. Find candy. Candy. CANDY!
Easter was one of my favorite holidays as a child, second only to Halloween on a childhood scale of candy satiety. Today as a sensible grown-up and health-oriented to boot, the thought of giving a child commercial Easter candy full of genetically modified high fructose corn syrup and hydrogenated soybean oil just doesn't work for me. These unhealthy ingredients permeate our daily diets as is.
That's why I am so excited to share some terrific homemade Easter candy recipes this week. They come from our brilliant Candy Expert, Elizabeth LaBau. Try Elizabeth's amazing solid chocolate Easter egg recipe and marshmallow chicks just to name a few of the classic Easter candy recipes in this collection.
Be sure to use gluten-free ingredients, like gluten-free graham crackers in Elizabeth's crunchy peanut butter Easter egg recipe. And if cooking isn't for you, check out our Celiac Disease and Gluten Sensitivity Expert's latest safe candy list.

As I watched my buttery gluten-free cookie dough, flecked with freshly grated lemon zest and minced crystallized ginger spread out on the cookie sheet to thin, very thin enormous circles, I started thinking, disaster! Not unusual in the world of gluten-free bakers, but always disappointing for sure.
This gluten-free recipe story has a happy ending. Even my gluten-eaters raved about these big, bright chewy good gluten-free cookies.
