I’ve been wanting to share a lemon cake recipe ever since I had a slice of lemon cake for my birthday many years ago. The pillowy, lemony cake layered with buttery citrus frosting never left my mind. I wanted to create a healthier alternative to enjoy at home.

Fluffy Gluten-Free Naan (Yeast-Free, 20 minutes!)

Fluffy Gluten-Free Naan (Yeast-Free, 20 minutes!)

Since making our vegan take on traditional Indian naan bread a while back, I’ve significantly decreased my consumption of gluten, so naan was off the table for a while. Moment of silence as we grieve. 

The gluten-free alternatives I’d tried up to this point were admittedly lackluster. I missed the pillowy, stretchy naan bread infused with garlic alongside my beloved curries, so I got to work. And the results were incredible. 

Friends, behold, gluten-free vegan naan made in 1 bowl, in 20 minutes, with simple ingredients!

1-Bowl Vegan Gluten-Free Chocolate Cake

When I was in college I worked in a movie theater diner, and my absolute favorite part of my shift was when the restaurant closed. We got to turn up the music (we had a jukebox that had really good songs on it), dance around while cleaning, laugh with coworkers about the ups and downs of our shift, and finally eat some food after all the patrons left. 

My friend Katie was a server, and I managed the dessert counter (are we surprised?).

Grain-Free Cut Out Sugar Cookies (1 Bowl!)

As a child, the anticipation of the holidays meant one thing: My Aunt Patti’s famous sugar cookies. Fluffy, sweet, frosted, perfection.

We would often bake and decorate them together, having plenty of samples along the way. And over the course of the holiday weekend, I would tuck away what felt like dozens of cookies.

I know; not great. But since then, my appetite has matured. I can actually feel a sugar rush coming on and recognize it’s unpleasant, which allows me to enjoy desserts in moderation.
