Ligonier, Pennyslvania for a Laborless Labor Day

When a very sunny and hot Labor Day rolled around, I found myself itching to socialize and soak up the sun. I hadn't been sure what my schedule would be, so I had failed to plan anything, and by that point, it felt too late. I was alone, and don't tell my mom, but I dare say I was bored. Luckily, a friend came to my rescue, and a last minute getaway ensued.

Whole Grain Teff Blondies (Gluten-Free)

These days, I tend to err on the side of gluten-free baking when it comes to baking for larger gatherings. The chances that someone has a gluten allergy or sensitivity seem to be high these days. Plus, as a grain nerd, these recipes are a chance to explore a wider variety of flavors, textures and health benefits, so let me introduce you to Teff via chocolate and pecan blondies.

Gluten Free Rhubarb Cake for the Rustbelt Farmer’s Birthday

For the past six months or so, I've been working on something big, something scary, something that has broken me, built me and flipped me every which way. I've missed summertime traditions, family gatherings, and missed seeing lots of my friends, but there was one day I couldn't miss: my Rustbelt Farmer's birthday! That's a day that called for cake, specifically a Gluten Free Rhubarb Cake with Whiskey Whipped Cream and farm-fresh strawberries and mint.

Blackberry Jalapeño Margaritas and Cakes

I'm 34 now. Why would I leave my dog, go out, and pay for margaritas, when I could sip from home and watch true crime shows?!? Allow me to introduce you to these Blackberry Jalapeño Margaritas. They're worth staying home for. (The 30's bring so much wisdom, friends. If you're in your 20s, just know it gets so much better, or at least, way more comfortable.) Cheers!
