Bagels are BACK! Delicious and Doable Gluten-Free Bagels

I’m a normal person. Normal is a relative term when I use it — FYI. But really, I don’t believe in anything in the kitchen being too fussy or time consuming to make. Lacking in patience and general panache, I believe wholeheartedly in recipes that WORK and are doable to normal humans who have very busy lives and little time.

Chewy, tasty, shiny and a crisp outer edge. Just simply perfect.

Kitchen Sink Crepes (A.K.A. Balsamic Fig & Chicken Stuffed Crepes)

Please don’t roll your eyes. I know most of us don’t think of fancy schmancy crepes as a kitchen sink anything. But that’s where you’re wrong my friends. Crepes are actually easy peasy. If you can make pancakes, then you can make crepes, and they actually require MUCH fewer ingredients. And bonus points–crepes are the perfect vehicle for whatever’s in your fridge at the moment!

A Parade of Easter Sweets

Whether you have big plans, little plans or no plans, you can whip up one of these spring-y sweets to help celebrate the day. I have rated these recipes based on difficulty and time needed so you can choose the one that fits into your life.

Braided Bread Stuffed with Lemon Curd. This soft, delicate, flaky filled bread is so tangy and sweet. It is really a perfectly beautiful bread to BRING to a brunch, one that you are not hosting and you are only responsible for ONE THING. Because this one is a solid 9/10  in difficulty level (maybe a 10…let’s not mince words) and is totally worth it if you have the time and energy.

Bait and Switch Delectable Gluten Free Pumpkin Pancakes

I am honest to a fault. Seriously to a fault. I always bring baked goods and then instantly blurt out ANYTHING minuscule that went awry, as if someone slipped truth serum into my coffee. My most recent admission was,..”I got wrapped up in watching re-runs of Chuck and may have left these muffins in a stitch too long.”

The pictures you see here, unfortunately, are from my last year’s post of my AP Flour pumpkin pancakes. My problem was that I kept making my delicious, fabulously soft, not gritty and very fluffy GF pumpkin pancakes and running out of time to take pictures. Life’s a bit of a bumpy ride for the moment at best (more like an unpaved road in a construction zone. See? Honest to a fault).
