Apple Cobbler

A basic recipe for something baked includes a few essentials. I loved learning that I could swap out refined sugar for maple sugar, bad fats for good fats, wheat flour for gluten-free flour and so on. This is my happy attempt at a Gluten-free, dairy-free apple cobbler. If you would like to swap out ingredients, I’d love to hear about it!

Yellow Cake + Life!

It’s been awhile, hasn’t it?? We are on a wild ride at my house for a couple months – my husband just joined me in my work-from-home, nutrition business and I am loving doing this with him!! There has been lots of other stuff too – we were given permission to set up a personal garden at our health food store (so thrilled about that) and there have been a few bumps in the road. The main challenge was the power situation – fortunately, my husband is handy, so he has worked hard on that. We are just about done!

Anywho – I thought I would share with you my daughter’s 5th birthday cake, gluten-free of course! Here you are!
