I Know what Boys Like, I Know what Guys Want

Pseudo Easter was fabulous yesterday. I managed to concoct a glaze for the ham that was Darwin safe, I came up with a new potato casserole (my old one had three ingredients that contained gluten) and I totally made gluten-free baking my bitch.

Oh yeah. You heard me right. My. Bitch.

Ladies and Gentleman, I have now officially mastered a gluten-free carrot cake recipe that rocks. It is totally going into the cookbook.* I just cannot say how amazing it is to have finally made a GF baking recipe that tastes and has the mouth-feel of a "normal" pastry. Now, I just need to come up with a few more.

The boys had a great time with my parents and loved the egg hunt. Enjoy the gratuitous children photos...






... sorry, I forgot to take pictures of the food. Yes, I normally do that. I'm an egomaniac that way.


*What's up with that cookbook, you say? Well, my in-laws gave us enough money to purchase the laptop but my husband hasn't done it yet. Frankly, not having the computer and software so I can start working on the damn thing is starting to drive me crazy (like that's new). Hopefully we'll get something within the next week. Otherwise expect a HUGE post publicly shaming my husband for taking over three months to order a damn laptop for me.

Good job on the cake!

Look at the boys in their nice shorts and stripey shirts. Griffin looks like he's saying "Yes!" in that one.

Now, I must go dig out my old Waitresses CD and listen...

Great pictures! It looks like they had a great time hunting eggs. Now I'm hungry and want some ham and potato casserole. Thanks!

Yay! You! Sounds like quite an accomplishment and I'm so glad you had a nice late Easter! We will all help shame your husband if need be. ;-)

Hey, no need to apologize. I cook nice things so rarely I should photograph them too. And gluten free nice things must be a real challenge.

I don't know what your other allergy issues are -- but here is a link to a Whole Foods recipe for a Gluten free chocolate cake that I've made that is INCREDIBLE. They usually have quite a few gluten free recipes...

I don't think that worked the first time.

I don't think it worked again. I'll have to email you. Sorry.
