It is wonderful to see so many new gluten-free products in the grocery store! Especially when they get cheaper! My wal-mart's gluten-free section has been ever growing, and now great value has their own line of gluten-free products. Like gluten-free "Oreo" cookies that cost the same as regular Oreo cookies. And mac 'n' cheese that is only $1.28 a box.
I am not going to tell you how many boxes I've made. It is embarrassing. I think it is sufficient to say that we no longer have tortilla sandwiches or leftovers for lunch.

My hubby LOVES cheese crackers. Specifically Cheez-its and Goldfish. He declared that these were the best crackers that I have made, and were pretty darn close to the real deal.

Pancakes have always been a sort of family tradition for me. Growing up every Saturday morning we made pancakes. Every Saturday. We made pancakes because that was what my grandma was doing, even though she lived across the country. So every Saturday was pancake day, at my grandma's house and at home with my parents. Without fail!

I love peanut butter, as I know many of you do.
My favorite candy bar: Reese's.
My favorite ice cream topping: peanut butter
If you haven't ever had peanut butter on ice cream you are missing out. My favorite way to cool down is with a bowl of vanilla bean ice cream, all-natural peanut butter, and hot fudge (or just straight up chocolate chips if I'm being lazy.)
2 of my favorite childhood treats also involve peanut butter. Peanut butter balls, and these no-bake peanut butter cookies.

Everyone needs to have a good chocolate cake recipe in their repertoire. I already had one. It is amazing, but the technique can be a little tricky. You have to mix boiling water with cocoa into a paste, and make a normal batter, and then somehow mix the 2 together? Ain't nobody got time for that! (That process enhances the chocolateyness of the cake because the boiling water "activates" the chocolate.)
I revised the technique for my well loved chocolate cupcakes so that it is easier and quicker to mix together, and you still get that moist chocolate cake. The differences in the cake are so slight that I only think you'd be able to distinguish between them in a side by side comparison. So unless you want to make 2 different batches of cupcakes and taste them both, just make this one. It is quicker to mix up, and you only have to clean a fraction of the dishes.
