Dish Examples

Gluten-Free Chocolate Peanut Butter Cookies with Sea Salt

These are perfect for any occasion! The contrast of sweet and salty is my favorite combination! My husband can't have gluten, so these are a huge hit in my household. I can bribe him with cookies, and he never says "No!"

Raspberry and Passion Fruit Shortcake

This one I can't go a summer without making! It's such a crowd-pleaser and really versatile depending on the fruit that is in season. I happen to love the combination of the vibrant fresh raspberries paired with the sweet yet tart passion fruit!
