More Recipes—A Baker’s Dozen—from This Past Year That Deserve Your Attention

Yesterday I shared my Top 10 Recipe Posts and Discussion Posts for 2013 and All Time. Today I’m sharing a few more posts from 2013 that deserve your attention. I’m still leaving some great recipes out so I hope you’ll check out my Recipe Index or search whenever you’re looking for a particular gluten-free recipe. If you don’t find what you are looking for and it’s in the dessert category, please be sure to head over to my other site, All Gluten-Free Desserts … All The Time.

Now for that Baker’s Dozen …

Almost Instant “Cheater” Tomato Soup ~ Only two ingredients and you can enjoy delicious tomato soup again.

Brown Sugar Chocolate Chip Cookies (Gluten Free, Dairy Free) ~ I was so happy to create this dairy-free version of these beloved cookies. I’ve made them several times since and everyone loves them!

Cheeseburger Birthday Cake ~ This adorable cake recipe—more of a method really—comes from Cherie Cormier of Our Gluten-Free Life. It would be great to make for a birthday party or many other celebrations, like the upcoming Super Bowl for instance.

Chocolate Milkshake ~ If you’re dairy free, you should especially give this recipe a try. Johnna said, “I made this just as soon as I saw the post. It’s delicious! It reminds me of Wendy’s Frosty, only with ingredients I feel good about eating.” If this shake sounds good, you’ll also want to consider this variation, Chocolate Cherry Milkshake.

Easy Crustless Peach Pie ~ This recipe was a blogger friend/reader-inspired peach variation of the Crustless Apple Pie. The positive feedback came quickly on this recipe. In fact, one reader recently confessed that by not serving this pie on Thanksgiving (due to the unavailability of fresh peaches), she almost caused some serious family issues. Folks often demand their favorites for the holidays!

Flourless Chocolate (Cocoa) Cookies ~ These cookies are all about getting one’s chocolate fix without having to have chocolate chips on hand because we all know those have a high evaporation rate, right? However, cocoa is usually there waiting in the pantry to add less costly, rich chocolate flavor.

Flourless Chocolate Quinoa Cake ~ Flourless recipes have always been my very favorites and this one was no different. Rich and decadent, yet healthier than most cakes that fit that description. The recipe was given to be my friend Katie (and it had been given to her by another friend) and I made a number of changes to it for my liking. I also turned it into a “Freedom Cake” (with a  double meaning) as you can see. I discovered later that the original recipe came from the cookbook, Quinoa 365:  The Everyday Superfood.

Flourless Triple Nut (or Seed) Brownies ~ It’s hard to believe that four basic ingredients can create these lovely flourless brownies, which are paleo and vegan. Add a drizzle of maple syrup or honey, if you like.

Gluten-Free Mug Pancake ~ This mug pancake tastes every bit as good as it looks. Now you can have a self-contained scrumptious pancake for one (or maybe two) in just a few minutes.

Paleo-Friendly Chocolate Chip Coconut Cookies ~ As I asked then, can there be too many chocolate chip cookie recipes? The answer is a resounding “No!” Splendid Medjool dates and some chocolate chips provide all the needed sweetness in this grain-free cookie, which is also made of almond flour, coconut flour, and coconut flakes.

Pizza Bombs ~ I have gotten more raves on this recipe from individuals on Facebook than most other recipes. Just today, gfe reader Carol said, “I bring your Pizza bombs to many a pizza party and they go fast. Even people that are not needing to maintain a GF Diet they love them.” Later, she added, “I had a call the other day from a Mother of a newly diagnosed celiac asking for my recipe, her daughter had tried them at an event that I had brought them to and had raved how good they were. She then made them for the whole family and they loved them.” That is the kind of feedback that fuels gfe!

Power Balls ~ There’s built-in portion control with these rich little goodies, made with only four ingredients.

Pumpkin Spice Bundt Cake ~ When you add spiced pumpkin butter to a spice Bundt cake, you end up with this very delicious cake. It’s one for the pumpkin lovers for sure, but the flavor is mild enough that even the non-pumpkin fans might go for it.

    This isn’t fair, you’re making me hungry! Off to the kitchen I go :) That chocolate shake looks about right! xo

    • Shirley on January 16th, 2014 9:12 pm

      Well, that chocolate shake has similarities to your Almond Dream Shake, Maggie! ;-) Happy Thursday, dear!


  2. Vicky on January 14th, 2014 3:15 pm

    A lovely selection Shirley, I’ve still got my eye on the peach pie, I must try making it in the Summer!

    Happy New Year may it bring everything you could possibly wish for xoxo

    • Shirley on January 16th, 2014 9:14 pm

      Thanks on all, Vicky! I do think you’d enjoy the grain-free, refined sugar-free version of peach pie. :-)

      Happiest of New Years to you, too, dear! I think it’s going to be a really great one! ;-) xoxo,

    With a round up like this, I’m beginning to wonder which blog is sweeter, GF desserts or this one!

    • Shirley on January 16th, 2014 9:40 pm

      Ha! Yes, I know, Alisa. I was a bit disappointed when I saw that most of my recipes from last year were sweet ones. Imagine how many I would have had to make had I NOT gotten most of my sweet fix vicariously through all my AGFD posts! ;-)


  4. Sarah || Celiac in the City on January 18th, 2014 11:28 am THANK YOU for recapping the year — I had forgotten about some of these that I really wanted to make. (pizza bombs, pancake in a mug, and COOKIES!)

    Yum, yum, and yum!

    • Shirley on January 18th, 2014 9:39 pm

      You are so kind, Sarah! :-) I can’t wait to hear what you think of the pizza bombs, pancake in a mug and, well, everything if/when you make them. I think you will just love the pizza bombs for sure. ;-)


  5. Heather @Gluten-Free Cat on January 20th, 2014 10:38 am

    Not a good post to read on my juice cleanse. :) That cheeseburger cake is hilarious!

    • Shirley on January 22nd, 2014 12:33 am

      Heather– ;-) Yes, the Cheeseburger Cake is a hoot! I bet my family would love it if I made it for Super Bowl, but it’s unlikely to happen. ;-)
