Balinese Coconut Black Rice Pudding With Banana

Bali has a special place in my heart, as it was the first place in Southeast Asia that I traveled to, which lead me to fall head over heels in love with that part of the world, and propelled me to want to work in global health nutrition.

Cranberry Breakfast Streusel Cake (Gluten Free)

I honestly love getting to prove over and over again that health conscious and gluten free baking can in fact taste absolutely delicious. It's almost become a game of mine to bring items I've been testing to family parties or group functions and watch as non-gluten free eaters devour my items, always to be shocked when they find out that "yes it really is gluten-free" and "no there really isn't any refined sugar in there".

Gluten Free Sugar Cookies

Growing up as a kid I have so many wonderful memories of the holiday season, most of which center around my family, and baking.
