It was a simple meal; chicken cooked ont he grill, fried potatoes and onions, a few chips and some fresh guacamole, topped off with a roasted chile pepper. Oh, yum!

Gluten Free Carrot Cake

This is one of the best! Everyone eats it and everyone loves it.

Carrot Cake

4 Eggs
2 C Sugar
1 1/4 C Oil
1 1/4 C Rice Flour
1/4 C Potato Flour
1/2 tsp Xanthan Gum
2 tsp Cinnamon
2 tsp Baking Powder
1 tsp Salt
3 C Grated Carrots
1/2 C Chopped Pecans or Walnuts
2 C Chopped Apples

Heat oven to 350F. Beat eggs well, gradually adding sugar until the mixture is light and fluffy. Beat in oil. Sift in the dry ingredients. Then add the nuts to coat them. Fold in all the dry ingredients. Use a greased 9x13 pan or 2 round layer pans. The 9x13 pan will take about 45-50min to cook. Test with toothpick. Cool in pan for 10 minutes before turning out.

Frost w/ cream cheese frosting.

Blumbly Bakery

I stopped at the Webster Farmer's Market on my way to Mom's house yesterday and stumbled upon a couple selling gluten-free baked goods. I sampled a Vanilla Almond Muffin and bought a little package of Double Almond Crunchies. They were really yummy. I may have to return next Saturday and show my encouragement again.
