Gluten-Free Pumpkin Pie Bread

A Tea Bread Slice That Tastes Like Pie? Yes please.

I am forever looking for ways to bake with pumpkin (aren't you, Babycakes?). So I absolutely had to share our latest recipe, baked fresh and warm and tender and spicy, just this morning, filling our chilly apartment with the aroma of pumpkin pie.

It was simply too darn tasty to keep to ourselves.

We are, after all, entering the season of harvest, gratitude, and giving.

And the best part is- for many of us- this gluten-free recipe has nary a single gum.

No xanthan gum. No guar gum. No locust bean gum.

No weirdo ingredients.

Just a whole lotta YUM.

Best Gluten-Free Pumpkin Bars Recipe

Frosted gluten-free pumpkin bars with a secret ingredient.

Tuning in to the particular (and fleeting) pleasures of each changing season as we ride the wheel of the year may be my favorite spiritual practice. A practice that requires one simple thing. Attention. Which turns out to be not so simple, inevitably. Because life is anything but simple, with its whitewater rush of mind numbing distractions that demand less and less of our soul and more and more of our mental focus on exterior minutia. Micro decisions. Cleaning out our email in-box. Catching up with Facebook feeds and Twitter streams and Google+. Texting about grocery lists. Scanning streaming video options- thousands of choices may glitter and ooze their high definition glow but I find I am not feeling the abundance.

I am less and less enamored with more.

I know. It's showing. My age. My childhood brain was wired for mud and bird calls, blackberry thickets and butterscotch pine. Hours spent reading in a grove of birch tr…

Gluten-Free Pumpkin Streusel Muffins

Did someone say streusel? This isn't a Halloween post. Or a pre-Thanksgiving post. Technically. Though Hallow's Eve is just a stone's throw away- if you somehow conjure a metaphorical stone to metaphorically hurl into the time-space continuum, piercing the veil of a mere FOUR weeks that blows by in a singular exhale, surely faster than light. And this exhale, it was only following a previous breath- a breath I took yesterday- which turns out to be one year ago. 

A year since that Pumpkin Praline Pie I baked. 

I have a hard time wrapping my brain around this.

Some days I feel as if I am slave to the calendar, an unwitting cog in the wheel of the year with Sundays and holidays appointed by proxy, designated by some superior force that rules my random wandering nature with an unforgiving fist, demanding obedience. Charting the course of my life.

Then I remember the truth.


Time is an invention born of the Big Bang. Debris hurtling through space- at increasing velocity. And here we…

Gluten-Free Pumpkin Donuts!

Pumpkin Crazy. I am. Because, donuts! You might think I'm on a pumpkin bender, glancing through recipes here on Gluten-Free Goddess®. And you'd be right. I do this. Every October. I go on one long, crazy, pumpkin love affair. I am head-over-heels nuts about it. Because pumpkin is magic. In fact, if pumpkin was in a fairy tale, it would be the Fairy Godmother- not the humble buggy. It makes gluten-free baking transform, you see, as if touched by a star-tipped sparkling wand.

That's why I knew I had to tackle pumpkin donuts. Because donuts can be tough to replicate gluten-free. But I knew pumpkin would bring me luck, and sprinkle good fortune on my baking endeavors today. So, yes. I am pumpkin crazy. Crazy in love.

And you know what?

If pumpkin be the food of love, play on.
