    Dumplings with my family
    A recent graduate of The Culinary Institute of America, I found myself with no money, no kitchen equipment, and an exceptionally huge appetite. Ideas, improvisations, and yummy meal solutions were discovered in the kitchen of my very first apartment.

Triple Chocolate Cookies (Gluten Free)

My little cousin recently turned 15. I wanted to make her a birthday treat, but she has an allergy to wheat. So I turned to the best book I know on the subject (by the best expert I know): Gluten Free Baking by Chef Coppedge (one of my former teachers at the CIA). His book is amazing, namely due to his four special alternative flour blends that perfectly replicate all types of flours that are normally made with wheat. This recipe uses rice and almond flours, as well as three kinds of chocolate that will keep all chocolate lovers from noticing that it’s made with anything other than plain jane ingredients. And it makes an awesome gift for any chocolate lover – gluten free or not!
