Fall is my favorite time of year to bake, and I've been working on some new gluten-free recipes that feature the season's best foods. When it comes to dessert, I like to challenge myself to make things that 1) taste amazing, 2) bring out the natural flavors in food, 3) are low on the glycemic index and 4) use the most natural ingredients I can find.
 
I look forward to seeing you in class, and as always feel free to browse through my website for more allergy-friendly and healthy recipes, workouts, fitness tips and inspiration at http://thebettyrocker.com
