This Week's Cravings: Special Diets

{sorry this is a day late. I didn't set my publish day/time correctly!}

Our theme this week is Special Diets. Do you - or someone you love - follow a restricted diet such as gluten-free, dairy free, diabetic, etc? Then please share those recipes!

I have a loved one with celiac disease, so I make sure to tag any of my recipes that are gluten free - see them all HERE. Today I'm highlighting two previous gluten free recipes:

Gluten Free Cheesecake Bars

This recipe using a box of gluten free cake mix. Betty Crocker offers this product at a reasonable price.

Chocolate Raspberry Flourless Cupcakes with Fresh Whipped Cream and Lemon Spun Sugar

Whew! Long title! But worth it - I put together this dessert for a cupcake contest, but it can easily be adjusted. Don't add the raspberries to the cupcakes for a dense and decadent chocolate dessert. The spun sugar is a wonderful technique for adding special touches to other dishes. Remember, glute-free doesn't have to be boring!


Here's a run down of our little shindig and the rules:

This is your chance to share your favorite recipe each week based on our themes. Post that favorite breakfast from last week, or post your favorite cheesecake you made last month, just please stick to the theme. We want to read and discover your favorite recipe post, or if you don't have a recipe that matches this week's theme, then our hope is we inspire you to make something and link-up in the future. Please link directly to your post, NOT to your home page. And pretty pretty please link back to one of our hosts using the button or a direct link. It's fun to visit too!
