Gluten-Free, Dairy-Free Slow-Cooker Chicken Divan with Mustard Crumb Crunch

I’m a little bit behind the slow cooker revolution, but one try and I knew I was in love: While the cooking may be slow, the kitchen prep time is fast. I also didn’t want all of the dishes I made to be stew-like. I conquered that fear with my take on this classic chicken dish.

Gluten-Free, Dairy-Free 7-Layer Rainbow Cookies

It’s fitting that I’m sharing this recipe with you on a Sunday. In Italy, that’s when sweets are celebrated. Growing up, when I lived in Rome, every Sunday was a ritual of going to the local pasticceria with my Neapolitan grandfather, or Nonno as I called him, to pick out a sweet selection of pastries to bring over to my aunt Laura and uncle Fabrizio’s house for lunch.

Gluten-Free, Dairy-Free Bananas Foster Loaf Cake

People tell me all the time that they cook, but they don’t really bake. And, that baking actually scares them—gluten-free or not. As the rush of December sets into our daily lives, the only thing I consciously want to do is bake so I can feel that warmth that only baking (and cuddling with my kids) gives me. Before I develop new cookies for the holiday season, I just had to bake this banana cake. It’s my comfort food. I hope you’ll take refuge in it, too.
