Cake Mix Dr bakes gf

Last night was gf girls night out, a first! The oldest and youngest daughters went with me to my first ever book signing, Cake Mix Dr. Bakes Gluten Free.
First and for most author, Anne Byrn is a wonderful example of a Southern woman! She loves to cook and has been writing about Elvis and food for more than 30 years. She has authored 7 books, with her newest book her first on GF. Her recipes are not casein free. Most can easily be adapted. She does make references in her book of alternative milk substitutes. 

     "Now comes sweet news for people on gluten-free diets. They can bake their cake and eat          it, too. Anne Byrn shows how to transform gluten-free cake mixes into rich, decadent, easy-to-make, impossible-to-resist desserts. Performing the magic that’s made her a best-selling baking author with more than 3.3 million copies of her books in print, she doctors mixes with additions like almond extract, fresh berries, cocoa powder, grated coconut, cinnamon, lime zest, and more – naturally, all gluten-free ingredients. Dessert is back on the menu." Quoted from her website.

peanut butter cookies
At Anne's booking signing, I had the opportunity to sample her peanut butter cookies and lemon bars. The lemon bars were moist, awesome lemon flavor and great texture. The peanut butter cookies were good. I think making them with crunchy peanut butter would knock them out of the park. In general I do not like crunchy peanut butter but occasionally in cookies.
Lemon Squares
I am looking forward to creating some wonderful yummy goodness for my family. Will let you know in a future post some of my favorites.
May you table be bountiful~ blair
