Time for a confession: I’ve never gone out of my way to make a gluten-free dessert before. I mean, I’ve made them, but it’s always been purely coincidental.

Right up until this past July, that is. For Gerda’s bridal shower last month, I volunteered to make half of the cupcakes. Someone else was working on the vanilla ones for the dress-shaped cake, so I figured I’d make chocolate. I was a little more hesitant when they asked I make them gluten-free, but I decided to give it a shot. I could make a test batch ahead of time and, if they didn’t work out, I’d switch to a boxed kind–one that was less likely to go wrong.

I’m happy to say that my attempt to make home-made gluten-free cupcakes went quite well, all thanks to Flippin’ Delicious’s Best Gluten Free Chocolate Cake.

I’ll admit it: I’m not always a big romance reader. But sometimes, I come across one that sounds so good that I just have to add it to my to-be-read list.

One Summer with Autumn, by Julie Reece, is one such book. It sounds like a great read–one that would be perfect for some time spent curled up on the couch with a blanket on a cool day. I can’t wait until I get the chance to read it.

In the meantime, I’ll make due with helping to reveal the book’s cover. If you’re ready to check it out, click on through to the rest of the post.
