My Favorite Balsamic Glazed Salmon

Once upon a time, I found an amazing, naturally gluten-free balsamic glazed salmon recipe on Pinterest. It immediately got onto a weekly rotation for an easy and healthy after work dinner. I’d whip it out when guests came over to impress them. It is my favorite recipe to date.
Then one day, I went back to look at the recipe and it was gone. GONE. Gone forever!

Goodbye, wonderful pin 😦

I was sad not to have the original, but luckily I’ve made it so many times that I remember roughly how to make it.
From the best I can remember, here is my favorite, delicious Baked Balsamic Salmon.
salmon filets
4 tbsp Extra Virgin Olive Oil
4 tbsp Balsamic Vinegar
2 cloves of garlic
2 tbsp honey
salt, to taste
pepper, to taste
dried herbs, to taste (Italian seasoning, dried basil or dried oregano work best!)
In a saucepan, saute the garlic in the olive oil over medium heat. Once it begins to brown, carefully add the balsamic vinegar and honey, whisking the mixture together. It will start to bubble, continue whisking for a minute then immediately remove from heat to avoid burning.
Marinate the salmon in the balsamic sauce for at least 20 minutes. Pre-heat oven to 400F/200C. Put salmon in a baking dish and pour over the sauce. Salt and pepper the filets and sprinkle a bit of dried herbs on top. Bake salmon for 20 minutes. Enjoy!

Gluten-Free​ Baking Fail – Pumpkin Whoopie Pies

Well, my attempt to share the joy of Thanksgiving with my coworkers devolved into a crumbly mess, ha!
I tried to gather the necessary ingredients for my mom’s delicious gluten-free pumpkin whoopie pies, but I missed the rice flour line! Ended up subbing a general flour blend. Since ovens in the UK are fan ovens, things tend to bake faster here, so I took them out at 10 minutes.
I’ll be making more today and I’ll be leaving them in for 12 minutes and using rice flour! Gluten-free baking can be hit or miss, but even though the presentation of these guys wasn’t the best, my coworkers ate them all!

Marks & Spencer Made Without Party Cake

My parents came over from Boston to visit in London the weekend before my birthday, and lucky for me, they threw me a little celebration! We picked up a cake from Marks & Spencer’s Made Without Range. I have tried a few of these cakes, but never had a reason to try the party cake so this was it!
The gluten-free party cake was basically a Victoria sandwich covered in fondant. I had the Victoria Sandwich before and loved it, but I did not love the icing covering. It sure is cute, but mine stayed on the plate and I ate the cake out from it, ha!
It was super convenient to be able to pick up a ready-made gluten-free birthday cake at M&S!
My mom LOVED M&S and picked up a couple treats to try. She particularly loved the Made Without Millionaires bites!

Crumbs and Doilies Soho Gluten-Free Cupcakes

My sweet coworkers got me cupcakes for my birthday from Crumbs & Doilies on Kingly Street in Soho, London and they were amazing. truly the best gluten-free cupcakes I have ever had!
I got to try Crumbs & Doilies’ Neapolitan and Raspberry cheesecake cupcakes made gluten-free. Not only were these beautiful, but when you bit inside, they both had filling! The flavours were delicious and much more complex than your average gluten-free cupcake.
Crumbs & Doilies can make many of their cupcakes gluten-free to order! They have 40 different flavours and they all look awesome!
If you are looking for delicious gluten-free cupcakes in London, look no further than this cupcake shop in Soho. So impressed!
You can visit Crumbs & Doilies at:
