Sally's Best Brownies - The world's best brownies, enjoyed by four generations and counting! :)
Apple Coffee Cake (off site) - Posted on TasteBook. Apples and raisins replace some of the fat in this recipe.
Carrot Pineapple Bundt Cake - A recipe from Kitchen Bouquets, by Bert Greene, this cake celebrates the scent and taste of cinnamon - Mr. Greene states "...an irresistable dessert, this cake also keeps remarkably well - if you can keep your loved ones from demolishing it at the first sitting. I can't!" This cake met with similar approval from my own family, and continues to be a favorite, despite the fact that it uses oil instead of butter!
Coconut-Almond Torte with Sabre Liqueur (off site) - This is an excellent recipe! By necessity, I've been hunting for gluen-free recipes - this is the first dessert I've found that is tasty enough to share with gluten-eating folks. :) I made this as one of my contributions to Christmas dinner; everyone, gluten-free or not, loved it! The whipped cream and chocolate shaving garnishes are optional - powdered sugar works well as an alternative garnish. The Sabre liqueur is impossible to find in rural New Hampshire, but Grand Marnier works as a substitute - or you can skip the alcohol and just replace it with more OJ. - Posted on the New York Times web site. - Link posted January 2, 2017.
Flourless Lemon Almond Cake (off site) - An excellent FODMAP-safe cake recipe, that is tasty enough to serve to company. I found the batter to be very stiff and difficult to mix, but I added an extra egg and it was a lot easier. I added poppy seeds to mine, and they were good!. - Posted on Simply Recipes - Link posted January 21, 2017.
Sally's Carrot Cake - Peter's favorite! He asks for this for his birthday every year! :)
Beach Sand Ice Cream Topping (off site) - Super easy, and it really looks like sand! Mom and I used it to decorate the summer-theme birthday cake we brought to the 2016 family reunion...- Posted on The Hippo magazine's web site. - Link posted January 2, 2017.

Coconut Lover's Oatmeal Cookies (off site) - Totally awesome and easy to make cookies - no wheat and no weird ingredients! The yummiest thing I've eaten in a long time. :) The batter is a mite dry and difficult to work with, so I added an extra egg and that made it much better. This also works well as a bar cookie: Just line a brownie pan with parchment paper and spread the mixture over it - just as tasty and a lot less fuss! :) Full recipe posted on "Barefeet in the Kitchen."

Coconut Macaroon Cookies (off site) - This recipe is on the Eagle Brand Milk web site. I've made these cookies as Christmas presents for years, and they are always appreciated! I use low-fat sweetened condensed milk, and sometimes I leave out the almond extract. The old recipe instructs the cook to line baking sheets with parchment paper and coat the paper with butter and shifted flour - I've always made my cookies this way. The modern version uses cooking spray on aluminum foil... this may work just fine, but I've never tried it this way. Link posted January 1, 2016.

Great-Great Aunt Catherine's Pecan Balls - A very special Christmas cookie - very rich and tasty. We only make them once a year!
Healthy Avocado Chocolate Cookies (off site) - A gem of a recipe from a gem of a site, Sprouted Fig. A nice dark chocolaty taste - I would have never guessed that there was avocado in the cookies if I hadn't baked them myself! :) The recipe suggests using a banana if you want to skip added sugar, and this works out quite nicely; I added a few drops of stevia to up the sweetness just a mite. Also, if you opt to weigh out the ingredients, don't make the mistake of using 120 g of cocoa, like I did - I learned the hard way that 120 mL of cocoa actually weighs only 40 g... An awesome recipe that I plan to repeat often! - Link posted March 7, 2018.

Baklava Bites (off site) - A traditional taste with a nontraditional look! They will look like they won't work when you pour the syrup on, but persevere - once they cool, they will be fine. Posted on the Athens Foods site. - Link posted January 21, 2017.
Chocolate Peanut Butter "Ice Cream" (Dairy Free, No Sugar Added) (off site) - Another excellent "ice cream" recipe - this one from Sugar-Free Mom has no saturated fat or added sugar, which makes it even more awesome! I used almond butter instead of peanut butter and it was super good. - Link posted March 7, 2018.
Coconut Ice "Cream" - This recipe is a simplified version of the one found on "The Kitchn" web site - the original adds corn starch and cooks the base into a sort of pudding. I accidently discovered that it comes out just fine without the corn starch or cooking, as long as everything is super cold when you start out. The base needs to be added after the machine is fully assembled and while it is running; I once tried to add the ingredients to the bowl before inserting the mixing arm and discovered that hard lumps had (VERY quickly) frozen on to the sides of the freezer bowl, making it impossible to insert the mixing arm. I have a Cuisinart 2-quart ice cream maker (Thank you, Sally!), so I know this recipe works well in that sort of machine - if you have a different kind of machine, you may need to modify things a bit to suit it... - Posted June 11, 2017.

Easy Gluten-Free Pie Crust (off site) - The best gluten-free pie crust I've found so far! I used it to make Tofu Tourtière (recipe to be posted soon!). This is a sweet pie crust - to turn it into a savory crust, I cut the sugar to 1 teaspoon and omitted the vanilla. - Posted on the Whole Foods Explorer web site. - Link posted January 2, 2017.
