Memorial Day Desserts!

It is Memorial Day holiday! So we need a cake! This is a very delicious moisture gluten free cake. It is yellow cake based with French vanilla pudding mix added to the cake batter. Then, lots of thin cut Fuji apple pieces were added. Once the cake was done and cooled, a caramel glaze was drizzled on the top of the cake. Can you say yummy caramel apple? :)

Of course, with the weather gets so hot, who would not want some homemade smooth sorbet? So I used up the fresh strawberry and mango in the refrigerator to make these nice sorbets! Cold, smooth, and full of fresh fruits taste. Once you have the homemade sorbets, you will never want to buy it from the stores! Hope that everybody has a nice weekend!

Happy Mother's Day!

Hope that all the moms have a happy mother's day today! My mom lives far away on the other side of the earth so I cannot spend the day on celebrating this holiday with her. But I did try to send Mother's day cards and call her in advance to let her know that she's always on my mind.

Since I just came back from a work trip from Florida, I did not have time to make a cake for my best friend's mom and sister in the Mother's day. I decide to make this gluten free lemon bar adapted from Ina Garten's recipe for them instead. It has the zing of lemon but neither too sweet nor too sour. And it has wonderful nice crust made of butter, sugar and gluten free flour. I am happy to see that both ladies love the bars very much! Hope that you have a great Mother's day as well!
