Gluten-Free Holiday Dessert Round Up

I’m getting ho ho horribly puffy from testing so many dessert recipes, and I am definitely in need of a little seasonal dessert detox.  I love making healthier sweets, but then of course we end up eating them, and even healthy sweets are not designed to be part of the daily diet.  So, I thought I would give myself a little dessert break but still share some sweet holiday cheer with a gluten-free recipe round up.  There are so many great ways to avoid gluten and still eat your cake, and this collection is from both my personal recipes and from some great food blogs.  Everything listed is gluten free, and things that go beyond that are tagged accordingly (grain free is always gluten free, but not vise versa, so I have noted grain free recipes).  If a recipe is tagged as Paleo it means it is grain free and also free of refined sugars.

Triple Almond Scones (Paleo and grain free)

Gingerbread Scones (Paleo and grain free)

    I am Italian and this is probably my favorite meal to prepare all year. Baccala salad, linguine with fresh clams, fried shrimp, stuffed calamari—the list goes on
