Gluten Free Irish Carob Cupcakes

Sometimes this whole blogging thing trips me out.

I remember where I was when these were made and photographed last year.  Who I was with, what we were all doing, and the St. Pat’s party I was preparing for. 

Much has changed this year – not in a bad way.  But changed.

Today I’m leaving on a jet plane.  Don’t know if I’ll be back…

…Okay, I’ll be back next Tuesday.

My St. Patrick’s Day will be spent on a small island in the middle of the Azorean Atlantic.  In the morning – while you’re still sleeping here, my lovely New York City – I’ll be touring a vineyard, interviewing the proprietor on his ancient machines while my photographer clicks away.

Later we’ll meet up with some family at a park by a lake, where we’ll cook food in the ground, still hot from the volcano simmering quietly underneath.

There will be no green hats, or Guinness bombs, or my brother vomiting in my hallway and then denying it to everyone’s faces (in fairness he simply didn’t remember vomiting in my hallway, so he wasn’t lying…).

So in my absence I invite you to check out this Gluten Free Irish Carob Cupcake recipe.  And take a tiny walk down one gal’s lane o memories.

St. Patrick’s Day Recipes

Hello dusty food friends!

I am just jumping in a jig for the end of the countdown to my favorite holiday.  For some dear friends I’ll be making corned beef and cabbage, roasted potatoes, braised carrots, Irish Cream Cupcakes, Irish Tea Macarons and both gluten-free and traditional soda bread.  Along with some sipping whiskey and pub-esque trivia, I am VERY excited for Thursday evening.

So here’s a little list of the festive recipes I’ve been playing with.

Happy St. Patrick’s Day!

Happy 2-Days to St. Patrick’s Day!

A few weeks ago I entered an Irish St. Patrick’s Day Recipe contest on FoodFrenzy.  THANK YOU to all who voted.  My Irish Cream Filled Carob Cupcake recipe came in second, and this beautiful recipe for Almond & Pandan Sapin-Sapin from Pinay in Texas Cooking Corner came in first.

It’s a gorgeous recipe, one that I can’t personally make for myself because of the necessary condensed milk, but one that I’d gladly make for those without dairy allergies.  And it contains glutinous rice, which I’ve been itching to try.

Please check out her recipe for a lovely story and pictures of her green-tinted, shamrock-delight!
