Not Deprived

O.K, I don't eat wheat. And, I don't eat dairy - not even an eensy-weensy little bit. I mean, I'm not even tempted, the consequences are that bad.

But NO, I am NOT DEPRIVED! Not as long as good people like Annalise Roberts write gluten-free cookbooks as good as this one! This coconut cake was so good and so rich, I could barely finish a one-inch slice. Barely.

Our lovely library system keeps a steady influx of new cookbooks and this one was so good, I had to buy it.

But I only make desserts on Sundays, when we have family over for dinner and the dessert gets polished off that day (To my 5 year old nephew I'm known as "Auntie Cake"). Otherwise I'd never have lost the fifteen pounds since Christmas.
