Fresh Lime Curd
I LOVE this recipe. This was my first time making any sort of curd, and now I wonder why I waited so long! This is simple and delicious. A couple of tips: to help prevent the egg from "scrambling" when added to the hot mixture, place the whole eggs in a mug of warm water at the very beginning of starting this recipe. That way the eggs will blend together much more easily. Whisk constantly while SLOWLY adding the eggs. I used the curd in mini tart shells. I left half plain and half I poured melted chocolate into before adding the curd. Next time I will add a few fresh blueberries!

Gluten-Free Chocolate Cake with Semi-Sweet Chocolate Icing
The only thing I changed (other than adjusting the amount of xanthan gum to tsp from TB) is substituting coconut flour for sorghum, because I ran out. The texture of this cake is fantastic, light, fluffy but moist,however I found it was lacking in flavour. If I am going to eat chocolate cake, I want to eat CHOCOLATE CAKE!! Regardless, this is a recipe I will make again, upping the amount of cocoa (and taking away the same amount in flour to keep the ratios the same), upping the vanilla, and adding some salt. Did not make the icing, so this review is for the cake alone. Always happy to try a real gluten free recipe, meaning one that actually includes the types of flours used!! So thank you, gluten free mommy for sharing!

Maple Salmon
So incredibly good! Added ginger paste, omitted garlic salt for ground garlic. Retained some mixture for drizzling on the finished salmon. Yum yum yum!
