It’s my favorite time of the year: Gluten Free Cookie Swap time! I can’t believe it’s the seventh year we’ve hosted this community event, and now, hundreds of gluten free cookie recipes and thousands of dollars of prizes later, it’s now the 7th Annual Gluten Free Cookie Swap!

If you’ve followed me for awhile, you know I love to bake. I’m actually considered an expert at gluten free baking (it took me long enough, experimenting for years to get it right!) BUT … I do NOT consider myself to be an expert cook. Breads and the sweet stuff just come naturally to me.
