I am so excited that it is DAY 1 of the 42 DAYS OF GIVEAWAYS to celebrate the April 8th release of The Blender Girl cookbook. I am giving so many amazing products and I can't wait to announce all of the winners.
We start with 7 Eco Jarz Reusable Drinking Packs. I LOVE the Eco Jarz products and use them every day to transport and drink my juices and smoothies.
To celebrate all of this I am eating cake! Lots of cake. To be specific, these scrumptious allergy free vivid vanilla cupcakes from Debbie Adler's amazing new book, Sweet Debbie's Organic Treats Allergy-Free & Vegan Recipes from the famous Los Angeles bakery. As Debbie says on the cover of her book, "No Gluten, Eggs, Dairy, Soy, Sugar, or Nuts - No Problem!" I am so in love with these cupcakes, and making them was a bit of a learning curve, as I had never used powdered erythritol. I love learning new tricks!
And Debbie's book is full of them. Having a son with multiple food allergies has made Debbie an expert in developing fool-proof allergy-free baked treats that more than hold their own against their conventional sugar-laden counterparts, and she shares her top tips for allergy-free staples; frosting, mixing, wrapping, and sweetening techniques; allergy-free must-have kitchen tools; homemade seed butters; and her famous gluten free flour mix that is used in the recipes.
Then there's the incredible recipes: salted caramel apple muffins, cosmic chocolate chip cookies, blueberry streusel donut holes, lemon parsnipannies, blondies with roots, antioxidant blast bars, fudgy fig-a-mama-jig bars, acai berry truffles, mutligrain loafer, potato pizza pin wheels, and mini bagels.
Debbie's cookbook is a great way to sample the delights that Hollywood's A List (like Gwyneth Paltrow) rave about. Ray Romano calls her "a culinary genius". Her bakery is the go-to place for allergy-free muffins. brownies, cookies, cupcakes, donut holes, and breads. Even people who don't have allergies to gluten, dairy, eggs, nuts, and soy are fans of Debbie's delights because they are made with whole food ingredients and are healthier than traditional baked foods without all of the refined sugar. Debbie uses healthy oils like coconut oil and grapeseed oil instead of butters or vegan spreads, and combines sweeteners for a beautiful depth of flavor. As Carol Fenster says, "These treats are SO good, you won't miss what's NOT in them!"
As I sit here eating my 4th cupcake....yes....I am already planning to make some more recipes this weekend to sample more of Debbie's magic. Or, I may just order some to be delivered!
Check out this fabulous book. It rocks!
