It’s time again for another round of  the Ratio Rally.  Up this month is Gluten-Free Pate Choux and I cannot wait to see all of the tasty creations my fellow gluten-free foodies bake.

I’ve been a busy bee in the kitchen…baking up the perfect recipe for you and I’ve found it.

It’s simple.

It’s easy.

It’s enticing.

It’s fun to make.  And only takes a few mere minutes to prepare.

It won’t heat up your kitchen (well, not for too long) in this warm summer weather.

But will just warm you up enough to get these babies nice n’ fluffy and scrumptious.

Just a few simple ingredients.

And I bet they’re all in your pantry.

The end result? Heaven. Like biting into a cloud.

So, what’s better than biting into a gluten-free (delicious) cloud?  Well, topping it with Creamy Macadamia Icing, of course.

I’ve developed a sweet n’ simple homemade icing that is great to spread atop these pate choux.

Whether you’re making these babies for a Sunday brunch, an afternoon nibble, a morning treat or an evening dessert, you’ll be very happy.  Very, very happy.

Big smiles coming your way with each bite.

It’s a mere dainty ‘puff’ of joy.

Well, it is for me at least.

Hehe. I’m a big fan and I know you’ll be one too.

They’re charming, to say the least, especially when served warm right out of the oven and spread with my creamy macadamia icing.

Go ahead, start your engines. Get bakin’ (and spreading) these pate choux are pretty hard to pass up and this macadamia icing is gunna be appearing in lots of recipes this summer…I think I’ve got all of my taste-testers hooked.

(My apologies in advance as I’m having computer picture trouble and unable to add my pictures to my posts at this time…as soon as this is fixed, I will be sure to put my pictures up. My apologies). xo

Hi, I'm Amie!

I’m here to share my story of healing with you. I know what it’s like to suffer and not know what’s going on with your body. I’ve been there. I was lost, searching for answers and alone for 10 years until I learned how to get my body working for me, not against me—to address the underlying symptoms instead of using a Band-aid approach to reclaim my vitality. I want to show you that eating and living clean feels incredible. Once you see life this way, you’ll never go back. Ever. Come play along with me on Instagram, Pinterest, Facebook and Twitter. I’m here for you. xo
