This lemon rhubarb cake is good. http://food52.com/recipes/12553_glutenfree_rhubarb_lemon_and_almond_cake

I also like the flavor and texture of Elana's Pantry carrot cake (http://www.elanaspantry.com/carrot-cake/), but I don't think it adapts to cupcakes well because they don't really rise. If you wanted to fix that you could try using baking powder instead of soda, increasing the amount to two teaspoons.

Oh, and when peeled the whites had brown spots from where they had touched the oven rack. I put them in straight out of the fridge.

Yeah, I actually found that this temp and time was a bit too much, one egg exploded and another cracked. The rest of the eggs had some blue around the yolk. Maybe go shorter by 5 minutes?

When Harvard School of Public Health recently made over muffins, they suggested a combination of whole wheat, all-purpose flour, and almond flour.

I personally like to use brown rice flour with almond flour to make gluten-free stuff, but don't have a pancake recipe for this combo.

What a coincidence, I just got home from the grocery store with some yellow summer squash to make a pasta free version of carbonara. You can go half and half squash "noodles" & pasta, or replace the pasta entirely. I was thinking of adding spinach, but I'll definitely keep the pancetta and parmesan!

Does he have trouble with just refined sugar or with natural sugars and carbs? If it's carbs in general that are causing trouble, you might want to try the paleo diet, with more protein and healthy fat for him, and more vegetables for you.

We have a living room like this, although it has windows on one long side instead of a door. We ended up putting bookshelves and a chaise lounge on one end of the room, with a piano to come. The chaise angles in to break up all the horizontal lines. On the long wall with windows we are putting a loveseat that faces a tv in the opposite corner.

One time some guys volunteered to make fried turkeys for the local homeless shelter on Thanksgiving. Nice idea.

But they tried to fry them, still partially frozen, in BUTTER. Disaster.

Don't do that.
