These scrumptious cookies are so good you would never guess that they were gluten-free. Prep time: 15 minutes, Serves 4-6
BakeSpace MartiniSubmitted by: Photo Credit: http://foodieisthenewforty.blogspot.com/2010/03/techmunch.html
Who doesn't love a good martini? This sweet version was served as one of our signature drink recipes at our food blogger conference called TECHmunch.
Gluten-Free Red Pepper Jelly Crostini with Goat Cheese and BasilI love Crostini appetizers. But after being diagnosed with celiac disease, those apps were out. Recently though, I found (to much joy!) gluten-free baguettes sold at my local grocer. I bought a loaf, brought it home, and started experimenting. This is my favorite of all the recipes I came up with. It's delicious. Easy. And looks darn impressive too! =) Submitted by: "Kathleen Reale"
Asian Chicken WingsThis wing recipe was given to me by a family friend, I remember having them at gatherings growing up. Submitted by: "Lisa Cory"
Banana Split Seven-Layer DipTraditional seven-layer dip is an old Super Bowl and game day favorite. So why not a dessert 7-layer dip? This version marries chocolate pie, banana Nutella, and strawberries and cream in a dippable dish we'll call Banana Split 7-layer Dip. Submitted by: "Michelle Jenkins | DailyWaffle"
Vanilla CupcakesI took a cupcake making class at Butter Lane Cupcakes in NYC. These were some of the best cupcakes that I have ever tasted...and everyone needs a great "go to" vanilla cupcake recipe! Submitted by: "Kimberly Coleman"
Tex Mex Potato LatkesNow that I live in Texas, I am pretty heavily influenced by tasty Texan foodie delights such as queso, brisket, breakfast tacos, and of course queso. Mmm queso. So when I thought about how to jazz up the traditional latke, I immediately thought Mexican. Besides my residence close to the border, my former roommate back in NYC is half Jewish and half Mexican and she turned out pretty amazing, so surely it could work for a latke! An idea was born. Though there is no queso in sight, there is not a chance these babies will last even one round of dreidel come Hanukkah time. Submitted by: "Amy Kritzer"
Salted Caramel Thumbprint CookiesI am not a baker. So, when my Salted Caramel Thumbprint Cookies turned out, no one was more surprised than me! Life is about stepping out of your comfort zone and well baking from scratch is quite uncomfortable! This recipe is easy. Very Easy. The cookies are melt-in-your mouth delicious with the perfect combination of sweet from the caramel with the sprinkling of sea salt. Truly a match made in cookie heaven. Submitted by: "Sandi McKenna"
Broccoli and Caramelized Onion PizzaThe hubby and I love to make grilled pizzas. The crusts are easy to make, and they turn out so well on the grill -- plus it's a lovely excuse to get outside on a beautiful day! Submitted by: "Lauren Walz"
Holy Moly Jalapeño PoppersThe jalapeño poppers recipe comes from hanging out on Saturdays in the South at BBQs in backyards over beers. If you have ever smoked a pork butt or brisket or rack of ribs, it takes time and is well worth it. But you need snacks and nothing is better than coming up with items you can throw on the smoker, or grill, during the day to munch on and hold over your appetite. This is one of those such items. Submitted by: "Michael Benedict"
Crispy Chicken Tortilla RollupsI created these flauta-chimichanga hybrid for our Cinco de Mayo celebration last year, and they were a huge hit. I was absolutely floored when this recipe became very popular via Pinterest and a couple of other sharing sites. This is hands down my most popular recipe to date -- it's been pinned more than 52K times! I have received a lot of positive feedback via comments and e-mail that other people enjoy it a lot as well. This one is popular for a reason...and I hope you enjoy it too!! Submitted by: "Wendy (The Weekend Gourmet)"
Vanilla Cupcakes Recipe with Vanilla Cream Cheese IcingThere's nothing sweeter than a vanilla cupcake recipe..
Simple Spinach & Artichoke DipThis recipe is one of my most shared recipes on www.kaseyskitchen.com. I was inspired by a recipe that my mom would make at all of our family gatherings but I decided to add my own twist on it! Submitted by: "Kasey Potts - Kasey's Kitchen"
Buffalo Cauliflower “Wings” With Bleu “Cheese” Dipping SaucePeople party food! Whether it's to watch the game, yummy movie night snacks or a casual get together, yummy appetizers are always welcomed. Buffalo wings are an American classic, however, for non-meat eaters, they're a no go. But meat eaters and green eaters alike can enjoy these spicy snacks featuring a vogue veggie, cauliflower! Submitted by: "Carolyn Scott-Hamilton, The Healthy Voyager"
Cream Cheese and Tuna BitesMy preschool aged daughter loves tuna and I am always trying creative ways to use the ingredient in her snacks. A pretty snack with tuna and vegetables is perfect for my daughter and to serve to guests visiting for dinner! Submitted by: "Heather Riccobono"
‘Loaded Baked Potato’ Pasta SaladThis ‘end of Summer’ pasta salad is filled with a creamy & tangy dressing, crisp green onions, crunchy bacon and shreds of cheddar cheese. It's perfect for barbecues, showers and dinners al fresco. Totally addicting and as I've been told, one for the record books! Submitted by: "Jessica Reddick Gatlin"
Super Fresh Cole SlawWhile vacationing in Scottsdale, Arizona, Frieda's Specialty Produce President & CEO Karen Caplan was inspired by the Grilled Shrimp Salad at Blanco Tacos + Tequila. At home, Karen turned that salad into a light but satisfying cole slaw with 7 vegetables, dressed with zesty vinaigrette. Submitted by: "Karen Caplan"
Indian PuddingThis is a recipe I make every fall or winter in honor of my 10 ancestors who came over from England on the Mayflower. Indian pudding, so named because the settlers called the corn meal introduced to them by the native people "Indian meal," is one of the first American foods to be documented. A quintessential New England dish, it doesn't get a lot of play in the rest of the country, so it always surprises guests. I wanted to share it with my fellow TechMunch attendees so they, too, can surprise their guests with an unexpected dessert. Submitted by: "Jean | DelightfulRepast.com"
Chocolate Ganache Loaf CakeI have always wanted to make a traditonal "Yule Log" but never have the time or the patience to make one so I created a "deconstructed" Yule Log. Same flavors, similar look, way less time! Submitted by: "Laura Petersen"
Cancun Grilled Chicken Tacos with Citrus Chile MarinadeThis healthy grilled recipe takes all the citrus and chile flavors of Cancun and rolls them into a taco. The tacos are fast and easy enough for everyday meals. I threw the recipe together while staying with my nieces and nephew using only the ingredients they had in their own refrigerator and I'll bet you have the ingredients in your fridge right now! Submitted by: "Sandy Hoopes"
Thai Red Curry Pumpkin HummusI absolutely love Thai food. It is my go-to comfort food and I could pretty much eat it anytime. I was experimenting with ideas for dips one day while craving Thai food so I decided to use red curry paste in hummus and the result was amazing. I can't get enough of this dip and it's now one of my go-to recipes! Submitted by: "Barbara Ecker"
Roasted Strawberry JamI adapted this from a post on the blog, Eat the Love, and served it with fresh buttermilk scones in honor of the royal wedding of William and Kate, and in memory of my mom, who loved things like royal weddings. It's perfect for sharing once you make it, and I couldn't resist sharing the recipe here. Submitted by: "Sharon Graves"
Eggs in PurgatoryI enjoyed something similar while I had brunch at Sagra in Austin, and decided it was one of those dishes that seems like it took so much time and effort to make, but it really doesn't!! You can control the heat with the amount of red pepper flakes you add, and adding a drizzle of truffle oil at the end gives it great depth of flavor. Submitted by: "Ane Urquiola"
Zucchini Oatmeal Raisin CookiesAs the end of harvest season approaches, zucchini has already become my most obsessed over vegetable. If you're like me, you are constantly finding new ways to use it. Have you ever tried it in cookies? I have! These cookies, in fact. They were wonderful. An excellent way to add a bit more zucchini to your diet. Submitted by: "Lizz Clements"
Kielbasa Cabbage BurritoMy sister-in-law made this recipe as an appetizer using small flour tortilla and we loved it so much that I make it for our dinner now. It's quick and simple, yet quite flavorful. I'm going to say that this is 6 servings because I think normal people will have 1 filled flour tortilla. My husband and I are not normal and we have 2. So use your judgement on number of servings and how hungry you are. You may have to double the recipe if you're having company. Submitted by: "Sylvia Ellie"
Roasted Asparagus with Honey Maple Tahini SauceThis is a unique way to use tahini. Tahini is very common in Middle Eastern cuisine which I love. Submitted by: "Norma Dimsey"
Spicy Catfish Cakes for the Slow Carb LifestyleSince starting the Slow Carb Diet/Lifestyle a year ago, I have been on a quest to find and adapt dishes that have a robust flavor profile, but are quick and easy. Inspired by one of Gordon Ramsey's shows, I tried a range of fishcake recipes, eventually creating one I was in love with. After experimenting with different renditions of fish cakes, I found that fish cakes can be as dry as cardboard. Creating a flavorable, tender cake came down to two variations: what kind of fish was used, and how thoroughly the fish was broken down in the mixing process. Using a mix of cod and catfish, these fishcakes were flaky, tender and mellow in flavor, enhanced by a spicy chile sauce and a tangy tartar sauce. Submitted by: "Dorothy Stainbrook"
Curried Chicken SaladThrough my blog, "Panning The Globe", I’ve learned that there’s often a rich history or, at the very least, an interesting story that explains how a particular dish came to be. I traced curried chicken salad back to Queen Elizabeth’s Coronation. They called it “Coronation Chicken…a recipe of cold chicken in a curry cream sauce.” It was invented to feed the 350 foreign dignitaries attending Queen Elizabeth II’s coronation luncheon on June 2,1953. Here's my updated version. For more about this recipe, including a link to the original "coronation chicken" recipe visit "Panning The Globe" http://www.panningtheglobe.com Submitted by: "Lisa Goldfinger"
Sweet Banana PuddingEveryone loves banana pudding, and this recipe is just a little bit sweeter than usual with the addition of coffee creamer in the place of some of the milk! Submitted by: "Jennifer Quillen"
Chicken Sausage Rotini SupremiThis recipe was created when I discovered a new type of sausage in my supermarket. This is what I like to call a "pantry meal". I often look through my fridge and pantry to find inspiration and see what I come up with. Some of my favorite recipes are created this way. This is how my grandmother often cooked, which inspired my blog, www.myitaliangrandmother.com. With a pound of chicken sausage, some vegetables and pasta a fabulous meal was created. I love the versatility of this dish; substitute the pasta and serve it over brown rice, swap out the mushrooms and replace with zucchini. Let your taste buds guide you. The more often you cook, the easier it will become. There is no wrong way to make a pantry meal. Submitted by: "Michele Brigante"
Heavenly Lemon Tart (Gluten-Free)Growing up in Southern & Northern California, I always had several citrus trees on our property. Twice a year my grandmother would come stay at my home for a few weeks and we would do nothing but canning, baking and more baking! Throughout the years my grandmother, mom and I made several recipes that have been passed down from my great-grandmother, great-aunts and other family members. My great-grandmother Anna won a Betty Crocker Cook-off in the 1950′s and yes I will be writing a blog post on this with soon including the original newspaper clip! With having access to fresh citrus pretty much year round, we always had so many lemons we did not know what to do with them! However, my grandmother was always so creative in the kitchen. From lemon curd to lemon crumble bars and every lemon dessert you can think of in between, my grandmother had a recipe for it! My favorite however was her lemon tart. It was the perfect balance of creamy sweet goodness, but tart enough to make your mouth pucker with every bite! Submitted by: "Rachelle King - Blinded by the Bite!"
Cherry Chipotle Meatball SlidersI made these meatball sliders on a morning when my 15-year-old's string quartet was rehearsing in the living room. Those poor kids had to smell this cooking for half an hour while they tried to play Beethoven. Talk about distraction! After their rehearsal they polished off a huge platter of these sliders in less than 10 minutes. I love meatballs in any form, but sliders make them finger food and thus even more awesome. The flavors of the chopped mushrooms in the meat mixture and the Cherry Chipotle Not Ketchup sauce are a perfect pairing. Submitted by: "Erika Kerekes"
David's Good Luck Black-eyed Pea and Sausage stoupThis is a recipe my good friend David created for us to ensure we had available our Good Luck Black-eyed peas on New Year's day. We've been eating this every end of year and on New Year's day since at least 2006. It's a tradition in our lives. Submitted by: "Karen Fraser"
Baked Polenta Fries with Marinara Dipping SauceWe snack a LOT in our house and these Baked Polenta Fries are perfect for satisfying that hunger between meals and also make a great side dish to any lunch or dinner. Baked not fried –– gives them a lighter quality and easily accompanies the quick and easy marinara sauce. Submitted by: "Elizabeth Van Huffel @LocalSavour"
The Best Vegan Chocolate Chip Cookies Ever!I am a vegan, and I love all kinds of sweets. Many people think that being vegan means giving up delicious things like chocolate chip cookies. I want to share this recipe to show people how leading a plant-based lifestyle can be just as satisfying and easy to do as a non-plant-based one! I adapted this recipe from one I found on veganhousewives.com after google searching "The Best Vegan Chocolate Chip Cookies." These truly are the best I've ever had! Submitted by: "Annie Markowitz"

What is the Cookbook Café Platform?Cookbook Café is our one-of-a-kind cookbook publisher, marketplace and reader. It empowers everyone to create, market and distribute a cookbook as both a web-based eBook and an iPad app. It also makes it incredibly easy for home cooks to discover and use amazing grassroots cookbooks they won't find anywhere else. Since 2012, we've published thousands of cookbooks authored by home chefs, nonprofit organizations, clubs, brands, etc. Our goal is to democratize cookbook publishing and make it easy to build an online library of amazing grassroots cookbooks.
How do I "download" a cookbook?You don't need to "download" cookbooks or deal with any files. All of the cookbooks you select (free and paid) using Cookbook Café become available to you automatically on any device (computer, tablet or smartphone) whenever you’re logged-in to your free BakeSpace account.
When you see a cookbook you like, simply click the green "Get it Now" button. If you're not logged in to BakeSpace, you'll be asked to login (or join) so the cookbook can be added to your cookbook library. Once in your library, you can access the cookbook anytime, anywhere via BakeSpace.com, as well as our Cookbook Café iPad app.
While you're checking out cookbooks, also take some time to visit other parts of the delicious BakeSpace.com community where you can swap recipes and connect with others who share your passion for food and the culinary lifestyle.
Get ready to enjoy a uniquely smart and social cookbook experience!Once a cookbook is added to your BakeSpace library, our proprietary recipe indexing technology makes it easy for you to find any specific recipe across all of your cookbooks… so there's no need to remember which cookbook contains that perfect recipe.

Technology is beginning to democratize book publishing by giving authors control over the entire process -- from content to distribution, marketing and sales. This cookbook is from submissions during our live publishing session at SXSW. Our presentation at SXSW goes beyond discussion to demonstrate (live and in real-time) some of the latest do-it-yourself publishing technology. Check out their recipes - from food lovers across the globe!
My dad grew up in Albania and I can always remember the kitchen being filled with things like cabbage, fresh bread, lamb and greek yogurt - the real kind, not the sweet kind you find in the store. He came to the US with no money and a dream of being an American. He always said, he was an American the day he was born. This is a collection of his favorite recipes. I've also added our BakeSpace Google Hangout where we talk about cooking with our dads.
These are the recipes from the TECHmunch Austin Community Food Bloggers who attended our conference in March 2013. Join us as we celebrate their love for food! Thank you to everyone who submitted a recipe. See you next year!
We think it’s time to democratize cookbook publishing! Thank you for downloading Cookbook Cafe and for joining us as we create an entirely new way to publish and shop for cookbooks. With Cookbook Cafe, any home chef, group or nonprofit organization can publish an interactive cookbook as both an iPad app and a web-based ebook. They can then give it away or sell it to the world for profit or fundraising via the Cookbook Cafe storefront. It's an idea whose time has come. After all, why should only "big name" chefs get a chance to make it as a cookbook author? Unlike other do-it-yourself publishing services that help authors create traditional ebooks or mobile apps, Cookbook Cafe is free AND not limited by technology platform. It functions across different types of devices, including the iPad and any desktop or mobile web browser. Best of all, many of the books you’ll find on Cookbook Cafe help support worthy nonprofit organizations that use community cookbooks to raise funds. Cookbook Cafe was created by Webby honored food social network and recipe swap BakeSpace.com. We've added my two favorite cupcake recipes to this cookbook so you can get an idea of what our cookbooks are like. If you have any questions, please send us an email at Babette@bakespace.com or follow us on twitter @bakespace. Together let's change the world one recipe at a time!
Some of our favorite cocktail recipes at BakeSpace HQ! :) Enjoy!
