On Tuesday, July 14th at 6:30pm Warwick's and Mission Viejo Library will host Rachel Conners for a live virtual recipe demonstration and discussion of her new cookbook, Bakerita: 100+ No-Fuss Gluten-Free, Dairy-Free, and Refined Sugar-Free Recipes for the Modern Baker. Rachel Conners started her blog in 2010 because baking was a creative outlet and act of love that she wanted to share with the world. Soon after moving away from home to attend the University of Puget Sound, she began to experiment with more healthful ways of baking, like gluten-free, paleo, and vegan, in large part due to her sister's health issues. After graduating from college, Rachel decided to dive headfirst into her blog, and over the past several years, Rachel has turned Bakerita from a hobby into a career. Bakerita allows Rachel to share her love of good food, health, and wellness as each of her recipes is created with no refined sugars, no dairy, and no gluten. Rachel lives with her dog in San Diego, California. This a free virtual event on Facebook Live.
Rachel Conners began her blog as a hobby to share baking recipes with friends, but when she started to focus more on gluten-free, paleo, and vegan recipes to make things she could share with her sister, who was following a strict diet due to health concerns, Rachel quickly realized she was onto something. Bakerita surged in popularity as fans flocked to it for delicious and beautifully photographed recipes. Interest in gluten-free, grain-free, dairy-free, and refined sugar-free foods continues to grow in popularity, yet there are remarkably few books available focused just on desserts, and even fewer with recipes that even beginner bakers can make at home. That's where Bakerita comes in, offering recipes for everything from breakfast treats like Lavender-Lemon Raspberry Scones, pies and tarts such as Chocolate Mousse Pie, cakes including Mocha Chip Cheesecake, and updated all-time favorites like chocolate chip cookies, all made without any hard-to-find ingredients.
