art, music, short films, coffee, and gluten free treats...

The Culture Club even was a great time- we had a lot of positive feedback, happy samplers and purchasers, and met some great people & connections to help bring our treats to the East Bay. Many thanks to the Bold Italic for inviting us!

ps- the Vegan Blueberry Coffee Cake with a GF Oat and Almond flour topping made its debut and it sure is delicious!

With Halloween behind us, and all the gf trick-or-treat goodies (we enjoyed chocolate cupcakes with orange frosting and pumpkin cupcakes with chocolate frosting as well as homemade caramel apples to celebrate!), it's time to look forward to well, even more baking!

With celebrations and holiday parties for Thanksgiving, Hanukkah, Christmas, and New Years upon us, why not leave the baking to us and spend your time with loved ones.

Some delicious treats to consider taking to your next party or enjoying at home include:

Sweet Potato Pie
Pumpkin Pie

Pear Tart
Lemon or Orange Almond Cake
Mini Cupakes
Chocolate Beet Cake
or if you have a request, let me know!

When ordering, please give us a week's notice. If it is less than a week, please still inquire, but just know it may be a little harder to fill your request, but we always try to make it work. Our contact information can be found to the right under "Baked Good Items" and all orders can be picked up from Underdog.

Farmer's Market and Special Orders

For those of us who may have a sweet tooth and any old bakery just won't do...

My name is Sara and I currently bake gluten and soy free treats that can be found at Underdog's booth at the Inner Sunset Farmer's Market (San Francisco) every Sunday from 9am-1pm. It is a fairly new business endeavor but something I have crafted in the kitchen since realizing my own food sensitivities.

Finding a delicious, scrumptious, gluten-free dessert that doesn't taste like cardboard and can even trick gluten eaters, is a hard task. And, my personal sweet tooth is not satisfied with store-bought options. As result, our baked goods are not just any gluten free dessert, they are taste tested again and again before they are presented to our customers.

I use mostly all organic ingredients, buying what I can from farmer's markets and the rest from co-ops. Plus, the treats are sweetened with alternative sugars like Sucanat, Palm sugar, Coconut Nectar, Date sugar and Agave. Many treats are also vegan, or at least dairy free.

And we do special orders too. Please reference the side bar to the right to view our current selection of baked goods with descriptions and photographs. Our mini cupcakes have been a hit for classroom birthday parties, allowing all the children to enjoy something sweet despite their food restrictions.

You can get in contact with us at sara.leeking@yahoo.com or stop on by the Farmer's Market, as we'd love to see you there!

New Year, New eating Habits?

It's that time again, when we examine what we did wrong in the previous year and proclaim an attempt to change in the upcoming year. You know, New Years resolutions. Personally speaking, I chose not to make any resolutions this year. I found that I am no good at them. And it is not because I do not have the will power necessary but instead, I see New Years resolutions on the silly side. Honestly. A one-time resolution at the beginning of the year only brings guilt; really, how many people strictly comply to their resolution? Self-actualization, well-being, and happiness, you know, all the underlying themes of resolutions like "get in shape" and "eat healthier" are goals we should strive for at all times, all year long. The acknowledgment to change or work on areas of our lives is important though, and if New Years sets that in motion, then I throw some support behind resolutions.

So in light of this, I want to bring attention to an article I read today about the danger of gluten and its role as an undiagnosed source for many as they suffer from acute and chronic diseases.


Ruling gluten out of one's diet may not be the conventional "eat healthier" resolution, but may just save your life... So pass it along to family and friends, co-workers and aquaintances or even to the lady or man next to you at the doctor's office, because I doubt "gluten" is on their doctor's intake form.

And yes, more posts with delicious pictures will be coming soon!
