Shop Small Day 171: Guess What's Cooking

Cream, butter, sugar, flour, eggs. Combine those ingredients and you can pretty much create any delicious dessert. Unless you’re living a gluten-free lifestyle. Unfortunately, most people think they have to sacrifice great taste when eliminating gluten, especially in baked goods.

Not anymore!

I know there are preconceived notions that gluten-free can’t possibly taste good. That’s why my mom’s testimony for today’s shop holds such merit.

While my mom is a great cook, there is nothing “light” about her recipes: lots of butter, heavy cream, she even uses half & half on her cereal (seriously, though, I challenge you to find better fried catfish than hers!)

So, I wasn’t surprised at her hesitation to try a slice of this gluten-free cake.

But, I was surprised at her reaction…she LOVED it!

More than just delicious baked goods & cakes, they also offer cooking classes for kids and adults. Additionally, they provide education for finding gluten-free friendly restaurants and grocery store tips.

Though Guess What’s Cooking does have a store front, they’re only going to be in this location for a short time, she’s looking for a bigger space!

So, hit the local farmer’s markets (Plainfield, Joliet Junior College, Bolingbrook Promenade, and Tinley Park to name a few) to find her gluten-free cakes, muffins, and hamburger buns.

Dairy and other allergy concerns? Contact owner Stephanie for special requests.

You won’t find a schedule of classes on her website, but if you follow her Facebook page you’ll see upcoming events.

You can also contact her to set up a class for you & your friends, or let Stephanie come teach a class at your school or organization!
