I recently read recipe development instructions that stated: “should not include ingredients that are too obscure or aren’t available for the average cook, such as cumin.” Cumin! In a pinch, I’m pretty sure I’ve picked up cumin at 7-11 or the drugstore at midnight (sometimes you need tacos, guys). Living in California with a meyer lemon tree in my yard has probably slanted my perception of what counts as obscure, but surely cumin is common, right?
It is not very often that I get this excited about one of my recipes! During hot summer months, the last thing I want to do is bake in a hot kitchen. As we currently have a heat wave, I developed a gluten-free dessert recipe that will keep you cool and can be whipped up in minutes. This gluten-free lemon coconut bar is delightfully zesty, refreshingly cold and tastes almost like coconut ice cream. A must-have dessert this summer!
