Berry Clafoutis

IMG_6037

I stumbled upon this French custard dessert a while ago on Pinterest. Of course, I just had to do it my way and made it with chocolate rather than fruit. Then, while updating some of the recipes on my blog the other day I came upon the chocolate clafouti recipe and realized that I never […]

Fruit Sauce

I originally used this sauce on these lemon crepes, but have since then used it so many different ways that it deserves its own page. I updated the recipe, tweaked it a bit to perfect it, and now here it is. Blueberry Sauce   Print Prep time 5 mins Total time 5 mins   Fresh, […]

4 Years of Gingerbread Houses

IMG_5884

I’ve made it a tradition for the past few years to make a gingerbread house with my sisters every Christmas. I figured today (by the way, happy new years everbody!) I’d share four years of gingerberead houses (and improving photography skills let’s hope). First off, here’s the recipe. Make one of your own. If you can’t […]

Butternut “Pumpkin” Pie

IMG_5053

I took it into my head that this year I wanted to make a pumpkin pie without any of that toxic white sugar. Of course, I haven’t completely given up on white sugar. Yesterday’s fudge post should be proof of that. But either way, this pumpkin pie is sugar free. I also ran out of canned pumpkin […]

Fudge

The perfect thanksgiving or christmas dessert (we also put this fudge in christmas baskets to give to friends, which when you think about it is a bit mean because we’re basically poisoning them with sugar)! Anyway, this recipe is super easy, super sweet, and everything fudge ought to be. And what is this time of year […]

Gingerbread Muffins

With winter in the air, I’ve suddenly wanted spicy, wintery foods. Like these gingerbread muffins. Or pumpkin pie (recipe soon). Or cinnamon rolls. I guess it’s just this idea of what winter is supposed to be. Am I the only one picturing blankets, those weird-looking slippers, a mug of hot chocolate (marshmallows! sugar!) and a steaming […]

On this blog I already have Cinnamon Nut Muffins, Coconut Pecan Carrot Cake Muffins, Lemon Blueberry Muffins, Yeast Muffins, Chocolate Chip Banana Muffins, Paleo Banana Muffins, and Pumpkin Muffins. So now here you have some delightful little poppy seed muffins. Cook them up some cold Saturday morning. […]

Gluten Free Made Easy Cookbook

IMG_3517

A few weeks back I was contacted about featuring a cookbook called “Gluten Free Made Easy” by Christi Silbaugh and Michele Vilseck. As this post probably demonstrates, I was interested. I’d never done a feature before (so being that this is my first try, don’t expect extreme excellence or elegance) but I was willing to give it a […]

Gluten Free Apple Cobbler

IMG_2263

You’ve gotta have apple cobbler. It’s just one of those necessities of life. Like chocolate or books. Books. I’ve been on a book marathon lately. Except not really a marathon. It’s just that sometimes I’m hungry for food and other times I have a voracious appetite for books. Sometimes both. I think I read three […]

Make Your Own Tulip Cupcake Liners

IMG_2499-2

Yesterday I decided to make some chocolate cupcakes. The only problem was that we were completely out of cupcake liners. For a while I was using these super cool (not) tiger striped cupcake liners. We’re talking genuine tiger stripes here. As in bright obnoxious orange with black streaks. I can’t really say that I’m sad […]
