Butternut “Pumpkin” Pie

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 […]



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 […]


Poppy Seed Muffins

You can never have too many muffin recipes. 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

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

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

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 […]


Lemon Blueberry Muffins

I needed a perfectly amazing blueberry muffin. You see, when you hear the words “Blueberry Muffin” there is a very definite idea of what that should be. It should be light and mildly sweet, and plain enough that the blueberries are in the spotlight, but not so plain that they are flavorless. The barely perceptible […]
