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 […]

Coconut Cake (dairy free and refined sugar free options)


Sometimes I feel like writing and sometimes I don’t. Today I don’t. So I probably shouldn’t, because I’ll end up writing something really weird about aliens or extinct mammoths, and then I’ll come back here later and look at it and wonder how I even started thinking about extinct mammoths. So instead, I’m going to […]

Yam Salad


Okay, I just need to let you know before we get started: This could very well be a sweet potato salad instead of a yam salad. My sisters and I have been arguing about yams vs. sweet potatoes for a long time now. I looked it up on the internet but there were varying definitions, […]

My family once had this weird discussion starting with “If you had been starving for two weeks on a desert island, and you were finally rescued, what would you most want to eat?” Nobody really said much about sweet desserts or chocolate. Most of the responses included “good thick bread with butter” and “very creamy […]

Flourless Fudge Brownies

flourless fudge brownies-20

I feel so disloyal. You see, I have another brownie recipe. A good brownie recipe. A brownie recipe that I’ve sworn by for at least seven years. A brownie recipe that has never once disappointed. But we were out of flour yesterday. We needed a dessert. (Yes, you heard me. We needed a dessert. This […]

Paleo Pancakes (without bananas)

paleopancakes (12 of 16) - Copy

I figured that if I’m going to have some paleo recipes on this blog, I should have a paleo pancake recipe. Something I’ve noticed about paleo people: They must all love having bananas in their pancakes, because pretty much ever recipe I’ve seen contains bananas. I hate to disappoint them. But there are no bananas […]
