Merry Day-After Christmas everyone! You still full from your meals yesterday? I hope not, because this little baby I’m about to lay on you is *awesome*. In all honesty, this is less of an actual recipe and more just a fantastic idea. My friend Susan (from Blotal Recall) makes these delicious Sweet Cinnamon Pecans at […]

I know what you are thinking, “She barely posts for months and then two cookie recipes in one week?!” Or maybe that’s just what I’m thinking. But, ’tis the season for cookies and finding gluten free adaptations of my traditional holiday cookies has been consuming me lately. There were a couple of failures there that […]

It was my birthday last week and this is the exchange I had with my 3 year old son on the morning of my birthday: Andy: Happy birthday mommy, I love you. Me: Thank you, Andy. I love you too. Andy: I want some of your cake. Me: What cake? It’s 9am, there’s no cake. […]

Banana Upside Down Cake

The other night Evelyn and I were reading Charlotte’s Web. Would you believe that a description of the slop thrown into Wilbur the pig’s trough was the inspiration for this cake? Well, believe it!

So, I was lying on the beach fantasizing about ice cream. Specifically the strawberry ice cream I made a while back. My mind was lingering over the gorgeous peaches and blueberries I’ve been getting from the farmer’s market all summer. It dawned on me that I could use the same exact strawberry ice cream recipe […]
