Since we’ve gone gluten free in the house I have spent most of my baking efforts of trying to master cookies and cakes. My fear/guilt that The Boy (and his non-gluten intolerant sister) will feel deprived of these things was palpable and so my attention was pretty strongly fixed on those items. But recently I’ve […]

Have I mentioned how happy I’ve been to enjoy all these lovely baked goods on my diet? I think I have, but I honestly had no idea before this that it was so easy to make muffins and sweet breakfast breads so low fat and low calorie. It’s been a wonderful revelation.

Marinated Swordfish

This is another swordfish marinade recipe. I’m not sure what exactly to say about it because I’ve already waxed on about the deliciousness of swordfish very recently and I don’t want to bore anyone.

A while back my friend Susan posted these gorgeous Lemon Blueberry Oatmeal Cookies on her blog. Now, you know how I feel about sweet lemon, right? So, I was beyond excited to try these until I realized that not only didn’t I have any dried blueberries on hand, but my lemons were looking the worse […]

Cranberry Sauce

I remember as a kid on Thanksgiving getting the can of jellied cranberry sauce. My mom always had the “chunky” kind for the grown-ups and the jellied kind for the kids and I LOVED it. I would beg to open the can and after placing it on the table I would sneak in a steal […]
