The phrase “In like a lion, out like a lamb,” has crossed my mind several times this last week. As I write, the wind is whipping, and there is a lightning show illuminating the city in front of me. We’ve had some serious winds, warm temps, then a dusting of snow, then warm temps…you get the idea. And so that phrase about March and April that so many of us grew up learning is ringing true. (Let’s hope April is lamb-like)….
A sweet cake donut made with whole grains flours, these Irish Coffee Cake Donuts are a perfect gluten-free and dairy-free breakfast treat.
Spring break has commenced for me this week and luckily the weather agrees whole-heartedly. That interior decorating issue we were having last week? Well, we took down those things we had already hung on the wall and I spent my first day of break painting. White walls. Everywhere. We’re going minimalist, my friends!
But what is certainly more exciting than painting walls are these Irish Coffee Cake Donuts. So we’ll get to it. …
Decadent and rich Gluten-Free Brownies that make for an easy dairy-free, grain-free, and refined sugar-free treat.
Home decorating is one of those things that no one ever mentioned in the list of “grown-up” tasks that would be so hard and so dang frustrating.
Had someone told my younger self that as an adult I would spend countless hours trying to figure out paint colors, furniture configurations, and the type of shelving needed in the bathroom, I would have said “No, thanks.”
We’ve reached the point in the renovation of the loft that some real decisions have to be made about how the space is going to feel and flow.
Unlike an ordinary house where you have clear room designations, what we do in one area of the space seriously impacts another.
It is also a situation where two self-proclaimed stubborn people make zero traction.
In a recent discussion about where we were going to put what on the walls, I was out of ideas and at a loss of where to start. Brain-freeze at its best.
Neither one of us was suggesting something that the other one liked (aka vehemently opposed), and all I could really think about was, brownies sound really good right now. …
Hearty and satisfying, this gluten-free Huevos Rancheros Polenta Bowl recipe is a delicious take on a breakfast favorite.
My first introduction to huevos rancheros was in college. As I’ve mentioned here before, my intro to all things brunch—sweet, savory, light, and decadent—was also in college. I was in New Orleans to study music, but when I look back to that time, I learned much about the joy food could bring from preparation to meal time and how intricately it was woven into the culture there.
That first huevos rancheros blew my mind. Being from the Midwest, it wasn’t a dish that graced many breakfast menus (at least that I had seen), and it quickly became one of my favorites….
A moist and delicious Pistachio Olive Oil Cake with Honeyed Kumquats is a gluten-free, grain-free, and refined sugar-free treat.
This last weekend it was as if someone waved a magic wand and spring magically appeared. 70 degrees in February for a few days was absolutely glorious. And now it’s cold again. But, you guys, spring is coming.
Besides the potential changing of seasons, this week marks two years in this space! I had to go back and make sure that was correct – time has seemed to have flown in light years and cookies. The first year of this little blog’s life had sporadic posts as I documented those recipes that helped me in the learning process of baking gluten-free. The more success in the kitchen I had, the more time I wanted to devote to this space. Gluten-free baking can be good!! (This is what I want to yell from the rooftops sometimes)….
A 1-bowl dessert, these Gluten-Free Peanut Butter Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies are made with all-natural peanut butter and sweetened with maple syrup.
Sometimes you just want a cookie. Sometimes you just want a cookie made to your current craving specifications. The time it takes from cookie-craving alert to pulling the cookies out of the oven also has to be minimal. No fuss, no chill time. Almost as if you said, “I need cookies STAT!”, and there they were.
I dealt with this very same situation earlier this week. Sometimes you want a cookie loaded with peanut butter, oats, chocolate chips, and sweetened with maple syrup, and I did. And honestly, I didn’t just want it, I think I needed it. This happens too, right?…
