Gluten Free Raspberry Lemon Bars

I have never been much of a lemon fan.  Sure, a squeeze of lemon in my water or in a vinaigrette –that’s great, but I’ve never considered lemon as something I care much for when it comes to dessert.  I’m much more of a chocolate or Fall-spice kind of person when it comes to baked […]

Ginger Molasses Crinkle Cookies

When I think of Christmas — two main flavors come to mind.  If you feel that your Christmas spirit is best shared through cookie swaps and late night baking sprees — you must master these two flavors.  Eggnog and gingerbread.  To satisfy my eggnog requirement I often turn to this bread loaf.  Sooooo good!!  But, […]

Pineapple Upside-Down Pancakes

One of my all-time favorite desserts is pineapple upside-down cake.  Okay, truth is…I adore it.  It was often my personal birthday cake request growing up.  There are tons of really good paleo or gluten-free cake recipes out there, but sometimes I want to satisfy a certain craving without having to make a big dessert that […]

Pumpkin Latte Smoothie

Smoothies are good.  Lattes are good…but put the two together and you’ve got yourself a real treat.  I have really been enjoying these lately — especially here in Texas when the average temperature is still up in the mid 90’s.  My heart is ready for pumpkin season, but my sweat glands, well let’s just say […]

Pumpkin Granola (Nut-Free)

Pumpkin season is among us, folks!  It’s early on…I know, but can you really have too much pumpkin goodness?  I know I can’t!  My initial interest was in creating some snacks to have on hand because my schedule at work has been really busy.  I don’t typically fall into the “snacker” category, but I have […]

Easter Round-Up 2014

I remember one Easter, in particular.  I woke up Sunday morning only to discover small white & pink paw-print cut-outs scattered around in the house.  My mom had strategically displayed them all around in hopes that my brother and I would believe that…”the Easter Bunny came!”

Avocado & Strawberry Toast

Spring is here!  I say that, but as I am here typing it is cold and rainy outside.  Geez.  What are you up to mother nature?  You’ve got us all confused.  At any rate, strawberries are readily available at the market and they look beautiful.

Sun Cups — Product Review

Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups.  Reese’s Peanut Butter Pieces, Pumpkins, Trees, Eggs, Hearts… haha!  The Hershey Company has done a fantastic job of making sure that no matter the holiday, and no matter the shape — they can fill a chocolate shell with the ooey-gooey goodness of peanut butter.  But let me ask you folks, what would you […]

Super Bowl Party — Top 10

Picture this — it’s Sunday afternoon and the big game is about to start.  Friends and family are gathered around the tube and everyone’s eyes are focused straight ahead — what do you need to make this picture perfect?  Finger foods.

Eggnog Pancakes

From what I have gathered — folks either hate or love eggnog.  They either have a major holiday crush on the stuff, or think it’s disgusting.  I for one, adore the spiced-milky drink and it is a must for my holiday spirit… and how about anything you can make with eggnog?  Even better!!  Last year I made a fantastic Eggnog Bread […]
