Grain-Free Banana Nut Muffins

I love fall and fall foods, so I’ve been wanting to make banana nut bread since our chilly snap last week (though today was as hot as the dickens again). Pumpkin bread is around the corner, too. Since we had a couple brown bananas waiting for me in the fridge, I thought I’d throw together


Happy Birthday to my Sweetie

Well, happy birthday to him yesterday. And as a birthday gift to all of you? I give you this cake. And since I made it with a 3-week-old baby who is nursing constantly when she is awake… you know it must be easy. Plus it’s grain-free and gluten-free. Score! And my husband just wouldn’t be


Grain-Free Gluten-Free Graham Cracker Recipe

Today while skimming through blogs, I came across this recipe for Homemade Graham Crackers. And they just happened to also be grain-free! And they ALSO happened to use ingredients I had on hand already! So I had to go for it. I love(d) graham crackers… sometimes you just want something cinnamony and honey-y that will


Grain-Free Gluten-Free Cookies of Awesomeness

Yes, I’m still pregnant, still in Prodromal Labor… consistent contractions all day and night, but that’s just the “problem.” They’re not getting more intense, so… I’m left in limbo. And what do people in limbo do? Bake cookies! (And make tomato basil sauce out of the TONS of tomatoes from our garden, but I didn’t


Grain-Free (Coconut Flour) Zucchini Bread Recipe

Zucchini is something I look forward to every spring and summer… and I always hope for a bountiful crop of it in my garden. Other people complain about having too many, but I never seem to have enough for everything I want to do with it! Last year, our plant hardly made any at all,


Grain-Free Recipe: Chocolate Chocolate Chip Cookies

I’ve been looking for a great grain-free cookie recipe for a little bit now, mostly because I think my sweet husband (who has a sweet tooth to rival famous sweet teeth the world over) would like some cookies now and then. And, you know, so would I. Well the other day I found SUCCESS with


Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Cake

A couple nights ago, I made this cake, by throwing things into the stand mixer in a whirlwind, then dumping everything into the oven. And you know what? It worked. It was delicious, and my husband and I both enjoyed it for dessert, then for breakfast the next day. Oh, and it’s 100% Real Food


“Real Food” Grain-free Gluten-Free Muffins/Cupcakes

So recently, I’ve been going through my internet bookmarks trying to sort things out – deleting bookmarks, and clipping things to Evernote (which OMG I am LOVING by the way). And I came across this recipe for Nut Butter Muffins on Grain-Free Foodies. Well I’ve had a jar of almond butter in my fridge for


What to Do With Lemons: Raw Lemon Cookie Recipe

I wrote earlier about life giving me lemons, and how that’s a GOOD thing. I love lemons! They are beautiful, taste great in and on so many things, and smell amazing. But sometimes, life  (or your boss/friend/neighbor/tree) might give you something closer to 5 dozen lemons at a time. And there’s only so much lemonade


Low Fat Muffin thingies ~130 calories

Here’s another low-fat low-calorie snack, if you’re going that route. Basically it’s just a box of cake mix (they have lower-sugar ones which will help your cause a little) mixed with a can of pumpkin puree. These are the first ones I made. It’s devil’s food cake mix, and I mixed in the pumpkin by


Superbowl Food – Mini Muffins?

Mini muffins are the last thing you’d expect as Superbowl fare, but when they’re jalapeno cheddar cornbread muffins, there could hardly be anything better! Jalapeno Cheddar Honey Cornbread You Will Need: bacon grease or Pam Cooking Spray 1 cup all-purpose flour 1 cup yellow cornmeal 1/4 cup sugar 1 tablespoon baking powder 1 cup milk


Look at me all baking homemade bread from scratch…

I wrote before about my incompetence with yeast… and the fact that my only successes had been in a bread machine. Then I sort of broke the cycle with this Italian bread. I followed the Joy of Cooking’s instructions step by step, and yielded something yummy. Well, guess what I did today… I flew… all
