Perusing Pinterest, I found this recipe for oatmeal-raisin breakfast cookies. They looked great, except for the part about the oatmeal. Oh man, the last time I ate oats, I was pregnant with Anneliese and threw them into my grain-free waffles because I wanted the texture. BAD IDEA. There were some huge consequences, tummy-wise… So


Here’s how to make these kid-friendly grain-free gluten-free treats. Just a few ingredients and a few minutes, and totally healthy! Great breakfast!


Shortbread is probably one of my favorite cookies. What can I say? Butter is awesome. And it is one of the specific things I’ve missed a bit since going grain-free. So when I came across this recipe, I had to try it out. It’s originally from Recipes for the Specific Carbohydrate Diet, a book I

But take a look at this ingredient list: sugar, corn syrup, semi- sweet chocolate


I’ve posted a few times about things cooked in pie crusts: Tomato pie, Tomato Pie Again, and Zucchini Quiche. And I promise there will be more. So I figured it was about time to make a pie crust tutorial. I think if my mother-in-law hadn’t shown me how it’s done, I wouldn’t be so good

So, here at my Joyful Abode, we’ve dipped cherries and clementines in chocolate. And we’ve made chocolate Ritz sandwiches. So I guess this is the third edition of the chocolate-dipping extravaganza. First, I gathered my materials: Chocolate for melting, pretzel rods, crushed Oreos, sprinkles, and marshmallows (regular and cocoa). I actually used milk chocolate, white


Mmm… does it get any better than this? Chewy cookies that are the perfect consistency for milk-dipping… Perfection! I’m not a banana-eating person. I don’t like bananas at all. I can’t even stand the smell of bananas. I used to say that when I became a teacher, I would tell all of my students’ parents
