Healthier Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Giants

Hold on to your hats, people! I actually captured a photograph of something edible. Something delicious. Something for YOU! You guys, I have to confess that I have been mentally opposed to #pumpkiningallthethings this season. It could be because I took a beach vacation at the end of September, or maybe because the food industry […]

Lamb Meatballs (gluten-free, grain-free, paleo) with Yogurt Dip and Spiced Vegetables

This new style of eating has been an adjustment. It’s hard to wrap my head around new rules for meal-planning and eating. So much of my day is spent thinking about food, and planning out when and what we’re going to eat and making grocery lists. I know it’s not permanent (I mean, I hope! […]

Salmon and Wild Rice Cakes

You guys. I am in the midst of an intense week of toddler-watching (we are caring for two extra little cuties this week while their parents are on vacay), so I have about 10 minutes to say my peace about these salmon cakes. Let’s cut to the chase: 1. They’re a great use of leftovers. […]

Paleo Chocolate Cake with Vanilla Coconut Whip

 PaleO-M-G. It’s my first attempt at a Paleo cake. Of course, I am not committed to the Paleo Diet as a lifestyle- ya’ll know I love me some raw milk and cheese. But I do see its merits in other ways and it seems to work well for a lot of people. We had a […]

Chocolate Snickerdoodles

 I love playing hostess. One of my favorite things to do is to make a meal and enjoy it with friends and family. Usually, I end up going a little overboard as the host- I start to feel like dinner isn’t enough on its own, and then I start making drinks and desserts and bread. […]

Sweet Beet Pancakes

Oh, how the times have changed. If you told me five years ago that I’d be recommending that you eat beets in any form, I would have laughed in your face. But here I am, about to tell you why you need to make beet pancakes- and soon. This weekend, I had my first experience […]

Pie Fries

Wondering what you’re going to do with your pie dough scraps? Do you even have pie dough scraps?Sometimes I do.  Usually, I just throw them away, but if there’s a ton left over, I’ll make hand pies.  After my pie dough comparison, I had a lot of extra dough and had already made hand pies, […]

Blackberry Galette

Did I tell you my thing about pies?  Here’s my thing. I didn’t used to like pies as a kid, but I do now.  I love to eat them, but I don’t really like to make them.  (I’m more of a cake baker, remember?)  I know pie dough is easy to pull together, but the […]

Red Velvet Whoopie Pies

May is all supposed to be all about pies around here, my darlings.  I’m starting out with a bit of an unconventional pie post, though, just to keep things exciting for you.. with whoopie pies! Have you heard about whoopie pies?  They kind of had a moment in the foodie world recently, and it seemed […]

Maple Syrup Scones

I have two sweet treats to end up our month of brunching- Maple Sugar Scones today and Cinnamon Sugar Baked Doughnuts tomorrow.  Perfect brunch fare, and both inspired by Heidi at 101 Cookbooks.  She and I are totally on the same wavelength! I’ve made maple pecan scones before, which were great, but I was looking […]
