Pumpkin Bread

 I’ve actually got the amazing smell of pumpkin bread gracing the house as I type this recipe. Other than the seasonal pumpkin, I’ve always got these ingredients on hand-so that makes whipping up this recipe super easy. Although we are quickly approaching Thanksgiving, and most are already onto the warm and delicious flavors of Christmas…I’m…

Butternut Squash Risotto

Are you ready for some fall recipes? I honestly make this risotto all year long but there is something special about making it during the cooler days. Risotto has a few more steps than just a basic rice, but it’s oh so worth it. The layers of flavor are so worth the additional time needed….

Soft-Baked Almond Flour Cookies

Summer days are for loosing track of the time and not really knowing what day of the week it is. I was just telling my husband the other day how I feel like I’m in a bubble this summer and it’s quite incredible. Mommy-hood is nothing like I expected it to be and I feel…

Apple Pear and Blueberry Crisp

I think it comes as no surprise my love for baking, but I have really been enjoying it lately. I don’t know if it’s my nesting kicking in while I wait for this baby to arrive—but I loved making this crisp! The recipe is so simple and satisfying to make! Crisp seem to be most…

Carrot Bread

Hi friends! We are almost done with the longest, least favorite, month of the year…MARCH! I always dread this month because its the pit of the winter when all we want to do is pull out our spring clothes and dance in the sun. This year, I really can’t complain about this month. We were…

Hot Cocoa and Gingerbread Cookies

There is just four days until Christmas and I can honestly say I am more at ease and organized than ever before. I have really been trying to savor moments, which means taking time for myself, taking time for my family, and simplifying my life as much as possible. All of this is mostly done…

Brownies

I’ve been really enjoying exploring the world of gf, df, sf baking. I cannot say every recipe has been a keeper but what I’m posting here…certainly IS! I have been buying boxed gf brownies because I was in need of a quick fix. I was getting WAY too much sugar than I was wanting in…

Smoked Chipotle Nachos

I tend to work with the same repertoire of ingredients so this recipe is was FUN and creative. I found this salsa and it totally inspired me. I feel like a good chef (I’m not actual referring to myself now;) lets ingredients shape a recipe. You have to let what speaks to you…speak to you! So this salsa was…

Granola

Nothing quite makes my house smell as wonderful as granola baking in the oven. I dare you to challenge me to something else that smells THIS amazing! It cannot be done.  Our unseasonably warm winter has become more itself these past few days bringing us cold, snow, rain, and gray skies. I get a sense…

Sweet Potato Stuffing

In the beautiful midst of the holiday season, I’m happily enjoying my third batch of this sweet potato stuffing. Going gluten free, many complain they miss the ‘hearty’ or ‘filling’ aspect of gluten products. This stuffing has both hearty and filling and that’s just in the potatoes…never mind the savory sausage or sweet onion that…
