Mini Dutch Baby Pancakes- GF, DF

I have a sort of love affair with breakfast and brunch... I mean, really- what other meal can be so versatile? We can go sweet -OR- savory... we can load our dish with fruit -OR- veggies... we can add bacon, sausage, ham, cheese, eggs, steak... omelettes, pancakes, chilaquiles with fresh salsa verde and a fried… Continue reading Mini Dutch Baby Pancakes- GF, DF

Strawberry Apple Crumble Bars – GF

In case you haven't noticed yet, I am pretty much always looking for an excuse to get in the kitchen and bake. So when one of my absolute favorite food bloggers offers up a gluten-free recipe, you better believe that I took that as a personal invitation to get my ass in the kitchen and… Continue reading Strawberry Apple Crumble Bars – GF

Chocolate Cranberry Pecan Banana Bread Bars – GF, DF

You guys, I don't watch a lot of TV. I don't have the time, and, by and large, most of what is on anymore is just junk. Stop watching everyone else live their lives on reality TV and YouTube and get your ass out the door and go live yours. However... there is one show… Continue reading Chocolate Cranberry Pecan Banana Bread Bars – GF, DF

Loaded Carne Asada Sweet Potato Fries – GF, DF

When I first found out I could no longer eat gluten, it sorta-kinda felt like my world was ending. I know that is melodramatic... I really, really do. But it is the truth. After the news settled and I began to wrap my mind around all of the things I loved to eat and still… Continue reading Loaded Carne Asada Sweet Potato Fries – GF, DF

Lemon Raspberry Cheesecake Parfaits… & a Cooking Class – GF

Every once in awhile, amazing opportunities fall upon us completely and totally unexpectedly. Every once in awhile, others see potential and talent in you that you fail to see in yourself. Every once in awhile, if you open your mind and take a big step out of your comfort zone, wonderful things will happen.

Slow Cooker Chicken Curry – GF & DF

I was a late bloomer when it came to having full appreciation for ethnic foods. Really, really late. I spent the first 25-ish years of my life enjoying a very mundane and unadventurous diet. I didn't realize it at the time, of course, but as I began to explore new cuisines and venture into new… Continue reading Slow Cooker Chicken Curry – GF & DF

Chocolate Peanut Butter No-Bake Cookies – GF & DF

I know a lot of people turn their nose up at No-Bake Cookies, listing how they're simple and not a product of "real baking," but not this girl. This girl loves any snack or dessert that involves chocolate, peanut butter, and shredded coconut coming together to form a delicious balance of sweet and salty perfection… Continue reading Chocolate Peanut Butter No-Bake Cookies – GF & DF

Chili Lime Chicken Burrito Bowls – GF, DF

Both my husband and I enjoy the time we spend in the kitchen cooking for our family, and I am thankful that the kids are taking notice and becoming interested in helping and getting creative in their own ways. Our youngest, Brooklyn, brought home a flyer from school announcing a healthy cooking competition and wanted… Continue reading Chili Lime Chicken Burrito Bowls – GF, DF

Double Chocolate Banana Cake

You guys, the pictures just can't all be winners... I just feel like I have to lead this post with that advisory statement. Because I feel it is *really* important you know that these pictures DO NOT do this Double Chocolate Banana Cake any justice. Okay, now that that is out of the way, let's… Continue reading Double Chocolate Banana Cake

Classic Chocolate Chip Cookies

I hope that you all enjoyed a wonderful holiday season with family and friends. I have been a little MIA myself over the past couple weeks doing the same (eating too much and drinking a tad more wine than is probably recommended...ha!), but I am back in the game and ready to share some seriously… Continue reading Classic Chocolate Chip Cookies
