2014-04-16_ChickenPineappleSkewers-600px

This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of Organic Choice for SocialSpark. All opinions are 100% mine. Despite the fact that we saw a few snowflakes again this week, spring is finally here. We had a few gorgeous days in the 70s over the weekend, and I spent just about every moment…

Banana Nut Snack Cake (Gluten-Free and Dairy-Free)

I really enjoy each of the seasons as it comes. I’m always ready for the brisk air and cool nights in the fall. I get excited about the first snowflakes every winter. And, when spring finally rolls around, I embrace it. I love cleaning out the flower beds and planning the garden for the coming…

Lemon Basil Hummus

Hummus is one of those foods that I often overlook. At least, I used to. Lately, I find myself cooking a big batch of garbanzo beans every other week so that I have plenty of them on hand to make fresh, homemade hummus. Since I ditched sweets, it’s one of my new go-to snacks. I…

Beyond the Detox… and Apple Mango Spinach Smoothies

2014-03-26_SpinachAppleMangoSmoothie-600px

Last week, I shared a little bit about my “detox” diet experience a few weeks ago. I went 10 days without any gluten, dairy, sugar, or caffeine. And, I even lived to tell about it! Sure, I joke about how tough it was, and I had my days, but it really wasn’t all that bad….

Savory Gluten-Free Flatbread

This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of Red Star Yeast.  As always, all opinions expressed are entirely my own. I’ve recently fallen in love with gluten-free baking. Yup, it’s true! As someone who has baked (with wheat) for what seems like forever, I was pretty skeptical about gluten-free baking at first. But,…

So You Want To Start a Detox Diet? (WFMW)

So, you’ve been thinking about doing a detox diet? I can relate. If you’re a regular reader, you know that I finished up a 10 day detox diet just a few weeks ago. I’ve been writing this post in my head, over and over again, ever since. I really want to share the experience with…

Almond Pecan Butter with Cocoa and Cinnamon

It’s a funny thing sugar. I think it is probably one of the most loved and most hated foods that we eat. One look on Pinterest and you will find more sweet and decadent treats than you could ever possible eat. (A few of them may have even come from this site.) But, you’ll also…

Blueberry Apple Crumble (Gluten-Free, Dairy-Free, Sugar-Free)

If you follow me on Instagram, or if we’re friends on Facebook, you’ve probably noticed something different about me.  I’ve gone gluten-free, dairy-free, and sugar-free! It’s (probably) not a permanent change, but I do plan to permanently change the way I eat. It’s kind of a long story, but stick with me on this one……

Dreaming of Gardening…

This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of Organic Choice for SocialSpark. All opinions are 100% mine. We’ve reached the time of the year when cabin fever has set in… Can you relate? It’s been a cold and snowy winter. We’ve had a few glorious days of warmer weather, but the short…

Honey Wheat Bagels

2014-02-25_HoneyWheatBagels-600px-2

We’ve had an unusual number of chilly, snowy days this winter.  In the last few years, I have often designated snowy days as my baking days in the kitchen. Preheating the oven just seems to take the chill out of the air… And, a few freshly baked treats don’t hurt either. While I don’t quite…
