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

2014-04-08_GFBananaNutCake-600px

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…

Almond Pecan Butter with Cocoa and Cinnamon

2014-03-11_AlmondPecanButter-600px

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…

Sugar and Spice Cookies

Today is a special day… Why? Because today we are having a baby shower for Jamie from My Baking Addiction! I’ve “known” Jamie for quite a while… I think I probably knew her before she knew me. You see, she is a far more fabulous blogger than I am… She is the authority on all…

Cocoa Granola Clusters

Today’s recipe has been in the works for over a year… It all started when my sister-in-law brought us a package of cocoa granola clusters.  She thought they would be a great snack to have around the house when we were just adjusting to life with a newborn. She was right. We were hooked. When…

Spiced Banana Muffins (Munching with Maddie)

I may still be writing 2013 whenever I write (or type) the date, but the new year is here… I can never decide if I love or hate this time of year. I love the holidays, and I am always slightly sad that the holiday season is over.  But, in many ways, I really love…

This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of Red Star Yeast.  As always, all opinions expressed are entirely my own. Sticky buns on Christmas morning are a tradition in my family.  When I was growing up, there was a sweet woman in our church who would deliver freshly baked sticky buns each Christmas…

This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of Red Star Yeast.  As always, all opinions expressed are entirely my own. I already confessed to the fact that I have started doing some holiday baking… And, I’m back again today with another great holiday recipe from Red Star Yeast. When it comes to planning…

Gingerbread Granola with Cranberries and Pumpkin Seeds

2013-11-15_GingerbreadGranola-300px

Most years I try to hold off on getting into a holiday mood until after Thanksgiving… I usually have a very strict “no Christmas music until after Thanksgiving” policy. The Christmas season would start with going shopping with my mom on Black Friday. The house wouldn’t get decorated until later that weekend, or sometimes even…

Pumpkin Cupcakes with Maple Cream Cheese Frosting (Munching with Maddie)

2013-10-30_PumpkinCupcakesforBaby-300px

I am still having trouble accepting the fact that Maddie’s first birthday has already come and gone.  I know that every parent says that. Cliché or not, it seems like yesterday that we were bringing her home from the hospital and introducing her to Yellowdog. Now that she’s well on her way to toddlerhood, I…

Spiced Pumpkin Yeast Bread

This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of Red Star Yeast.  As always, all opinions expressed are entirely my own. Ahhh, fall…. It’s my favorite time of year! I could wax philosphical about pumpkins, changing leaves, and crisp air. But, one of the things I love most about the fall is that it’s…
