Lemon Basil Hummus

2014-03-31_LemonBasilHummus-600px

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…

Savory Gluten-Free Flatbread

2014-03-24_GlutenFreeFlatbread-600px

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,…

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…

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…

Spiced Banana Muffins (Munching with Maddie)

2014-01-06_SpicedBananaMuffins-300px

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…

Molasses Banana Biscuits (Munching with Maddie… And Yellowdog!)

2013-12-09_MolassesBananaDogTreats-6

It’s been such a busy few weeks… I am feeling the crunch of a late Thanksgiving and fewer days between Thanksgiving and Christmas. Even though we’ve pulled back on gift giving and spending over the past few years, I feel as though the hype of the Christmas season continually makes it all crazier and more…

Octoberfest Caramel Sauce

October is here! I wait all year for October… And it’s not just because my birthday is in October (though, that helps). Maddie’s birthday is in October, too. We’re cool like that. October means crunchy leaves, hot apple cider, and pumpkins. It also means it’s officially time for some serious fall baking. The weather is getting…

Barbeque Chicken Pizza with Corn and Cilantro

2013-08-27_BBQChickenPizzawCorn-300px

I haven’t been posting a lot of recipes lately. You may have noticed. While I could easily blame our busy schedule (and, this summer has been a busy one!) or the fact that Madison is now mobile and I spend most of the day chasing her around the house (also true), I don’t think it…

Ginger Mint Syrup

2013-07-11_GingerMintSyrup-300px

I know gin and tonics are all the rage right now… Seriously, all the cool kids are doing it. And, I want to like them. But, I’m really just not into gin. Or tonic. Sadly, I don’t think I’ll be sitting at the popular table in the cafeteria any time soon… Though, I’m hoping I…

Whole Wheat Blue Cheese Crackers

2013-06-28_BlueCheeseCrackers-300px

When it comes to snack foods, my hubby is a chips guy. He loves his kettle cooked chips in a variety of flavors.  While I enjoy chips (though, not flavored ones that leave my fingers all messy… yuck!), I am more of a crackers girl. Specifically, I really love cheese crackers. Strangely enough, with all of…
