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…

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

2014-03-04_BlueberryAppleCrumble-600px

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……

Honey Wheat Bagels

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)

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!)

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…

Pumpkin Oatmeal Bars with Chocolate Chips

Pumpkin season is officially here. Can I get an amen? It has taken me a while to get around to the pumpkin baking this year… Normally I am chomping at the bit, finding reasons to bake pumpkin bread in July.  This year, though, I held off until October. I’m not sure what to attribute my…

Whole Wheat Blue Cheese Crackers

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…

Mediterranean Quinoa Salad

2013-06-10_MediterraneanQuinoaSalad-250px

I’ve recently started to really appreciate whole grains, especially quinoa. Sure, I’ve always been a fan of baking with whole wheat flour, and that’s all fine and great. But, I’m talking about cooking and eating whole grains that aren’t incorporated into baked goods. It all started when I discovered salads made with whole grains like…

Trail Mix Cookie Bars

2013-06-03_TrailmixBars-250px

I’ve been making a lot more cookie bars lately… And brownies. It turns out that baking cookies with an infant isn’t quite as easy as I once thought. Previously I thought that cookies were a given in the kitchen… How hard is it to bake cookies? You just slap some dough on a sheet pan…

Spiced Plum Jam Bars

Can you believe that I have never made jam bars before? With all of the canning I do, you would think that they’d be a regular in my kitchen, but I only just recently decided to give them a try. And, let me tell you… I am glad that I did! Over the summer, we…
