As we’ve discussed, everything is better in mini form.
Except portions of gourmet mac n cheese. Always take the big dish of that stuff. It’s not everyday that you will come across a heaping portion of creamy, cheesy, black truffle-y, mac n cheese.

Macaroni and cheese is a great comfort food. When I eat it, I remember those days when my mom would surprise us with her baked macaroni and cheese. This wasn't just any macaroni and cheese, this was the real deal, made from scratch!
After starting the gluten-free diet, pasta dishes were a little tougher to make. Some pastas don't hold up well to being cooked in boiling water and then baked. I have found that (more…)

I love bringing along homemade muffins with me on hotel vacations. They’re fantastic for snack or breakfast, can be filled with protein and healthy fats (which I always seem to lack when I travel), and even if they get squished during my trip, they still taste (more…)

Since I have this brand new bag of blanched almond flour that Honeyville sent me burning a hole in my pantry, I decided to try one of the savory recipes from Elana Amsterdam’s book.

I’d never attempted homemade crackers before, and I was pleasantly surprised by how easy they were.
For the cheddar cheese crackers, you’ll need:
2 ½ cups blanched almond flour ¼ tsp sea salt ½ baking soda 1 cup freshly grated cheddar cheese 3 tablespoons coconut oil (original recipe calles for grapeseed oil) (more…)

(My monster fudgesicle – gluten and dairy free! Happy Summer)
I’m always up for making things at home (beef jerky, granola bars, ice tea, etc.). I know there is convenience in buying many of these things, but I rather enjoy making things at home. One it’s a challenge for me, two I know exactly what is going into my food. I love making gallons of ice tea at home because I can control the amount of sugar (or honey, or agave) that goes into my tea. It is truly amazing how much can be found in a gallon of store-bought ice tea.
We don’t buy much ice cream at the store and I don’t ever make it only because I do not have an ice cream maker. Oh, how I wish I had one. Instead I make pops. We bought two packages of Monster Popsicle Molds (I found mine at Marshall’s/T.J. Maxx) which can be purchased from (more…)

Homemade frosting is a delicious and decadent treat that is easy to make. Great frosting can enhance a store-bought goodie or finish the finest of your homemade desserts.
Both the lemon and cinnamon versions of this frosting are delicious on carrot or spice cake. For an easy dessert, make a batch of Namaste Spice Cake and frost with homemade frosting. The cake mix can be made as a spice cake or a carrot cake and is delicious as cupcakes. Another easy-to-make and delicious cake mix is from Pamela's Products. Pamela's also has a terrific frosting mix, if you don't want to make your frosting from scratch.
