Gluten Free Banana Bread (Dairy Free and Vegan)

Super easy and super tasty Gluten Free Banana Bread. Dairy Free and Vegan, too! |

When I was little, my mom used to make sourdough banana bread. It took a while because of the sourdough starter. I think usually a day or two just for that. And of course, since I knew she was going to make it a day or two before it actually came out of the oven, it was torture.

I mean, seriously!? For a kid, that is an eternity!

And then, once it was made, it was gobbled up in about 30 seconds. Two days of torture for 30 seconds of bliss. [click to continue…]

Gluten Free Flour Mix Recipe

Oh-so-easy to make-ahead and use anytime gluten free all-purpose flour mix. |

Baked goods are awesome! Don’tcha think?

While I miss being able to stop in ANY bakery and grab something that looks yummy, I am having a lot of fun lately coming up with some of my own stuff. I have this long list of different flavor combinations to try that I am so excited about. Squeeeee! (Do people do that anymore or is it sooooooooooo 2013? I’m behind.)

But the issue I was having with my long list of flavor combos is that every recipe ended with…wait for it…


That is all I know how to make as far as baked gluten free stuff. Seriously!? Muffins!

Now, muffins are all tasty and stuff. And I will not stop making them any time soon. It would just be nice to have a larger repertoire of gluten free baked good options.

Easy and tasty Apple Jam with Cinnamon (Pectin Free) |

Yep! Another apple post. I know soooooooooooooooooooooooo many people are all about the pumpkin this time of year. And pumpkin is ok. Not knockin’ it. But I am all about the apple.

I LOVE apples! It’s like the first “thing” ever. Yeah, it was all sin and stuff. But it was still there.

And it has awesome sayings.

  • An apple a day keeps the doctor away. (LM was chanting that for a couple of weeks. School indoctrination!)
  • Apple of your eye.
  • The Big Apple.
  • How do you like them apples?
  • Upsetting the apple cart.

People LOVE apples! It’s not just me. Right? [click to continue…]

Potato Soup Recipe – Potato Bacon Corn Chowder (Gluten Free, Dairy Free)


Potato Soup - Potato Bacon Corn Chowder is a hearty, easy-to-make soup for chilly fall and winter days. |

So, a few weeks ago, some friends of ours had twins. The most beautiful children you will ever see, except for mine, of course. Now, they already had two kids, so it is a super lot for them to deal with. Awesome-ness! But a lot.

Being the amazing friends that we are, a group of us started a meal train for them and supplied them with dinners a few nights a week when they didn’t have family in for help. The first meal that was taken by amazing friend number one was a potato soup. I stopped by the next day to help out and took one look at that potato soup and said, “I have got to make that!”

It looked so yummy. Hearty and delicious! [click to continue…]

When I started telling my friends about how we go to the u-pick apple orchard every September here (all two years so far), I got lots of questions.

“What kind of apples do they have?”

“When do you go?”

“When are you going?”

“Do they have anything else?”

“How much do you pick?” [click to continue…]
