Spiced Pumpkin Muffins

Fall is here! My favorite time of year. At school we have a Starbucks on each campus I see everyone enjoying the pumpkin muffins, pumpkin coffees etc. and it drives me crazy that I can just run in and grab one of those delicious looking muffins with the cream cheese on them…you know the ones…

Three Year Blogiversary

(I know the picture above doesn’t have to do with food but daisies are my favorite flowers of all time)  This month I’ll be celebrating my three-year blogiversary – June 27th to be exact. I have been trying to think about a great way to celebrate it and I think I’ve finally figured it out. …

Chicken Parmesan

One of my favorite dishes when I was younger was Chicken Parmesan. I love the crunch chicken but yet still tender and juicy inside with some bubbly mozzarella cheese on the top.  It is a very simple dish, however I never make it.  I don’t know if it was because I feared how it would actually come…

Mozzarella Sticks

  One of my favorite snack foods when growing up was mozzarella sticks.  I grew up in fairly small town, however it had three or four pizza places (mostly run by Greeks instead of Italians) and none of the pizza was ever spectacular or out of this world but the mozzarella sticks were always good…

M&M Cookies

Last night we had our first frost of the season! Took the dog out this morning and the cars were all covered and the ground was nice and crunchy – today was a baking day for sure.  In my last post I wrote about living the gluten-free life not only creatively but frugally as well.…

Chili – GF/OF

First off, I am very sorry for taking a picture with my cell phone.  I completely forgot to take a photo last night so when we had some for lunch today, I had to take a quick pic.  Guess I was a bit hungry and excited last night. I have never made chili – well that isn’t…

Apple Crisp (Take Two)

Apple Crisp – ready to be baked Almost two years ago now I posted about my love of the Fall and apple crisp and today I would like to revisit that post.  Fall is almost here and I couldn’t be more excited.  We even bought our first pumpkins of the season the other day…they may…

Lemon Squares

Last weekend I went to a farm stand in Moss Landing and bought tons of awesome fruits and veggies. I also picked up some huge Meyer Lemons. I have been pretty much bed ridden this past week due to my back and was trying to think of a way to use these before they went…

Happy Birthday Lisa

Last night we went out to celebrate Lisa’s 30th birthday at the Swiss Bistro in Carmel.  After dinner we headed back to my place for some cake and ice cream.I used the Bob’s Red Mill Chocolate Cake Mix (which by the way is wicked good!!) with a little home made cream cheese frosting colored purple,…

Apple Crisp

I LOVE the Fall and everything about it: The Weather. The colors of leaves. The smell in the air. Sweaters. Hot apple cider. Hearing the leaves crunch under my feet as I walk. Apple picking. Pumpkins. Soup and lots of it. Most of all is Apple Crisp! I can’t live with out that come this…

BREAD

I don’t have any of my own pictures to post yet but this weekend I made my first loaf of gluten free bread. And the best part…its not as bad as it sounds, actually its really tasty. I bought a bag of bread mix from Bob’s Red Mill and thought I would give it a…
