Holiday Cranberry-Apple Jam

Holiday Cranberry-Apple Jam

Confession: when I was a kid, I loved the cranberry sauce in the can. You know, the kind that’s more like a gelatinous blob that, when the can is inverted, plops out onto the plate in one fell swoop? Yup, loved it and could polish […]

Holiday-Time Sangria

Holiday-Time Sangria

As soon as the weather starts to get cool and brisk, I crave all things cozy, from the clothes I wear, to the chunky knit throw blanket on the couch, to the food and drink I like to eat and serve to my guests. I […]

Grain Free, Dairy Free Banana-Walnut Bread

Grain Free, Dairy Free Banana-Walnut Bread

Banana bread is one of my favorite comfort foods to have for breakfast during the fall and winter months. However, most banana bread recipes are laden with lots of fat and refined sugar. So, I changed that, allowing me to indulge in a moist, delicious […]

Gluten Free Banana-Oatmeal Breakfast Shake

Gluten Free Banana-Oatmeal Breakfast Shake

I’ve never been a big breakfast person. Most of the time, coffee and a few handfuls of gluten free granola or a cup of yogurt drizzled with honey does the trick. I do, however, like a nice thick shake loaded with good stuff to get […]

Red ‘Summer’ Sangria
