Gluten-free Spice Muffins w/Dark Chocolate Streusel

Let's start with this...I am not gluten-free. I have never been gluten-free.  I don't intend to become gluten-free. I honestly didn't know much about gluten-free and was afraid to post about it for fear that I would claim some recipe was gluten-free when it was not. But really, it's not that scary. And from the sounds of it, from the answers/responses I received on my Facebook page, many of you would appreciate and like to see some gluten-free recipes here on my blog-- either for yourself or your family members ...

Fudgesicles, Quinoa "Mac", Muffins & Pasta Salad...oh my!

Things are pretty busy right now, as I'm sure most of you can relate to -- with the end of summer and start to the back-to-school chaos. What makes my back-to-school chaos particularly chaotic, is that I WORK at a school... so I have to go back 2 weeks earlier than most, scramble for additional childcare, and oh, publish an e-cookbook somewhere in the middle of all that chaos :) It's all getting done, slowly but surely. ...

Ikea Trip + Homemade {Vanilla Raspberry Creamsicles}

It all started with our recent "day trip" to Ikea. I call it that because it really takes almost an entire day to see and experience all Ikea has to offer! If you've never been to one... let me just tell you, it's like being on another planet. It's massive. By the time you're done, you've probably walked a good 2 miles. There's so much to look at it, it really is overwhelming. They have a play area, a full restaurant, and more stuff to buy than

Joining My Local CSA + {Peach Cobbler w/Quinoa}

Many of you who have followed my blog for a long time know that I recently moved to the mountains. It's a bit remote... and by "remote" I mean: 25 min to the grocery store, 25 min to school, 25 min to church --- ok, 25 min to get ANYWHERE!!!  But the closest CSA (community supported agriculture) pick-up used to be over an hour away. ...

Chickpea Burger Giveaway & Greek Mashed Cauliflower

Can I just start out with the word YUMMOLA?!?! This is exactly how I felt about this entire meal.  Awhile back, I was contacted by MorningStar Farms to see if I'd be interested in trying/reviewing their new Mediterranean Chickpea Burgers. With 70% less fat than regular ground beef and containing less than 2% soy protein, I immediately said YES, PLEASE!  I am a huge fan of hummus and of burgers, so this felt like the perfect combination :)  It took me awhile to find it at the store, but finally my eyes were drawn to this packaging: ...

Long Weekend + {Salmon Quesadillas}

I hope you all had a fabulous long weekend! Mine was filled with hours upon hours of landscaping, a multitude of snuggles (Babycakes was sick with an ear infection AND strep), shopping at the local hardware stores, grilling for the first time of the season and the first time at the new house, and family...which was perfect!  As you may remember, last week I was away from my precious Babycakes, in Arizona where I ate a smorgasbord of yummy food including a fancy salmon quesadilla appetizer served at a wine bar -- ...

Overwhelmed + {Mexican Quinoa Cornbread}

Let's just get this out there right off the bat: I am overwhelmed. I recently cut back on blogging... and honestly, since doing so, I don't even know where to start or what story (or part thereof) that I want to tell.  It was the right choice for me. It is better for my family...for now. We have been dealing with a lot. Babycakes' behavior has been noticeably better and we have enjoyed sweeter moments together, as she's had to compete less for my attention.  And we've had more time to focus on others. And send handwritten notes. ... Read more » about Overwhelmed + {Mexican Quinoa Cornbread}
