East Coast Carrot Cake

In my last post I talked about cookbooks, and how you can always tell which page is the most used by the stains. This recipe has stains and marks all over the page, for two reasons. One, because it is an amazingly moist and delicious cake, the other because it is an old family recipe….

So, today’s subject is soup!! **This post contains affiliate links, and as an Amazon Associate, I earn from…

Banana Chocolate Chip Muffins

We have made a lot of muffins in my kitchen; even the Easy Add-In Anything Muffins that I posted a few weeks ago. For gluten-free muffins, there is not a whole lot good about them. They get dry, they are heavy and sometimes tasteless. We’ve made banana muffins before, and they were nothing special, but…

The Heart of the Home – My Gluten-Free Pantry

Good Morning! The first strongest memory I have of the kitchen is the giant farmhouse kitchen. We rented a house on a cow farm when I was five-years-old. The kitchen was unique, as it had the sink in a closet type room off the kitchen, and then everything else was combined as kitchen and dining….

Cranberry Orange Bread

The baking of gluten-free bead can be a challenge. We have discovered that if we bake bread in a heavier pan dish, it doesn’t bake in the middle. It always tends to be raw or way undercooked. So, whenever we bake bread, we tend to use either a disposal pan or a thinner baking pan….

Mozzarella Stuffed Meatloaf

Some people love to make complicated recipes, ones that take an ounce of the most expensive spice and then you never use it again.

Baking anything gluten-free is difficult. It either tastes really bad or doesn’t bake right. I judge any gluten-free product that I use on how “real” it tastes. Does this taste like regular food, or does it taste gluten-free?I love finding products that actually give you a taste of normalcy. When you give up real food…

Hot and Spicy Cabbage Soup

This soup can also be called by another name; it should be called ‘don’t judge too quickly soup.’ When my mom first made this soup, I had my doubts. With the added hot sausage, it gave it an added kick. This was an all-veggie soup, and it had cabbage in it. But I have to…
