The best Gluten Free Sugar Cookie Dough Mixes

The best Gluten Free Sugar Cookie Dough Mixes

It’s Christmas cookie time!  One of my all-time favorites for the holidays is sugar cookies with homemade buttercream frosting.  Making and decorating sugar cookie cut-outs was a major events at my parent’s house while we were growing up.  It was a several hours process that […]

Flourless Peanut Butter Cookies: 1 dough, 5 ways

Flourless Peanut Butter Cookies: 1 dough, 5 ways

I used to love making a bunch of different Christmas cookies…trying new recipes each year and making my favorites.  Then I had Jenson and that got more difficult, but I still managed quite a variety.  And then I had Marlowe, and two days before Christmas […]

Gluten-free Waffle Donuts – No oven needed!

Gluten-free Waffle Donuts – No oven needed!

You know you can make donuts in a waffles maker, right?  Wonuts, I guess?  It’s a game-changer.    OR I’d been craving donuts, but it was during one of those high 80/90 degrees stretch of weather this summer and I didn’t really want to turn […]

Homemade Magic Shell

We eat kind of a lot of ice cream up in here.  I like to jazz my ice cream up sometimes and I was sometimes tempted to buy Magic Shell (or the Reese’s version) at the grocery store, but it’s expensive and I feel like […]

PB Oat Balls, or Boobie Balls

I can’t believe I haven’t posted my recipe for Boobie Balls yet, considering I’ve sent it to everyone I know who is lactating, may be within the next year, or just likes snacks.  See, I call these Boobie Balls, but they aren’t going to make anyone lactate, […]

Gluten free Chocolate Chip Cookies

I made these cookies because I had all of the ingredients and they seemed so easy…and I love cookies. And I loved these.  Gluten free cookie recipes that don’t require a million ingredients are few and far in between, so these were very appealing.  I’m […]

Gluten-free Chocolate-Covered Oreo Cake

This cake recipe is long overdue.  Okay, it’s only been just over a month since I made it, but it’s so good, I should have posted it the next day.  I wanted to make a gluten-free cake to celebrate our friend’s birthday, so I told […]
