banana cookies w/ cinnamon glaze

COOKIES!!! I am so excited to be sharing these cookies with you! let’s be honest, everyone needs a cookie (and a stiff drink) after the whirlwind that is thanksgiving. I don’t have the drinks, but I can provide the cookies… cookies with bananas! you know, to help with stuffing detox and getting back into normal…

sugarless chocolate cupcakes (grain/gluten/dairy/sugar free)

I loooove my some cupcakes.  I also looooove me some sugar. Sadly, my body doesn’t love sugar as much as my taste buds do.  This is the only reason I have been doing my best to eat less sugar.  Less maple syrup, less honey, less coconut sugar, less of all the good stuff. I about cried…

blueberry muffins (grain/gluten/dairy free, paleo)

Soooo…. I’ve never really been a huge fan of blueberries. They’re just not sweet enough for this girl.  Unless of course they’re baked with tons of sugar and stuffed into a muffin.  Then I am so down with blueberries.  Same with rhubarb and raspberries.  Add a bit (or a lot) of sugar to them and I’ll…

Soft Chocolate Chocolate Chunk Cookies (Grain/Gluten/Dairy Free)

Oh my. Remember that whole I-can’t-live-without-sugar thing I mentioned? Ya, well these happened because of it. I guess they aren’t too bad on the sugar scale.

Whole30 Stuff

We still went on a walk though.  ‘Cause we’re crazy and like to bring ourselves misery. That’s why CJ things I’m doing the Whole30 challenge this month. Yep, August first I joined in….

Weekend Stuff

1. This girl cracks me up.  Wish I could pull off her dance moves. 2. This happened not too long ago, and honestly I’d be ok if it happened every single day. Blueberry Lemon Custard Gluten Free Pie w/ coconut vanilla ice cream.  Yessss please. 3. I’ve wasted about 13.7 hours these past two days longing…

Cantaloupe Popsicles (aka My Ice Cream Fix)

Mmm, summer. I don’t know about you, but for me summer=ice cream.  Well, winter also equals ice cream, so I guess summer just equals air conditioning and a sun burnt boyfriend. Basically, whatever the season I want ice cream. This is weird because I wasn’t always an ice cream girl.  Sure I liked it, but…
