I’ve shared these cookies, over the years, to friends and casually on my Facebook page as I’ve made them for my children (ahem, myself too). And every single time I get comments or messages that say something like this, ” we couldn’t stop eating them…I CAN’T believe that these are made from chickpeas…we ate the […]
this is a family favorite of mine. i love it for many reasons. the flavor is just wow! see ya later flour quiche crust. something about the rich flavor of the sweet potato crust is a perfect compliment to the dish as a whole. and use the recipe as a guide, but fill the egg […]
oh my goodness. these are like those little pecan pumpkin tarts. only not with all the weird corn syrup that will make you excited for 5 minutes and leave you wanting to nap soon there after. imagine making these and having your family walk in and say, “mmmm that smells good!” and ha! you’re not […]
until i was about 20 years old, my family had a cottage on a river near my hometown. so summers meant crabbing and fishing.
Some of my favorite things during the Spring time in the South are: walking barefoot outside, the choir of bugs at night, rainy afternoons, fresh produce and eating outside.

And with all of the local farmers and artists, it was even more magical. Spring, in our little Southern town, means that Azaleas decorate most […]
you know what’s good about making your own ice cream? everything, that’s what. it’s usually cheaper, tastier, and prettier. and for goodness’ sakes, you can actually SEE what is in the thing that you’re about to ingest. or better yet, what your children are about to ingest. if you are what you eat, then lately […]
i’ve been trying to come up with a protein bar that my whole family will eat. mainly one that won’t fall apart and that doesn’t require some sort of syrup to hold it together. i like the Kind bars, but they have more sugar than i prefer. nothing i’ve used as a binder has held […]
this time of year is so nostalgic for me. growing up, my parents fed us so well. i remember being sick of eating steak and vegetables. ha! before dinner, if we were hungry, my mom would say, “you can eat your salad first if you’re hungry.” because most of our meals were coupled with a […]
these muffins are probably the best banana bread/muffins i’ve eaten. hands down. gluten or gluten-free diet, these are my favorites.
