As you may know, I’m now a gluten-free vegetarian. So, with our already crazy mix of food issues (meat-eaters, vegetarians and food allergies), I need all the help I can get to put meals on the table. Thanks to the graciousness of gluten-free companies, the transition to gluten-free has been much more pleasant than I […]
I’m super excited that I was chosen to sample the new Power Garden Berry Veggie drink. It’s really tasty on its own (and is a pretty purple, which happens to be Bug’s favorite color). You can’t really taste the veggies, even though it’s packed full of them. It primarily tastes like cherries and strawberries. Yum! As […]
The dessert that captures our hearts is called Pulut Hitam, a Malaysian sticky black rice pudding with coconut milk. And black rice has so many nutritional benefits.

I did a little experiment today with Mom’s Gooey Chocolate Zucchini Brownies recipe. It wasn’t entirely successful, but it was a good start overall. I went with the cake version, which adds two eggs to the brownie version, and tried it out on the CAKE cycle of my bread machine. What I love about baking […]
Our kids love mangoes and they love yogurt. So, I quickly crafted some Mango Yogurt Popsicles when we got a few mangoes in our CSA box recently. The kids went bonkers for them, of course. But I think they may’ve loved the mango puree that was leftover even more (we pureed two mangoes and used […]
I set out to make No Bake Chocolate Oatmeal Drop Cookies, but ran across an amazing-sounding recipe in a new cookbook of mine: Healthy in a Hurry. It’s a recipe for Dark Chocolate Oatmeal Bars, and it’s pretty healthy right off the bat, but I used sucanat instead of brown sugar, and whole wheat white […]
When I was a kid, my favorite store-bought cookies were Keebler Soft Batch. I’m not sure if they went away altogether or they’ve just disappeared from most shelves, but I can never find them. So, when I found the recipe for Keebler Soft Batch Chocolate Chip Cookies in Insider’s Recipes Master Edition, I was elated.
I have a really cool bread machine, and I’ve been experimenting with cakes in it lately. Not because it’s any faster, but with two toddlers, it’s a little more convenient. I can toss the ingredients in and walk away. Come back two hours later and there’s cake. So, I decided to try this Yummy Scrummy […]
I’m crafting these pumpkiny beauties with my King Arthur Flour, which you can enter to win. This is my first time using cake flour or cake enhancer (don’t worry, it’s all-natural), so I’m pretty excited to see the results. I just had to make pumpkin cupcakes; not only because I’m obsessed with pumpkin but also […]
