Lemon Curd

Lemons are my go to fruit this year. I’ve been using them in everything! I love their bright notes, and they seem to help ease my Spring Fever! Lately, I’ve been baking up a storm, and made a version of cupcakes that seemed more like muffins to me…I am tired of cream cheese frosting and […]

Flour-less Chocolate Cake

I have been wanting something chocolatey…not just anything. Something truffle-like, rich, fudgey, and I can’t figure out what I want!!! HOLD the PRESSES!! I remembered this cake I had in Atlanta a few years back during the Easter season. It was from this Kosher deli- I want THAT!!! Hmm….Google Jewish chocolate cake- no leavening…BINGO! The […]

Pancakes for Stephanie

One of Baby Girl’s college friends can’t have gluten, and one thing I have noticed about that bunch is that brunch is common place. I have been looking for and experimenting with gluten free recipes for classic southern faire- this comes pretty close. It reminds me of a whole wheat flap jack. If you are […]

THM/Gluten Free Cheddar Bay Style Biscuits

My favorite thing to eat for breakfast are biscuits; it’s a southern thang. I especially love bacon gravy…and so does my butt. This can be a problem. Lately, I have been missing some of my comfort foods, and Baby Girl wanted garlic cheddar biscuits. CHALLENGE!!!! Twenty experiments later… I have finally found the proper texture […]

THM Caramel Sauce or Creamy Pralines

Hmmmm…that is weird. Which is it? Well the ingredients are the same up until a certain point, so like most homesteaders, Imma kill two birds at the same time. Yes, I know that’s not how the saying goes, but I live in Louisiana- enough said right? Anywho… at the end of this sentence, stop reading […]

THM Peanut Butter Cookies

Sugar-free? Gluten Free? GROSS!!!!! Well, at least that was my opinion until I tried baking with Xylitol. I have been eating in a new manner- trying to stick to the THM eating plan. It’s actually working out quite nicely, but occasionally, I wanna sweet treat! Today, I deserved cookies! Don’t try and eat these hot-they […]

Fideo (Fee-day-oh)

Every recipe has a story; this recipe is how I survived college on the cheap. The first time I attended college (yes- I have been there done that more than once), I was in Southern California. A friend introduced me to fideo and I basically lived on it for years. Mainly because it was SUPER […]

Cinnamon Roll Syrup

Cinnamon rolls or pancakes? No more need to compromise- you can have both with this great syrup. Charaty is our recipe of the day aficionado! She said, “This syrup will separate when it’s chilled (I’ve even tried sending it through the blender before serving to see if it helps with the separation at chilling and it […]
