Red Currant and Rosemary Olive Oil Scones

The kids are back in school and our life has returned to it’s usual chaotic schedule. Throw my husband into the mix and we have pure pandemonium in our house. Luckily, we live in near paradise. There’s nothing like relaxing in Mission Bay, toes in the sand, with kayaks and paddle boards on hand to help you […]

Olive Oil Beet Bread with Walnuts {Giveaway}

A few weeks ago was my sister-in-law’s birthday. The family got together and I was asked to make the cake – of course! My sister-in-law requested a non-chocolate cake, so I started to look for ideas. I immediately started to think about what fruits were in season for my cake inspiration. There were berries, oranges […]

Skinny Whole Wheat Chocolate Almond Banana Bread

I have always loved banana bread. When I was a student at the University of Arizona, every morning I would cut through the cafeteria and grab a slice to eat on my way to my morning class. Any baked goods with my morning tea is the right way to start the day, in my book. […]

Adventures with Long Mulberries and a Banana Bread

I spent the weekend pulling my hair out because The Professor, my 12-year-old son who is too good for homework, had four weeks to complete a 3-book project, but he had barely made a dent in it. My boy can’t be persuaded by rewards, bribes or punishment. I suppose that would be a good trait […]

Leftover Cranberry Sauce Scones

  My kids aren’t the only ones this week unhappy that school started. The homework fights are back and everyone is dragging in the morning, not wanting to do what must be done or go where they must go. “The good news,” I told my kids, “is that Christmas break is only 4 weeks away!” […]

Unprocessed and Gluten-Free Pumpkin Bread by

Unprocessed and Gluten-Free Pumpkin Bread

I have a small confession to make. My first week of going completely unprocessed hasn’t been too successful. It was a super busy week, with a thousand activities to juggle. Stress makes me eat. Might be why I have 15 extra pounds I need to shed. No excuses though. It’s typical for moms, especially me, […]

Back-To-School Eats: Whole Wheat Mango Bread with Pecans

We are a T-minus 9 days and counting until school starts in our house. E-gads! What happened to summer? I feel like we didn’t swim enough, we didn’t go to the beach enough, we certainly didn’t go on our annual road trip, and I certainly didn’t get much cooking and blogging accomplished! Despite all of […]

Whole Wheat Orange Scones with Chia Seeds

Keeping up with the trends in the foodie world can be like keeping up with the latest fashion. Things come and go just as quickly. We had the cake ball phenomenon, then everywhere you looked you found Nutella recipes. It’s the same on the healthy-eating side, too. Going gluten-free became the thing-to-do, even if you […]

A Refreshing Lemon Tea Bread

A Refreshing Lemon Tea Bread

It seems that this world is broken into two sides: You are either a coffee person or tea. I love the smell of coffee and I love the hint of coffee in my brownies or cakes. But I HATE the taste of a cup of coffee. GASP! Every morning I sit down and enjoy my […]
