What do you do when it’s early August and the forecast is 20 degrees cooler than yesterday? You bake. Or make chili. Or you bake and make chili. Lucky for me, this 65° overcast day landed right in the middle of International Scone Week, so it was literally no sweat to mix up a batch […]

  A few months ago I hosted a birthday brunch for a friend and the moment we were all together it was like a breath of fresh air. Most of the ladies around the table were part of the group warmly, yet reluctantly, referred to as the Elephant Ladies—a few friends who got together for […]

Pecan & Maple Balsamic Bacon

  Our youngest daughter has no problem eating the same breakfast every day. Let’s just say she gets on a certain food wave and rides it like there’s nothing else to eat. Last spring it was bagels … every morning. I would try to fix oatmeal or scrambled eggs, but all she wanted was a […]

Apple Walnut Bread [Sprouted Wheat]

Pumpkin Pie Spice Sprouted Wheat Muffins

  One way you can tell October has arrived is the abundance of spice lattes, savory soups, and comforting baked goods with plenty of pumpkin in the mix. The canned pumpkin in my pantry has been calling to me for weeks, but I waited for the weather to cool just a smidgen before firing up […]

Orange Cranberry Scones [Gluten-Free] and Half-Century Marriages

  Last weekend we attended another beautiful wedding for the daughter of our friends.

Successfully making Parmesan Sprouted Whole Wheat Bagels inspired a happy dance at my house. A bona fide, get your hands up, twist and shout, tickled pink sort of dance in the middle of the kitchen.

Butterscotch Walnut Scones [GF]: No Gluten, No Problem

This weekend I am co-hosting a bridal shower and the goal is to create a completely gluten-free menu. You see, my friend was diagnosed with celiac disease a few years ago and routinely has to either bring her own food or eat beforehand when attending gatherings. It really bums her out.
