Got a few ripe bananas laying around? You can make this quick easy cake! Are the oats you have on hand gluten free? Great! Then your cake will be, too.This cake is the result of a joking request from one of my oldest friends in the universe. Her sweet little baby girl will be a year old soon and she is on the hunt for a gluten free cake that is low sugar. Read the rest of this entry

Oatmeal Cinnamon Buttermilk Waffles
I’m not sure why but, this time of year I really, really need breakfast food. Need it. Hearty stuff, too. Not just the fruit and yogurt I eat the rest of the year but waffles and omelets and potatoes and oatmeal. Stuff that weighs you down and fills you up all day.So this weekend we had our second annual waffle breakfast. Very fun and an easy way to entertain. Just borrow a couple of extra waffle makers from party guests and set out some waffle batter and imaginative topping. The rest takes care of itself. Let everyone loose in the kitchen and they cook their own breakfast while you sit back and enjoy your coffee! Ahhhh. . .I love to entertain like this! Read the rest of this entry
Chocolate Loaf Cake
It’s almost Valentine’s Day so it’s time for a little chocolate. I don’t need flowers or anything. . just chocolate. (And occasionally some jewelry.)
This is my favorite chocolate cake recipe. It’s not fancy or fussy. It doesn’t even have icing. But it’s rich and dense and SUPER moist. I can’t believe I’ve never shared it before. Read the rest of this entry
Brown Sugar Coconut Rice Pudding
Once in a while I like a bowl of rice pudding. It’s not a dessert that appeals to me very often but from time to time, for some unknown reason, I crave some. I think it’s a throw back gene from my dad, who adores rice pudding. (Sans raisin, which are the devils fruit!)Or I might have been craving this because it is sub-zero here and I need cozy desserts. Or it might have been that I had a lot of sticky rice in the pantry and thought this was a great way to use some. Read the rest of this entry
Cranberry Orange Bread
Merry (belated) Christmas! I intended to share this with you before the holiday. It would have made a good breakfast treat for Christmas morning. Alas, I had no electricity.
Attack of the ice 2013 happened and plans went out the window as everyone scrambled to stay warm and safe.
