This recipe makes cake … or cupcakes … or muffins (if you’re like me, and you like your muffins super sweet — if you aren’t, just use less stevia!). Just add whatever flavorings you’d like — I’ve done blueberries, cocoa powder, and orange zest, and they all came out delicious. They bake quickly, cool quickly, and are even good cold the next day. The day after next I can’t speak to, because none of these puppies have ever lasted that long. :-)

This bread is good.  It’s always a relief to break past that quiet but obnoxious barrier between “good, all things considering” and “good” outright.  It’s like the best qualities of the banana bread and zucchini bread we used to have, and you don’t really notice it has no sugar, no grains, no dairy. banana bread slices

When Jocelyn and I made the final version of these cookies last night, four people ate them all in ten minutes flat.  :-) cookies

I’ve also done onion rings before, but, in keeping with my quest to make food my sister can eat on her new, even more restricted diet, here they are again, paleo.  :-)

Sticky Granola BarsHey there, long time no see! We’re cooking a lot, but mostly tried-and-true stuff. That said, here’s my latest adaptation of our granola bar recipe. This one turned out pretty well, so I thought you might enjoy it too.

Hey guys!  This week instead of one involved recipe I’m posting three little ones:  Oreo cookie crumble crust, S’mores and Chex Krispie Treats.

These little chicken wraps were my answer to the question, “What do I do with all the fresh basil leaves I’m getting out of my garden?”  Because boy there’s a lot of it. SANYO DIGITAL CAMERA

So, sometimes what happens is my sister says she wants some muffins, and I look around and see what we have to make muffins with.  And sometimes what we have is quick oats, bananas, and peanut butter, and the result is pretty good off the cuff, and even better with a little refinement.  :-) OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

There aren’t a lot of cereal options when you’re eating breakfast gluten-free.  We ate Chex and Trix pretty regularly for a couple years, but once we found regular access to [amazon_link id="B003LPM9XM" target="_blank" container="" container_class="" ]Bob’s Red Mill gluten-free quick oats[/amazon_link], we got a lot more comfortable buying and using oats routinely.  Hence:  granola.
