Gluten Free Peanut Butter and Jelly Cookies

This post is sponsored by the Oregon Raspberry and Blackberry Commission.  I received a gift card and accessories as reimbursement for ingredients and time. I have one of my sewing machines back from the shop.  Hooray!  I thought by having two I would always have a backup, but Murphy’s Law prevailed.  As I mentioned last…

Friday Favorites–Freeze!

First of all, I want to make sure you noticed the topic this week is “Freeze!” and not “Frozen.”  I don’t want a bunch of disappointed Disney fans today.  That said, I’m here today to celebrate the last bit of summer with some treats from the freezer.  So many yummy things happen from just a…

Friday Favorites–Raspberries

Before I get into my favorites this week, I have to tell you about something exciting!  I’ve been a big Craft Gossip fan for years.

We’ve found gluten-free and…

Pineapple Carrot Upside-Down Cake

The recipe I’m about to share with you is not fat-free.  It isn’t gluten-free, dairy-free or egg-free.  It will not fit into a paleo diet, nor one based on avoiding canned food.  It is not vegan or sugarless.  However, it is delicious, and as long as you’re not restricted by any of the above, I…

Peppermint Vanilla Chex Mix

Just in case you’re looking for one last sweet treat to add to your holiday, I thought I’d share with you a recipe I made last week, which was inspired by recipes at A Pumpkin and a Princess and Daily Dish Recipes.  Even my son, who isn’t a big peppermint fan, loved it.  The big…
