Friday Favorites–Halloween Treats

Once the decorations are put up, the costumes are ready to go and it’s the Friday before Halloween, what’s left to think about?  The food!  Sure, there’s all the trick-or-treat candy about to overtake your kids’ common sense, but everybody has to eat real food too.  Right?  I heard someone refer to the next few…

Friday Favorites–Going Bananas

Today’s topic started with my daughter asking me to make her gluten-free zucchini bread.  No, it doesn’t make a bit of sense, but this is where the ride landed.  “Going Bananas” has never felt like a more appropriate title. It doesn’t get much easier than these Two Ingredient Banana Chocolate Chip Ice Cream Bites from…

Friday Favorites–Raspberry Season

There are a few signs that summer has officially arrived.  Bright sunshine, obviously.  Kids running around everywhere, free from the confines of school.  Mosquitos.  Longer days.  Shorter pants.  One of my favorites?  Raspberries.  We have one vine, but it isn’t exactly thriving, so fortunately I live in berry country and can pick some up just…

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…
