Things That Make Me Say Yeay

Friday, November 2, 2012


My little superhero "Dash" from the Incredibles.  He thought he was so cool it was pretty cute!


And my chubby little sleeping pumpkin.  Yes, this onsie might have been a teensy weensy bit small, but since it was the last time he would ever wear it we made it work :)

Flourless chocolate chip cookies that we devoured within a matter of hours.  I got some really mixed reviews from these cookies, like some of you cookie makers HATED them so I made quite a few changes to this particular recipe (like no coconut) and these were bomb diggity...so there!  Once I get the recipe totally perfected I will post it...because I am not ready for a swarm of flourless cookie haters again.

 My Mother-In-Law's famous Halloween chili. It does not ever disappoint.


Okay, maybe a little dorky how excited I am but I made my very first wreath...that was actually good enough to hang up.  I got everything at the dollar store so I am pretty excited (you should take a drink of something every time I use the word excited) it only cost me about $4 to make.

Hope you all have a wonderful weekend!

Hey there! I just have to say thank you for all your recipes you post. You truly inspire me. I have made so made of your recipes and they turn our amazing! I couldn't do it without your help. I always feel sad when I read that people say horrible/ mean things about your recipes, I feel like it must take so much work to try it out and then share it and to have people be mean is just rude. So I wanted you to know that even though you and I have never met, you inspire me daily. I constantly refer to your blog and get excited anytime there is a new recipe. You are a beacon of light for someone who is just starting out on a gluten free dairy free diet. So THANK YOU!! I hope you know you are appreciated by so many people. Continue with the awesomeness!!!!

Al the best,

Jennifer Webb

That Halloween chili is calling my name. I have no idea what's in it, but I want to snuggle up with a blanket and a big bowl. :)

I think coconut flour is hard to measure accurately--you need so little of it for the recipe, so a little bit makes a big difference. I just got the cookbook Paleo Indulgences (which I love and you should try) and she lists the grams and cup measurements. I was making her blueberry muffins, and when I tried the cup measurement it was way more than I needed according to weight, so I took some out and made perfectly lovely muffins. Do you have a kitchen scale? If so, I would DEFINITELY appreciate weight measurements for your recipes so I can hopefully get them to turn out as deliciously for me as they did for you!
