• What To Watch…

    Okay, it is finally chilly here! What does that mean? Lots of evenings hunkered down on the couch and binge watching TV… I’m not complaining! Here is our list for Fall TV! Happy viewing! (We stream everything on our Roku… if you are thinking about “cutting the cord” on cable read this post!)   New this Fall… The Affair – Final Season (Showtime- Hulu) – This show is finally answering all the questions in it’s 5th season. If you haven’t watched it at all, its worth it. It gets a little weird sometimes in the middle seasons but it’s well done! Kominsky Method (Netflix) – Second season of this just…

  • October Favorites…

    Happy Halloween! October favorites are here! I think it is because it has been so warm but it still doesn’t really feel like Fall here… I can’t believe tomorrow is November!

  • Cocktails: Habanero Harvest

    A warming, spiced and spicy cocktail, sign me up! A simple syrup made with classic Fall flavors and a habanero gives you an earthy and spicy base for this fun Fall drink. Halloween parties, Thanksgiving gathering… or just a Friday night! I went with tequila here because it is my favorite but you could also use mezcal, bourbon, vodka or even a spiced rum! One word of caution, habaneros can be HOT. I first made this allowing the habanero to soak for 15 minutes… good but very spicy. I went back and reduced the time to 5 minutes, but if you like it hot adjust accordingly! The syrup would also…

  • Baked French Toast (Gluten Free)

    This recipe all started because I felt insanely wasteful throwing away the heels of a loaf of bread (usually 4 pieces!) because no one would eat them. The end of a gluten free sandwich loaf if not like scoring the end of a French baguette after all (yes, I miss a French baguette!). So I started saving the heels in the freezer… what could I make? A baked French toast seemed perfect! Honestly, you can just buy a loaf and use that… but I am saving my heels for this recipe! This recipe is written for gluten free bread which absorbs liquid differently than traditional wheat bread, if you want…

  • Easy Banana Blueberry Muffins

    I may have gotten my kids to end their long loathing of blueberries… seriously, who hates blueberries? They are so sweet and delicious! Granted, I have a serious love of blueberry muffins that stems from childhood Sundays (thanks, Dad!). I figured if I tucked blueberries into Thad’s Banana Bread and turned them into muffins they couldn’t really complain… I was right! Perfect for a lazy Sunday and then for a rushed Monday morning! Enjoy!   Easy Banana Blueberry Muffins (Makes 12) Ingredients: 3 to 4 Very ripe bananas (lots of dark spots & amount depends on how big the banana is! ) 1 1/2 Cup gluten free flour (I like…

  • August Favorites…

    We were all over the place this month! A little bit of travel and sadly lots of fevers, infections and antibiotics! The month feels a bit like a blur and here we are back at school… where did Summer go? It was fun while it lasted! See below for what I have been loving this month and using on repeat!

  • S’mores Oreo Bark

    Are you looking for an easy no bake Summer (or any season!) sweet treat that both kids AND adults will love? Look no further. This recipe is the bomb.   S’mores Oreo Bark Ingredients: 3 1/2 Cups dark chocolate chips or chopped dark chocolate pieces 1/2 Cup white chocolate chips or chopped white chocolate pieces 1 Cup marshmallow Fluff 12 Oreos (for gluten free I like Glutino) 4 Graham Cracker Sheets (for gluten free I like Pamela’s) Instructions: Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper. Melt 1 1/2 cup of the dark chocolate chips in the a microwave safe bowl (I like to use a Pyrex measuring cup) and pour melted…

  • Strawberry Orange Breakfast Cake

    The local market here has a table tucked in the back for “last chance” fruits and vegetables. Very (VERY) ripe fruit and on their way out vegetables- perfect for baking (or soup making in the winter). The other day they had strawberries for $0.99 so I knew I needed to bake something! Cookie & Kate has a recipe for Lemony Blueberry Cake in her cookbook that I’ve been dying to try but my kids are still anti blueberry. In come the over ripe strawberries! This is a direct adaptation of her recipe just swapping out the flavors a bit. I felt like orange would go better with strawberries than lemon!…
