Creamy Almond Brown Rice Pudding

Creamy Almond Brown Rice Pudding

It’s been a while since I talked about our pudding obsession. Our obsession hasn’t gone anywhere, but I don’t want to bombard and overwhelm you with pudding, of all things. That would just be weird....

Lemon-Vanilla Almond Cake {Paleo}

Lemon-Vanilla Almond Cake {Paleo}

When I was younger, I hated any and all lemon-flavored desserts with a passion. Lemon bars, lemon meltaway cookies, and even lemon meringue pie were all on my list. (But oddly enough, I was a big fan of super sour lemon-flavored WarHeads candy – does anyone else remember those?

Apple-Almond Streusel Muffins 1

Have I ever told you about my mom’s apple pie? It’s killer. She always makes it deep-dish style (like Chicago pizza). Sometimes she’ll make it with a double crust and sometimes she’ll make it with what she calls a “French crumble topping”, and her thick apple layer is perfectly spiced and sweetened.

Nutty Biscotti {7 Days of Festive Holiday Treats}

Where you live, does it snow for Christmas? It used to snow here religiously every year. (Actually, I remember being a kid and trick-or-treating in the snow on Halloween some years!) Alas, we haven’t been guaranteed a white Christmas for the past four years or so. Which is a crying shame, really…there’s just something about a blanket of white that makes Christmas feel so special....

Toasted Coconut-Almond Biscotti {Giveaway!}

DSC_9673(small)

I have a picture of each of the seasons in my mind…summer is grill parties, fall is harvest dinners, and winter is comforting stews, roasts, and casseroles.  But every time cheery spring arrives with its bright blossoms, chirping birds, and sunny days, I feel like brunch is in order....
