Salted Butterscotch Oat Bars

I remember going to Christmas cookie exchange parties with my mom when I was pretty young.

I’ll admit, other than the cookies (of course) it was a pretty boring affair. I always enjoyed the loot that we went home with though; it was fun to get to sample a variety of things without actually having to make 20 different recipes.

Pumpkin Spice Granola

I try not to, but every time my pantry granola stash runs low I have a strange sense of urgency to hurry up and make a new batch.  No idea why this is, but for some strange reason granola has that effect on me…I guess I just love having it around.  This seasonally-flavored batch is especially wonderful.  It’s great as pre- or post-workout fuel, a healthy mid-morning or afternoon snack (especially for my niece who adores it), or a festive addition to brunch for guests who arrive unexpectedly ravenous mid-morning on a Saturday (not that I’m talking to anyone in particular ;) )....

I love making quick bread or muffins on relaxed weekend mornings.  There’s something almost magical about a late summer Saturday morning…waking up to the sound of birds chirping and sunlight streaming in your window…and of course knowing that you have the whole day free to do whatever you want!  Those kinds of mornings call for a special start to the day....

Jam Bar Cookies {Gluten-Free & Naturally Sweetened}

There’s a cute little co-op in my area that makes the best jam thumbprint cookies around.  The only problem is that the co-op is over half an hour away from where I live and I’m not willing to drive that far every time I want a good jam thumbprint.  You can probably see where this is going, lol.  I decided to try and replicate them at home (try being the operative word here)....

Oat Tea

Old man winter has made himself at home.  And while I really don’t mind his arrival, it’s the goodies he tends to bring with him, like colds, flues, and less than 10 hours of sunlight each day that I don’t enjoy.  Being asthmatic, I’m especially prone to lung infection, particularly pneumonia.  (I’ve gotten it every year since I’ve moved from Florida back to New York…hmm, perhaps a sign that I need to move back to Florida?)  Anyway, I’ve been feeling a little under the weather and I’m of the mindset that prevention is the best cure, which is why as of late I’ve been getting […]...
