Grain-Free Blueberry Muffins

Grain-Free Blueberry Muffins

It’s taken a lot of trial and error to learn how to bake using non-grain flours, however with my latest trial of blueberry muffins I can see how far I’ve come in my baking. When I first tried to use coconut flour for muffins, they […]

Primal Yellow Summer Squash Pizza Crust

Primal Yellow Summer Squash Pizza Crust

The other day I got some summer squash for free from the greenhouse at work. They were kind of pithy in the middle and the skin on the outside was tough, so I didn’t want to just saute them. I remembered some great veggie-based pizza […]

Golden Sunrise Muffins

Golden Sunrise Muffins

I made it through my first semester of my Ph.D. but even though classes are done I’m still eyeball-deep in work. I’m really loving my field work, however. I get to spend most days in the vineyard. If you’ve ever been to West Texas, you’ll […]

Garden Chicken Sandwich

Garden Chicken Sandwich

This past weekend was amazing. I went to the annual Texas Wine and Grape Growers Association conference in San Marcos, TX. Not only was it exciting to travel to a place in Texas that I had never been, but it was my first opportunity to […]

Butternut Squash and Cranberry Bread

Butternut Squash and Cranberry Bread

I’m back home in Indiana enjoying winter break. I’ve been back since Saturday and I’m doing well to remember what relaxation really is. For me, true relaxation involves cooking, which seemed like an indulgence for me over the last month of busyness. One of the […]

Three Seed Bread

Three Seed Bread

Last night I made bread for the week. I’m beginning to think making bread should become a weekly ritual because it tastes so much better than the processed stuff I used to get. I especially like the fact that it’s not full of preservatives and […]

Low-Carb Honey Whole Wheat Bread with Walnuts

Low-Carb Honey Whole Wheat Bread with Walnuts

After nearly a month of no bread eating because of the South Beach Diet, I decided to knuckle down and make the whole wheat bread recipe from the South Beach Diet Cookbook. I am in phase 2 of the program now, so there’s no harm […]
