Chocolate Pie (grain free/refined sugar free)

February 12, 2014

Yes, yes once again it has been a long time. Truth is, as always, life gets in the way and I am starting to learn to be okay with that. Fact is, baking a treat, photographing it, and blogging about it with a 6-month old sweet girl who isn't fond of napping, just isn't realistic most days...and once again, I am learning to be okay with that. Trust me, I don't only make us tasty grain free desserts once every 3 months, it is far more often then that!! I just haven't been able to justify taking away time with our sweet little one to blog. 

"Samoa" Baked Doughnuts (grain/nut/refined sugar free)

September 7, 2013

Well, just like every time I take a large break, it seems like life dramatically changes for our family! I think the last time I posted a recipe, I was 17 weeks pregnant with our little one! Which is why I haven't posted in a very long time. The thought of baking, photographing, and blogging when I was pregnant was enough to send me to the bed exhausted! Since then, we have now had our sweet little girl, Zoey Maye, who is almost 7 weeks old! I cannot believe how fast time is flying and how much our life has changed in those short 7 weeks! She is the sweetest, sassiest, most adorable little thing and every day we realize how much the Lord has blessed us with her as our daughter. 

Grain Free Banana Bread

February 23, 2013

So it may seem like an oxymoron, a very unhealthy baking blog, doing a gluten free banana bread that is free of refined sugar and grain free. Since I have been pregnant (going on 17 weeks now) my eating habits have slowly started changing. We are very healthy eaters as it is, and try to keep our diet free from breads and sugars, but in the first trimester of my pregnancy carbs were one of the few things I was able to stomach. And the difference in the way it made my body feel was astounding. I was so much more tired all the time, my body was never energized, and I never felt well fed. Since I have gotten into the second trimester I have started eating as we did before, and have felt much better. 

Blueberry Lemon Poppyseed Cake

January 17, 2013

Since last time we all talked, a lot has changed in our small little family. In the beginning of November we moved into our adorable new little home! We could not be more excited to be living where we are and are so blessed through it all! Our new house is about 5 minutes from my parents house and about 20 feet (across the street) from my sister, her husband, and our two nephews! So it has been quite the fun adventure around here! 

Pumpkin Cheesecake

October 29, 2012

Well that took much longer then usual to get this recipe up on the blog! We weren't able to get "professional" looking pictures of the cheesecake due to the fact that it was for a party we were hosting, and it was night! My sweet hubby had a wine and cheese party for all his clients as a launch of his new business! Of course me and my mom took every opportunity we could to make the food! We had tons of bruschetta, bread, cheese, appetizers, wine, and of course the desserts! It was a great night spent with great friends, and I am so thankful that the Lord has blessed him with this incredible business that is filled with friends that we will have for a lifetime! 

Banana Cake for Two

October 13, 2012

Now I must say, please do not judge my photograph! My sweet husband has been working so hard for his new business that I had to take one for the team and photograph this cake. And I must say I have a new appreciation for when my husband takes pictures for me! It is much harder then it looks! I tried every angle, lighting, backdrop possible and it just seemed to be a dud. So please forgive the horrendous pictures and just focus on a delicious little banana cake for two!
