bananas foster buckwheat belgian waffles {gluten free}


Here’s a fantastic, filling, high protein waffle recipe that is also gluten free. It’s quite a bit healthier than the typical Belgian waffle, but there is a lot of sugar in the bananas foster topping. If you’d like to substitute agave for the brown sugar, you sure can. Some people say that blue agave nectar…

savory dutch baby ~ puffy omelette {gluten free}


After receiving such a great response to my recipe post for this sweet Dutch baby with lemon syrup, I decided it was time to develop a savory version. Soooo, this past weekend I got to work creating a new recipe and this is what I came up with. This baby is the love child of…

chewy oatmeal date bars {gluten free}


Whenever we visit The Good Earth restaurant I like to indulge by treating myself to one of their ooey gooey oatmeal date bars. They’re buttery, rich, slightly crunchy on the outside and they have a thick layer of sweet, date filling in the middle. My goal in creating this recipe was to duplicate the texture…

apricot almond scones {gluten free}

Well, I didn’t have that, but I did have a can of the beans, so I improvised. This is incredibly easy, healthy and fun to make. I was looking for something I could slather goat…

mud pie muffins {gluten free}


Yesterday my friend Nancy and I went to Bayside for lunch (yum!) and then we did a little thrift store shopping (fun!). A used bookstore opened just up the street from me and we had a good time browsing in there for awhile too. I can’t wait to share the cool stuff I found with…

chocolate chip peanut butter quinoa bars {gluten free}


My phone has been ringing off the hook and my email has been filling up like crazy cakes. People excited about seeing my Heirlooms article in TeaTime Magazine, and wondering when the big feature article, (7 to 10 pages…) “The Minnesota Tea Experience ~ Taking Tea in the Land of 10,000 Lakes,” is going to…
