Cake Batter Rice Crispy Treats

I recently came across a recipe for Cake Batter Rice Crispy Treats over at Gimme Some Oven and I so had to try them. I mean seriously – cake batter and rice crispy treats – who could pass that up. I did try them and if I make them again, I would have to make […]

Dark Chocolate Coconut Treats

I love coconut and chocolate, especially Mounds and Almond Joy, so when I came across Tasty Yummies recipe for these delicious Dark Chocolate Coconut Treats, I had to try them.  These are Vegan, Gluten-free and Refined Sugar-Free, which means they are perfect for the boys and they are completely unprocessed (I’m starting a clean eating […]

Fruity Mango Bars

What are millet flakes?  Does anyone know?  I came across this recipe in the Great Gluten-Free Baking by Louise Blair and it sounds really good, except I have no idea what millet flakes are.  So here’s the recipe and once I find out, and thus try this, I’ll make sure to update. Ingredients: 1/2 cup […]

Sweet Carrot Cake

This recipe from Great Gluten-Free Baking by Louise Blair was originally called Passion Cake Squares, however I just didn’t think that name fit.  For one, the cake came out way more like a carrot cake than anything fruity.  I don’t know why, but whenever I heard “passion cake” I think more of pineapple and the […]

Apricot Toffee Rice Krispies

I love rice krispies treats and when I came across the Messy Marshmallow Krispies in Great Gluten-Free Baking by Louise Blair, I just had to add them.  They add a nice healthy component to a regular favorite that I can’t see it not being a hit. Especially since I don’t see why it wouldn’t be possible […]

Chewy Chocolate Brownies

The boys love their brownies, so I have a feeling I’ll be trying a couple of different recipes until I find one that works.  The first one is from Great Gluten-Free Baking by Louise Blair, and aside from the different flours, there’s not a whole lot that shouldn’t make this work. Ingredients: 3oz gluten-free dark […]

Coconut Cupcakes

Now that Simon has the wheat-allergy, you’re going to be seeing more gluten-free and wheat-free recipes showing up.  The more I read up on this allergy, the more restrictive I realize his diet is going to be.  Therefore, I’m turning the entire house into a wheat-free zone and that means all of us are going […]

Amish Sugar Cookies

I think I need to find a few more Amish style recipes – the last two I’ve tried have been fabulous! Awhile back, I was looking for a sugar cookie recipe since Jesse wasn’t a fan of the one I had. As I was looking, I came across this recipe over at Taste of Home […]

Cutout Sugar Cookies

I love sugar cookies and the monkey loves to make them for Santa Claus.  I’ve tried a few recipes before and I haven’t really been happy with the way they’ve turned out.  Recently, I found a sugar cookie (non-cutout) recipe that used powdered sugar instead of cane sugar and I liked it.  So I went […]

Chocolate Chip Brownie Cookies

I haven’t tried these yet, but I had to add these to OSC when I found them.  These are totally thanks to Bakerella and I can’t believe I never even thought of trying something like this.  I love chocolate chip cookies and brownies, so why not put them together?  I’ll add more commentary once I […]
