White Chocolate Chai Gluten-Free Cookies

Are you as psyched that it’s Christmas as I am?! The tree, the lights, the music, the food, the books. Oh man, I probably say this every year (okay I’m positive that I say this every year) but if you have kids then you MUST get them Christmas in Noisy Village, and then you will have to…

Monkey Bread “Cupcakes”, Every Last Crumb

I’ve always said that eating this way—without gluten, grains, or dairy—can be just as good as the alternative, or… dare I say, better.

Loaded Spaghetti Squash

I’ve been making double batches of the shreddable cheese for Ashley and I. We haven’t found anything we don’t like it on. Hot green beans or peas, salad, wilted spinach, baked potatoes. The list goes on and on. If you put it on something hot it melts into sauce. Oh. My. Gooooooodness. This was one…

Salted Caramel Protein Shakes

I have a thing for small spaces. Now, I know what you’re thinking: sour grapes. But that’s not it. Honestly. In fact, I had a really big house once, and it wasn’t for me. I have a thing for small spaces. Cottages, ranches, historic houses (the small ones). And then there’s the on-going debate over…
