Fruit Filled Thumbprint Cookies

Fruit Filled Thumbprint Cookies

So these cute little cookies are made from my leftover pie crust. They are crunchy, but hold together well, have a nice buttery taste, get their sweetness from the preserves on top, and look like little jewels. They tasted almost like a shortbread cookie to […]

Mom’s Gluten Free Chimichanga Recipe

Mom’s Gluten Free Chimichanga Recipe

This is my mom’s classic chimichanga recipe. She is serious about her chimichangas and these are the real deal. The meat is the exact same recipe as hers (which by the way is wonderful), and the only changes I made were to leave off the […]

Gluten Free Blackberry Cobbler

Gluten Free Blackberry Cobbler

There are many different ways to make the crust for a blackberry cobbler, but I went with a traditional biscuit topping. Instead of forming whole biscuits, though, I dropped little pieces of the batter all across the top-kinda like a cobblestone road…. hence, cobbler 🙂 […]

Chicken Pazoli

When I first told my husband we were having Chicken Pazoli for dinner and he figured out it was soup, I have to say he was disappointed. “Soup won’t fill me up for dinner,” he said. Even my kids didn’t want soup. But I have to […]

Dairy Free Chocolate Truffles

When my husband tasted these he said, “Wow, some people would really like these!” While he liked them, the truffles were a little bit rich for his taste, but me and my daughter Ava couldn’t be happier. They have a rich milk chocolaty center with […]

Orange Marmalade Pork Tenderloin

Orange Marmalade Pork Tenderloin

  If you’ve never cooked a pork tenderloin, the sear-then-roast method works very well and lends itself to a number of different sauces and recipes. The pioneer woman has a great cranberry pork tenderloin that I make often. My orange marmalade tenderloin is flavorful, tender, […]

The Best Chocolate Cupcakes Ever!

Update– See my revised chocolate cupcake recipe that is sweetened with honey! I saw a chocolate cupcake recipe at the joy of baking and thought cupcakes would be something fun for me and my kids to do together while we’re still stuck at home because […]

Gluten Free Dinner Rolls

Gluten Free Dinner Rolls

The poor little roll in the middle! The ones on the outside are X-large and the one in the middle is X-small! Oh well, next time I’ll know to make all of them golf-ball sized, not 7 golf balls on steroids and one dwarf golf […]
