Recipe Collection: Soaked Apple Cinnamon Oat Muffins

By | July 14, 2011

I decided this sounded good, and I had some oats in my pantry that needed be used up.  I have to be really careful with oats, because my kids don’t react well at all if they’re not soaked.  So that was the perfect excuse to go ahead and created a soaked muffin recipe!  Although these Read More

Recipe Collection: Corn Bread

By | April 28, 2011

The other night I made chili for dinner (you can find that recipe in Real Food Basics), and decided to make some cornbread to go alongside.  I don’t use recipes — usually — when I bake anymore, so I threw some stuff together.  It was delicious, so I’m sharing it with you!  I made a Read More

Recipe Collection: Cheddar Crackers

By | January 13, 2011

So, lately, I haven’t posted a ton of awesome recipes up here (except, of course, last week’s sneak peek to Healthy Pregnancy Super Foods!.  That’s because if I come up with a truly awesome recipe, it’s probably because I’m recipe testing for one of my ebooks.  But this recipe doesn’t fit in any of them Read More

By | November 4, 2010

**This post is linked to Pennywise Platters Thursday at The Nourishing Gourmet!** I have several pancake and waffle recipes.  One is in Real Food Basics.  But recently, given the ingredients I had, I decided to try making waffles a new way.  They were surprisingly light and fluffy, even though they were made with sprouted flour.  Read More

Recipe Collection: Pumpkin Bread

By | October 14, 2010

Image Credit What says “fall” better than pumpkin bread?  Warm, spicy pumpkin bread, fresh from the oven and covered in butter….  Yummy!  Last year I posted a gluten-free version, as we were gluten-free at that time (it’s also dairy-free).  This year I’m posting a “regular” version for those of you who are not gluten- or Read More

Recipe Collection: Sprouted Spelt Biscuits

By | July 29, 2010

Last weekend I had biscuits and gravy on my meal plan. Ben had requested it. The last time I’d tried to make it, it hadn’t come out too well. The biscuits had been dry and tough and strange-flavored; the gravy had been thin. The whole meal had been…blah. So this time, I decided not to look up a recipe for biscuits, but just to go by feel and see what I came up with (and I measured, in case it was good). It was SO delicious I just have to share it with you!

These muffins are awesome! I set out to make a (refined) sugar-free version and this is what I came up with. They were delicious, and could be very versatile.  Try them and see!

Recipe Collection: Zucchini Lemon Poppy Seed Bread

By | July 1, 2010

It had been on my plan to make lemon-poppy-seed bread anyway when I started getting lots of zucchini from my CSA.  So I thought, I ought to make some zucchini bread too!  However, I didn’t have a recipe for either that really worked for me yet.  Then I got the brilliant idea to combine them into one delicious, healthy bread.  I had also sampled some cheesecake that had nutmeg in it and the flavor had reminded me of lemon zest, so I thought, I bet that will be the perfect spice for this bread.  I probably could have even added more than I did.  The result was fabulous — moist on the inside and chewy-crunchy on the outside!
