Chocolate Pecan Pie Muffins – Low Carb and Gluten-Free

Chocolate Pecan Pie Muffins

A few weeks ago, my husband’s uncle came to stay with us for a few days.  I wish I could accurately describe Dan to those that don’t know him.  He is seemingly ageless, as spry and active as any 20 year old.  He also seems to have infinite patience with everyone around him.  I have […]

Pumpkin “Bran” Muffins – Low Carb and Gluten-Free

pumpkin bran muffins 4 @dreamaboutfood

Have you ever seen any of those gigantic pumpkins, the sort people grow for county fairs, up close and personal?  I have.  Sort of.  Which is to say that I’ve driven by them on the way to the beach.  We have a fondness for a particular beach on the North Shore, but it’s a beach […]

Cinnamon Donuts with Brown Butter Glaze – Low Carb and Gluten-Free

Cinnamon Donuts

Browned butter.  Just the very words are enough to send shivers of delight down my spine.  I love butter as it is, but there is something about heating  it to the point where it becomes nutty and fragrant that is pure heaven.   Typically I’ve used browned butter in savoury dishes, as sauce for fish […]

White Chocolate Macadamia Nut Scones – Low Carb and Gluten-Free

Low carb scone recipe

White chocolate isn’t really chocolate at all, at least not in the strictest sense of the word.  But I love it anyway.  I got a white chocolate bunny for Easter one year as a child and I was immediately hooked.  What’s not to love about the creamy vanilla confection?  Since it’s virtually all cocoa butter […]

Almond Flour Cinnamon Rolls – Low Carb and Gluten-Free

Low Carb Cinnamon Rolls

I think part of what makes someone good at developing new recipes is the ability to notice the properties of one recipe and translate it into a whole different recipe altogether.  This is a skill I seem to have developed over the past few years and I think I must have a mental filing cabinet […]

Strawberry Flax Yogurt Muffins – Gluten-Free Snacks for Kids

Strawberry Yogurt Muffins

Strawberry picking is one of the true joys of early summer here in New England. It’s one I look forward to for months in advance. We had such a warm spring this year, it feels like I’ve been dreaming of strawberry fields forever (yes, that is a Beatles reference, but don’t worry, I am not […]

Cheddar Jalapeno Muffins (Low Carb and Gluten-Free)

Cheddar+Jalapeno+Muffins+2

I’ve been having a love affair with muffins for a long time.  My first, or maybe my second, real job in high school was in a muffin shop.  And when I first realized that I was going to be a diabetic for life, the first low carb recipe I attempted to make was a blueberry […]

Almond Raspberry Jam Muffins (Low Carb and Gluten-Free)

Almond+Raspberry+Jam+Muffins

How do you decide what ingredient gets top billing in a recipe name?  For that matter, how do you decide on a recipe name at all?  Do you try to be descriptive, calling it by its main ingredients or the ones that make it unique?  Or do you get all metaphoric, conjuring up poetic images […]

Maple Pecan Scones (Low Carb and Gluten-Free)

Maple+Pecan+Scones+3

I am a Starbucks girl, through and through.  I don’t go every day, but I do spend a fair bit of time there as I prefer their coffee over almost every other coffee shop.  I have my Starbucks Gold card so that I can get my free drinks every so often and I even downloaded […]

Chocolate Donuts with Irish Cream Glaze – Low Carb and Gluten-Free

Chocolate+Donuts+with+Irish+Cream+3

Top o’ the mornin’ to ya, St. Paddy’s Day is a-comin’.  Yep, that’s my version of a very bad Irish brogue.  My apologies to the Irish people, I know you don’t really speak that way.  Just as I know you don’t eat corned beef and cabbage and drink green beer on March 17th.  But we […]
