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 […]

Banana Flax Chocolate Chip Muffins (Healthy, Gluten-Free Snacks for Kids)

Banana+Flax+Muffins+1

You know something?  Getting a whole family of five to cut down on gluten is not an easy feat.  None of us have gluten tolerance issues, but it’s been my mission for a while now to have everyone cut down on it.  For me, it’s fairly easy as I have to eat a certain way […]

Black and White Muffins (Low Carb and Gluten-Free)

So I had an interesting conversation the other day. A writer from The Globe and Mail, a national Canadian newspaper, came across my blog when searching for information about American Girl Scout cookies. It seems that my blog post about Homemade Thin Mints caught his eye. In that post, I was lamenting the difference between […]

Macadamia Coconut Lime Muffins (Low Carb and Gluten Free)

I think it would be safe to say that if nuts didn’t exist, neither would this blog. If there were no almonds, walnuts, pecans and hazelnuts to grind up and use in place of wheat flour, I would no longer be much of a baker. Oh sure, I’d make the occasional treat for my family […]

Garam Masala Muffins with Orange Glaze (Low Carb and Gluten Free)

1883

If you follow me on Twitter, you may have seen me last week putting out a plea for interesting muffin ideas. I was in one of those odd moods, where I wanted to make something but I couldn’t figure out what. I knew I wanted muffins, but that’s pretty standard for me, I love my […]

Chocolate Ginger Scones (Low Carb and Gluten Free)

1441

I used to say that there were only two foods I didn’t like – beets and ginger. But the ginger part of that statement came with qualifications. I’ve always like sweet gingery things, like ginger ale and gingersnaps. I just didn’t like chunks of ginger in my food. And candied ginger was utterly abhorrent to […]

Zucchini Walnut Spice Muffins (Low Carb and Gluten Free)

At this time of year, you see a lot of zucchini recipes. People with gardens are over-run with zucchini and eager to use them up. They start putting zucchini in everything from soup to cake in a desperate attempt to keep up the the over-productive plants, and many gardeners come to resent the lowly squash. […]
