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

Low carb white chocolate Macadamia nut Scones

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)


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)


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)


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


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)


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 […]
