Frickin’ 40 Chocolate Birthday Cake

Anyone else out there have to bake her own birthday cake? I do. Can’t say I’m always happy about it, but at least I can put whatever the hell I want in there. I usually choose chocolate and rum. It makes old age a little more bearable. Plus, I have trust issues. I’m the only […]

Christmas Candy Cover Band

I found this 10 page Christmas candy article folded-up in my great-grandma’s recipe box. I knew it was old, but I couldn’t find a date on any of the pages. If it’s hidden in there somewhere, I can’t see it. I started to google the authors and judging by this information I found on Virginia Hagemeyer, I figured it […]

Gluten Free Sour Cream Apple Pie

Here is another amazing recipe from Great-Grandma’s recipe box. I used my own gluten free crust, but any gluten-free pie crust will do. I keep a mix of equal parts white rice, millet and tapioca flours for cases when I need just a bit of flour. I used this mixture to replace the flour in the […]

Gluten & Dairy-Free Mini Doughnuts

I modified one of my favorite peanut butter cake recipes to get these delicious mini doughnuts! Instead of shortening, I used coconut oil and instead of milk, I used coconut milk. When I try a new recipe, I try to cut it down as far as I can. Mostly because gluten-free ingredients are expensive and […]

Slow Cooker Peach Cobbler

I’m still working my way through that 25 pound box of peaches. I had only 3 pounds left and they needed to be used-up soon or tossed to the chickens.  My favorite peach recipe is for a Spiced Peach Butter from this amazing cookbook Saving the Season.  Kevin West puts spices, molasses and bourbon in […]

Rhubarb Coconut Bars

Rhubarb season in Michigan usually runs through May. This year, with the wretched winter, most crops are delayed a week or two. That works out great for me because here it is middle of June and the rhubarb is still growing fine. My neighbor puts rhubarb out by the road for sale and I have […]
