Favorite Find: Gluten Free Cupcake Mix + Bonus Recipe

Thumbnail image for Favorite Find: Gluten Free Cupcake Mix + Bonus Recipe February 29, 2012

Truth be told, I’m not normally a fan of boxed cake mixes.  Simply because they contain sugar and processed ingredients.  I’ve done many trials of ‘healthy’ gluten free cupcakes, and they’ve failed every time.  I’m not willing to buy 5 different types of weird flours in order to make 1 recipe that I have once […]

Pot roast, one of the most comforting foods out there. If your family likes meat and potatoes (much like my husband), this recipe will be a hit!  The gravy is so delicious and you can’t even tell the base is coffee, I swear!  I don’t think I’ll make a pot roast any other way now, […]

Happy Wednesday! Mid-week already!  This isn’t exactly a “new” Favorite Find, but I haven’t posted about it before. I’m no stranger to Popchips. I first discovered them at a friends party.  They were served instead of chips. Brilliant!  Not fried, and crunchy chip-like taste.  Then, I started seeing them in stores. I’ve bought the big […]

Low Fat Cheddar Herb Biscuits (Gluten Free)

Biscuits. Not something you would think could be low fat, as typically, most biscuits are loaded with fat.  I was able to use half the amount of fat than called for, and it still totally worked!  My first attempt at from-scratch biscuits failed, big time.  I tried with oat flour, and they didn’t work at […]
