Oatmeal Optional-Raisin Cookies {Gluten-Free, Vegan, Gum-Free}

Oatmeal Raisin Cookies {Gluten-Free, Vegan, Gum-Free}  /  Delicious as it Looks

The weather is cooling, the humidity is down, fall is arriving. As the temperature decreases, my desire to bake increases. I had a craving for oatmeal raisin cookies the other day. It just seemed like the perfect thing to bake for this time of year. Hearty and warm with cinnamon, oatmeal raisin cookies are so homey. It's not quite time for pumpkin yet (although the coffee places think otherwise), so oatmeal raisin cookies it is.

Belly Update: Brown Rice is Back!

Brown & White Rice Flour Blend {Gluten-Free, Gum-Free}  /  Delicious as it LooksOver the past year I have resigned to the fact that there are just some foods I cannot eat.

Life Update & A New Salmon Recipe

Creamy Dijon & Dill Baked Salmon {Low-FODMAP, Gluten-Free, Dairy-Free, Egg-Free}  /  Delicious as it Looks

I've had a really tough time this past month. My mom is sick in the hospital. I've talked on my blog before about my family's health issues (here). My mom is a paraplegic. Last month, one thing led to another and she ended up in the hospital unable to breathe. She ended up with a tracheotomy and is now undergoing rehabilitation to help her breathe on her own again. It was quite serious and probably the most difficult thing my family has been through yet. However, the crisis seems to be over for now and the doctors are very positive that she will make a full recovery.

Three-Ingredient Peanut Butter Marshmallow Fudge

Only 3 Ingredients! Peanut Butter Marshmallow Fudge  /  Delicious as it Looks

I love having a bite of chocolate at the end of a meal. Most of the time it's just a square of high-quality dark chocolate, but sometimes I like to make something myself. Like this fudge recipe. It has become a favorite of mine because it's so easy and only requires three ingredients, all three of which I usually keep stocked in my pantry at all times.
