Recipe: Banana Cupcakes with Whipped Custard Frosting

Cupcakes are so cute! The dainty size, the cute paper wrapper, and of course the thick swirl of frosting on top...no wonder cupcake shops are cropping up all over town.

Recipe: Paleo Banana Muffins

Do you love banana bread? I sure do. I've tried quite a few recipes for banana bread, cake, and muffins and found that adding banana to a recipe really helps when you are baking gluten free.

Want to know a secret? I have a real weakness for cheesecake. It's so rich, creamy, and decadent! It's even better when it's topped with fresh berries. But it takes hours to make a cheesecake! Not only do you have to prepare and bake the crust, but the cake takes an hour in the oven [...]

Recipe: Real Food Snow Cones

In my neck of the woods, snow cone stands seem to be popping up in every parking lot. On a hot day, what sounds better than a nice, frosty snow cone? However, what's in the syrups that go over all that innocent ice leaves something to be desired. My grandmother told me that if I [...]
