Sugar & Spice

I love everything about these cookies. The aroma while I am baking them. The simplicity of the recipe, and of course how wonderful they taste with a cup of coffee or milk.

Behold! Sugar & Spice (and everything nice, of course).

Pina Colada Cake

Gluten free baking is usually quite tricky. No matter how hard you try its rare that you get that wonderful, gutenous texture in a cake. That being said, this is a gluten free cake. But believe me, the yummy rumminess is more than adequate compensation. This cake was the perfect addition to a warm summer evening. It just screams summer holiday!

Good Gluten Free Bread(No Really)

I don’t know how many horrible gluten free bread recipes my husband had to suffer through before I found a good one but he certainly deserves compensation. Since I began my gluten free life change five years ago I have searched high and low for a rustic loaf of bread that tastes and feels like the traditional bread I used to know and love, and by Jove I think I’ve got it! I am pleased to introduce The Chelsea Loaf!

Oatmeal Lace Cookies and Fika

Dear Reader,

During our visit to Sweden last Summer we were introduced to the custom of Fika. What is Fika? You might ask. Well, I shall tell you. Fika is coffee with company and conversation. It is not grabbing a to-go cup of chain-espresso on your way to doing something very important in your very busy life. Fika is an opportunity to slow down, take in the atmosphere with someone you care to spend time with, preferably with something scrummy to munch on the side. It is about intimacy and intentionality. Not to mention it goes perfectly with the whole Hygge craze.
