“Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Scones”

Happy Fall Y’all, we are just now beginning to see a drop in our 100 degree weather. Evening walks with our dog, Winston finally calls for a light sweater, but I would be crazy to say that I need boots when going outside. Regardless of the weather outside, when the calendar turns it’s page to…

Gluten Free “Carrot Cake Muffins”

Muffins have been my saving grace when life gets busy and I need ‘on the go snacks’. Throughout the last couple of years I have baked enough muffins to supply the army, and then some. During one muffin crazed college semester, I baked a new batch of muffins every week. I tried ingredients that probably should not have been…
