Sunflowers and Maple-Pecan Chocolate Chip Waffle Cookie Recipe {Gluten-Free}

The other night I asked my 9-year-old son, who has Celiac Disease, what type of gluten-free cookie I should try to create next.  After thinking for a moment, he said, “a maple cookie.”  And by “maple” he meant our adorable Goldendoodle, named Maple (see image below recipe).  Whether he meant cookies for Maple, cookies shaped […]

Sometimes the best flavor combinations are completely unexpected.   Figs and coffee.  It’s a brilliant pairing. I wouldn’t love a breakfast consisting of a hot cup of coffee and fresh figs — though, independently, they are both delicious. by

I was introduced to the flavor of coffee at a very early age, probably under ten-years-old. No, not in a mug with half and half!  Rather, in pint-sized container of Häagen-Dazs coffee ice cream.  You see, it was, and still is my dad’s favorite flavor.  It didn’t have to be Häagen-Dazs, but I think more […]

My husband is the best! He runs out to get me frozen yogurt if I’m suddenly craving it at 9 or 10 PM while we’re relaxing on the couch.  He always has my back.  He’s the best, most fun, dad in the world.  He allows our dog to be both on the couch and the […]
