How to Make Zucchini Noodles

Making veggie noodles is very simple. I've seen these vegetable noodles made with carrots as well as zucchini. Here, I use zucchini.

Fresh Basil Pesto

This week, when I realized I hadn't posted a recipe in over a week and a half, I had every intention of experimenting in the kitchen, and sharing an at least slightly complicated recipe with you--and proceed on wowing you with my expertise :)

It's Amore...

I've been gluten-free for ten months today.
And yes, I have finally fallen in love with a recipe for Gluten Free pizza.

So easy! Blueberry Muffins

I was actually surprised when these muffins turned out as good as they did! And in only one bowl, too :)
I used the ratio for muffins and quick breads from Ruhlman's book Ratio. This ratio is 2 parts flour: 2 parts liquid: 1 part egg: 1 part sugar: 1 part fat. Then added the basic salt and baking powder, and a couple handfuls of blueberries (so much cheaper while they're in season!), and voila!!

GF Brownies from Gluten Free Girl

The recipe for these brownies was originally shared back at April's brownie challenge for the Gluten Free Ratio Rally by Shauna at Gluten Free Girl. However, I've made these so many times that I just had to share them here, in case you're in need of a chocolate fix like I was yesterday! These might not be the "healthiest" chocolate snack ever, but they are also pretty dense, so usually one small piece is enough to satisfy my sweet tooth (so they can't be all that bad!) ;)

Food is not the enemy.

I was reminded of this revelation while having a wonderful, fresh salad for dinner tonight (it's been too hot to cook).

Then I diced a beautiful, ripe plum for dessert, just because I wanted to :)

Food is not the enemy.

Pennies from Heaven

"Every time it rains, it rains pennies from heaven
Don't you know each cloud contains pennies from heaven?
So when you hear it thunder, don't run under a tree,
'Cause there'll be pennies from heaven for you and me!"
