These muffins are chock-full of shredded zucchini, carrots, nuts, and spices that all blend together to make the perfect muffin.

I have been trying for a few years to perfect the perfect all-purpose gluten-free flour blend. This is a great, all-purpose flour/starch blend for making tasty and nutritious baked goods….that look AND taste good. This blend seems to do the trick in many of my converted recipes. When looking for a wheat-free substitute for wheat flour, you will need to consider a blend. This is because no other single flour or wheat-free starch behaves the same way as wheat flour...Read More »

Move over green eggs and ham! Make room for the king of greens–KALE! I am on a mission to...Read More »

This cornbread recipe is from Pamela’s Products website, although I tweaked it a bit by adding vinegar to the milk prior to adding the milk to the dry ingredients.

I also added an extra tablespoon of butter to the batter and a tablespoon of butter to the pan to melt in the oven just prior to baking. Gluten-Free Cornbread – Does it taste just as good? Yes! This bread has a...Read More »

Creamy mushroom soup – flavorful and filling While growing up I never was a fan of mushrooms, but over time I learned to appreciate their earthiness. When mixed with other vegetables and covered in sauce, it’s hard to taste the uniqueness mushroom brings to a dish. But when you allow them to be the highlight of a dish, the flavor and nutritional benefits shine through. I’ve never made mushroom soup prior to making this recipe. Since I rarely seem to...Read More »

Cathy’s insight and guidance has, and continues, to help me organize my previously chaotic life into a group of systems that work well together. Her program helped me reduce the stress of trying to keep track of so many things at once, and save me significant time that can be used for more productive things. If you’re feeling overwhelmed by all the things you have to do and to keep track of, I highly recommend that you speak with Cathy about how her Time Strategies can help you make your life make sense.
