Gluten-Free Sweet Potato Bread with Pecans and Tart Cherries

Gluten-Free Sweet Potato Bread with Pecans and Cherries

I love quick breads.  They’re easy to make, the recipes can easily be changed up to fit your mood, and pretty much everyone loves them.  I know I haven’t met a quick bread I didn’t like.  So when I saw a recipe for a Sweet Potato Cranberry Quick Bread pop up on Facebook yesterday from a new-to-me food blog called Beard & Bonnet, I had to investigate a little further.

Baking with Almond Flour: Grain-Free Banana Bread

Grain-free Banana Bread

This is the second installment in my unofficial Baking with Almond Flour series that I didn’t know would be a series until today.  This afternoon I made some delicious banana bread with almond flour instead of wheat flour.  It’s wonderful!  Phil has unfortunately had a hard time adding grains and dairy back to his diet and for now still feels best on a pretty strict Paleo diet.  I’m experimenting with this grain-free baking mostly for him since these tasty treats are very calorie-dense and don’t fit into my Need to Wear a Wedding Dress Soon Diet Plan very well.  It’s hard for me to stop at just one tiny piece of banana bread!

Apricot Cream Scones

Here’s a favorite scone recipe that I’m pulling forward from the first year of my blog.  This one features dried apricots in place of the more traditional currants.  The slightly tart bursts of apricot are a wonderful addition to the rich, tender cream scone.  I hope you enjoy this blast from the past, which was originally published on December 13, 2006.

Pumpkin-Maple Sourdough Cake

Sourdough Pumpkin-Maple Cake

Welcome back to Doughvember! This week, Linda and I are giving away sourdough-related prizes, so keep reading if you’re interested in today’s giveaway.  Have you had any sourdough adventures yet this month?  I’m saving my bread baking for the second half of the month, but this week I decided to experiment with using sourdough starter to replace part of the flour and water in a simple pumpkin cake.

Summer Fest: Creamy Peach and Greek Yogurt Smoothie

Creamy Peach Smoothie

I’m joining in on Summer Fest again this year, but I can hardly believe it’s summer.  In some ways, it seems like I just moved back to Fresno, but as the temperatures recently started up into the hundreds, I had flashbacks to last year and realized that this is my second summer here.  I’ve been back here, in the place where I grew up, for more than a year.  Well, it’s definitely starting to feel like home again and I’m happy to be here.

Curried Scrambled Eggs

Curried Scrambled Eggs with Avocado and Fruit

I’ve been eating eggs for breakfast quite a bit lately.  This isn’t because I’m stuck in a rut, but because I feel good when I eat eggs and I just really like them.  And okay, maybe I have been in a bit of a rut. Continue reading →

Crustless Quiche with Ham, Asaparagus, and Gruyere

Ham and Asparagus Quiche Hot from Oven

Thanks to the National Pork Board, I have ham leftovers before Easter this year!  I was given a free ham for myself and the opportunity to give away a ham to one of you – just in time for Easter.

While there are a million ways to use leftover ham, I think one of the best is to bake it up in a simple crustless quiche.  I decided to brighten up my usual ham and cheese quiche with some tender green asparagus.  I know that ham and asparagus are a classic combination, but this was my first time making a ham and asparagus quiche for myself.
