There is nothing like the taste of homemade jam, somehow it's simply better and fresher tasting. In fact, I may be slightly obsessed with this jam of late. I have literally been putting it on everything from breakfast toast to turkey sandwiches. Sweetened by maple syrup and full of antioxidant loaded cranberries this recipe isn't just jam, it's super jam.

This is my first fall and incidentally my first holiday season that I am unable to eat gluten*. But instead of feeling sorry for myself (okay I felt a little sorry for myself) I decided to crack the code on gluten-free baking. I have had

We have been creating new twists on our No Bake Granola Bars recipe posted last month and I love this autumn flavor combo of pumpkin and cranberry. This is a great recipe to make with kids, we made them recently in my Petite Chefs class and they were a lot of fun! The kids got sticky and had huge smiles on their faces..success!

Between trips to the apple orchards and Bebe B's quest to find the "biggest" apple ever we have had a house loaded with apples this fall (I mean LOADED). We have had a great time creating new recipes for them. Warning: this recipe will make your house smell AMAZING!! It makes a wonderful accompaniment to fall dinners or a warm breakfast!

This is a great savory pancake made of...veggies! These are one of our favorite ways to have breakfast for dinner (or brinner as we call it in our house). Both girls devoured them the first time I made them and do so every time I make them.

Here are Bebe B's summer camp lunches 11-19 and what was in them (that's the last of summer packed lunches). Each one took about 5-10 minutes to make and Bebe B helped me with many of them or at least told me what to pack. Also I ALWAYS pack the night before:

This is a fun recipe I created a few years back but never got around to sharing till now. It's a great little vegetarian burger that can turn even the strongest of little pea haters into pea lovers. This recipe is perfect for packing in a lunchbox or taking to a kid's event. Kids and grown-ups alike gobble them up because they are delicious.

A granola bar is quite possibly one of the most perfect creations ever created. It works for breakfast, snack, packed in a lunch and more. They sell some wonderful and healthy granola bars these days (and some not so healthy ones with an ingredient list 11 miles long)...BUT the cost can really add up. We love to buy them from time to time but it's also fun (and super easy) to make them. This recipe has only 7 ingredients and takes only 10 minutes to make. My girls have been snarfing this new creation down almost as fast as I have.
