Bean bake casserole for dinner? We’re excited here.  Quite a few things have changed around here in the last decade.

Meet Our Sponsors: Freshly

Freshly, a gluten-free fresh meal delivery service, is our latest sponsor. The opinions and words used here are our own.  As we all seem to grow busier, cooking every meal from scratch, made with whole foods, seems more and more difficult.

  As soon as I could grasp that it was people who wrote the books I loved — real people! not magicians!

gluten-free rhubarb pie

Gluten-free rhubarb pie can be yours, if you want it. And you don’t need strawberries. Yesterday afternoon, there was a warm breeze floating in from the west.

I don’t write about him the way I used to: breathless, giggling, everything a discovery. The words tumbled out of me then, urgent, since I had to throw them down on the page, as fast as I could, still not believing my luck.

On Sunday afternoon, as we were packing our bags for our trip to Montana, I was trying to bake something good before the light left the sky.

Meet Our Sponsors: Among Friends Baking Mixes

This feature on Among Friends Baking Mixes is a sponsored post. For more on our sponsorship program, read this.  The other day, I finally had the chance to speak with Lizann Anderson, one of the founders of Among Friends Baking Mixes. We’ve been enjoying these mixes for months, not only for their ease in the making (Lucy feels like a baking master when she puts one together herself), but also for their whole grains and good ingredients.
