Coconut Chocolate Chip Oatmeal Skillet Cookie by Rachel

PagesCoconut Chocolate Chip Oatmeal Skillet CookieOh skillet cookie, you have evaded me until now.I have no idea why I hadn't made a skillet cookie up until this point. It's basically the same thing as making blondies except that you bake it in a cast iron skillet which just adds to the charm. I definitely do not use my skillet…

Fluffy Buttermilk Pancakes with Buttermilk-Caramel Syrup

Fluffy Buttermilk Pancakes with Buttermilk-Caramel Syrup by Rachel

To say that I've made a lot of pancakes is an understatement. While we do go through times where we don't eat them for months, we also go through times where we eat them every weekend and Jack eats the leftovers for days. Perhaps not the healthiest of breakfasts buuuuut they are pretty tasty.I used to make them from a mix but they…

DIY: Homemade Cheese Crackers

DIY: Homemade Cheese Crackers by Rachel

Cheez-Its have been a longtime favorite snack of mine. They're easy to grab, salty, and crunchy - 3 of my favorite things about a snack. As usual, though, I decided to try my hand at making them myself. And wouldn't you know it? These taste about a million times better than the boxed version!! Shocking, I know.I've made a couple…

Roasted Strawberry Muffins with Lemon-Vanilla Bean Butter

Roasted Strawberry Muffins with Lemon-Vanilla Bean Butter by Rachel

PagesRoasted Strawberry Muffins with Lemon-Vanilla Bean ButterI made a resolution to myself this spring that I would cook and bake with the fresh berries that are available this time of year. I have a habit of just serving them on the side with breakfast or as a snack in the afternoon. I don't cook and bake with them nearly enough.…

Greek Pasta Salad

I love that I can make it for lunch one day and then enjoy it for several days after - usually it just gets better and better on those subsequent days, too.This pasta salad is particularly light and extremely flavorful. Packed with tomatoes, cucumbers, olives, herbs…

Garden Minestrone

Garden Minestrone by Rachel

PagesGarden MinestroneI know that soup is definitely not something that you think about very often in the summer. It's hot and steamy outside and the last thing that you want to do is eat a bowl of hot and steamy soup. BUT, when it rains for two weeks straight,, you might go a little crazy and make this soup. And…

Mini Baguettes

Mini Baguettes by Rachel

PagesMini BaguettesI'd recently fallen out of the habit of making homemade bread (really, really fallen out of it). I think with having a new baby, a toddler running around, and just regular old life, something had to give and that was it. With company coming, though, I wanted to make something special and I was feeling the baking…

Coconut Milk Blueberry Pancakes

Coconut Milk Blueberry Pancakes by Rachel

Breakfast has been pretty hard for me since going dairy free while nursing Will. Cereal is out because I don't really like any milk substitutes, I like cheese with my eggs, pancakes/waffles/French toast all require butter and milk. *sigh* I've been eating a lot of toast and bagels topped with coconut oil with a side of fruit and…
