Tender Gluten Free Cream Biscuits with Strawberry Honey Butter

I love recipes that are simple, have few ingredients, and are all about technique. For these biscuits, the cutting is the important bit. To get the highest rise and tenderness, you want to use a sharp biscuit cutter in a quick downward motion with no twisting. To release the biscuit from the cutter, just tap…

One Pot Gluten Free Cheeseburger Macaroni

When I start to get desperate for meal ideas and we are running low on groceries, I often turn to pantry staples to help me break my rut. Although there are a few celiac-safe places in town we can grab takeout, I kind of like forcing myself to be creative in the kitchen. For some…

Skillet Brownie for Two (gluten free)

I am a sucker for a brownie, but I’m also passionate about what a brownie should be like. For instance, when someone says “I like a cakey brownie.” Ma’am, you like chocolate cake. A cakey brownie is not a brownie. It’s cake. A brownie is fudgy, super chocolatey, rich, and decadent. The end. Ok, great,…

Accidentally Super Fluffy Gluten and Dairy Free Pancakes

Before starting my food blog about a year ago, I made Saturday pancakes on the regular, but since I now homeschool and only have the weekends and a dwindling naptime to work, I start first thing Saturday mornings, and pancake time has slowly had to evolve into mommy working time.

Thai Curry Shrimp and Noodles

Jalapeño Popper Dip

I am totally a dip person, and if I could choose just one dip for to eat for the rest of my life, it would be this one. It’s that good. I first discovered several recipes for jalapeño popper dip while perusing Pinterest several years ago and got inspired to make my own. Over the…

Levain Bakery Inspired Cookies (Gluten Free!)

If there’s one Instagrammable cookie that has always caught my eye it has been the iconic NYC Levain Bakery cookie. Every time this or any copycat-type cookie pops up on my feed I am in awe of how thick and humongous it is while looking like it’s maintaining all of the textures that a chocolate…

Turkey Taco Mac Skillet

Google defines comfort food like this: “Food that provides consolation or a feeling of well-being, typically any with a high sugar or other carbohydrate content and associated with childhood or home cooking.” Wikipedia’s definition is similar but even more detailed: “kinds of food that provides a nostalgic or sentimental value to someone, and may be characterized by its high caloric…

How to Build the Perfect Simple Charcuterie Board

But first, a charcuterie board story Traditionally, a charcuterie board is a Willis family Christmas Eve Tradition. In fact, it’s such a firm tradition that I refused to stop dipping little clementine orange slices in chocolate for our 2013 board as I was in active labor for our second child. In my defense, I wasn’t…
