Bait and Switch Delectable Gluten Free Pumpkin Pancakes

I am honest to a fault. Seriously to a fault. I always bring baked goods and then instantly blurt out ANYTHING minuscule that went awry, as if someone slipped truth serum into my coffee. My most recent admission was,..”I got wrapped up in watching re-runs of Chuck and may have left these muffins in a stitch too long.”

The pictures you see here, unfortunately, are from my last year’s post of my AP Flour pumpkin pancakes. My problem was that I kept making my delicious, fabulously soft, not gritty and very fluffy GF pumpkin pancakes and running out of time to take pictures. Life’s a bit of a bumpy ride for the moment at best (more like an unpaved road in a construction zone. See? Honest to a fault).

A Parade of Easter Sweets

Whether you have big plans, little plans or no plans, you can whip up one of these spring-y sweets to help celebrate the day. I have rated these recipes based on difficulty and time needed so you can choose the one that fits into your life.

Braided Bread Stuffed with Lemon Curd. This soft, delicate, flaky filled bread is so tangy and sweet. It is really a perfectly beautiful bread to BRING to a brunch, one that you are not hosting and you are only responsible for ONE THING. Because this one is a solid 9/10  in difficulty level (maybe a 10…let’s not mince words) and is totally worth it if you have the time and energy.

Stumble Out of Bed Chocolate Chip Espresso Muffins {GF and AP Versions}

Do you have one eye open most mornings, trip over the dog as you shuffle to the kitchen and barely pour your waiting pre-programmed cup of coffee into your mug? Or, if you are like one of my best friends, she can’t even get that far into her morning without a pinch hitter. Her hubby brings her a first cup of the day in bed before she can even attempt to face her day. Yeah, there are men like that, or at least men who are smart enough to know what’s good for them. ;)

A Tale of Two Irish Soda Breads (GF and AP Flour versions)

“Challenge Accepted!”, in true Barney style, was my answer when my mom asked me to bring a GF version of my semi-famous Irish Soda Bread to her St. Patrick’s Day Themed Sunday Dinner last night.

These Lavender Scones Were Brought to You By Being Totally Prepared for an EBS (Emergency Baking Situation)

These pictures are lascivious. I know. How could I photograph these irresistible sweet and floral lavender scones with the blue Pacific peeking from behind and not invite you to stay? It seems rather rude to taunt you like this, but I was never in the running for the Ms. Manners’ title anyway so I am not terribly concerned.

Start Valentine’s Day on a High Note With Red Velvet Pancakes

Can you think of a better way to start your Valentine’s Day morning than with rich, soft, chocolaty Red Velvet Pancakes?!  I can’t either.  They even get served with a luscious, cream cheese dipping sauce.  Pretty sweet, right?— pun totally intended…that’s just how I roll.

Striving for Mediocrity and My Low-Cal/Low-Fat Heavenly Apple Blueberry Muffins

For those of you who have been around these parts for awhile, I am sorry for another repost, but it is apropos, delicious, healthy, and I don’t have a new post so there you have it.

Resolutions, most of us make them at this time of year and most of us have sadly thrown in the towel in about 3.2 weeks; I have read that stat somewhere but I don’t remember where.  So to help you at least start out on the right foot, I offer you these very healthy, super duper soft and  lightly spiced cardamom and cinnamon, apple-blueberry muffins.
