Want a breakfast that is decadent, homey, soft and spicy? Then you have come to the right place my friends. These Gluten Free Pumpkin Waffles are all that and more. They are the perfect answer to feeding those guests who need to eat gluten free and everyone who needs to eat a tasty breakfast without the grainy or gummy texture some GF products can be known for.
I’ve decided not to reinvent the wheel and just show you what Sweet and Crumby has got for the upcoming big holiday. I hope this list gives you inspiration for your Thanksgiving menu.
Where is your happy place? What is the one thing in the world that can pick you up out of a slump and place you on solid ground? It’s important that you know yours and that you can summon it up on any given day when life is more than a little topsy turvy. There are too many moments that can throw you for a loop so please, if there is one take away from this post, research your happy place and know how to reach it at a moment’s notice. It is essential.
As my blog has remained frozen on the last post since just after Thanksgiving, I have been a baking fiend. But, unfortunately for this blog, I have not been baking many new items to post. I have been baking my favorites and distributing my very famous, or not-so-famous cookie baskets to friends and family which include: Katina’s Greek Cresecent Cookies, Finnish Ribbon Cookies, Ginger Crinkles, Orange and Rosemary Infused Chocolate Chip Cookies, Peppermint Death by Chocolate Cookies, Peanut Butter Blossoms and Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Truffles.
I know, us foodie bloggers tend to over-do the holidays. I just may be the biggest culprit of all. But, since we are all in the same red hearted boat my friends, I have decided to do a round up BECAUSE I have found some gorgeous and tantalizing things out there, and perhaps you have not run across these posts of perfection so here they are…red, hearted and delish!
Cali from Offally Tasty knocked my socks of with these Red Velvet Cheesecake Brownies. I need to see how I can work them into my life between today and Tuesday and you should too!
This is my second year of blogging and time for my now annual “These Are A Few of My Favorite Posts” (for last year’s attempt, click here).
I have a strange obsession with The Sound of Music so I urge you to sing along as you read this!
When the pie burns,
When souffles flop,
When I’m feeling sad,
I simply remember my favorite posts, and then I don’t feel so bad!

When I went to Simply Life’s blog today, I was captured by the photos and story of Sarah Lenssen who has started an organization called Ask5for5. It is such a simple concept to help raise money to feed children in East Africa; Ask 5 friends to donate $5 and email their friends to do the same. So simple, you think it might not have a big enough impact, and YET Ask5for5 has raised over $25,000 in a little over a month! That’s incredible! Please read her guest post and see if you can help with this cause.
Sarah believes the response to a crisis must be equal (if not greater) than the size and scope of it. So she is aiming to raise $40,000. This can be done. Giving $5, and getting just 5 of our friends to give $5. And each of their friends can contribute. Indeed, we can help relieve extreme hunger! Continue Reading →
Faith, from Edible Mosaic and Andrea of From the Bookshelf , both wonderful and interesting ladies, have tagged me in the Seven Links blog tag that has been hopping around the internet. I know…I have been tagged before for those of you scratching your head and thinking to yourself, “I thought I tagged her…”. For those, I am sorry that I am not mentioning you here because I truly don’t remember which of you nice bloggers who tagged me. But I have finally decided to stop being such a party pooper and jump in with both feet. So here they are folks, the seven posts I have chosen for infamy. I have started with a sweet pic of my pup just because I wanted to.
I have been L-A-Z-Y lately in the baking department because life just has other ideas than seeing me happily chirp away in my kitchen. So I have decided to share my ideal Fourth-Of-July Menu from the the Blogosphere. I have rudely stolen these photos from each one’s blog so I hope that’s OK folks. Have a great weekend!
Crazily, and not humbly, I would start the holiday with my own Red Velvet Pancakes. No one who is a regular follower is surprised that I would choose my OWN recipe…I am not exactly the type who shyly and sweetly stands in the background with my baked goods.
I am afraid I have not been totally honest with you, my faithful readers. I look back on many posts and see things that have literally been sugar coated; made pretty for the camera, better than they truly appear in my kitchen. This cake slice is a perfect example.
