You know how whenever you see that you have a notification on Facebook you get really excited, only to be disappointed by a person you didn't even remember you were friends with inviting you to like a random, irrelevant page, or even worse... inviting you to play Candy Crush Saga? Well, I am now that annoying person. It started out as a modest endeavor to invite a couple of friends to my Facebook page for Yammie's Noshery. But then I thought to myself... "Hey, he might like it to. Oh, she definitely will. I don't think he cooks, but I'll invite him anyway. What! I'm still friends with this person? Well, no matter. She's invited." Until finally I stopped even looking at the names until every single one was invited. So, um... sorry about that guys. But, hey! Welcome!
So here is Yammie's grandma's famous pumpkin bread. You know it's going to be good, because it's based on her grandma's famous banana bread muffins. It's so delicious that Yammie had wanted to freeze "the rest" soon after she made it when we realized "the rest" was just an end piece with a few crumbs. But apparently the bread does freeze well if you have too much, says Yammie. Anyway, this isn't Yammie writing this post. I suppose you could tell, because Yammie usually doesn't speak in the third person. But if you do go back and imagine her writing, it is kind of funny.
Guys, I am so excited about this coffee cake. How is there no flour in this? Look at it, people. I really had no idea oats alone could do this. I am amazed that sometimes it really is that simple to make a recipe gluten free. In fact, I'm eating a piece for my breakfast right now as I type, and I just keep shaking my head disbelief and muttering things like, "unbelievable" to myself. Now, as I finish the last crunchy crumb, I gaze out the window in satisfied content, pondering the newfound wonder of simple oats.
This chocolate pie is creamy, rich, and is whipped up in the microwave in seconds!
It's official. The high and honorable duty of being the head grocery shopper of the family has been passed down from my dad to me and two of my sisters. The job of shopping for our family of nine had simply become too much for one man. He would often run through Sam's club, fill the cart, pay, load up the car and then go back for a second or even third load. We decided it had to come to an end. My two sisters and I now rip the list into three pieces and each take a cart to different sections of the store, running through the aisles like maniacs racing to be the first one to the checkout.
This cheesecake I posted on the other blog can be gluten free if you use gluten free Oreos!
Now comes the time after Christmas when you have to buckle down and get back to work. You may have thought I would make something extravagant with the newest member of our family, Big Red. Not so. I tried to think of the easiest, quickest thing I could possibly make and this is what happened.
Hello my gluten free friends! I hope you don't find it annoying of me that I've been posting nothing but gluten free versions of recipes from my other blog lately. Good news is, I've been working on some gluten free breads lately so you may be seeing those in the nearish future.
Okay guys. Here's another repeat from the other blog. Maybe sometime I'll make you something especially gluten free that all the regular people will envy, but that day is not this day.
You remember Sarah, the one who brought us the crunchiest caramel popcorn in the world. Well, now it's our turn to give something to Sarah. You see, Sarah, like all sane people, has a true passion for all things chocolate peanut butter. So for her birthday, I made her this.
Have you ever wished you could have a huge, luscious, rich, gooey, chocolatey brownie for under 100 calories? If you just screamed yes and began licking your computer screen then A. Stop, that's disgusting. B. It may be time for you to chill out about the calorie counting, but if that's what floats your boat then cool beans because... C. Today is your lucky day!
Do you remember the ultimate moistness of Grandma's famous banana bread muffins? How about the ultimate carrot cake muffins? Well, prepare yourself for a triple deja vu then, because the banana bread, the carrot cake, and this zucchini cake are all based on Grandma's ultimate recipe. Perfected over the years to become the moist and delicious work of art that it is today.
I know. You guys are always so surprised whenever I post something that has less than five pounds of sugar in the recipe. Don't worry, I sugared up the cashews. We're good.
