Hi there!

Because this archive had become rather large and unwieldy, I’ve compiled all of my favorite recipes/techniques/posts on a separate page: The Essentials. I advise checking that out first, then coming back here if you still haven’t found what you’re looking for.

Thanks for visiting!

  1. WOW!! So many recipes! I found your website after sharing a pin on Pinterest. It was your banana bread! Thank you for sharing all these recipes. I made this site a favorite so I won’t lose it :)

  2. I love, love, love your web site. Your recipes are wonderfully displayed. My only concern is it takes so much ink to print them. Could there be just one picture and the recipe? I know it’s a lot to ask, but I’m out of ink every 6-7 recipes. :( Great job, I recommend it to everyone.

    • Betty! There is an option to click at the top to remove images! I feel so bad that you have wasted so much paper and ink. I wish this option were more visible. When you’re in the printfriendly window, too, if you roll your mouse over the paragraphs, it gives you the option to delete them. Let me know if you have any other questions about this.

  3. I came across a link to your website on pinterest. I’ve just quickly gone through your recipies here. Well, not so quickly. I’ll be back again and again I’m sure. This is awesome. What brought me to your website was a photo of “Buttermilk Pecan Coffee Cake”. Unfortunately I cannot find the photo nor the recipe any where on your web site. It looks like the link was made a few years ago. Is this recipe still available? Please help; it looks delicious! Thank you, Denise

  4. Hello again, I checked out the “Essential” section of your website. Wow! How wonderful! I love your recipies. Thank you! Well, I came across the recipe I was looking for. It is titled Quintessential Coffee Cake. I’m so glad I found it. Thank you again!

    • Hi Denise! So happy you found what you were looking for and so sorry for this very delayed response — I was in VA beach with my fam for the week and got a little behind in my responding. Thank you for all of your nice comments. Good luck with the cake!

  5. I came across your website while looking for ways to use up some buttermilk. Then, I spent the next hour salivating from one recipe to another. Each time I pulled up a recipe, another image/link to another would draw me further in. I finally am cutting myself off for the day. Everything looks so delicious. I love to bake and can’t wait to try the dozens of recipes I’ve already looked at. Now, instead of just using up the leftover buttermilk, I’ll probably have to go get some more (and other ingredients) to make the other recipes!

    Thanks so much for taking the time to post so many beautiful pictures and recipes!

    • Jenny, thank you so much for this nice comment. I can’t tell you how happy this makes me feel. I hope you find success with some of the recipes that are catching your eye. Look forward to hearing from you!

  6. I came across your website via Pinterest and WOW! I’ve already printed and planned 3 recipes! Thanks for taking the time to share!!

  7. Oh my goodness, I have just found the loveliest recipe site I have ever seen. Every recipe is a gem, and I love the commentary that goes along with it. It’s going to take me several, delicious hours to see it all. You are such a clever girl!!!

  8. Wow! Just found you from a Nom Nom. Paleo FB post. LOVE your site! Such great descriptions, pictures and oh, oh, oh, the recipes! Looking forward to trying many. Thank you for sharing! I have dairy goats so the yogurt and cheese sections look awesome….never thought to whip the yogurt….can’t wait to try it. And my husband is a big blue cheese dressing fan….will have to suprise him with the recipe here! Exciting!

    • Thank you so much for your kind words, Shannon! I hope you do find some recipes you like. And thank you for letting me know about the Nom Nom Paleo post — that was really nice of her!

      Thanks for writing in. Let me know if you have any questions!

  9. I just stumbled across your website and I am blown away by everything you have made. Every recipe sounds so delicous; I cannot wait to try them all. My husband is going to be very greatful for your talents! Thank you so much for all of your hard work!!
