There’s a local antique shop in town that has a variety of items, from world war relics and period clothing to old dolls and kitchenwares. They also occasionally have some incredible finds, such as newspapers from the day of the first moonwalk or the day Pearl Harbor was bombed, or 105 year-old home medical and

For Valentine’s Day, I was going to make a post about diabetic-friendly brownies, but the first batch tasted like crap, so I decided to take a bit more time to perfect the recipe (or at least make them taste less like sweetened dirt and more like actual chocolate baked goods).

“Christmas” means something slightly different to everyone. For some, it’s a time of community traditions and religious celebration. For others, it’s a family time, where loved ones gather around their own traditions. For others still, like myself, we really don’t have much in the way of tradition, or we did at one point, but as

I love lemon baked goods at any time of year, though my biggest struggle is making baked goods “healthy” (although those guilt-free “fudge” brownies I made are probably the best example to date). I love sweets, but as I’m getting older, they’ve started sticking to me a bit and more and more of my friends

Vegan Banana Nut Muffins

Comments : 3 Posted in : baking, banana, diet, easy, fruit, healthy, muffin, nut, recipe, Uncategorized, vegan on by : Jeanette Schramm

I don’t usually dabble much in vegan foods because I always thought that ingredients would be expensive and hard to find, plus I like my meats and cheeses too much. While the latter half of that statement hasn’t changed, after realizing mid-recipe I was out of eggs, I gave the subject some thought. Ingredients in

I love peanut butter, so when I saw this recipe for peanut butter-based brownies on 12 Tomatoes, I got really excited. What’s even better, I had time to make them before a football party at a friend’s place, in Sunday. I had all the ingredients I needed, too, except for the peanut butter chips. Worried
