Oatmeal. You know…those little flakes collecting dust in your pantry?

This breakfast is classic but I just HAD to share this recipe. Watching my husband eat this concoction lately inspired me. I tried this combo at work and was all smiles.

But let’s not forget about cranberry orange bread, friends! I think I’m in love.

I was out running errands like a crazy person and actually caught myself daydreaming about curling up next to the Christmas tree with a warm cup of coffee and this recipe. No lie. There’s just something about chopping cranberries that puts me in a merry mood.

Oh yeah…it’s also dairy free and low-fodmap which makes it perfect for family members with food sensitivities! Continue reading

This will be my first year braving the holidays with food restrictions. But I am armed and ready. I have gathered my recipes. I laugh in the face of all things gluten. Bring it on, turkey day.

I made these three times, once as a loaf and twice as muffins. They turn out moist, full of pumpkin flavor, and make great leftovers! You could make them the night before and store in the refrigerator overnight. I personally love to chill them first and then pair them with a warm cup of coffee. Mmm. Continue reading
