SCRUPMTIOUS SIDES! Macaroni and Cheese

WHAT?! MACARONI AND CHEESE?! YES! Of course! It wouldn’t be the holidays without this luscious, creamy, pasta-y, cheesy goodness we all know and love. In fact, a bad macaroni and cheese has been known to ruin an otherwise delicious family dinner (same thing with mashed potatoes, but that’s for another post). Thankfully, this macaroni and…

WHAT’S FOR BREAKFAST? Pumpkin Pancakes/ Waffles

I know I’m really pushing the pumpkin here, but I don’t think you guys understand that I LIVE for this time of year. I love to dress in layers, eat soup, go holiday shopping, decorate, and put pumpkin in everything. I really do. And since I can really only enjoy one of those things at…

APPS ALL AROUND! Queso Blanco

This is literally the easiest vegan queso blanco recipe ever. So easy, in fact, I’m not even going to add a story to it. Just know that you can thank my queso cravings for this one. P.S. This is perfect for your Game Day bash, ESPECIALLY if you have any vegan attendees. I got you…

SCRUPMTIOUS SIDES! Pumpkin Cornbread

Now, I know I said I would keep Scrumptious Sides to 5 ingredients or less, but I had to make an exception for this. It’s practically impossible to come up with a delicious, gluten-free, allergen-friendly cornbread recipe with just 5 ingredients. Too many substitutions. It might be possible, but I have yet to come up…

COOKIE CORNER! Double Chocolate Crinkles

Alright, my first cookie recipe! I love making these cookies because everyone loves chocolate and everyone loves sugar, so the fact that they’re basically a chocolate ball rolled in powdered sugar makes them practically irresistible. One quick note about these cookies is that they are an oil-based cookie, so they are automatically dairy free. In…

Dunkin Donuts Already Started Selling Pumpkin Spice Lattes…

And you know what that means!!!! The holidays are fast approaching! YAY! Now, I know some of you are already stressed out because I know I am. We’ve already started making plans with family and friends for Thanksgiving and Christmas and it’s only August. And as November gets closer, we all know the stress is…

Spinach Dip (Always A Crowd Pleaser)

You know how each family has their own little food traditions that everyone follows, NO MATTER WHAT? Yeah? Well, ours is spinach dip. And it’s not just any type of spinach dip. You can’t buy this spinach dip in the store. No. You have to make it. Well, not you specifically. Just any family member…

My Favorite Waffle Recipe (GF, DF, & NF)

When I found out I had developed wheat, oat, and rice allergies, I was super devastated. I loved all the breakfast foods from pancakes, to waffles, to my favorite, french toast. Learning that I had to give all of that up brought my spirit to a dark place. It’s been a while now since I’ve…

Who Puts Breadcrumbs in Turkey Burgers?!

*This post/ list stems from many personal experiences. The title of this post comes from my latest encounter. Seriously, I was so offended that I just couldn’t let this one slip between my fingers. I guess you could say that this was the last straw that FINALLY broke the camel’s back.* Dear Friends, If you…

Turkey and Dumplings

Now, I love leftovers as much as the next person, but it’s very hard to bring myself to eat the same thing again for the 3rd day in a row. I need variety! I need spice! I need varying textures and flavors and all that crap! I need to drag myself back into the kitchen…

Gluten-Free Cornbread Apple Pie

This recipe was inspired by all of my favorite foods just thrown into one dish. It only just so happened to be gluten free as well. I love apple pie, I love cornbread, and I love french toast. I got the idea to replace the flour in the crust with cornmeal because I thought it…

Daily Mumblers: HOLIDAY EDITION

Ah, the holiday season… A supposedly wonderful time reserved for family, friends, and never-ending get togethers. It is a time for making plans, exchanging gifts, and gorging on all of the food until you hate yourself. During the months of November and December, people come alive and finally consider putting the less fortunate first. In…
