Gluten Free Peanut Butter Kisses

One suggestion when making these Gluten Free cookies: double the batch!

They are so good that they just don’t last long.

Hannah made a batch this year for Christmas as we are reducing gluten from our diet.

I plan on making them for special treats throughout the year.

She followed the delicious recipe from Janelle at Comfy in the Kitchen.

Zucchini Brownies

Got zucchini?

We found this recipe in the flier of a local market. Very easy.

And…it is Gluten-free. Yay!

Hannah made it yesterday. It is just about gone already. It isn’t a typical brownie though.

Tastes somewhere between a brownie and chocolate mousse.

Gooey…Eat it with a fork!

Homemade Chocolate Syrup

Have you ever wanted to make your own sundae syrup?

Or perhaps a syrup to mix into milk? Try this recipe!

It tastes delicious. No preservatives or chemical additives.

HOWEVER, it does contain sugar. Sadness.

We use it as an occasional treat around here.

Princess made a batch to drizzle over the Creamy Hot Chocolate Mix she recently mixed together.

You know… it would taste great drizzled over Liquid Christmas too.
