Chocolate Chip Bread

Chocolate Chip Bread is a dessert or snack your kids are sure to love! Let’s just keep it real. Everyone will love this chocolate chip bread. It is a treat big and little kids will enjoy. 

Chocolate Chip Bread

Quick breads are great because they make a delicious snack, dessert, or even special breakfast treat. 

I have made various versions this bread for years, but I recently realized that I had never shared one with you. I knew I needed to fix that by sharing my favorite chocolate chip bread. 

And not only am I sharing my recipe, I am also sharing how I make it gluten free. The gluten free chocolate chip bread is so good. No one will know that it is gluten free!

Chocolate Chip Bread

What exactly is chocolate chip bread? 

This bread is a quick bread. It a cross between a cake and a muffin baked in a loaf pan. It is more of a dessert or snack, but my kids have been known to eat it for breakfast. Although it is definitely more of a special treat breakfast. 

Chocolate Chip Bread

Can I make gluten free chocolate chip bread?

Yes, this bread is delicious gluten free. In fact the gluten free version is so good that no one will know that it is gluten free. 

Can chocolate chip bread be made ahead?

Yes, this is a great recipe to make ahead because it freezes great. If you keep desserts like this in the freezer you can have an easy dessert anytime.

Just make the bread as directed, let it cool completely, wrap it up well, and freeze it. You can also slice the bread and freeze one or two pieces per package. You can then take it out for lunches or snacks.

Peanut Butter Free No Bake Cookies

Classic no bake cookies made without peanut butter! If you had to give up no bake cookies because of a peanut allergy these Peanut Butter Free No Bake Cookies are for you. They are the classic no bake cookies without the peanut butter. 

Peanut Butter Free No Bake Cookies

I have been making no bake cookies since I was a kid. They were one of the first recipes that I learned to make and I have made them many times since then.

They are one of my favorite cookies to make and to eat!

No bake cookies make a perfect summertime cookie. Kids love them. At least all the kids I know love them. 

Peanut Butter Free No Bake Cookies-

I love that no bake cookies do not require you to use an oven. That is something I look for in a summertime dessert, but really these are a quick and easy cookie to make anytime of the year.

Can I make no bake cookies without peanut butter? 

Yes, you can make no bake cookies without peanut butter and today I am sharing how I turned a classic no bake cookie into a peanut butter free no bake cookie. 

The recipe that I have been making for years comes from my mom, and it contained peanut butter.

Peanut Butter Free No Bake Cookies-

It was one of those recipes that I knew I was going to miss when my daughter developed her peanut allergy back in 2010, but then I started wondering why if I could make them without peanut butter.

I figured that the worst that could happen would be that they might be a little dry or have a slightly different texture. I decided to give my mom’s no bake recipe, that I had been making for years, a try without the peanut butter.

Peanut Butter Free No Bake Cookies-

I simply followed my mom’s recipe, but left out the peanut butter. 

Well, okay I added a few chocolate chips, but they are the same basic recipe. I thought the chocolate chips might help the texture since I took out the peanut butter. Plus more chocolate is always a good thing!

They turned out so good without the peanut butter. I was a little surprised at how well they turned out. We loved them.

Even those that can eat peanut butter enjoy these. I make these all the time and everyone enjoys them. Both those that are peanut free and those that aren’t. 

Can I make no bake cookies gluten free? 

If you are gluten free, you can easily make no bake cookie gluten free by using gluten free oats. Make sure your chocolate chips are gluten free as well. Most are but always read labels. 

Can I make no bake cookies dairy free?

Yes, you can make no bake cookies dairy free? I have made them dairy free and it works great. I shared my dairy free no bake cookie recipe a few years ago and it is one of my daughter’s favorite quick and easy dairy free desserts to make. 

No Bake Cookies without Peanut Butter

If you need an easy and delicious dessert for those with a peanut allergy these no bake cookies are delicious!

Everyday Favorites

Save me the Plums and Muffins

Can you believe that it is June already?! I hope you are having a great summer so far.

I know that it is technically not summer yet, but it is June which pretty much feels like summer, especially if you are in the southern part of the U.S. Hot and humid weather is already here…

It has been way too long since I did an Everyday Adventures post or an Everyday Favorites post.

I enjoy sharing these posts because they are a look into my everyday life and things that I am loving that I don’t always have time to share. Things like the book Save Me the Plums

I love it when my love of food and reading come together. If you remember Gourmet magazine, especially from the early 2000’s, or love food memoirs, Save Me the Plums is a must read.

Not only is this a book about Ruth Reichl’s time at Gourmet Magazine, it is a book about the publishing world, NYC, and food. I loved it so much that I included it in our list of favorite nonfiction books for summer

If you are looking for a new muffin recipe the muffins in the picture are my gluten free lemon yogurt muffins. They are delicious! 

Oklahoma has made the news a lot lately and not for a good reason. The weather here this spring, especially the last month has been crazy. Rain, storms, tornadoes, more rain. more tornadoes, and a lot of flooding. 

I stepped outside for a few minutes after one of the storms last week and saw this rainbow. It was a welcome sight after all the crazy weather. 

This product is something I never thought I would be sharing as a new favorite. 

I don’t like tea and I don’t like beer. As in I really, really, don’t like the taste of them. Kombucha tastes like a combination of those two things and I have struggled with finding a Kombucha that I like.

It either has a strong tea taste or a strong fermented beer taste. 

Over the last year I have taken four rounds of very strong antibiotics for diverticulitis. I am thankful for the antibiotics and that they kept me from serious permanent damage, but between the diverticulitis and the antibiotics my gut health is a mess. 

Kumbucha is supposed to be good for gut health, so I am learning to enjoy it. After trying a lot of different brands I can easily say that Humm is my favorite. I still don’t love it, but it has made a huge difference for me. I can definitely tell the difference when I drink it and when I don’t. 

Humm is made in Oregon. If you live on the West Coast you can find it all kinds of places. The only place I have found it in Oklahoma is at Target. If you have tried Kumbucha and had trouble liking it, give Humm a try. The apple berry, the pomegranate lemonade, and the strawberry lemonade are my favorite flavors. 

If you have had diverticulitis and have any tips for me I would love to hear them. After having it twice in a year I hope to never have it again…

Boxed mac and cheese has never been my favorite, but a couple of my kids love it. I bought some of the ALDI gluten free mac and cheese a few weeks ago and it is really good. Or maybe I should say it is really good for a gluten free boxed mac and cheese.

ALDI is kind of like Costco when it comes to food finds though. Often times you find something you love and they never stock again. I am really hoping that this is something that ALDI continues to carry. 

I love finding new things at ALDI. If you shop there what great finds have you found recently? 

A few weeks ago my husband attended a course for work that was in Missouri. When I found out it was at a resort on Table Rock Lake, I decided the whole family needed to go with him. It was only a few days, but it was a great trip with lots of time for relaxing and having fun. 

I was able to get in a lot of reading. One of the books I read was Inheritance by Dani Shapiro. I could not put this book down. It is a fascinating well written memoir. I will share a full review of it soon over on From Our Bookshelf

Most people would probably not consider it a summer read, but it made for a great vacation read for me. 

Speaking of books I got to meet Anne Bogel of Modern Mrs. Darcy! Anne did an event at Magic City Books in Tulsa and my daughter and I decided to go. It was a great event and it was so fun to meet her. 

Anne and I have both been blogging forever. We both blogged back in the days where blogging was a lot different than it is today. I think I found Anne’s site back in her first year of blogging and it was fun to finally meet her. 

I also got to meet Chelsey and Curtis of He Read She Read which was a nice surprise. 

Triple Berry Spinach Salad

I have been making this Triple Berry Spinach Salad at least once a week. It is one of my favorite salads to make this time of year. I have served it to company twice recently. It is easy to make and everyone loves it.

You can make it with three kinds of berries like the recipe calls for or you can make it with just strawberries, just blueberries, or just raspberries. You can also add chicken to make it a main dish salad. 

We are having some friends over this weekend and I think I am going to change it up and serve my tomato salad. It is another easy summer salad to make. 

I hope you have a great day and a great weekend! Be sure to take some time to enjoy some delicious food! 

12 Easy Gluten Free Dairy Free Recipes

Do you eat gluten free and dairy free? Or do you know someone that eats gluten free and dairy free? I am sharing some of our favorite gluten free dairy free recipes with you.

They are so good that no one will know they are gluten and dairy free. 

Gluten Free Dairy Free Recipes

Gluten free dairy free can be challenging, especially when it comes to baking. When you change the gluten and the dairy it changes the chemistry of the recipe which often gives you a totally different taste and texture. 

Gluten free dairy free eating can be delicious though. It can be food that your whole family will enjoy. 

One of my daughters eats mainly dairy free. I say mainly because it is not an allergy. She just feels better when she eats dairy free. Over the last few years I have adapted and changed up many of our favorite recipes to make them dairy free for her. 

Today I put together a list of some of our favorite gluten free and dairy free recipes. I hope that you enjoy them.

If you do not eat gluten and dairy free, but you know someone that does feel free to share this list with them. I want to help others make gluten free dairy free eating easy and delicious!

Pizza Salad

Pizza Salad is a quick and easy dinner your family is sure to love. It is a fun and delicious dinner to change up your regular pizza night.

Pizza Salad

If you have read my site for long you know I love quick and easy recipes. You probably also know that I love salad. I also love making salads that my whole family will love. In other words meaty main dish type salads.

We eat a lot of salad especially during the warmer months of the year. They are easy to make. They are also a pretty healthy one dish meal that does not require the use of my oven.

I love all those things during the spring and summer.

Pizza Salad

I have been having fun trying all kinds of new salad combinations. Pizza salad was one of the recent ones that I came up with.

We have a pizza pasta salad that we love. I make it all the time during the summer. Today’s version though is a green salad with homemade dressing and all the fun toppings of pizza.

Pizza Salad

We topped our pizza salad with pepperoni, Canadian bacon, cheese, olives, peppers, and tomatoes, but you can easily change this up.

You could add other types of meat or you could make it meatless. Mushrooms would be delicious on this too.

The homemade dressing is what makes this so good. Yes, you could easily use a store bought dressing, but homemade salad dressing is easy to make and tastes so much better. It is well worth taking the time to make it.

Homemade dressing is not hard to make and it tastes so much better than the store bought kind. 

If you need a fun way to change up pizza night this summer make this salad! 

Croutons are optional but delicious. My homemade croutons and my gluten free croutons are both easy to make and are so good on top of this salad or any salad this summer.

Gluten Free Double Chocolate Chip Cookies

Gluten Free Double Chocolate Chip Cookies are so good that no one will know they are gluten free!

Gluten Free Double Chocolate Chip Cookies

Cookies are one of my favorite things to make and to eat. Who doesn’t love a delicious cookie?! Especially a chocolate chip one!

I have been gluten free for almost ten years. In my quest to find the best gluten free cookies I have made a lot of gluten free cookies over the last ten years.  

Gluten Free Double Chocolate Chip Cookies

This gluten free double chocolate cookie is one that I have worked and worked on over the last year. I wanted to get the perfect gluten free double chocolate cookie. 

It had to be full of chocolate with a taste and texture so good that no one would know it was gluten free. 

After quite a bit of work I finally got it just right. These cookies have just the right amount of chocolate with a texture and taste just like a regular gluten filled cookie. 

Gluten Free Double Chocolate Chip Cookies

Can I use a gluten free flour blend in these cookies?

This recipe calls for individual gluten free flours. I have tried a blend in this recipe and it is good, but not as good as it is with the individual flours. The individual flours give it the best taste and texture.

I worked hard to get the right amounts of each individual ingredient. In a blend you can’t control the amount of rice flour vs starch vs gum. 

So yes you can use a gluten free blend, but for the best gluten free double chocolate cookie make the recipe as it I have it. It will give you a cookie that both gluten free and non gluten free eaters will enjoy! 

Can I make these gluten free cookies dairy free? 

I have not tried these dairy free. I am guessing a butter substitute will work, but since I have not tried it I cannot say for sure. I think the taste and texture would be slightly different without the butter though. 

Gluten Free Double Chocolate Chip Cookies

Why does this cookie recipe call for 1 egg and 1 egg yolk? 

This recipe is a little different in that it calls for 1 egg and 1 egg yolk. I know that is a little different, but it works in this recipe. You really need to use that amount. Yes, you could use 1 egg or 2 eggs instead, but the texture will be different. 

This recipe is based on a recipe I use to make all the time. It called for 1 egg and 1 egg yolk. I have tried making it other ways and it wasn’t the same. When I was experimenting with this recipe I tried again and got different results. For best results use the 1 egg and 1 egg yolk. 

What is sweet rice flour? 

I often get asked about the sweet rice flour that I use in many of my desserts. I shared a post several years ago sharing all about what is sweet rice flour and why I love using it in gluten free desserts.

Double chocolate gluten free cookies are so good that no one will know they are gluten free.

Prep Time 10 minutes
Cook Time 12 minutes
Total Time 22 minutes

Ingredients

  • 1 cup white rice flour
  • 1/2 cup sweet rice flour
  • 1/4 cup cornstarch
  • 1/3 cup baking cocoa
  • 1/2 teaspoon xanthan gum
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 12 tablespoons butter, melted
  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1 egg plus 1 egg yolk
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla
  • 2 cups gluten free chocolate chips

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 325.
  2. In a bowl combine rice flour, sweet rice flour, cornstarch, baking cocoa, xanthan gum, baking soda, and salt. Set aside.
  3. In another mixing bowl, combine butter and sugars until well blended.
  4. Add egg, yolk, and vanilla and mix well.
  5. Add dry ingredients and mix until well combined.
  6. Stir in chocolate chips.
  7. Scoop in ¼ c. balls onto cookie sheet. I use an ice cream scoop because we like these to be large bakery style cookies. Place 6 on each cookie sheet. If making large cookies you should only place 6 per sheet because these are large cookies and they spread out.( If making these cookies smaller reduce the baking time by 2-3 minutes.)
  8. Bake for about 12-14 minutes or until edges are slightly browned.
  9. Let cool on cookie sheet for 2-3 minutes. Remove to wire rack to finish cooling.

Strawberry Cobbler Recipe

Need an easy old fashioned dessert perfect for spring and summer? Strawberry cobbler is easy to make, tastes great, and is a great dessert to make during strawberry season. 

Strawberry Cobbler

Strawberry cobbler has been a favorite dessert in our family for years. We love making strawberry cobbler during the spring and summer.

When I saw a recipe years ago in Paula Deen’s magazine for strawberry cobbler I knew I needed to try it. 

I grew up picking and eating strawberries, yet I do not remember ever having a strawberry cobbler. We ate peach, blackberry, and other types of cobbler, but never strawberry.

However, once I tried strawberry cobbler it quickly become a favorite. I still make blackberry, blueberry, and other cobbler recipes, but strawberry cobbler is perfect for strawberry season. 

I have adapted the recipe over the years, but it is the same basic idea.

Strawberry Cobbler

What Is a Cobbler Exactly?

The answer to what exactly is a cobbler is kind of complicated. Some people will tell you that a cobbler has a biscuit topping while a crisp or crumble has a streusel topping, usually made with oats. 

I think the answer to what is a cobbler is regional. In Oregon where I grew up, pretty much any dessert that was fruit with a crumb, streusel, or biscuit like topping was called a cobbler.

Most of the cobblers made on the west coast actually don’t have a biscuit like topping. They are usually made with more of a streusel or cake like topping. 

The southern and eastern parts of the U.S. are known more for the biscuit like topping on a cobbler. But streusl toppings are popular as well. 

The term cobbler has become a pretty general term for a fruit dessert with a cake, biscuit, or streusel topping. It doesn’t matter if you call them cobbler, crisps, or crumbles, they are a delicious dessert. 

Strawberry Cobbler

How To Make a Cobbler

Most cobblers, this recipe is quick and easy to make. Most cobblers have a bottom mixture of fruit and sugar. You then place the crumble streusal mixture on top and bake it.

Cobblers are best served warmed with a little ice cream, but feel free to eat it however you want to.

Strawberry Cobbler

Can I Make Gluten Free Strawberry Cobbler? 

Yes you can make strawberry cobbler gluten free. I include the directions below. You use gluten free oats and a gluten free flour blend and you will have a delicious gluten free dessert. 

When Is Strawberry Season? 

California and Florida have a much longer strawberry season than most other parts of the U.S. For most areas of the U.S. May and June are prime Strawberry season.

In the southern part of the U.S you can find strawberries in late April and into May. In the more northern states strawberry season is usually June and can continue in the early July.
