Autumn

I don’t know about you, but i have been in such a “cozy” mood lately.
I crave pumpkin, apple, chai, cinnamon, sweet potato everything!  Makes me want to curl up in a cozy sweater, read a good book and drink a warm cup of tea.
My Family have been requesting i make this salted caramel date loaf again. (On my list of treats to make Paleo so i can enjoy it too!)
I think it’s a lovely loaf and the color is perfect for Autumn.

And of course, it helps that my family raved on how delicious it was 😉

Last night, i made a Paleo Coconut, Banana and Raspberry loaf and oh. my. goodness.
It was amazing after cooling for a bit, but i had a slice this morning and it was simply. perfection.
This will become a go-to loaf for me.  Thinking of maybe trying different variations like chunks of apple, chocolate chips, blueberries, swapping the banana for pumpkin or applesauce, etc.

Although i dislike the cold, there is just something about Autumn that i adore.

Muffins, sunbutter and rhubarb

I love spending my time in the kitchen.
Yesterday, i spent all afternoon making muffins, sunflower butter and washing then cutting up 15c. (120oz.) of fresh rhubarb from the garden (mmm! i love rhubarb!)
Will definitely be baking something with rhubarb soon 😀

My muffins, sadly, turned out badly. so very, very badly.
I don’t eat grains so i had to make my own Baking Powder… Well, i’m going to have to figure out how to use it cause it made my muffins super salty/baking soda flavor.   I literally gag on them it’s so bad! i’m so embarrassed and sad! I know for a fact that i followed the recipe 100%, minus the 1/4c. coconut oil that someone forgot to list when to add in the recipe so i forgot about it. but i doubt that would cause the major explosion of baking soda flavor?? I’ll have to play with the homemade baking powder.. see if i have to omit the baking soda/something in the recipe when i use it.

On the bright side, My sunflower butter turned out out Perfectly! so yummy!!
And i happily snacked on rhubarb while i cut it up 🙂

well, I’m going to clean my room, clean up my sisters clothes (re-fold everything) and tidy up her stuff.  Maybe have a nap after that… mmm
