These gluten free pie pops are the perfect back to school (or work) snack for kids – be they small ones or big ones. Perfectly flaky, buttery gluten free pie crust pastry meets simple, but yummy strawberry jam filling – in a dessert-snack that couldn’t be easier to make! (Psst, there’s a video with step-by-step instructions, as well!)
I always start brainstorming for a post by asking myself: “What do I want to talk about?” And I usually come up with pretty random things. But today… today, nothing strikes my fancy.
I could talk about the two fluffy squirrels I’ve seen today on my way from lunch (they were cute and fluffy and they made me laugh because they were just so darn clumsy), I could moan about it being August and so bloody cold, I could talk about that one recipe that really didn’t work (didn’t work so much it was hilarious… after the initial meltdown).
This gluten free blueberry pie will blow you away with just how delicious it is. It’s everything sweet and buttery – comfort food at its best. And it’s really easy to make, as well! The perfect gluten free dessert for your next family gathering, potluck or picnic (if you can part with it, that is). And you totally want to read the recipe to discover my SUPER USEFUL TRICK for rolling out the pie crust without it sticking, and getting it into the pie dish without tearing!
It’s the beginning of August, and there’s already been talk of Christmas. That’s amazing… and also completely and utterly bonkers. Christmas!!! Let me reiterate: it’s the beginning of August. The only thing I want to think about is sun, ice cream and way too much watermelon.
These matcha no bake energy bites pack both a wake-up and a nutritional punch. The matcha powder provides a gentle dose of caffeine, while the rest of the ingredients ensure that you get a nice balance of carbs, protein and healthy fats with this tasty snack, as well as plenty of vitamins and minerals. (Psst, there’s a video with step-by-step instructions, as well!)
Do you like Mondays? I know I don’t. When I think of Mondays, I think of a Disneyesque character (a villain, obviously) cackling evilly and shrilly screaming: “Monday mornings are eeeearly mornings! Monday mornings are eeeearly mornings!”
These pistachio raspberry homemade energy bars taste like dessert but are the perfect quick healthy snack. They are super easy and quick to prepare with only 6 ingredients and 20 minutes of active preparation time. (Psst, there’s a video with step-by-step instructions, as well!)
It’s been a crazy week round here. Actually, the last few
weeks months have been crazy. Whoever said that starting a blog in the first year of your PhD was a piece of cake was… actually, I doubt anyone has ever said that. Because, honestly, who could possibly be insane enough to do it?
Yep. That’s right. Me. *facepalm*
