Hi, guys! Happy Cyber Monday! How was your Thanksgiving? Mine was really great. I loved being home with family and spending time with friends this past weekend. I also barely thought about work, so it was really nice to unplug and not sit in front of my computer. Of course, it’s back to work today, but I’m feeling rested, refreshed, and ready to blog. That said, here’s my recap of Thanksgiving! This year’s Thanksgiving was…

My favorite fall recipe ever is my Mom’s Apple Crisp. (You may have heard me mention it a few dozen times now on CNC.) It’s so incredibly easy to make, and it always turns out so well (seriously, it’s incredible), so I decided to use her recipe as inspiration for a gluten-free apple crisp. This gluten-free apple crisp is also really easy to make and almost as delicious as my mom’s. I honestly don’t think…

Hi CNC readers! I’m Heather and I’m thrilled to welcome you to the fourth stop on The Dollop Book of Frosting Blog Tour! If you missed the other three stops, no worries, I’ll show you at the end here how you can catch up. Today I’m delighted to be guesting on Carrots ”˜n’ Cake because I’ve been following Tina’s blog for quite some time now. I was first drawn to CNC when I saw that…

I love dessert recipes that are delicious and semi-healthy at the same time. It’s like getting the best of both worlds! Having your carrots and eating your cake too (or something like that)! This recipe for “blueberry pie” is so simple to make and takes just five minutes (or less) to prepare from start to finish. It only requires four ingredients (five if you prefer a sweeter flavor), so you can easily whip it up…

One of the best parts about my job is that I get to make my own schedule. Yesterday, this meant I woke up super early, busted out some work, and then took the rest of the day off to enjoy it. It was a fabulous Friday indeed! Breakfast I started my day with a toasted gluten-free English muffin with Teddie peanut butter and banana slices on top. I also drank half of a glass of…

Hi, friends! Happy Sunday! Last night, I went to my cousin Heidi’s house for dinner and drinks. She and her husband, Matt, just bought a house, so they invited Mal and me, her sister, Meeghan, and her boyfriend, and my sister and her husband over to see their new place. The evening started with a wonderful spread of appetizers. Roasted garlic —> mashed into a paste + olive oil = amazing!!! There was also all…

Yesterday afternoon, Mal and I enjoyed a delicious and very indulgent meal at Max Brenner in Boston. We left with full bellies, big smiles, and agreeing that we must visit again. Awhile back, I was invited to attend a media event at Max Brenner to try their new menu, but, unfortunately, I was unable to attend. The PR folks kindly offered me a chance to try the same sampling menu (available at the media event)…

I cooked a big ol’ butternut squash on Sunday afternoon, so I’ve been sneaking it into meals all week long to use it up. I still have quite a bit left, so I decided to do some baking with it. The end result was quite a tasty treat! Holy goodness, these Butternut White Chocolate Chip Bars are delicious. They’re incredibly soft, moist, and sweet. They actually sort of melt in your mouth with each bite….

Last night, Mal, Murphy, and I enjoyed our first outdoor dinner of the year. Hooray! For some reason, eating outside makes me really happy. Maybe it’s because it reminds me of summer? Or drinking beer? Eating outside (ok, eating in general) also makes Murphy really happy. Did you say CHICKEN!?! On the menu for dinner: barbecue chicken with roasted Brussels sprouts, roasted zucchini, and Sweet Potato Wedges. During dinner, the pug, of course, kept a close watch…
