How to make a quilted mug rug:

I just got the call, and I’m so excited!  My new dining room table is scheduled to be delivered next week.  Which is a good thing, because I’ve already sold my old table and chair set, lol. We’d had the old set since my oldest was a baby so it was very “well loved”, and if you can believe it, some of the worst marks on the table came from the use of plastic placemats!

Start your morning off right with this refined sugar and gluten-free Flourless Banana Pancakes recipe.  The recipe is just 3 ingredients and is super easy to make. Even though the pancakes don’t quite taste like a traditional pancake, I think you will enjoy this flourless pancake recipe.

No one in my family is following a gluten-free diet, but it never hurts to cut back on processed foods and refined sugar when you can.

We’re all a year older and hopefully a year smarter too.  (Except for me, I’ve been the same age for several years now, lol!)

When it comes to wrapping up the year, the “top 10” post is one of my favorite activities to do.  I love looking back at everything I’ve published throughout the year and reviewing what was successful and what wasn’t.  It is always such a surprise.

 

Many food bloggers cook recipes just for their blog, but I do so many other things on my site, I don’t really consider myself a food blogger.
