Clearly I am a muffin enthusiast! I have almost 20 recipes for muffins on my blog and have perfected a gluten free muffin that is fluffy, moist and heavenly. You would never know it's gluten free. I always start with gluten free oat flour and build from there. The rice flours don't always sit well in my tummy, and oat flour has a beautiful light texture.

I never thought I'd make my own nut butters. I'm just not the type. Seriously, you can just pick up a really good and healthy cashew butter at Trader Joe's. So easy. However, I've come to realize that making nut and seed butters is not only fun but kind of addicting. Watching the transformation from crunchy whole nuts to a creamy smooth spread is pretty cool. Plus, all the possible flavor profiles!

Hello strangers! It has been way too long! What a crazy and hectic summer it has been with my poor blog being very neglected. I had two huge freelance projects, a son preparing for his first year in college, a daughter involved with two competitive sports and a husband who works in Palm Springs and commutes to San Diego once a week. Sheesh!

We are definitely a slaw family. It is super easy to make, delicious and versatile. One of my most popular recipes on Virtually Homemade is this Easy Sweet and Spicy Slaw that I made at about this exact time last year.

You have to admit that a juicy piece of crispy golden brown fried chicken is an an indulgence you must make from time to time. I mean, it's just so darn tasty. Although not healthy, if you keep your indulgences to a minimum, I say who cares!
