It all Comes Down to Pizza

Pin It DLD: Pizza Dough & Pizza

I first published a recipe for pizza dough on this blog four years ago. Back then my wife and I were living in Idaho Falls, my wife had just started her internship at EIRMC, and I was looking for a full-time job. My oldest son was less than a year old, and life was a whole lot simpler, but not necessarily better. A lot has changed since then, but one thing has remained constant—I love pizza!!!!

Coconut Flour Waffles - Take 2

Pin It DLD: Coconut Flour Waffles (Take 2)

I have a slightly uncomfortable confession to make—I don't like coconut flour waffles. This being said, the reason is mainly that I don't need to like coconut flour waffles. I make them for my two oldest children who need to avoid starch. So when I first posted a recipe for coconut flour waffles, I was making waffles for kids who had never had anything better. I also wasn't too concerned with the flavor being amazing because they always drenched their waffles in sugar-free syrup anyway and wouldn't be able to discern the flavor of the waffle. However, in the years since I first posted that recipe it has gotten an amazing reception on Pinterest, and I have recently gotten some comments on it which made me doubt the excellence of the recipe. I don't want any of the recipes on this blog to be subpar, so I humbly submit to you a new, improved recipe for coconut flour waffles which hopefully will tickle your taste buds and please your palate.

Banana Bread

Pin It DLD: Banana Bread

When I was growing up, banana bread was one of those things that I could only ever remember my dad making. When the bananas would start looking so disgusting (to a young child) that they were ready to be thrown away, it was time for Dad to make banana bread. His recipe came from the Betty Crocker cookbook—you know, the one with the red cover—and it was the only recipe for banana bread that was ever made in our house.

The recipe yields 2 loaves, but in a family with 8 bread lovers, those loaves didn't stick around very long. It wasn't quite as bad as "if you blink you missed it," but it was close. Nowadays, with my family it lasts longer, but only because my little boys can't eat it. I still have to exercise restraint to not eat the entire loaf myself......in one sitting.....for real.
