Easy gluten-free baking thanks to Trader Joes'! Their pumpkin bread & muffin baking mix allows you to make our house smell warm and delicious! I love using their baking mix as base for desserts and snacks like this pumpkin walnut pecan bread. The crumble topping makes this even more delicious!

Almond Jello – Perfect for hot weather

Yes, that's right, almond jello! Made with whatever milk your choose! Great for parties, summer bbq, or just for snack on at home. Growing up I looked forward to the summer activities because I knew I would find a huge bowl of almond jello on the table. Almond jello is great alone or top it off with fruit cocktail or your favorite seasonal fruit! Come join me as I share one of my summer staples with you!
