*Guest Writer -Holiday Spiced Caramel Snickerdoodle Muffins

Its bean at least a year since I wrote a blog. A lot has happened since then. I turned 10 four months ago. It’s bean a blast at the age of 10. I’m now a basketball player. My team name is the Edmonton Lakers. In school, I’m now learning geometry and pre-algebra. It’s tough, but…

Cravings for Chocolate Cake

Inevitably, on the weekends all the food that I shouldn’t be eating starts calling me… sometimes I give in and sometimes I get in the kitchen and experiment.  Usually, if determined enough, an alternative to sugar laden, carb explosive foods can be found or invented. This weekend I wanted all the chocolate cake. Like, SERIOUSLY,…

Guest Writer!*

*For part of our homeschooling adventures, Master 9 tried his hand at blogging today.  I think he did a pretty good job!  Hope you enjoy his take on Winging It By Grace. xx Hi, I am today’s guest writer. My mom writes this blog. Sometimes I read it. I am 9 years old. I like…

Sunshine and Lemons

Yesterday morning we awoke to sunshine streaming through the curtains and blue skies.  I also found I had an abundance of lemons in the fridge that needed to be used asap. What to do, what to do… why Lemon Meringue Pie of course! This pie is delicious!  I love the tartness of the lemon curd paired with…

To Post or Not to Post…

I’m sitting here with a piece of imperfect cake trying to decide whether to post the recipe or not.  You see it’s very yummy, but it didn’t meet my expectations.  This is what happens when you make up recipes sometimes.  I think I’ll keep messing around with the recipe until it’s perfect. Here’s a little…

Starting with a BANG! and Cookies!

Our morning yesterday started with a BANG! Literally.  Well, more of a screeeeechhhh, BANG, metal crunching and sliding start to the day. We were enjoying a much needed sleep in on a long weekend Monday when we were so rudely awakened.  We rushed outside to find someone had crashed into and completely obliterated our neighbor’s…

The Easiest Doughnuts In the Whole Wide World… Really

Winging my baking… by grace!  Ha, I even do this! Last night, we wanted a treat.  It was a cold evening, deserving of something warm, luxurious and extremely bad for you. Something FRIED…  so I whipped up a batch of my famous Doughnuts. These are not traditional yeast-risen doughnuts, or even a cake based one….

Glorious Cinnamon Rolls… Mmmmm

Step One to making everything better on a not so great day: FOOD. Sugar, Carbohydrates and Fat…. yes, it’s a temporary fix but one that for some people (ME!) helps.  Now I am not talking processed, chemically enhanced super market junk here.  Though in a pinch if you so desire – go for it!  I…
