Blueberry Lemon Poppy Seed Muffins Vegan Gluten-free

Blueberry, Lemon & Poppy Seed Muffins {vegan, gf}

I am in no way inclined to move. Only my fingers move as they type these words. Only my eyes move as they read them. Aside from these, my body is stationary. Just how I like it. The thought of blogging these blueberry, lemon and poppy seed muffins got me out of bed this morning,…

Dutch Spiced Blondie Bars Gluten-Free

Dutch Spiced Blondie Bars {gf}

“Every person needs to take one day away. A day in which one consciously separates the past from the future. Jobs, family, employers, and friends can exist one day without any one of us, and if our egos permit us to confess, they could exist eternally in our absence. Each person deserves a day away…

Chocolate & Raspberry Almond Cake {gf/df}

Flourless Pear & Chocolate Cake {gf/df}

Raspberry Almond Muffins with Cacao Nibs & Citrus {gf/df}

I read an article the other day that said that successful people don’t do chores all weekend. I like that! Rather, they socialise and get exercise; in other words, unwind. Recharging is good for the mind, body and soul, and is the real rest that God meant when He instituted the Sabbath as a creation…
