How is it already the end of April? Yipeee for May this week.


This cornbread recipe is soft and moist- and guess what? It doesn’t contain any gluten, grains, soy, nuts or dairy!

I’ve been having a ball in the kitchen experimenting with coconut oil and I’m excited to share this successful recipe with you guys.


I added a touch of cinnamon, orange zest and chocolate chips just because…well, by now I think you all know I can’t simply just create a plain Jane recipe. No sir. I’m always tossing a few different odds n’ ends into my recipes to make them unique and fun for your taste buds.

Now grab that organic cornmeal and get to work.


You’ve gotta fabulous desert waiting for you right here.
