This past week was a weird one for me, and I’m looking forward to this week’s fresh start. Monday, and muffins, are being embraced whole-heartedly.

I’ve been battling a pretty bad cold for the past week, and it’s left me exhausted, coughing, sneezing, and worst of all – uninspired. Finally, on Thursday and Friday, I just let myself be sick.

This hearty bread is gluten-free and refined sugar free.Soo…I’m calling this Paleo Carrot Bread, because that’s what it is and it’s SEO friendly and decently descriptive, but I really wanted to call this Sunshine Bread. My sister actually came up with the idea for a carrot tumeric bread when she was helping me recipe brainstorm over the holidays, I wrote “sunshine bread!” with the description, and the idea has been stuck in my head ever since.

I was predicting it would turn out to be a beautiful golden color thanks to the tumeric, grated carrots, and golden raisins. However, the coconut sugar derailed my colors plans and the bread turned a more rusty orange color – not as “sunshine-y” and I had envisioned, and the name didn’t fit as well as I had planned. Also, sunshine bread is not descriptive at all.

Of course, I’m having the absolute time of my life, traveling to new and exotic cities every weekend, eating way too much delicious food (if there is such a thing), spending time with my best friends, and completely exhausting myself in the process.

Chocolate week continues!! This recipe has actually already been posted on Bakerita in it’s chocolate almond form.

This recipe came about when my family had some company coming over, so as per usual I was debating about the dessert menu. I just couldn’t decide what to make! My dad requested something chocolate and gluten-free, and I gave him the option of Dark Chocolate Almond Meringue Cookies or Chocolate Fudge Crinkle Cookies. He said he wanted the meringue cookies, but with fresh cherries in them. [Read more…]
