Pumpkin Snacking Cake (Gluten/Grain Free)

This recipe doesn't really need an introduction does it? I just felt like adapting one of my Paleo/Primal Cake recipes to a pumpkin cake with less sugar. I just want to snack on pumpkin food and feel healthy about it.

100 grams almond or cashew butter
60 grams 100% organic coconut cooking cream (oil)
1 tablespoon vanilla extract
1/3 cup honey
2-3 eggs
1/3 cup pumpkin, roasted pureed
1 Tablespoon cinnamon powder
1 teaspoon ginger, ground
1/2 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice/all spice
1/2 cup desicated coconut (finely ground coconut)
2 tablespoons soy protein powder (soy is not a grain)
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda

Melt butters and oils and honey together over low heat or in the microwave. Let cool. Blend in eggs, vanilla and roasted pureed pumpkin. Mix together dry ingredients and add to wet mixture. Blend well. Pour into prepared pan ( I used a pie tin with a sheet of parchment paper) and bake in oven at 175-C (350-F) degrees for 30-35 minutes. Remove from oven and cool completely.

This is a healthy snacking cake so to make it a bit sweeter or fattier - it's very good served with butter or honey butter. Lately, I've been whipping my honey butter using the 100% organic coconut cooking cream in place of cow butter. It's really delicious especially when you add some other simple ingredients to it like cinnamon and a hint of maple extract (Mapleine).

Best Streets to Trick or Treat in Dixie, Southern Utah

This is going to have to be an ongoing post... what I mean, is I might have to update it again next year.

This is going to be a very big deal this year. My kids have never experienced real American Trick or Treating. I have talked about it, and they have seen it on tv shows over the years and they are very excited. As am I!

This is why I wanted to pick a neighborhood that would be awesome for their first experience. Originally, I had planned to spend the weekend with my brother and his family in Spanish Fork, Utah. They live in a neighborhood with about a million kids so it was going to be perfect... but since the flu has affected everyone lately, and since my whole family was sick to death of road trips since we moved back here, we decided to stay in St. George.

This posed a problem for me. I didn't know where the best street was. After a quick google search, I found nothing! No one has blogged about this, at least, not in the first three or four pages of a google search.

I did find …

The Tilted Kiln, St George, Utah... pottery and ceramics!

The Tilted Kiln
215 W St. George Blvd
Hours: Tuesday - Friday 12:00-8:00; Saturday 10:00-6:00

Today the children and I got to play with clay at The Tilted Kiln in St. George. I had driven past this pottery studio many times not realizing all the fun things it has to offer.

It's not just a pottery shop, though there is a section that some great local artists have pottery for sale. It has a section of ceramics that you can buy and paint yourself and they will cook it again after that. 

That was fun to see. So many great ideas, from painting a large platter with the family name or something like "Dad's Burgers"to piggy banks and garden gnomes. They also had quite a few Christmas related ceramic crafts to paint.

My kids and I had so much fun browsing the ideas and we surely will find ourselves back in the shop come summer vacation! :)

You can come back for parties or other group activities and they have cla…

Punk Baby Names

What do I like to do for fun? Look at my stats on blogger... for example you can see what search terms bring people to your site.

The top 4 search terms which bring people to my site are:

1.  speculoos hagel   ~very understandable - I did a post about these when they first showed up in the supermarket by my house. They are pretty good - but not nearly as good as crunchy speculoos pasta - which I avoid buying because it's that good... it's like that saying - an ounce on the lips - a pound on the hips... well yeah - that's about right!

2. -   ~mmmm - self explanatory

3. spumoni cake   ~ ahh, yes - delicious... or as they say in Italian: delizioso! The original post can be seen here

4. punk baby names   ~um, yeah, I've probably talked about baby names in the past. Let me do a quick search on my site to see what comes up...yep... 3 hits - 3 times I talked about baby names in past posts. But to say punk baby names - no - not really.

Now really - you g…
