I love buying fresh bunches of carrots from the farmers market, but sometimes it’s tough figuring out what to do with all those greens. Some vendors will offer to remove them for you before you take your bunch of carrots home (I really can’t believe this is a thing), but don’t let them!

It’s not often that I bake. I tend more towards the savory side of things for every meal, including breakfast. But sometimes, you just need a sweet treat. And lately I’ve been baking more often.

I’m working on an easy gluten-free brownie recipe that uses coconut flour instead of all purpose. And then there are these Simple Ginger-Spiced Apple Muffins.
