Confessions and a Recipe

Confession #1: Whenever I have a cold or sinus infection, I still buy children’s grape Sudfed because it tastes so dang delicious.  It makes being sick much less awful.



Confession #2: When I grow up I want to own a Bed & Breakfast.

Confession #3: I still watch “Full House” and “Sister Sister” whenever they are on TV.




Confession #4:  I am terrified of going to the dentist because he is going to be sad at me for brushing my teeth too hard (and making my gums recede). I keep procrastinating making an appointment.

Confession #5: Sometimes I go to Lowe’s just to walk down the lumber aisle and smell that amazing lumber aroma.


Confession #6: I have a serious sweet tooth.  I am one of those girls that needs desserts.  I am actually a born and bred cake addict, but since gluten and I just do not get along, I have had to figure out more creative ways to get a dessert fix.

Confession #7: I am too lazy and too frugal to search for and buy alternative gluten-free “flours.” I would just prefer to eat buttercream frosting sans cake and crust-less pie = pudding! My new favorite paleo-friendly dessert is  pumpkin pie pudding.

Paleo Pumpkin Pudding

1 can (15 oz) pumpkin

1 cup coconut milk

1 tbsp molasses

1 tsp vanilla

2 extra large (or 3 large eggs)

½ cup brown sugar

1 ½ tsp cinnamon

½ tsp ginger

¼ tsp cloves

¼ tsp nutmeg

1)      Whisk all ingredients together

2)      Pour/Strain through a sieve,  sifter or food mill

3)      Bake in a water bath at 350 degrees for 40 minutes

4) Chill until ready to eat!

Do you have any confessions?

I am obsessed with cooking, running and reading! I teach American Literature at the college level, but enjoy books of all kind! After years of GI issues and being prescribed numerous medications, I found perfection in eating Paleo! I am no longer bloated, nauseous, or miserable on a daily basis. I have delved into creating Paleo recipe-making and embracing an active and playful life!

  6. I am such a Full House fan- I am ashamed to admit that I don’t own the boxed set- I don’t know why I’m not an owner to all of the seasons. I’m so ashamed of myself! 😦
    This recipe sounds ROCKIN! 🙂

    I would stay at your Bed & Breakfast 😀

  8. Hahha loved this! I am a major Full House fan too, and yep Sister Sister as well! I am intrigued by this recipe as well… I feel ya on those dang flours, they can be pricey!!

  9. I was JUST thinking that I haven’t seen Full House in a while! haha

  10. SO I have a major sweet tooth and my major confession si that every Sunday Im like ‘Im going to give up sugar totally for 3 weeks, and then only have something sweet once per week!’. And then Monday night Im tucking into the dark chocolate post dinner. Thank goodness I no longer blog about these ‘decisions’.

    Now where does one watch full house!? I feel Louis needs the exposure!!

    • I have decided to stop “giving up sugar” because it only lasts for 2 hours! 🙂 And I will make it my mission to find a way for you and Louis to experience the wonder that is Full House!

    Would your bed and breakfast be paleo? 🙂

  12. Full house is the best show ever 🙂 Lowe’s, yeah I go there to buy copious amounts of sand…. and I agree with you it smells good haha

  13. Eep! I want to run a bed and breakfast, too. My boy and I are moving to a place downtown, and we’re going to post the second bedroom on Airbnb and run it like a bed and breakfast 🙂 I’m so excited.

    Anyway, this pudding sounds delicious. MUST find a way to make it vegan.

  14. confession #1: you are my twin and i love you … now let’s bond over some buttercream frosting!!! I’ll work on our partnership agreement to open a bread and breakfast while waiting for you to get here!
