Paleo Iced Carrot Cake

Paleo Iced Carrot Cake

Nut-free and raisin-free, this Paleo Iced Carrot Cake is a fluffy carrot cake quickbread that is dairy-free, refined sugar-free, grain-free and made without gluten.  Carrot cake is a popular cake in my family. First and foremost it is one of Daddy's favorite desserts, but just recently I learned that it is also one of Little Sissy's favorites. Of course her reasoning is more so because of the cream cheese frosting, but that really isn't the point here. The point is that my family loves carrot cake, and so do I, so I thought it would be fun to show them what ... Continue Reading...

Ok, so before I share a really delicious recipe with you, I really need to get something off my chest. I’M SO SORRY!! I have been so absent from the blog world lately. I gave up my morning blogging routine for Lent so that I could spend more time with God (which I am really enjoying) but it has severely cut into my blogging time. By the time I get off and work and workout, Ninja is home, and I refuse to be on the computer all night when I can be spending time with him. So until Lent is over, my blogging schedule is going to stay a bit crazy. I just wanted to let you ... Continue Reading...
