Recipe Questions

I’m gluten-free/dairy-free/vegan. Do you have recipes made for these special diets?

Yup! You can view recipes that fit these special diets by visit the corresponding recipe section in the menu bar, or by clicking on the corresponding link below. Please note that recipes labeled as gluten-free or dairy-free may include ingredients like oats, chocolate, etc. that should be specifically verified gluten-free/dairy-free.


I have a question about a recipe! Can you help me?

Yes! I appreciate when people ask me questions about a recipe, because it means that someone’s interested in trying it out on their own. Plus, chances are that someone else might come along with the same question as you and will appreciate whatever feedback I have to give. The best way to ask a recipe-based question is to leave a comment on the relevant post. I answer comments as soon as possible, and by default you will receive an e-mail when I respond to your comment (the box next to “Notify me of follow-up comments via email” must be check-marked when leaving a comment).

Use of Content

Can I use a recipe from your site on my website, blog, etc.?

Of course, but please make sure that you include proper credit, including a link back to the page on my blog where you found the recipe.

Can I use your photos on my website, blog, etc.?

I ask that you don’t use any of my photos without explicit permission. This doesn’t mean that the answer is no, it just means ask first. Please contact me if you would like to use a specific photo, and I’ll do my best to get back to you promptly.

Hi there

Can you please help me with converting US cups into grams. I have looked on several websites and they differ so much.
4 Cups rolled oats
1/2 Cup pecans
1/2 Cup slivered almonds
1/4 Cup oil
1/3 Cup honey

Namy thanks

Hi Susan, I hope you received my e-mail with all of the measurements. Let me know if you didn’t or if you have any other questions!

Just a quick question…I’ve seen a lot of recipes call for cornstarch, is there an acceptable substitute? Perhaps honey? Thanks :-)


Crystal March 21, 2014

Sorry meant corn syrup.


alexandra March 25, 2014

Hi Crystal,
I’m assuming you mean recipes in general, and not necessarily recipes from my blog? (The reason why I ask is very few of my recipes use corn syrup). Anyway, honey, agave, or golden syrup are often good substitutes, but it really depends on the recipe. David Lebovitz has a good post on this topic that might be helpful to you here.

Hi alexandra,
Thank you so much for posting the ultimate chocolate muffin recipe, I made it and was facinated by the results. So I went haunting for bakery style blueberry muffin recipe (that uses whole blueberries) but unfortunately I didn’t find what I was looking for
And I am wondering if I adjusted the chocolate muffin recipe ( by substituting chocolate powder with corn starch or flour and chocolate chips with blueberries), would you think I would get a satisfying result <<< Ive made many recipes but they were all a failure to me ( they were OK but non of the recipes were it)

Hi there! So glad you’re enjoying the muffins as much as I did! I think if you were to sub the cocoa powder for more flour it would probably work fairly well; you could also scale down on the sugar a bit (unless you like a pretty sweet muffin), since you don’t need to balance the bitterness of the cocoa.
That being said, you could also try this recipe, which I think might give you the results you’re looking for, and just use blueberries in place of the chocolate chips and strawberries. It’s one of the first recipes I posted here so the photos are quite mediocre (lol), but the recipe is a good one!

Thanx ❤️ Will definitely give it a try …I might attempt doing both recipes (the one you kindly posted and the other by adjusting the chocolate muffin recipe << it just showes you how much I am in love with them) … I am lucky to have found you and your website 🌸
