  • Rustic Raspberry Galette (Pie Crust Recipe)

    I’m a believer of all things pie. It’s in my genes – both of my Grandmothers were amazing pie makers. My Momma’s a pie maker too. So I’ve never been afraid to bake a pie. Yes, even in the Summer heat. I mean really, these fresh berries are just begging to be baked into a pie (unless they’re topping this pudding). And since I’m a believer of all things pie, I’m also of the belief that Summer just can’t pass without a raspberry pie (my absolute favorite). ...
  • Summer Holidays & Vanilla Cashew Pudding with Raspberries

    It’s so important for me to make sure my kids have a blast this Summer. And as you can see, we’re doing the best we can!  I believe in making the most of Summer (actually, we should make the most of every day). We’re also staying cool eating lots of homemade ice cream (have you seen The Spunky Coconut’s new Dairy-Free Ice Cream Cookbook!?) and homemade popsicles. Who says dairy-free living can’t be delicious? We’ve learned how to satisfy our creamy cravings with ...
  • Gluten-Free and Vegan Chocolate Chocolate Cookies

    My kids are addicted to these cookies! And I couldn’t be happier – they’re full of healthier ingredients and they’re nut-free! This is my first cookie recipe using NuNaturals Stevia (alcohol-free). Let me tell you, I loved cutting back the sugar (even unrefined sugar is sugar) and adding some stevia. If you want to skip the stevia (it’s okay, it took me a long time to come around to stevia), add a tablespoon or two of maple syrup. This recipe also uses my latest obsess...
  • Lemon Poppy-Seed Cookies

    I am so proud of my Momma – she’s made some major changes in her diet in the last few months and she’s looking and feeling fabulous! After reading Wheat Belly, she decided to switch to a gluten-free lifestyle. She’s also taken on dairy-free living. And refined sugar-free living. Yes, she’s a superstar! And she also happens to be an amazing and supportive Mother. I can’t imagine where I’d be if it weren’t for her love in my life. My Mom and I share a love for many ...
  • Nut-Free Granola Bars

    It’s maple syrup season in these parts and I am making the most of it.  How can we not when the stuff is flowing from the trees, begging us to use it! As you know, I’m in love with pumpkin seed flour so naturally I had to try my hand at a nut-free granola bar recipe. Pumpkin seeds feature prominently in this recipe, and why not?  They’re naturally high in iron, magnesium, and zinc; all are essential minerals for women’s health and wellness. Honestly, you’d never ...
  • Pumpkin Seed Chocolate Chip Cookies

    I have a new favorite flour – pumpkin seed flour.  I’ve been experimenting with it for a month or so now and I just can’t get enough!  Oh, and you won’t believe how well it pairs with maple syrup – it just happens to be maple syrup season in these parts! There’s so much to love about pumpkin seed flour: I can make it at home with my coffee grinder; Pumpkin seeds are high in iron and zinc; Pumpkin seed flour is a nut-free replacement for almond flour; They add ...

  • Cookie Dough Milkshake – Swap Your Sweeteners

    Welcome to the third installment of New Year, New You! Hallie of Daily Bites and Lexie of Lexie's Kitchen have organized an inspirational blogging event with the goal of encouraging all of us to Take the Pure Living Plunge! What does Pure Living mean? For me pure living refers to eating whole foods and nutritious foods. Pure living also means eating foods that keep your body clean, and make you feel your very best. Pete and I spent most of 2011 taking the pure living plunge, and ...
  • Dairy-Free Candy Cane Ice Cream

    Home for the holidays means a lot to me. My family has made some pretty amazing Christmas memories and traditions over the years. One of my favorite parts about Christmas dinner was dessert (I know I'm not alone here).  My Mom always had a tray of delicious homemade cookies and of course some Candy Cane Ice Cream stashed in the freezer! I knew it would be such a treat to make Candy Cane Ice Cream for my kids so they could enjoy it too. And now the tradition continues because this was ...
  • Peanut Butter Cups

    It’s time to start thinking about some amazing and delicious gluten-free gifts we can share with friends and family over the holidays. A couple of years ago my friend Alta shared some fabulously healthier gifts – I made her chocolate dipped spiced dates for friends of ours. They were a big hit! I love sharing gluten-free goodies during the holidays. It’s a great way to spread the delicious gluten-free love, to show people how simple gluten-free can be, and to show the kids that ...
