Recipe Collection: My Top 10 Favorites

By | May 23, 2013

I’ve posted a lot of recipes on here.  Except for around the holidays or when my babies were born, I’ve posted one every Thursday for the last 3 1/2 years.  That’s 150 recipes or so! If you’re new here, or at least newer than three and a half years ago (which is most of you), Read More

Recipe Collection: Chocolate Cake (GAPS-friendly!)

By | July 21, 2011

**This post has been entered in Pennywise Platter at The Nourishing Gourmet and Monday Mania at The Healthy Home Economist!** Last weekend was my son’s birthday.  I needed to come up with a good, rich cake for him and decided to see if I could make it GAPS-friendly while I was at it.  What I came Read More

Recipe Collection: Taco Seasoning

By | March 10, 2011

A few years ago, we stopped buying those packets of taco seasoning.  They are full of MSG, modified cornstarch, and other awful junk.  Plus, they’re pretty expensive for what they are.  We’ve evolved a very simple taco seasoning that we use at home all the time.  Often I don’t even bother to measure, I just Read More

Recipe Collection: Almond Flour Carrot Cake

By | February 24, 2011

**This post has been linked to Pennywise Platters Thursday at The Nourishing Gourmet and Monday Mania at The Healthy Home Economist!** I know this post is late.  And I hope it was worth waiting for!  It had been my intention to test this recipe yesterday, but life happened (midwives’ appointment and so much more) and it Read More

Recipe Collection: White Bean Vanilla Cake

By | February 10, 2011

**This post has been entered in Pennywise Platter Thursday at The Nourishing Gourmet and Monday Mania at The Healthy Home Economist!** This is one for the history books.  It’s a delicious, rich, amazing vanilla cake that is entirely grain- and refined- sugar free and GAPS-friendly!  I needed a cake for my daughter’s birthday right after we Read More

Recipe Collection: Apple Upside Down Muffins (Grain-Free!)

By | February 3, 2011

**This post has been linked to Pennywise Platters Thursday at The Nourishing Gourmet!** Last weekend I needed a snack and I wanted to make some muffins.  I saw the apple pie filling I’d canned last year sitting in my pantry, and I thought, “Hmm…”  So I mixed up these muffins and they were delicious!  They’re Read More

Recipe Collection: Almond Flour Muffins

By | January 20, 2011

Recently we decided to go grain-free again.  I’ll be talking more about why and how in the coming weeks, but today I have a yummy recipe to share with you.  I made these for an afternoon snack earlier this week and the 8 muffins this recipe made were gone in minutes.  They’re a little crumbly Read More

Recipe Collection: Chocolate Almond Coconut Candy

By | October 21, 2010

Image Credit Halloween is coming, which means lots of candy. Lots. But if you’re a real foodie, you won’t be eating much candy, because there is no healthy candy. Right? Wrong. I’ve come up with a recipe so delicious, you won’t be able to stop eating it.  And since it’s also incredibly healthy, you won’t Read More

Recipe Collection: Coconut Chocolate Muffins

By | February 18, 2010

At the moment, we’re grain-free, so we were really missing bread. I borrowed the original version of this recipe from Ann Marie at Cheeseslave, then made a few changes to suit our tastes and allergies (we can’t do blueberries).

Making Jerky

By | February 8, 2010


This is a really great snack for us on our new diet. But when you buy it, it’s expensive, made from factory-farmed meat (often, not always…but if not it’s even more expensive!), and can contain sodium nitrite. No thanks!

Recipe Collection: Gluten-Free Pumpkin Bread, and Surprise!

By | December 3, 2009

Who doesn’t love pumpkin bread in the fall? It’s a great holiday treat. I made this bread today for Thanksgiving (it’s evening and most people have gone home now) and it was SO good that my mom wanted the recipe and some of the bread to take to work to share with her coworkers. She said, “I’m not usually into all the healthy cooking you do, but this bread is great!” Can’t even tell it’s gluten-free. :) Dairy free, too, unless you add cream cheese frosting! We didn’t, so I don’t have a recipe for that, but it’s really great just by itself.
