This roundup is full of healthy zucchini recipes to help you deal with the proliferation of zucchini in your garden.
Zucchini roundup alert! ‘Tis the season to figure out what to do with all of that marvelous zucchini. So I’ve provided you with several links including one to my Chocolate Zucchini Bread recipe, which I’m often told tastes like a chocolate zucchini cake. The great thing about zucchini bread is that it’s healthy, and so are my other recipes for zucchini.

Paleo Chocolate Chip Scones are a delicious gluten-free, grain-free, nut-free treat; naturally sweetened with honey.
I really don’t write a lot on my website because:
I’m not a writer.
I figure you all come here for the recipes anyway.
What’s the point? I like short and sweet. Literally.
Every now and then though, I do get the itch to write just a bit. And this recent comment on Facebook tickled my writing fancy:
I absolutely adore your recipes. I’ve been Paleo for over a […]

New Year’s Eve Finger Foods are gluten-free, healthy, and best of all filling.
According to Wikipedia, an amuse-bouche (pronounced uh-MYUZ-boosh) is a single, bite-sized hors d’œuvre.
Literally, this term means amusement of the mouth. I’m putting together a list of amuse bouche finger foods that will amuse fingers, mouths and guests alike during your New Year’s Eve celebration.

Latkes with apple sauce are my favorite part of the Hanukkah meal –gluten-free, grain-free and Paleo of course.
The Hanukkah meal is a special dinner for us during the holiday season, we look forward to it all year. As soon as the gluten-free latkes hit the plate, they seem to disappear. Boys + latkes = lethal combination.
I am sharing our Paleo Hanukkah Menu so that you too can enjoy this amazing holiday whether you are Jewish or not.
I began the tradition […]

Paleo condiments and sauces will make your Thanksgiving dinner and leftovers sparkle.
Here are my favorite Paleo Thanksgiving condiment and sauce recipes. All of these gluten free accompaniments will be used in my house throughout the entire Thanksgiving weekend to keep our leftovers jazzy and exciting.
Healthy condiments spice up surplus food (in other words “must go’s”), so that you can keep serving your guests scraps and remnants of your turkey day meal during a long holiday weekend of football games, parades […]

After going without food and water for over 24 hours, we like to keep our break fast light and healthy.
Yom Kippur, also known as the Day of Atonement, is one of the holiest days of the year for Jews. Fasting begins 20 minutes before sundown and ends after nightfall the following day. Jewish fast days not only include abstaining from food, but water as well.
Because the fast is not always easy and can be challenging on the body, we make […]

Paleo recipes take your gluten free seder to the next level of healthiness.
Although I’ve been grain free since 2001, this will be our first strictly Paleo Passover seder. I’m sharing my seder menu since the requests for Paleo Passover recipes are coming in a mile a minute.
Many of these gluten free Passover recipes are traditional Jewish fare and can be used for other Jewish holidays as well –think Squash Pie, which I serve as kugel.
I hope this menu will make […]

This Paleo Plan is for my friend Leslie Dietrich. Our children play baseball together and Leslie and I had the pleasure of thrift shopping our way through Waco, Texas last summer when their team was in the Regional Little League World Series Playoffs.
Like me, Leslie has a host of auto-immune disorders. Unlike me, she still eats gluten and grains. Leslie asked me for an eating plan that she could try for one week to see if the symptoms in […]

After I saw Recipe Girl’s beautiful post, “25 Favorite Christmas Recipes,” I knew I’d have to do a similar gluten free post. You see, like everybody else, I’ve been slightly obsessed with Christmas desserts this month.
However, unlike many people, I’m Jewish, so I have a certain lack of confidence when it comes to identifying recipes that are Christmas friendly. Now, thanks to everyone who responded to my self-conscious twitter queries regarding Christmas-worthy cookie recipes I just might be in the […]

When it comes to substitutions, I wish I could answer each and every one of your questions. Unfortunately, I can’t. You see, I don’t have a crystal ball with the answers; they’re not in my head, they’re in my hands, but I’ll get to that later.
For me, baking involves the use of techniques and ingredients that come together in a magical way –each recipe is unique. Like my hero Virginia Satir, I believe in “leading the change process a half […]

The other day, one of my favorite commenters suggested that I post a roundup of leftover chicken recipes; actually at this point I would probably call ~M (that’s the handle she uses when commenting on my site) a “contributor.”
I quickly took to ~M’s idea since this time of year so many of us are suffering from post holiday cooking fatigue. If you have leftover chicken or turkey from the holidays or if you want to throw a bird in the […]

It seems that Fennel Apple Soup is on everyone’s radar these days. And what better time than now?! It’s perfect soup weather here in Boulder –a toasty -2 outside, which begs for soup.
Gluten free Fennel Apple Soup has been popping up everywhere –on various gluten free yahoo groups and in various magazines. Here’s my version.
Fennel Apple Soup
2 tablespoons olive oil
2 (medium to large) fennel bulbs stems removed and diced
2 large apples (I used Honeycrisp), peeled, cored and diced
1 quart […]

For the past few months, I have been playing around with power bar recipes. When I’m on the go, I want to grab something that is packed with nutrition, not too sweet and plenty tasty.
I’ve made this power bar recipe a bunch of times now and my taste testers (that would be my husband who is a very direct and rather stringent critic) have given it their official seal of approval (that would be eating an entire tray in two […]
