Cookie Mix in a Jar

Posted on December 7, 2010

Update: this giveaway has ended and the winner was Susan!

This year, I’m making many of the holiday gifts that I’ll be giving.  One of my favorite things to give, that you might also like to give to your friends and family, is this homemade cookie mix.

This high protein, gluten free cookie mix is quick and easy to make.  Further, you are giving a friend or loved one a very special present –the opportunity to have the smell of fresh baked […]

Biscuits

Posted on November 15, 2010

Okey dokey, here comes a turkey day fave.  I’ve had a lot of requests for a gluten free biscuit lately, especially in my forums.  These biscuits are super easy to make and high protein fare to boot.  So you just might want to add these to your Thanksgiving menu.  Or your Christmas dinner menu.  Or a brunch menu.  As you can see, they’re quite versatile.

Pumpkin Bars

Posted on October 25, 2010

In honor of fall, I spent several days last week in a pumpkin “trance,” experimenting with various iterations of gluten free baked goods containing pumpkin.

At first, I had terrible failures. Suffice it to say that my pumpkin cookies and pumpkin scones while edible, were not at all blog worthy. Next, I decided to make pumpkin loaves –while they didn’t look too pretty, they were delicious. Finally, I made these gluten free pumpkin bars, which my 10 year old declared “addictive.”  Every day last […]

Gluten-Free Cupcakes Cookbook

Posted on October 4, 2010

It’s been a busy summer, with baseball, boys and everything else that goes on around here.  Now that it’s the “harvest,” it’s the perfect time to announce what I grew over the summer.  I cultivated a new book called:

Gluten-Free Cupcakes: 50 Irresistible Recipes Made with Almond and Coconut Flour

The book is available for pre-order on amazon.com and will be published next spring.  If you need to get an immediate cupcake fix, check out the cupcake recipes from my Month O’ […]

Chicken Meatballs from Spunky Coconut

Posted on October 1, 2010

Spunky Coconut’s Chicken Meatballs!

This giveaway is now closed.

This recipe comes from The Spunky Coconut Cookbook by my adorable friend, Kelly Brozyna of the spunkycoconut.com.

Last weekend, between all of my writing deadlines, I snuck out of the house, away from the computer to meet up with Kelly and her family at the Boulder Farmer’s Market.  We grabbed some grub from the market, splashed around with her gorgeous daughters in the creek, then walked around downtown together for a while.

How refreshing!  I […]

Vegan Herb Crackers

Posted on August 23, 2010

Finally, a gluten free cracker that is egg free as well!  Who do I have to thank for this tasty cracker?  Mark Sisson of Mark’s Daily Apple and author of The Primal Blueprint and The Primal Blueprint Cookbook.  I am a huge fan of Mark and his work.

Chardonnay Crackers

Posted on July 29, 2010

These healthy Chardonnay Crackers have a deep, rich and buttery flavor.  They’re great for everyday snacking or as an hors d’œuvre.  I like that they’re high in protein and have good fats (due to the blanched almond flour) and full of antioxidants (in the Grape Seed Flour).  They’re a wonderful recovery snack as well after a good workout!

This isn’t the first recipe I’ve made using Grape Seed Flour from AprèsVin. Earlier this year I posted Chardonnay Grape Seed Flour Chocolate […]

Chocolate Chip Cookies with Yacon

Posted on July 15, 2010

So all you agave haters gather round.  These gluten free chocolate chip cookies are completely free of agave, I have used yacon instead.

What is yacon?  It is a perennial root, composed primarily of water and Fructooligosaccharide (FOS). These short chain sugars have a lower caloric value (as they are digested anaerobically) and high fiber content. FOS is a prebiotic that is extremely helpful with digestion. 

I use yacon as my “brown sugar” or “molasses” in my recipes.  For example, in […]

If you are looking for a cooling treat during this hot spell, try this Gluten Free Ice Cream Sandwich recipe, made with my Vegan Vanilla Ice Cream.  The boys and I made it the other day and they couldn’t get enough of them!

Grain-Free Peach Crisp

Posted on July 8, 2010

This new and improved gluten free Peach Crisp was a lot of fun to shoot and even more fun to eat.  I’m loving (rather than dreading) taking pictures ever since I took the Food and Light Photography Workshop.

Why another Peach Crisp?  Well, a number of you had left comments on my “old” Peach Crisp recipe, mentioning that the topping seemed wet.  So, I went back and tried the recipe myself.  I wrote that recipe 2 years ago and I guess […]

Cherry Blueberry Crumble

Posted on June 22, 2010

My children loved this gluten free Cherry Blueberry Crumble made from fresh ripe fruit.  As you can see, they placed a huge dollop of Whipped Cream on top.

This healthy high protein version of the ultimate classic cookie is made from almond flour and speckled with sliced almonds. Easy to make and even easier to eat, enjoy for dessert, or use as a post workout snack to boost your energy.

Rosemary Crackers: Video

I am loving working with the Almond Board of California to promote healthy eating.  Almonds are my favorite superfood –they’re full of protein, low in carbohydrates and packed with nutritious vitamins and minerals.

The Almond Board asked me to create a cracker recipe for them so I have developed these wonderfully flavorful Rosemary Crackers made of almond flour.  They are delicious paired with olive tapenade or any soft spreadable cheese for a cocktail party. […]

I am thrilled to let you all know that I am working with the Almond Board of California to promote healthy and delicious eating.

Why am I doing this?  As you can imagine, I love almonds.  They are a superfood and of course one of my favorite things to nibble on.  I like almonds so much that I wrote an entire book about them.  The Gluten-Free Almond Flour Cookbook uses almonds in all of […]

Carrot Cake Cupcakes

Posted on May 18, 2010

I’ve been wanting to make gluten free Carrot Cupcakes for a while now.  When I think of spring, I think of carrot cake and when I think of picnics and potlucks I think of carrot cake cupcake yumminess.

These little gluten free Carrot Cake Cupcakes are topped with my Creamy Cream Cheese Frosting, though if you’re looking for a vegan frosting option, you could go with my Coconut Cream Frosting.

My younger son loved these, though the whole family enjoyed […]

Banana Cream Pie Cupcakes

Posted on May 11, 2010

I’m on a gluten free cupcake mission, as you can see from the photo above and my other recent posts for Jelly Donut Cupcakes and Coconut Key Lime Cupcakes. 

The boys are thrilled when they get home from school and the house looks like its ready for a birthday party.  And I’m thrilled to see them with frosting all over their cute little faces.

Riesling Biscuits

Posted on April 30, 2010

A while back, I posted a recipe for Cabernet Cookies, using Cabernet Grape Seed Flour from AprèsVin. I thought they turned out very well –not too sweet, full of antioxidants and rich, dark chocolate; basically, my family was hooked.

Recently, I was reviewing the comments for that post and saw this one that Jenné from sweetpotatosoul.blogspot.com left.  In it she mentioned making some cookies with grapeseed flour, so I hopped over to her blog and to take a peak. Jenne had […]

Lemon Poppy Seed Bunny Cookies

Posted on April 2, 2010

The idea for these delicious gluten free Lemon Poppy Seed Bunny Cookies for Easter came from Gluten Free Foodie Heaven and her Lemon Poppy Seed Bunnies recipe.  Even though we don’t celebrate Easter, I thought they were very cute and springlike and had to make some of my own with the usual favorite ingredients that I keep on hand.

Carrot Kugel

Posted on March 19, 2010

Carrot Kugel –who would have thought of that? Well, the fabulous Lisa Stafford, that’s who. Lisa recently posted her recipe for Carrot Souffle in the forums and here’s what she had to say about it:

“I made this dish Tuesday night and had some with our meat and salad. I warmed some up in the toaster oven for lunch on Wednesday. Before I put it away, I tried it cold. Oh my goodness! I like it cold much better. It reminds me of […]
