Spicy Party Mix is a fabulous appetizer and a great healthy snack for kids. For adults, it goes really well with a cocktail; for children it’s the perfect replacement for Chex Party Mix.
Ever since the boys were little we’ve been visiting a resort in Mexico called Palmilla. It’s an old time place in San Jose del Cabo, one where Sinatra and his friends used to hang out and it’s gorgeous. This year is the first year that we have not […]

These super scrumpdidlyicious healthy Banana Chocolate Chip Pancakes are made from only seven ingredients. That includes the coconut oil in which you sauté them. The base of these pancakes (one of my super easy breakfast recipes) is cashews –that’s right, no flour, not even almond flour.
Replacing high-carb wheat flour with lower-carb cashews is fantastic for those watching their blood sugar. Cashews also work well in baking (see my Cashew Bread recipe) for folks who are gluten-free, which is another reason I use them.
While these quick and easy pancakes are a fantastic breakfast on a weekend morning, I also like to serve them along with an egg dish on Sunday nights for dinner. Breakfast for dinner is a family favorite in our house, and the boys especially appreciate the change in routine.

Let us now praise all things pumpkin. I’m kinda obsessed with gluten free, dairy free pumpkin dishes right now, hence the vegan Pumpkin Ice Cream here, and the Pumpkin Bars earlier this week. And let us not forget the Pumpkin Pie Muffins of last year either.
This pumpkin pie ice cream is a delicious fall treat whether served at Halloween or Thanksgiving. For more information on pumpkin mania, check out this funny article from Esquire called Some Pumpkin Flavoring Best Avoided […]

This is my favorite ice cream. It’s vegan. It’s vanilla. And it’s yummy.
I’ve been making this ice cream for the last couple of years. Way back when in my New York days, my raw food friends turned me on to the fact that cashews make an amazing substitute for dairy. While I love this ice cream and have been known to chow on it late night, be forewarned that my husband (who is my ultimate taste tester) does not like it.
Vegan Vanilla Ice […]

There was a distinct chill in the air last night which lead me to put on slippers and make a cup of gluten free, dairy free hot chocolate. This quick and easy beverage can be simply made from scratch in a matter of minutes.

1 tablespoon cacao powder
1 tablespoon agave nectar or honey
20 drops stevia
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 cup boiling water
Place cashews and (room temperature) water in a vitamix; puree on high until […]

Cashew milk is my new favorite. I use it in smoothies and tea or splashed over a bowl full of granola.
Smooth, creamy and naturally sweet, this milk offers a much needed respite from the ubiquitous almond, which reigns supreme in my kitchen –unlike my almond milk recipe, this cashew milk does not require any straining. It is a cinch to make. Quick and easy, I like to have a quart of cashew milk ready in the fridge at all times.
