Cranberry Cherry Relish

Posted on November 15, 2012

Fresh cranberry sauce made with only 4 ingredients, no sugar.

I’ve had cranberry sauce on my mind. So I researched cranberry sauce recipes, and found that most have anywhere from ¼ to 1 ¾ cups of sugar.

While it’s nicely tart, the cherries and orange juice make it quite sweet too.

This is a naturally sweetened lower-glycemic cranberry relish recipe, ... read more →

Last weekend our friends Chris and Larry came over to sit out on our porch and read the Sunday New York Times with us while soaking in some good Colorado sunshine and we enjoyed these descendants of Heidi’s carrot, banana, date yumminess.  Here it is ... read more →

Pumpkin Ginger Soup

Posted on November 4, 2009

Soup mania continues.  And this dairy free creamy pumpkin coconut ginger soup hits the spot.  I decided I had to make something pumpkin today after making pumpkin pies from my gluten free cookbook (The Gluten-Free Almond Flour Cookbook) and finding myself with a bunch of leftover roasted pumpkin.  Of course soup was the easiest thing to make after making one too many pumpkin pies for family and friends.

We’re having nice weather here, in the 60’s and sunny, however ... read more →
