Latkes are everyone’s favorite Jewish fried food. The typical latke is made with potato, flour and eggs. I however, like to make a more Paleo friendly latke and now with this new recipe, I have 2 versions of Paleo pancakes.
Generally at Hanukkah, I make a Butternut Squash Latke, though this year I was searching for a bit of variety and so came up with this Carrot Scallion Latke. Why carrots? Well, first of all, my younger son asked me to […]

Kumquats are in season right now. What’s a kumquat you ask? Essentially it’s a citrus fruit that closely resembles an orange, though it is much smaller. If you want to know more about kumquats there is a great article over at the Cooking Light website.
Meanwhile, here’s a cozy holiday recipe for gluten free Kumquat Garlic Chicken. We’re having this tonight for the first night of Hanukkah, along with Squash Latkes and gluten free Matzo Ball Soup, of course.

Hanukkah begins this Friday at sundown. My older son is sitting next to me as I write up this post. As I read the text out loud, he exclaimed, “Really?!” He’s getting into the Hanukkah spirit and you can too with this yummy little gluten free, higher protein holiday menu below.
I’m looking forward to whipping up a batch of Squash Latkes and Homemade Apple Sauce this Friday and lighting our menorah.

Are you spending too much time on the computer? That’s a question I’ve been asking myself a lot lately. After reading this article in The Atlantic and finding out about this new site that calculates the amount of time spent on twitter, I’ve really been pondering this matter.
I haven’t been pondering it too much though. Instead, last weekend, I took a break and left my computer off for 48 hours. Wow, I did have quite a surprise on Monday morning, […]

This moist festive dessert is a perfect healthy treat for your holiday celebrations.
Yum. Gluten Free and Dairy Free Orange Cake. There’s something special about oranges. Such a simple fruit yet, bursting with flavor and possibility, they remind me of winter, specifically Christmas.
A while back I told ~M, one of my favorite readers, that I would post my version of Claudia Roden’s Gateau a l’Orange. This moist festive gluten free orange cake makes an ideal dish for holiday celebrations.

As some of you know, I write an op-ed column for The Daily Camera, covering political, economic and environmental issues. As we face increasing food prices and shortages worldwide, food becomes a more important aspect of such aforementioned matters.
This week, my column was called, The Politics of High Fructose Corn Syrup. In it, I discussed our government’s gigantic corn subsidy and our country’s growing waistlines. When I awoke this morning, my husband asked if I had received […]

Healthy, gluten free, potato free latke recipe for Hanukkah.
Hanukkah is a day away and that means only one thing: fried food! Lots of it. Yum. I love a good crispy latke, or just about anything fried for that matter.
Below is my favorite recipe for latkes. I have been making these gluten-free latkes for 5 plus years and my family still rejoices each Hanukkah when I serve them.
Butternut Squash Latkes
4 cups butternut squash, peeled and grated
1 small onion, peeled and grated

I love the season of late fall, just before the winter solstice. The days get super short –well, I don’t love that. Nevertheless, I enjoy the chill in the air and seeing the mountains covered in snow.
For me, cold weather is merely a great excuse to stay home and bake, and this time of year, I especially like to serve warm homemade applesauce. I peel apples and bake them in the oven. The house smells amazing and when it’s Hanukkah, […]

More kale mom!
Say hello to Kale with Cranberries! This salad recipe contains: kale, a cancer fighting superfood packed with flavonoids; cranberries, high in vitamin C; and pine nuts, the edible seed of the pine tree, and higher in protein than any other seed.
My boys fight over this one. The four of us can finish off the 2 bunches of kale that the recipe calls for in one sitting. Even when their dad is not home for dinner, the three of […]

These gluten free vegan holiday cookies are a fun project for Hanukkah, Christmas and Santa Lucia.
Last week, the boys’ Waldorf school, Shining Mountain had a Santa Lucia celebration. What is Santa Lucia, you ask – a pre-Christian feature of modern day Catholicism; a mid-winter festival of light on one of the longest nights of the year. Lucia translates to Lucy, which means light, as in lucid. She is the saint of radiant clarity.
Anyway, let me not digress into religious history […]
