Gluten free, grain free, egg free, nut free, refined sugar free (everything) free brownies.
I really enjoy using almond flour –almonds are a superfood and highly nutritious. However, every now and then, someone requests a nut free dessert recipe for some type of gluten free baked good. At other times, folks are looking for an egg free recipe.
There are as many allergies out there as there are colors in the rainbow. This brownie recipe is for all the nut free, egg ... read more →

I’m passionate about creating desserts that please the palate and contain super foods as well –a win-win situation for myself, my family and my readers.
These cookies are one of those rare vegan, yet primal friendly treats. These nutritious cookies are the perfect primal friendly treat. I won’t call them Paleo ... read more →

Easy gluten free pumpkin bread recipe spiced with nutmeg, cinnamon, and cloves.
Nothing says “fall” like the smell of fresh pumpkin bread wafting from the oven. This lusciously moist, gluten free, dairy free pumpkin quick bread is made with high protein almond flour, and came about by popular demand.
So many of you left comments on my Paleo Bread post requesting a healthy pumpkin bread, that I was moved to make yet another Paleo quick bread for all of you.

This gluten free bread is easy to make, tastes great, and is full of nutrient dense ingredients.
Gluten free isn’t necessarily healthy, especially when it comes to bread. Here’s a gluten free bread recipe, made of high protein ingredients that won’t leave you dragging. I’m loving every slice that comes from this new Paleo diet friendly bread recipe.
This bread is just a bit lighter and fluffier than my other breads. It has a nice nutty flavor from the flax meal which ... read more →

Strawberries are higher in antioxidants than just about every other fruit.
Strawberry Sorbet is the perfectly refreshing dessert for any summer meal. This sorbet recipe is loaded with wholesome strawberries, which have numerous health benefits. Strawberries are thought to be a cancer fighting food as well as high in vitamin C, anti-inflammatory and good for the cardiovascular system. Research has also shown that strawberries can help to regulate blood sugar and decrease the risk of type 2 diabetes.
I’m highlighting this sorbet ... read more →

Can’t get your family to eat their greens? Try this healthy, gluten free, soy free, Garlic Ginger Bok Choy recipe. This Asian veggie dish is delicious paired with the Sesame Salmon Burger recipe I posted last week.
This recipe is actually based on a recipe I found in Fine Cooking Magazine called Stir-Fried Bok Choy with Garlic, Ginger, and Scallions by Susie Middleton. I changed mine up a bit, eliminating the corn starch and chicken stock from it. I hope you ... read more →

This recipe is based on one by Ellyn Goodrich at epicurious.com, called “Alaskan Halibut and Salmon Gefilte Fish Terrine.” While Goodrich’s recipe makes a gefilte fish “loaf,” mine is for traditional (yet gluten free) gefilte fish balls (like my Bubby made) only with more vegetables, so that they are a bit lighter and healthier than the standard gefilte-fare. What are gefilte fish?
Here is Wikipedia’s definition:
“Yiddish Gefüllte Fisch (Gefilte fish;from German gefüllte “stuffed” fish) (Hebrew: dagim memula’im, literally “filled fish”) is a ... read more →

These healthier gluten free brownies are the perfect Super Bowl snack. My family loved them and I’m hoping my guests will too when I serve these treats along with my gluten free Super Bowl Cake Pops come next Sunday when the Packers take on the Steelers and I have my big, bad, gluten free Super Bowl party.
These brownies use high fiber coconut flour and are based on a recipe by Michelle from Gluten Free Fix; her recipe is called Gluten Free Fudge ... read more →

These healthy, higher protein, gluten free Date Walnut Bars are a nice alternative to my more indulgent gluten free Cake Pops. If you follow me on Facebook, you know I’m obsessed with cake pops. After I put the words “cake pops” in my status update bar for the umpteenth time, one of my followers said, “yes, I have noticed them!” I think she may have had just a twinge if sarcasm in her response, though who can blame her.
Anyway, back ... read more →

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 ... read more →

My boys and I are very into salads right now. And It’s my job to change it up with different and fun salad dressings to keep them interested. The scrumptious salad above is 100% from my garden. It includes a variety of lettuces, dino kale, tomatoes and cucumbers. I love sending the boys out to “pick” a dish that we will be having for dinner, and it’s great to hang out in the kitchen with them while they wash and ... read more →

This gluten free, dairy free and vegan Chocolate Sorbet recipe is an oldie but goodie from my recipe archives. What are these archives of which I speak? A binder with more than a thousand of my unpublished recipes. Anyway, this frozen treat is one of my mother-in-law’s favorite gluten free desserts, and she asks me to make it every time she comes to visit us.
Chocolate Sorbet is a perfect treat for summer parties, makes a great dessert after a simple family ... read more →

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.

Thanks everyone for your cupcake suggestions. The idea for these gluten free Coconut Key Lime Cupcakes came from comments left by sas and laura in my Jelly Donut Cupcake post –the post that launched my own personal month of cupcakes.
These gluten free cupcakes were a real winner with my children. Whenever I get out the icing bag, they go bonkers and yesterday was no different. I had to hold them back when they arrived home from school, so that I ... read more →

This gluten free Double Chocolate Orange Torte will make a nice treat for Passover, which is rapidly approaching!

½ cup chocolate chunks
½ cup blanched almond flour

I’m still on my grape seed flour kick and made these yummy Cabernet Cookies the other day which were “all gone” quite quickly. If you like the combination of red wine and chocolate, be sure to give these treats a try.
Grape seed flour is full of antioxidants, fiber and protein and adds a nice flavor and texture to baked goods. I’m loving experimenting with it these days. One more super food to add to the repertoire.

These yummy little protein-a-licious cookies are the result of a complimentary sample of Chardonnay Grapeseed Flour that I received from Eric Leber of AprèsVin. Grapeseed flour? Yes, you heard it right, grapeseed flour.
While these treats look like they are double chocolate chip cookies, they actually are not. It is high protein, antioxidant rich grapeseed flour that gives them their nice dark color. And yes, grapeseed flour comes in different flavors. This chardonnay grapeseed flour has a buttery taste and graham ... read more →
