Paleo Bagels are perfect for a festive low-carb brunch. They’re fantastic toasted, then topped with smoked salmon and scrambled eggs, along with tomato or cucumber. If you can consume dairy, Paleo Bagels are wonderful with organic cultured cream cheese.
When I went grain-free in 2001, I thought my love affair with bagels had come to an end. But these grain-free bagels from my third cookbook, Paleo Cooking from Elana’s Pantry, have made that thought a moot point. Paleo Bagels also make ... read more →

This is not your typical Date Walnut Bread, this is Paleo Date Walnut Bread. This bread is purely fruit sweetened, and has no honey, maple syrup, agave or other processed sweeteners. Because of this, the bread is not as sweet, or dessert-like as other breads of mine such as Cranberry Walnut Bread.

Paleo breakfast bars made with almond flour, coconut oil, shredded coconut, pumpkin seeds, sunflower seeds, and raisins.
This recipe for Paleo Breakfast Bars is an amended version of a recipe I posted in 2009. I have rewritten this recipe for several reasons.
First, although a number of people swore by it, others commented that the bars came out crumbly for them. Second, the original recipe was not Paleo as it contained grapeseed oil and agave (for more information on which foods are ... read more →

Spicy ginger and tart lime team up to make a mean mocktail.
I don’t drink alcohol, however, I absolutely love fun, girly drinks in fancy glasses. Hence, this deliciously refreshing, non-alcoholic beverage that I am calling a Ginger Lime Mocktail. I think you could also call this sparkling zesty drink liquid superfood. The ginger is full of anti-oxidants, good for digestion and is also anti-viral and anti-fungal. The lime juice is packed with Vitamin C and bioflavanoids.
Today was our first beautiful ... read more →

I have been a huge fan of Michael Ruhlman’s book Ratio for quite some time. His work really came to life for me when I saw him speak at Blogher Food last year. He conveys his love of good food in a passionate manner, which I find compelling.So, when my friend Silvana invited me to participate in this month’s Ratio Rally, I said yes, even though I have not really baked using ratios and scales. I am definitely a numbers ... read more →

As a Jew, Irish Soda Bread would not be something that comes naturally to me. However, over the years, I’ve received numerous requests for a gluten free, dairy free, gum free, high protein Irish Soda Bread. Well, here you have it.
Given that all things Irish are not my native habitat, I had to do some research to actually figure out what Irish Soda Bread is. Here’s what Wikipedia had to say about it:

The recipe for these gluten free crackers comes from my friend Betsy
Don’t be confused by these gluten free Multi “Grain” Crackers. Because they are in fact gluten free and grain-free. That’s right, these crackers don’t contain grains. What are they made of? They contain a multitude of high protein, high fiber superfoods including almonds, flax and hemp.

All of you regular readers know that I have an obsession with making healthy (ok, “healthier”) gluten free cake pops. Well, this obsession continues for Valentine’s Day.
I spent an afternoon in my kitchen last week in total chocolate chaos. I even tweeted about it (if you’re not involved in the party that’s over on twitter you may want to join, I’m there several times daily, tweeting away). On twitter I stated, or shall I say, tweeted, “my kitchen is covered ... read more →

It really is Joy the Baker’s fault. I have been baking scones every day since I read her post for Orange and Dark Chocolate Buttermilk Scones. I knew I would have to make my own gluten free version. So I did. And it’s scone mania over here. It’s gotten so bad that last weekend I made 5 batches of scones. All gluten free of course.
Joy, I wish I was your gluten free neighbor. And by the way, I do not ... read more →

We had a huge snowstorm here last night and I made my family a batch of this warming Mexican Hot Chocolate. A hot drink is perfect for a cold day, and it’s even better when warming spices such as cinnamon, chili and cayenne are added.
There is a ton of cinnamon in this recipe, so if you’re not a cinnamon fan, you might want to reduce the amount from 1 tablespoon to 1 teaspoon. Why do I use so much cinnamon? ... read more →
