The Citrus Smash is a fresh juice that my younger son created and photographed on his own.
Looking for a refreshing way to start your day? Look no further. My younger son presents you with his Citrus Smash (which he both created and named). He loves using our juicer before going to school and after dinner to make delicious fresh fruit juices from scratch.
This fresh squeezed orange juice, spiked with grapefruit and lemon, is packed with vitamin C and bioflavonoids. He […]

Homemade and dairy free Peppermint Hot Chocolate to keep you warm and cozy on a cold winter’s night.
Peppermint Hot Chocolate is easy to make, and far better than the instant hot chocolate that comes in a package, which is loaded with sugar and definitely not dairy free. Additionally, I find this soothing and healthy beverage to be a great substitute for all of the peppermint candy floating around this time of year.
I make this dairy free hot chocolate with coconut […]

While I love homemade Hot Apple Cider, I find that this naturally sweet, cold cider drink is a festive alternative to the customary hot cider beverage. And since you’ll still be […]

I like to serve this delicious Orange Ginger Sauce with the gluten free Chicken Fingers from my book, The Gluten-Free Almond Flour Cookbook. It’s sweet enough that my children enjoy it and gingery enough for me –a perfect condiment for the entire family. I also like to dip steamed broccoli into this sauce. I hope you all enjoy it as much as we do!
With all of the cold weather we’re having here in Colorado, I’ve been relying on ginger quite […]

Once again, it’s all Joy the Baker’s fault. This scone obsession of mine. When I saw those cute little hand cut squares of Orange Chocolate Buttermilk Scones on her blog, joythebaker.com, I knew I had to make them mine. And I did. And then some.
So, here’s the latest in my scone series, gluten free Cranberry Orange Scones. As you can see, there is a strange “orangeness” on the top of my scones. That’s because I had a little extra zest […]

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 […]

This dark green, luscious shake is my go to drink when I need a little protein pick me up.
To me, the flavor of the kale is not that pronounced, what comes through is the creamy richness of the protein powder with the tart sweetness of the orange, thereby forming a yummy gluten-free, dairy-free creamsicle experience in a glass. Enjoy!
1 cup kale, chopped
1 whole orange, peeled and chopped
¼ cup water
1 scoop Frank Zane Egg White Protein Powder (or protein powder […]

This gluten free Double Chocolate Orange Torte will make a nice treat for Passover, which is rapidly approaching! My family, however, needed no holiday or excuse to devour the entire cake on a Sunday afternoon. This treat is easy to make and even easier to eat. Go ahead, try some and see for yourself.
Double Chocolate Orange Torte
½ cup chocolate chunks
½ cup blanched almond flour
¼ cup cacao powder

Many apple cider recipes have sugar added to them and are overly sweet, for my taste. This Homemade Hot Apple Cider recipe however goes in the other direction, I add water to it to dilute the natural sweetness of the apple juice. This also stretches the amount, making the recipe more economical.
I made this the other day during the super chilly weather and with it’s warming spices (cinnamon and cloves) it hit the spot.
Homemade Hot Apple Cider

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.

I’ve been busy with my book (The Gluten-Free Almond Flour Cookbook) lately and pumping out quick dinners. Still, I make my own salad dressings every night and this Mustard Marmalade Dressing is no exception.
I’m just back (less than an hour ago) from the ADA conference in Denver where I met many wonderful people and had a great time. The conference was at the Denver convention center and it was massive –there were probably 5,000 people there, maybe more and thankfully, […]

My younger son is a big fan of my Chipotle Orange Chicken and asks me to make it on a weekly basis. Since it’s perfect grilling weather, I decided to make a version of this recipe with chicken breasts that could easily be thrown on the grill –just in time for when they arrive home from baseball practice.
Yes, we’re back in baseball season, this time it’s fall ball.
I like to serve this tangy, gluten free chicken dish with grilled broccoli. […]

These vegan, gluten free Cranberry Orange Biscotti are delicious with a cup of tea or after dinner as a light (or lite) treat.
My younger son thinks these are delicious and packed some in his lunch last night for today…the last day of school. Summer. Hooray! The boys are very happy to be free. And play lots of baseball this summer. I’m looking forward to taking them to the pool and splashing around with them and their friends.

This delicious salad is full of a variety of flavors. The arugula is a buttery, bitter green and the oranges are sweet, sour and tangy. Spiking dinner salads with fruit is a great trick when it comes to getting children enthused about eating their greens. Works pretty well on green-phobic adults as well. My boys devoured this salad right alongside my husband and myself the other night at dinner.
This Orange Arugula Salad paired with Mustard Lime Chicken makes a delightful […]

While the boys were on break during the holidays we got really into kale. My older one prefers his steamed and tops it with ume plum vinegar and toasted sesame oil. The little one, however, joins us in eating my raw kale concoctions.
These raw salads are super healthy, crunchy and quite delicious. We are hooked on them.
Raw Kale Salad
1 bunch kale
1 tablespoon olive oil
¼ teaspoon celtic sea salt
1 lime, juiced
1 teaspoon balsamic vinegar
1 tablespoon red onion, finely […]

Unfortunately, the incoming Obama administration has potentially failed those of us that want to see a food revolution. Tom Vilsack, Governor of Iowa (and a good friend of multinational food corporations such as Monsanto) has been nominated Secretary of Agriculture. Rather than the promised change, we are facing more of the same. This is a problem.
To block confirmation of Vilsack, you can sign this online petition coordinated by the Organic Consumers Association. It will be sent to the President elect’s […]

Although I don’t drink alcohol, I do enjoy indulging in a sparkling beverage at festive events.
This little fruit based treat below is perfect for adults and children on special occasions. My boys love it, as do I. Here, I use pineapple juice, though feel free to use any juice of your choice and garnish with your favorite citrus or other fruits.
DIY Sparkling Beverage
2-3 (32 ounce) bottles sparkling water (I use Apollinaris)
1 (32oz) bottle fruit juice (I used pineapple, though anything […]

Fresh raw cranberries with dates, orange and lemon.
From the recipe archive: Originally posted in 2008. This homemade cranberry sauce is a perfect side for your healthy Paleo Thanksgiving dinner.
This sweet yet tart raw cranberry sauce is one of my favorite Thanksgiving dishes, in fact, it’s one of my favorite naturally gluten free dishes of all time!
Tart, tangy and full of healing properties, just last week I ate an entire test batch. I adore cranberries and stock up during this […]

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.

Healthy organic truffles are not only easy to make, they are bursting with flavor in every bite. In addition, these little treats are power packed with nutrients. And on top of that? My family has been devouring them.
The boys have been taking them to school in their lunches and yesterday I sent my father a package of the chocolate prune truffles (including a couple of these as well). Hi Dad! Hope you are enjoying the truffles :-)
