Many of you had questions about Marcona almonds when I posted my recipe for Marcona Almond Mayonnaise, so I thought I would take the time to provide some answers. Here’s the first question from one of my favorite readers:
“Is there a difference in taste or texture between Marcona almonds & regular almonds? I know the Marcona almonds are from Spain so maybe (and hopefully) these are truly raw almonds (they’re not so obsessed with pasteurization in Europe).”
To answer this question […]

I’m slightly addicted to these Vanilla Roasted Walnuts and so is my husband. They have a hint of sweetness and a nice burst of vanilla goodness. On top of that, Walnuts are a great source of Omega-3’s, have a high antioxidant count and are also beneficial for cardiovascular health. So I’m on the walnut bandwagon.
Here’s the recipe for another gluten free, tasty, higher protein holiday snack with nuts.
Vanilla Roasted Walnuts
2 cups walnuts, raw
1 tablespoon olive oil
2 tablespoons agave nectar or honey

Here’s another recipe for delicious gluten free candied nuts. I love making candied nuts for the holidays. They’re the perfect gluten free dessert, appetizer or snack. And they make a great gift too. The homemade version is much cheaper than store bought, tastes fresher and you know exactly what’s in ‘em!
If you love macadamia nuts, you might like to take a look at the recipe for Ginger Macadamia Brownies in my gluten free cookbook, The Gluten-Free Almond Flour Cookbook. Meanwhile, […]

I love making candied nuts during the holiday season. There’s something very festive about them and they are satisfyingly sweet and filling at the same time. Lately I’ve been on a candied pecans kick. They’re super easy to make and my husband loves them.
You could jazz up this recipe with some spices like cinnamon and cayenne (I think both together would be delicious), however I’ve been enjoying the simplicity of merely sweetening the nuts lately. These nuts make one delicious […]

I was reading our local paper yesterday and saw an article on Rosemary Fig Crackers (glutenoid of course) and decided I had to make my own gluten-free version (or g-free, if you prefer).
These gluten free crackers are super easy to make and delicious as well. My husband gave me the thumbs up on them.
Rosemary Fig Crackers
1½ cups blanched almond flour
½ teaspoon celtic sea salt
1 teaspoon rosemary, minced
3-4 dried figs, chopped
1 tablespoon olive oil
In a large mixing bowl, stir […]

I recently received this comment from a reader who subscribes to my email feed:
“I’m not interested in non-raw food recipes–as perhaps many others who view your postings. Perhaps you could, to avoid wasting such people’s time, simply note that this is a cooked food recipe, and then people can make an informed choice.”
I laughed upon reading it. Until I realized it was not a joke, it was serious. I thought of unsubscribing the poor fellow, so as not to waste […]

I love apple sauce in any weather. The thought of turning on the oven to make some right now? Or lighting up the stove? In this heat? Not a good one. What to do? Make raw apple sauce. It’s tart, tangy, refreshing and delicious. On top of that, “uncooking” cuts back on energy consumption. It also keeps the house nice and cool –as cool as it can be on these 90 […]

Inspiration struck today. As did its friend creativity. The sun was bright for the third day in a row over here in Colorado and my faith in all things good returned. Whatever had a hold of me –seasonal affective disorder, Mercury in retrograde, who knows, who cares –it’s gone! I took a long slow walk and saw the last patches of melting snow, flowers popping up through mud and upon arriving home, I observed sap running down the maples in […]

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, […]
