Blueberry French Toast Casserole

Posted on May 8, 2013

Blueberry French Toast Casserole made with Paleo Bread is a mouthwatering Paleo Mother’s Day treat for the whole family.

Mother’s Day is coming up, and what better way to start Sunday than to prepare a batch of this healthy French toast made with my Paleo Bread dipped in a coconut milk-based batter. This Paleo brunch recipe is based on one called Bradley Inn Blueberry French Toast Casserole that I found in our local paper, the Daily Camera, in December 2007.

I suggest […]

Slow Food

Posted on May 3, 2013

Access to clean food is a basic human rights issue; hence my passion for the Slow Food movement.

I like food. You may have guessed as much by perusing the 700 recipes on my website. You may also notice that it is gluten-free, grain-free recipes that have appeared here since 2006, the year I launched this site. In fact, I have been on a grain-free diet for more than a decade. Not because I think it’s the “right” way to eat; […]

Paleo Passover Recipes

Posted on April 2, 2012

Paleo recipes take your gluten free seder to the next level of healthiness.

Although I’ve been grain free since 2001, this will be our first strictly Paleo Passover seder. I’m sharing my seder menu since the requests for Paleo Passover recipes are coming in a mile a minute.

Many of these gluten free Passover recipes are traditional Jewish fare and can be used for other Jewish holidays as well –think Squash Pie, which I serve as kugel.

I hope this menu will make […]

Gluten Free Tu B’shevat

Posted on January 26, 2012

What is Tu B’shevat you ask? Why it is the holiday of trees established by the Talmudic rabbis sometime between the 3rd to 5th century –the early part of the Middle Ages.

As the daughter of liberal Jewish activists (my parents met at a civil rights meeting in the 1960’s) I’ve always been really into this holiday which is described by wikipedia as follows:

Tu Bishvat is considered by secular Israeli Jews and organizations to be the Jewish […]

Weekly Paleo Meal Plan

Posted on January 3, 2012

This Paleo Plan is for my friend Leslie Dietrich. Our children play baseball together and Leslie and I had the pleasure of thrift shopping our way through Waco, Texas last summer when their team was in the Regional Little League World Series Playoffs.

Like me, Leslie has a host of auto-immune disorders. Unlike me, she still eats gluten and grains. Leslie asked me for an eating plan that she could try for one week to see if the symptoms in […]

10 Healthy Christmas Cookie Recipes

Posted on December 10, 2011

After I saw Recipe Girl’s beautiful post, “25 Favorite Christmas Recipes,” I knew I’d have to do a similar gluten free post. You see, like everybody else, I’ve been slightly obsessed with Christmas desserts this month.

However, unlike many people, I’m Jewish, so I have a certain lack of confidence when it comes to identifying recipes that are Christmas friendly. Now, thanks to everyone who responded to my self-conscious twitter queries regarding Christmas-worthy cookie recipes I just might be in the […]

Paleo Thanksgiving Recipes

Make your Thanksgiving meal one of abundance AND health with these easy nutritious Paleo recipes.

A completely Paleo Thanksgiving menu –all gluten free, grain free and sugar free, including many delicious superfoods. Ten recipes for appetizers, salad, dinner, dessert and more.

For decades my father has said “eat the rainbow,” and Thanksgiving is the perfect time to do just that. Each year, we have a variety of gorgeous, colorful dishes on the table, from the green of kale and brussel sprouts, to […]

Gluten Free Easter Recipes

Posted on April 18, 2011

The spring holidays (Easter and Passover) mark my favorite time of year. The ground begins to thaw, buds make their way up through the soil and the ground comes alive again. Year after year, my garden is reborn after a deep sleep –signs of transformation abound. As everything in my yard wakes up, a renewed hope and the promise of abundance emerge as well. This lovely time of transformation is the perfect backdrop for Passover and Easter.

Since Easter is in less than a […]

Gluten Free Recipes for St. Patrick’s Day

Posted on March 16, 2011

Lots going on here with a double header holiday week that includes both St. Patrick’s Day and Purim.  All of the festivities are keeping me quite busy. Luckily, I have not attempted to make green Hamantaschen, though if things keep progressing at this rate I just might.

Here are some of my favorite gluten free St. Patrick’s Day recipes.  They run the gamut from Peppermint Patties to Irish Soda Bread to a green shake –a little bit of something for everyone.

Passover Menu

Posted on March 29, 2010

My mother and father will be spending Passover with us and I am really looking forward to it.  Mom and I will be in the kitchen all day today preparing for our gluten free Seder –she has celiac too, as do my older son, sister and mother-in-law.  Gluten free is a family affair for us.

Here’s what we’ll be making for Passover 2010.  Pretty much my standard Passover Seder menu.

Charoset
Maror
Matzoh Ball Soup
Chipotle Orange Chicken
Carrot “Kugel”
Coconut Macaroons
Passover Torte

Looking for a gluten free […]

Leftover Chicken Recipe Roundup

Posted on December 31, 2009

The other day, one of my favorite commenters  suggested that I post a roundup of leftover chicken recipes; actually at this point I would probably call ~M (that’s the handle she uses when commenting on my site)  a “contributor.”

I quickly took to ~M’s idea since this time of year so many of us are suffering from post holiday cooking fatigue.  If you have leftover chicken or turkey from the holidays or if you want to throw a bird in the […]

Christmas Recipe Roundup

Posted on December 22, 2009

Here’s a round-up of some of my favorite Christmas recipes.  We’ve been going wild with the Star Cookies lately, pulling out all of our cookie cutters and making them in every possible shape, then frosting them with the Creamy Cream Cheese Frosting.  The boys (and I) are having a blast.

I’ve been taking it easy this week and spending a lot of time reading –books that is.  I usually find myself just trying to keep up with the Boulder Daily Camera […]

Hanukkah Recipe Roundup

Posted on December 7, 2009

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.

Roasted Chicken with Olives and Prunes
Kale with Cranberries
Butternut Squash Latkes
Raw […]

Appetizers for a Holiday Party

Posted on December 4, 2009

Big news in the gluten free world. The Denver Post has named The Gluten-Free Almond Flour Cookbook one of the best cookbooks of 2009.

The reason I find this to be somewhat amazing is that some people out there look down on gluten free; some have even told me that  gluten free food has a “stigma” attached to it. So for my little old book to be included with “regular” cookbooks, seems like a bit of a breakthrough.

Along these […]

Dealing with Chronic Disease

Posted on October 21, 2009

Looking for tips for healthy eating? Look no further. Just the other day I received this touching email from one of my readers Nicole, a young woman dealing with Fibromyalgia and Chronic Fatigue Syndrome. I won’t get started on the health insurance aspect of her words. Sometimes that issue is absolutely heart breaking.

In any event, as you will see below, Nicole has written to me for advice on what to eat. In spite of this site, I […]

Kale-o-rama

Posted on October 15, 2009

Tis the season for kale.  Kale is one of those naturally gluten free super nutritious foods; according to my family it is delicious as well.  It is our green of choice for many a dinner as you can see from all of the gluten free kale recipes below.

Kelly over at celiacchicks.com just posted about kale chips (which I love) and inspired me to get this long awaited kale post launched.  Here goes…

How to Prepare and Store Kale

Kale Almond Pesto

Rosh Hashanah Recipes

Posted on September 17, 2009

Rosh Hashanah is tomorrow at sundown and although I’m a tad behind in my planning, we are getting ready.  Thus far, I have put together the below menu.  I’ve been perusing Claudia Roden’s The Book of Jewish Food for additional ideas, as she is one of my favorite cookbook authors.  Of all time.

Although I will not be making the challah that is listed below, I thought others might enjoy using this recipe for the holiday.  I think the recipe […]
