Strawberry Crisp

Posted on August 12, 2014

Strawberries are at their peak right now. They’re overflowing in our garden and at the local farmer’s market. While I love making strawberry pie (with Paleo Pie Crust), sometimes I want to make something simpler.

This Strawberry Crisp can be whipped up in minutes. It’s an easy gluten-free dessert that is made with only five ingredients –strawberries, almond flour, salt, butter, and slivered almonds. If you’re dairy-free, I also tested this recipe with palm shortening and it was delicious.

Have you seen Hallie Klecker’s new book The Pure Kitchen?

This cookbook is a lovely collection of healthy gluten free, dairy free recipes. I absolutely love the “Energizing Breakfasts” section which contains quick and easy smoothie recipes full of superfoods; the book also contains wonderful recipes such as Spring Pesto Drizzle, which is packed with healthy greens.

I had the pleasure of meeting Hallie at a conference last year, and can assure you she is every bit as lovely in person ... read more →

Strawberry Sorbet

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.

Chocolate Strawberry Shortcake

This simple gluten free shortcake recipe is easy enough to make with your children

One summer evening as I baked countless batches of gluten free cookies, my older son popped into the kitchen. Determined to join me in my culinary adventures, he decided to make gluten free strawberry shortcake from scratch (as in using no cookbook or recipe). The twist?  He’s a chocolate lover, so he made Chocolate Strawberry Shortcake.

As you may know, Jewish mothers tend to think of their sons ... read more →

Keep Your Hands Off Our Strawberries

Everybody loves strawberries.  At least everybody I know.  They’re an absolute favorite food in our house.  Luckily, we are fortunate enough to have access to, and can afford organic strawberries.  For those who are not so lucky, sadly, the dangers are many.  First and foremost, a toxic pesticide called methyl iodide is used to grow our favorite berry, and according to John Froines of UCLA, it is “one of the most toxic chemicals on ... read more →

Given how hot it’s been around here lately, the boys have been jonesing for ice cream, and I’m more than happy to indulge them with my homemade, frozen treats.  They’ve been asking for a chocolate cherry ice cream, which may be coming here soon.  For now, enjoy this gluten free, dairy free Cherry Strawberry Ice Cream.

Strawberry Lime Shake

Posted on April 16, 2010

I’m loving this gluten free, dairy free Strawberry Lime Shake made of fresh homemade coconut milk.  My boys love it too.  After I took a picture of the shake yesterday and placed it in the fridge, the boys grabbed it greedily and drank it all down.  They have a certain penchant for consuming my photo shoots like that.

Here’s the recipe so you can make your own.

Strawberry Vanilla Bean Ice Cream

Posted on June 18, 2009

My boys love this vegan Strawberry Ice “Cream.”  I made a batch and it was gone in a couple of hours.  So I made more and my husband got in on the act, consuming his share.

It is made with a coconut milk base and I added quite a bit of vanilla, in hopes of drowning out the coconutty flavor, as I did not want to make a coconut ice cream.  I think I succeeded, though you all can be the ... read more →

Simple Fruit Salad

Posted on May 21, 2009

My children love to have fruit salad as an after school snack.  I often serve it to them with organic yogurt, adding a bit of vanilla and agave nectar to the yogurt.

It’s just about fruit season here in Colorado and everything is starting to look luscious.  We have strawberries ripening on the plants in the front yard and peaches (still green) on our peach tree in the back.  Right now however, even though I’m harvesting mountains of kale and ... read more →
