These peanut butter cookies are gluten free, grain free and vegan to boot. I based them on Heidi’s Peanut Butter Cookie recipe over at 101 Cookbooks, one of my favorite websites. Though I did cut the amount of sweetener in half and make a couple of other changes.
I have been on a bit of a peanut butter kick lately. I didn’t eat peanut butter for a long time. I just didn’t feel great when I ate it, however, I’m feeling ... read more →

I’m absolutely thrilled that Lillian of Lillian’s Test Kitchen, made this video of my Double Chocolate Cherry Cookies. Lillian, a professional actress and the best vlogger I know, creates videos of her favorite gluten free recipes –what could be better for those on a gluten free diet?
In this video Lillian demonstrates in her own inimitable, wacky way, how to make gluten free cookies from The Gluten-Free Almond Flour Cookbook. For more great video recipes make sure to head over ... read more →

Summer is definitely here and our house is the place to be. The neighborhood boys congregate on our trampoline –with the sprinklers aimed at it for a good cool down and a great deal of healthy fun.
With all of this activity I keep the food flowing morning, noon and night. From the time they arrive until dinner (sometimes a bunch of them stay for the evening meal too) I am setting out munchies –snacks, lunch, etc. They really are a ... read more →

These gluten free Chocolate Almond Joy Bars were inspired by Carrie of GingerLemonGirl.com who wrote a recipe for Almond Joy Impossible Pie. Who doesn’t like the combination of chocolate, almonds and coconut in the form of a high protein, gluten free treat?
I don’t generally discuss nutrition because I assume most people who find this site know that that my recipes are different than most other gluten free offerings. Ingredients such as almond flour and coconut flour do not compare to ... read more →

This high protein, Dairy-Free Chocolate Mousse is made with anti-oxidant rich dark chocolate and contains no dairy products –a double win. I’ve also used coconut palm sugar to sweeten it.
Summer is moving along for us over here. The boys made over $300 at their lemonade stand last weekend during the Mapleton Hill rummage sale. They ran the stand with 2 other friends and baked tons of cookies from scratch for their little business. I was so proud of them. Maybe ... read more →

These super duper healthy, yet easy to make Fudge Babies have recently been the source of much contention. You see, it all started when I did the giveaway for a Cuisinart Food Processor a couple of weeks ago. In that post, I asked readers to let me know of their favorite recipes using a Cuisinart. There were 2,204 comments on that post. Guess what? I read each and every one of them. No joke.
The comments were fascinating. First, I love ... read more →

This scrumptious, dairy free, gluten free, vegan, super transportable snack is a power bar in the form of balls. What I love most about it though is the flavor –they taste like raw cookie dough!
This recipe came from a comment on my Cuisinart Giveaway post, left by Karen; it is also similar to another recipe that many people mentioned on that post as their fave recipe, called Fudge Babies. Since these have just a tad sweeter than Fudge ... read more →

I met Silvana last year at Blogher Food and felt an instant connection with her. She is magnetic in a smart, sophisticated, New York kinda way, and I was more than happy to spend a full day at the conference sitting with her for every session and sharing breaks together chatting.
During the day, our stories unfolded, and we learned that in terms of our children, we have much in common. Silvana, the former editor-in-chief at Rachael Ray Everyday, began cooking ... read more →

I love fudge, I do. The only trouble with it is that most fudge is so sweet I usually feel sick to my stomach after eating it. Needless to say, it’s been years, maybe even decades, since I’ve had fudge.
However, when I stumbled across this recipe for Peanut Butter Fudge by Laura Dolson, I knew I could have my fudge and eat it too! Her recipe uses peanut butter (instead of the usual butter), and alternative sweeteners, rather than sugar. ... read more →

I came up with the recipe for this Cinnamon Pecan Brittle when I messed up a recipe from Dorie Greenspan’s lovely cookbook, Around My French Table.
I had thought I was making Spiced Nuts, though when I pulled these out of the oven, I realized that I had actually made a scrumptious nut brittle. So, I made the recipe several additional times, tweaking each version along the way until I was pleased with this new permutation.

I was thrilled to have the darling Kelly and her adorable family over for dinner during one night of Hanukkah a couple of weeks ago. We made a delicious meal using various recipes from each of our cookbooks and websites, and then had the absolutely scrumptious dessert pictured above: Banana Coconut Cream Pie (made by Kelly, a recipe from her 2nd book) with Sunbutter Ice Cream (made by me, another recipe from Kelly’s awesome 2nd book).
Kelly also brought over some ... read more →

I am digging this yummy Christmas Chocolate Bark. Studded with rich pistachios, tart dried cranberries, and speckled with coarse chunks of salt, it’s a winner.
I believe the ideas for this flavor combo came from the fabulous Alison. I think this bark would make a wonderful gift for the holidays. Just don’t eat too much of it, as it’s very addictive.

Update: this giveaway has ended and the winner was Susan!
This year, I’m making many of the holiday gifts that I’ll be giving. One of my favorite things to give, that you might also like to give to your friends and family, is this homemade cookie mix.
This high protein, gluten free cookie mix is quick and easy to make. Further, you are giving a friend or loved one a very special present –the opportunity to have the smell of fresh baked ... read more →

Let us now praise all things pumpkin. I’m kinda obsessed with gluten free, dairy free pumpkin dishes right now, hence the vegan Pumpkin Ice Cream here, and the Pumpkin Bars earlier this week. And let us not forget the Pumpkin Pie Muffins of last year either.
This pumpkin pie ice cream is a delicious fall treat whether served at Halloween or Thanksgiving. For more information on pumpkin mania, check out this funny article from Esquire called Some Pumpkin Flavoring Best Avoided ... read more →

This Chocolate Ice Cream is perfect for summer’s end, which usually corresponds with the upcoming Labor Day holiday (stay tuned for a Healthy Labor Day Recipe Roundup post later this week!); the added spices warm up this vegan gluten free dessert for chilly Fall nights approaching.
My recipe is based on one from Elise of Simply Recipes –she has a great traditional Mexican Chocolate Ice Cream recipe that uses cream and eggs, which you might like to take a look at.
Mexican ... read more →

This gluten free, dairy free and vegan Chocolate Sorbet recipe is an oldie but goodie from my recipe archives. What are these archives of which I speak? A binder with more than a thousand of my unpublished recipes. Anyway, this frozen treat is one of my mother-in-law’s favorite gluten free desserts, and she asks me to make it every time she comes to visit us.
Chocolate Sorbet is a perfect treat for summer parties, makes a great dessert after a simple family ... read more →

This new and improved gluten free Peach Crisp was a lot of fun to shoot and even more fun to eat. I’m loving (rather than dreading) taking pictures ever since I took the Food and Light Photography Workshop.
Why another Peach Crisp? Well, a number of you had left comments on my “old” Peach Crisp recipe, mentioning that the topping seemed wet. So, I went back and tried the recipe myself. I wrote that recipe 2 years ago and I guess ... read more →

My children loved this gluten free Cherry Blueberry Crumble made from fresh ripe fruit. As you can see, they placed a huge dollop of Whipped Cream on top.
