Homemade Hot Cocoa Mix

January 28, 2014

Our local schools are closed for two snow days. Snow, here on the gulf coast of Florida! I know many of you have major winter storms in your forecast and you might think us silly for canceling school due to icy roads, but all the kids are elated, keeping watch out the windows for flakes […]

Zucchini Noodles with Bacon, Brussels Sprouts and Hazelnuts

January 16, 2014

I recently started experimenting with some old-favorite pasta dishes, replacing the pasta with zucchini noodles. I discovered something wonderful: as long as I let the zucchini sit with some sea salt to pull out the bitter flavor and toss it quickly at the end of the recipe, it makes for a fantastic substitute. I pulled […]

How to Remove Gallstones Naturally

January 9, 2014

A few years ago when I was struggling with severe symptoms of Hashimoto’s disease I also began having pain in my right flank area. After a few tests, my doctor concluded I had gallstones and advised me to have my gall bladder removed. At that time I was in so much physical pain from the chronic […]

Thick, Homemade Yogurt (with Dairy-Free Option)

January 7, 2014

I enjoy making homemade yogurt, but for years my version wasn’t as thick as the store-bought variety. So I experimented and found that adding a bit of grass-fed gelatin to the warm milk makes the yogurt thick and creamy. I tested this recipe with coconut milk and fresh unpasteurized milk; both methods worked perfectly. While I […]

How Much Does Real Food Really Cost?

January 2, 2014

I often hear people complain about the “expense” of eating unprocessed food. If we really take a closer look and compare prices, though, unprocessed foods provide far better value: Does that make you think twice about the cost of processed foods? Not so “cheap” when you break it down, right? A few weeks ago, my […]

Lentil Soup with Swiss Chard and Sausage and Giveaway

December 19, 2013

Frozen vegetables save me time during the hurried times of the year. I used to add raw spinach or chard to soups and stews until I realized its takes almost 2 pounds of raw greens to equal 6 cups of frozen greens. One of my new favorites is Earthbound Farms Organic Swiss chard (they even […]

The Perfect Molasses Cookie (Grain Free, Paleo, Gluten Free)

December 10, 2013

These are grain free?!” That’s what Pete said after he took his first bite of a freshly-baked molasses cookie. I laughed. I haven’t used grains in my cooking for over two years – of course it was grain-free! Quite the compliment, actually. I watched as he went back for two more cookies. When Pete goes […]

Holiday Vegetables and Dip and a Christmas List

December 6, 2013

Isn’t this such a festive way to display veggies and dip? I can’t take full credit, I saw a picture of this in the December issue of Rachael Ray and recreated it for the kids. I cut the cucumbers in half lengthwise, trimmed the bottom of the halved cucumber so it was flat on one […]
