Chocolate Berry Tart (Paleo, Grain-Free)

June 4, 2014

A berry and cream tart is one of my easy-to-prepare summer dessert staples. The fresh berries make it quite the show-stopper! I used a chocolate crust highlighted by a wonderful combination of sweet, chocolate and just a bit salty. Add some fluffy, sweet filling and top it with beautiful berries and you’ve got yourself one […]

Shrimp scampi in 20 minutes? Yes, please! Fresh shrimp, lemon, parsley, garlic and vegetable “noodles” make for a quick and vibrant spring meal. Recreating your favorite pasta dish with squash or zucchini “noodles” is super easy. You either need a vegetable slicer or a julienne peeler to create “noodles” from the squash or zucchini. In […]

I’m excited the message about real, unprocessed foods is slowly reaching the mainstream. Last week, the New York Times announced that a “large and exhaustive new analysis by a team of international scientists found no evidence that eating saturated fat increased heart attacks and other cardiac events.”.  This latest study only affirms this study from […]

White Bean Chicken Chili (Grain-Free)

One fun benefit of blogging and writing is the new cookbooks publishing houses often send me. Some I give away to friends, but some are so good I curl up in bed and read every word. The B.T.C. Old-Fashioned Grocery Cookbook arrived unexpectedly in the mail a few weeks ago. I read the title and spent at least 2 minutes trying to figure out what B.T.C […]

The Perfect Fudgy Brownie (Grain-Free, Paleo, Gluten Free)

February 6, 2014

Do you know what I mean? For over a year, I played with different brownie recipes, hoping to find “the one.” Mission accomplished. No […]

January 2, 2014

I often hear people complain about the “expense” of eating unprocessed food.

Not so “cheap” when you break it down, right? A few weeks ago, my […]

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 […]
