It’s good to be back! I took the last couple of weeks off to relax and vacation with my family. Each summer, Pete and I rent a cabin for a week to relax while our kids head off to Kanakuk Kamps. Unplugging and taking time off is so important for our health, yet people often […]

Strawberry Meringue Cake (Grain-Free)

July 1, 2014

Of all the desserts I’ve ever eaten, this is my absolute favorite. I found the recipe in Nigella Lawson’s book, Forever Summer, many years ago and made it one evening on a whim. I had invited a dear friend and her children over for dinner. Her husband had deployed to an overseas location that day. […]

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 […]

Chocolate Pudding Pie (Grain-Free, Paleo)

When I was a kid, each Sunday after church my family would hop into the station wagon and make our way to Highland Park Cafeteria in Dallas for lunch. I loved that place. The people were friendly and I could pick whatever I wanted from the cafeteria line (a dream for any kid!). Each week […]

Our family has been very busy the last few weeks as school begins to wind down. I’ve made lots of stir-fry for dinner because it’s quick, easy and I can prep everything in the morning. Teriyaki chicken is a kid favorite and I love it because it has a short list of ingredients and after the […]

Why You Shouldn’t Eat Raw Kale and the Perfect Green Smoothie Recipe

May 5, 2014

Kale contains many beneficial nutrients, but it’s not good idea to eat these hearty leafy greens raw.

Orange Chicken Recipe (Paleo, Grain-Free)

Orange chicken is a favorite in our house. Crispy, fried chicken with a sweet orange glaze is pretty hard to pass up! It’s great served over cauliflower fried rice or if you can tolerate grains, you can serve it over properly prepared brown rice. My kids love the addition of broccoli in stir-fry, but can also add […]

Pad Thai is a classic take-out favorite and is quite easily made at home. You’ll need to do a bit of chopping and mixing, but once you prep all the ingredients, it only takes 15 minutes to cook on the stove. My very favorite recipe for Pad Thai comes from Cook’s Illustrated. I adapted their […]
