6 Ingredient Slow Cooker Pot Roast (Grain-Free, Paleo)

There’s a sign outside my local grocery store touting, “All-Natural, Antibiotic-Free Chicken Breasts.” It makes me a little upset every time I see it. Why? This kind of marketing lingo is a very sneaky way to make feedlot, grain-fed chicken sound like a healthy option. It’s technically accurate, but it would be more accurate to say […]

Frozen Yogurt and a Discussion on Feeling Stressed About Food

July 31, 2014

Over the years, I’ve discovered how great an impact food has on my health. I’ve made huge changes in my diet to help me heal from disease, but sometimes I struggle with being too strict. For years I avoided all grains. I never cheated – ever. I didn’t realize how unusual that was until I […]

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. […]

Grain-Free Hamburger Buns (Nut-Free)

June 19, 2014

I’ve been eating bunless hamburgers for years now and I love ‘em, but a few months ago I just got tired of it and really wanted a bun. And not just any bun – I wanted a bun that didn’t taste like nuts or have a heavy, dense texture. I wanted a bun that tastes […]

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 […]
