Grain Free Banana Muffins

I give these banana muffins an 8 on the 1-10 likability scale. The number one being awful and ten being perfect. They’re grain free, gluten free (of course), dairy free, and refined sugar free. They’re moist and fluffy. They aren’t overly sweet but they…

Powerhouse Candybars

These candy bars are packed with protein and all kinds of ingredients that are not only delicious, but extremely good for you. They’re simple to make. You know how I am about fussy recipes. I avoid them if I can. Just make sure you…

When In Doubt ~ Go Flourless

Are you as unimpressed with grain free living as I am? Do you just want to make a quick batch of fresh cookies after dinner that doesn’t require 12 different ingredients and the unsettling chance that no one will like them? Well then, flourless…

Say Goodbye to The Dirt ~ My Corner of The World

The majority of the landscaping for this season has been completed.  What a relief! Remember the cracked driveway I told you about? (The fence workers drove their big truck on our driveway and broke the concrete.) That has one more day of dry time…

Forever Searching For That Perfect Sandwich Bread

Sandwich bread is the number one complaint and the most sought after item by people who are gluten-free and/or grain free. Seriously, I cannot believe with the information and technology we have today that no one has been able to make the perfect gluten-free, grain free,…

Simple Chicken Dinner & A Fabulous Fallen Cake

Simple is my middle name these days. I used to just relish working on recipes that had a gazillion steps and were a labor of love to create. Now, I still aim for fabulous and crave fantastic, but the first thought on my mind is…

Buckwheat & Coconut Flour Pancakes

I’ve been doing a lot of reading on this whole Paleo thing. The concept behind Paleo in a nutshell, is eating only things that our early ancestors ate. Basically, if a caveman couldn’t hunt it or find it, you can’t eat it. I very…

Anti Inflammatory Smoothie

“There are literally hundreds of illnesses caused by chronic inflammation that modern medicine has classified as unique and unrelated, when in fact they are all products of the same underlying imbalances inside the body. When the root causes of these imbalances are properly addressed,…
