Grain Free & Vegan Huckleberry Scones

We’re nearing the end of summer and you know what that means… Dread of winter? Living on hot cocoa? Hairy legs? Pumpkin spice everything? Hibernation? Well maybe…but not just yet. What nearing the end of summer means in the Northwest is … Huckleberry Season! They…

Carrot Cake Pancakes with Cinnamon Syrup

I have a file box where I keep interesting and creative ideas for recipes that I either come up with myself, or that I find in magazines and elsewhere. It’s full of exciting things that I’ve labeled “re-create” because they don’t fit a gluten…

Grain Free Pumpkin Pancakes

It’s not too late to indulge in all things pumpkin spice. I know many of you have a love hate relationship with the pumpkin spice movement that hits with a frenzy every year in October. If that’s true, you don’t need to add the…

Apple Dutch Baby & A New Look For The Blog

When the cold weather hits, thoughts of juicing, avocado toast, and omelettes filled with fresh vegetables seem to dance right out of my head. Then visions of baked goodies, chai lattes, hot tea, skillet dishes, and hearty comfort foods come dancing onto the scene….

Nut & Groat Granola

It’s been so long since I’ve done a blog post I was a little worried that I’d forgotten how! I’m finding it easier time-wise to post quickly in “real time”, on Instagram Stories and on my Gluten Free Zen Facebook page. I do love…

Grain Free & Dairy Free Pumpkin Pancakes

I’ve noticed when pumpkin season rolls around, people are either beyond thrilled about it, or hate it. You already know where I stand. I can’t imagine hating such an amazing smelling, soothing, set of spices…but to each his own. These are just a spin…

Grain Free Cinnamon Date Rolls

Living a grain free life is not an easy row to hoe. Existing on just meat, fish, vegetables, and fruit is fabulously anti inflammatory and healthy, but every now and then we need a little treat. Something that says comfort and makes the house…

Reaching Out, Authenticity, and Some Pretty Amazing Chocolate Crepes

I’m thinking I need to have chocolate crepes for breakfast more often. When is chocolate not a good idea? Uhhhh..never. I woke up  feeling like I can only guess what a curmudgeonly 90 year old feels like. Stiff and tired and brain foggy and grumpy. When…

Grain Free Pumpkin Pecan Coffee Cake

I know, I know. It’s a little early for all things pumpkin. For most people it’s like cilantro, they either hate all the Fall flavored stuff or love it. I’m obviously in the last category. Even though our days are still in the 80’s and 90’s,…

Cinnamon Spice Crepes with Coconut Sugared Peaches

About 10 years ago I figured out I could no longer tolerate cow’s milk dairy. I was feeling so awful. My stomach felt like someone was holding it in their hand, I was getting migraines all the time, my sinuses were constantly stuffy…I just…

Baked Potato, Spinach, & Egg Scramble

I am an early riser. Usually around 4:30 but no later than 5:30. This morning I wasn’t hungry when it was time for breakfast so instead, I waited until about 10:30 to have breakfast when I would normally be craving a mid morning snack….
