Papaya and Fennel Salad with Blueberry Dressing (Paleo / AIP)

disclaimer: this post may contain affiliate links.

Developing recipes has, simply, become a joy for me. Discovering how flavors intermingle, weighing the flavor combinations, is like a meditation. Of course, finding ways to turn American classics into beloved AIP versions is still a goal. But this summer, my desire is to look for delicious, fun, and new kinds of flavors. Dispel the …

Grilled Peaches with Lime Dip (Paleo / AIP)

disclaimer: this post may contain affiliate links.

When I set out to make this recipe, I initially despaired: how would I find peaches a month before peach season had even begun? Then, serendipitously, I met my newest neighbor, Katie. Katie, it turned out, was related to the Dickeys, owners of Dickey Farms, in Musella, GA. And guess what Dickey Farms had?! In …

Beet Pancakes with Blueberries (Paleo, AIP)

If you love beets, you will love these pancakes! Even if you don’t love beets, you’ll still love them! Even though they pack a solid nutritional punch, the beets used here don’t impart any “beet” flavor. They are a perfect way to celebrate July 4th brunch – or any old time of year! My original …

Raspberry White Chocolate Donuts

Donuts. Unfortunately, donuts and I don’t share the very best of memories. When I was in the throes of my eating disorder, I would binge on them. And then, there was teaching. Teaching was a complex experience, and I could never say that it was unequivocally “good” or “bad”.  There were many beautiful, absolutely transcendent …

Strawberry Cream Eggs

Easter brings to mind my faith, bunnies, spring, and of course, chocolate covered cream eggs. It’s no secret I love chocolate but knowing how it doesn’t always love me back, I wanted to make a chocolate covered egg that was both AIP and totally delicious.

I’m always on the hunt for recipes that are only fruit-sweetened. Not just for me, but for my whole family. I try to make one weekly “treat” we can all enjoy. Not only because AIP treats are something I can enjoy, but because they’re healthier for everyone in my family. Let’s face it, the Paleo …

Peppermint “Chocolate” Bars (AIP, Paleo)…Plus a Review of NYC’s Hu Kitchen!!

Yesterday, I took my daughter to NYC, for a fun mommy-daughter day. We went to the American Girl store for lunch, saw “the” tree, visited Santa at Macy’s, and more. Actually, the highlight of the day for me personally (and no, it was not waiting the 2+ hours to see Santa) was going to Hu …

Makeover – French Green Bean Casserole (Paleo, Vegan Option)

I was inspired to make this because I wanted a side dish for Christmas that I knew could be served to Mr. Picky and C without any complaints. Actually, this is my goal for every recipe I make – and while I may not always hit the mark, this was a complete success – quickly …

Paleo Magic Bars (Egg Free)

Holidays are coming, and if you’re anything like me, you’re on the hunt for treats to share that aren’t incredibly time-consuming or labor intensive. Over the years, I’ve learned that if it isn’t easy or uncomplicated, then I’m probably not going to have a great time making desserts! Don’t get me wrong, there are times …
