Orange Cake

Last year we drove through an orange orchard in bloom for the first time. The trees stood along the road for miles. We rolled down the windows, and the smell was aammmaaaazing! A couple weeks ago I was at Costco when I experienced that orange blossom smell. They were selling dwarf orange trees. I had to get one. Ashley…

Italain ALmond COokies

Italian Almond Cookies from My Paleo Patisserie

A friend got me into Jenni’s blog several years ago. I fell in love with her style and personality right away. Many of you may not know this, but I used to have a podcast. The last episode I recorded was with Jenni and her husband, Ben. Jenni’s health story blew my mind. So when…

Lemon Breakfast Cake

I’m always looking for more ways to add gelatin to our diet. You’ve probably heard that it’s great for your hair and nails, but it’s also a good source of protein, it supports joint health, and it’s very healing for the gut (especially helpful for Ashley). In March I attended Natural Products Expo West, and…

For my fellow Americans: this tastes just like an E. L. Fudge Cookie. Well, a WAY…

Spunky Coconut Shamrock Shake

Did you know that the Shamrock Shake has 54 ingredients?! Gross. And those dozens of ingredients aren’t too healthy (not that I have to tell you. I’m sure I’m preaching to the choir). When I was a kid I used to get one of those shakes every year, but my daughters have never eaten anything at McDonald’s….

My Trip to Natural Products Expo West

This past weekend was Natural Products Expo West, a huge conference featuring natural products and foods (and some products and foods I wouldn’t touch with a ten-foot pole). I went on Friday. The expo was held in Anaheim, California, not too far from where I live. My friend Leanne Vogel of Healthful Pursuit flew in…
