Coconut Cream Roulade


Years ago I saw a roulade in a Scandinavian holiday cookbook and I thought it was so pretty. I couldn’t wait to make it with my ingredients. But after a few tries I was no where near close to something that could be rolled. The cake broke into pieces. Fast forward to a few months…

Persimmon Gluten Free Scones


It’s that time of year again—persimmon time. Last year at this time I ate my very first persimmon. I thought it was the most delicious thing I had ever tasted. Right up there with fresh steamed artichokes. Bliss. And now they’re hear again, my lovely persimmons. Of course I love to eat persimmons raw, so…

Chocolate Hazelnut Fudge

Dairy-free Hazelnut Fudge

We have been crazy about this recipe around my house. It all began when I made these Vanilla & Toasted Coconut bars. Next I did this Sour Cherry Acai & Chocolate Chip variation. (They are my husband’s favorite yet) But I couldn’t stop there. While my husband, Ashley, and I were licking our fingers clean,…

Sour Cherry Homemade Lara Bars


Last week I posted my Vanilla & Toasted Coconut Bars (with a mock-peanut and chocolate chip variation), which are my variation of a Lara Bar.

Chia Pudding with Acai or Raw Cacao


I have been craving chia lately. And fish. And I never crave fish. This is my body’s way of telling me I need more essential fatty acid. I’m sure I’m giving most of it away to Ginger in my milk. So I’ve upped my intake of fish oil supplements, and I’ve been eating chia non-stop. Last…

Coconut Cream Whoopie Pies

If you prefer, I think palm shortening could work, but you might have to play around with the recipe proportions if you try a substitution. (Paleo Parents has a whoopie pie recipe…

Mock Peanut Butter Cups


Even if my kids didn’t have allergies, and I weren’t celiac, I would still prefer homemade Easter candy. Do you know what drives me crazy about store-bought candy? The refined sugar, the dairy, the gluten, and the peanuts. Try finding candy without those four ingredients. It’s nearly impossible. I know there are a couple out…
