Vanilla Toasted Coconut Bars

Dude… it’s been rough times at my house. While Andy and Zoe were in Colorado for a few days I got glutened and I’m still dealing with it. Then after we picked them up at the airport yesterday Ashley got the stomach flu, poor baby. Ginger is either feeling under the weather now, or just…

Chocolate slice with arrowroot biscuits

My Aussie and Kiwi friends! I am so excited to finally have made one of the recipes you asked for, Spunky Coconut style (Technically, I had already made another one, but that recipe will be in my new book, coming out this fall!) 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….

Pho: Vietnamese Bone Broth

Kelly: My husband gets an idea to make a recipe… like twice a year (I’m laughing now ). Last time it was a Thai dish, this time it’s Vietnamese. He wanted to make pho, a super rich bone broth (which is soooo good for you), slow cooked with lots of fragrant spices. Getting the spices was…

Gluten-Free Restaurants in Boulder County

We called Boulder County, Colorado home for six years. When we first arrived we were immediately amazed at how much of a gluten-free haven Boulder is. There are gluten-free Boulder restaurant recommendations scattered on this blog, but we thought it would be good to gather them all into one up-to-date post. If you’re in Boulder you can…
