Elk Stew from Eating Appalachia

Chianti-Braised Elk Stew from Eating Appalachia

Hi! It’s me, Andrew (Kelly’s husband). I’ve been waiting for Eating Appalachia to be published since last fall when I designed the book’s cover. Kelly may have mentioned that I design book covers (and their insides) for a living. Usually the publisher sends me a short description of the book to get a sense of how…

Savory Caprese Dairy-Free Cheesecake

This savory caprese cheesecake is like eating summer on a fork. It’s easy to make (I promise!) with cashew cheese and a walnut crust–no baking required. Basil, heirloom and grape tomatoes, and balsamic will have your taste buds singing while your friends never even suspect that it’s dairy-free. The trick to this recipe is planning…

Gluten-Free in Disneyland

Plan your trip around the less crowded times of the week, if possible. We use this Crowd Calendar. Plan your day at the park by using an app. We just started using the official Disneyland Mobile App. It shows where you are in the park on an illustrated map (like a cute Google Maps), tells you wait times…

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…

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….

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…

Sweet Potato Meringue Pie

As I’ve mentioned on Instagram, I haven’t been able to keep up with my friends’ work nearly as much as I want to lately. The other day my dear friend Josh of Slim Palate and I were texting, so I jumped over to his blog to see what was new. OMGoooodness. I’ve always been a…
