Salted Caramel Protein Shakes

I have a thing for small spaces. Now, I know what you’re thinking: sour grapes. But that’s not it. Honestly. In fact, I had a really big house once, and it wasn’t for me. I have a thing for small spaces. Cottages, ranches, historic houses (the small ones). And then there’s the on-going debate over…

Maple Syrup of the Native Americans

A Native American maple sugar camp, 1853. Image courtesy of the Library of Congress.  Hi everyone, Andrew here with another food history post. I’m originally from Upstate New York, where maple syrup is kind of a big deal. My family has always had a special fondness for the stuff. The “pancake syrup” made of corn syrup was…

Dairy-Free Coffee Creamer

DAIRY-FREE coffee creamer. Oh heck yes. When I have iced coffee I always use fair trade decaf coffee, with some almond milk in it, but then this recipe happened by accident, and I’m madly in love with it. I mean, seriously. It even looks like dairy creamer when you pour it in. All marble-like. Then you stick…

Swiss Almond Dairy Free Ice Cream

After a 10-year struggle with endometriosis, I finally gave up eating dairy in 2005. My naturopathic doctor explained to me that even organic dairy (without added hormones) came from the milk of an animal, and the natural hormones in the milk were encouraging my misplaced endometrial cells. I had already been diagnosed with celiac disease, and I…

Gluten Free Cinnamon Rolls

There’s been lots of excitement around here lately! We had Andy’s lovely sister, Marcie come to visit from Philadelphia, we decided to stay another year in SoCal, and found a cute little house to rent! It’s been so fun, but I’m also really looking forward to slowing down again. Having things to do is great, but being “busy”…

Turkey Hash

Ever since going to Austin, and getting THIS, I’ve been obsessed with hash. I’ve made hash with a few kinds of meat now, and I’ve decided this turkey hash is my fave. Tonight we had it outside for dinner. The truth is, we haven’t had it for breakfast once. Always for lunch or dinner. And…

Paleo fx 2014

Remember last year when I was so wrapped up in my chocolate book-making bubble that I didn’t even know about Paleo fx, and jumped on a plane with Ginger 10 hours after finding out? That was so funny. Ginger and I had a blast. This year I was ready, but sadly Ginger, who is going…

Hazelnut Gluten-Free Biscotti

Lets have some coffee, biscotti, and chit-chat. I’ll go first: So we had an earthquake here last week. In Murrieta (where we are) it was really little, but in LA it was scary. Things falling down and breaking, houses trembling, scary. Andy and I stayed up late the following night talking about it. Should we…
