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…

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…

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.
