How to Make Pumpkin Pie Spice Mix

We’re having a heatwave here in southern California right now. It’s been over 100 degrees this week. It wasn’t this hot **all summer**, but now in the middle of September – BOOM! My body knows it’s not even close to fall (or is it? who knows), but my mind says it’s time for fall things…

Cinnamon Gluten Free Donuts

Last week or so Andy was missing cider doughnuts. I never had them, but he did. When I ask him where he had them he says, “the northeast.” This frustrates me because I think of myself as being from the northeast, even though technically I’m not. I’m from Maryland, which is just south of Mason-Dixon…

Gluten, constipation, and autism. It’s all connected! And a “Coffee Milkshake” that has changed Ashley’s life :-)

Hey everybody! This is a video where I talk about how gelatin has made Ashley regular after a YEAR of struggling with constipation and trying EVERYTHING under the sun. It’s been a month of almost daily poops (Sorry I said poop on a food blog. Had to be done.). It’s definitely a record, and lets…

Paleo Double Chocolate No-Bake Cookies

These paleo chocolate cookies have raw cacao powder inside and raw cacao butter outside. You could also add chopped dark chocolate to the cookies for an even more chocolatey experience I made them with SunButter so they have a bit of “peanut” flavor, but I think they would be even better with raw almond butter….

Our Thanksgiving Menu

Thanksgiving is right around the corner, and I’m already planning my menu. I’ll be making some of these recipes for my family, many of which are already traditions. For super easy side dishes we love these Cauliflower (mock) Mashed Potatoes. They are so creamy and good, without any dairy or white potato. This Butternut Squash with…

Lemon Cream Danish

I’m calling this Lemon Cream Danish. It’s similar to the Danish Cake in Paleo Chocolate Lovers (which, by the way is my favorite recipe in the book, although I wouldn’t refuse any of them), but I added coconut flour to the crust and I used coconut cream in the “cream cheese.” It came out so…

Pumpkin Paleo Chili

While we were on our book tour / road trip for nearly a month I daydreamed about what we would do when we got home. I imagined how I could simplify our life and make more time for the kids. One of my thoughts was to do more menu planning. It’s so nice knowing what…

The Road Trip Book Tour: Heading Home

After 2,600+ miles of driving we are finally home again. We had an absolute blast seeing all of the West Coast, spending time with old friends, and making new ones. People keep asking how the kids did on the road, especially the 2-yr-old. The girls all did great! Ginger got right on board, and Zoe…

The Road Trip Book Tour: Portland to Seattle and back!

The last stop of our road trip was on Saturday, and we’re now making our way back south. I still have two bookstore events lined up for the San Diego area in November. Until then, here’s the story of our trip to Washington: Ginger was into all the samurai shoes at the Portland Art Museum….

The Road Trip Book Tour: Oregon!

It’s been a week since our last road trip blog post. We’ve just been too busy and too tired to keep up with it! We finished my Seattle cooking demo yesterday, and we’ve been driving back south again. We’re in an Oregon hotel for the night, so I finally have some time to tell you…
