GFAF Expo – San Francisco 2013

I can’t believe a few weeks have already gone by since my trip to the GFAF Expo in San Francisco!!  As you know, I was REALLY looking forward to getting out of town and into one of my favorite cities, San Francisco!!! And you know what?  It was better than I’d hoped!  For one, the weather was AMAZING! And […]

On the Road – To the GFAF Expo in San Francisco!!

I haven’t been sick – reeeeally sick – in a very long time.  As a matter of fact, I haven’t had the flu since I was about 10 yrs old.  Well, imagine my surprise (and annoyance) when I came down with the flu a couple of weeks ago!  Not only did it hit me, it […]

Paleo “Sugar” Cookies with Cinnamon Maple Frosting (plus options!)

  With Christmas fast approaching, I wanted to give my wonderful readers an early present…a sneak preview of not one, but TWO recipes from my latest book, Paleo Indulgences!!  That first Christmas after switching to a Paleo lifestyle, I was worried that I wouldn’t be able to make sugar cookies with my daughters, which had been […]

Cranberry Vinaigrette – (Cranberry Sauce – Take 2)

Apparently, it’s really difficult to make a small amount of cranberry sauce.  Have you ever noticed that?  Long after the leftover turkey, dressing and pumpkin pie have vanished, there’s still that bowl of cranberry sauce sitting in the fridge.  My family loves cranberry sauce, but no matter how much we use on the big T-Day, we […]

Spiced Maple Pecans

  It’s almost Thanksgiving, and I just realized I have NO munchies for guests before dinner!  Uh-oh.  Hungry guests are a no-no in my family, so I’m whipping up some Spiced Maple Pecans, from my first book, The Healthy Gluten Free Life, to keep everyone busy while dinner is cooking.  Along with a variety of olives, munchies […]

Surviving the Treats of Halloween

First and foremost, I must admit that I am not a Paleo Perfectionist by any means.  I do my best on a daily basis, but as you can tell from my current book, Paleo Indulgences, I like to bake, I like a sweet treat occasionally, and I don’t want my kids to ever feel left […]

Sweet N Sour Meatballs – Gluten Free, Grain Free, Dairy Free, Nut Free, Soy Free, Egg Free Option*

I originally created this recipe for the wonderful US Wellness Meats when they were nice enough to have me as their featured chef in September 2012.  This dish quickly became a family favorite, especially for my kids, which is a success all on it’s own.  These delectable little meatballs explode with sweet, tangy, gingery flavor […]

Well, I’m not sure what planets aligned this month but I was fortunate enough to be selected as the September Featured Chef for US Wellness Meats!!  If you’ve never heard of US Wellness Meats, well, let me tell you – you’re in for a treat! For many people across the country, local grass fed meat is […]

Last Night’s Dinner – Chili Dusted Cauliflower (GF, DF, EF, NF, SF, Paleo)

Sometimes getting the family (or yourself) to eat certain things means finding the right combo of flavors that make you appreciate what you’ve been avoiding.  For my kids and me, the same ‘ol salt and pepper cauliflower was getting boring and I found we weren’t making it very often anymore. To accompany a lovely, spiced pork […]
