Grain Free Some-More-Ahh’s – Paleo/GF/DF*/SF

  My second favorite Girl Scout Cookie, next to Thin Mints, are the Samoas. Something about that gooey caramel, slightly crunchy cookie and toasted coconut, with the chocolate coated bottom for good measure – that would always make me eat a box (Hey, the boxes aren’t that big!) before I knew what hit me. Now-a-days I could probably […]

Sugar Free Coconut Macaroons – With and Without Eggs

Most of my life I hated coconut.  It was stringy and had a funny texture that I just couldn’t get through.  Then,  years ago, I started eating and baking with Unsweetened Dehydrated Organic Coconut.  Wow what a difference!  I realized that I didn’t hate coconut at all…what I hated was the over-processed, over-sugared, stringy “candy” […]
