Thanksgiving Round-up

  I frequently get requests for my holiday recipes, and while just about all of them are in my cookbooks: The Healthy Gluten Free Life, Paleo Indulgences & Make Ahead Paleo, I thought having my go-to recipes all in one place would be handy for my readers. So here you go!  When it comes to […]

Toasted Spiced Pumpkin Seeds – Paleo/GF/DF/EF/SF/NF

  This simple snack and garnish appeared in my very first cookbook, The Healthy Gluten Free Life. But I share it with you today so you can go forth and make seeds! Great by themselves, sprinkled on salads or tossed on Butternut Squash Soup, these spiced pumpkin seeds deliver great taste and nutrition.  Pumpkin seeds possess anti-inflammatory […]

Creamy Beef & Green Bean Casserole with Pearl Onions & Crispy Shallots – Paleo/GF/DF/EF/SF/NF

  This recipe is from my latest book, Make Ahead Paleo, but I’m giving you a sneak peek, just in time for the Holidays!!  While I normally make this as a main-dish, for Thanksgiving we are making it without the beef as a simple side to the star of the meal – the turkey! Here’s the original recipe […]

Cranberry Sauce – Paleo/GF/DF/EF/SF/NF

Sausage Veggie Stuffing – Paleo/GF/DF/EF*

  This was a reader favorite recipe from my first book, The Healthy Gluten Free Life, so I wanted to share it with everyone for the upcoming Thanksgiving holiday.

Pumpkin Martinis

  I had to share yet another fantastic holiday recipe from my first book, The Healthy Gluten Free Life! The first time we made these surprisingly delicious drinks at Thanksgiving everyone responded the same way, “Pumpkin, in a martini?”  It didn’t sound great but we gave it a go anyway, and we are so glad […]
