In June, for Father’s Day, I posted a photo and some behind-the-scenes stories on my Instagram of a decadent chocolate cake that was under construction.  At Ryan’s request, I  was busy in the kitchen, excitedly creating a gluten-free German Chocolate Cake. So many of you immediately requested the recipe! I’m thrilled to finally share the… Read more »

If you have been following me on social media for some time, you may know my garden is a labor of love. I cherish my time tending to it, as well as watching my kids’ excitement of picking fresh fruits and veggies right off the vine. Last year, after moving, our garden nearly tripled in… Read more »

The classic ice-cream sandwich has a way of bringing me back to my favorite summer childhood memories. My siblings and I would play outside most days – running through sprinklers and enjoying endless games of roller hockey by day, and flashlight tag at night with our neighborhood friends. The highlight of the day would be… Read more »

If you can’t tell, I’ve been on a big tequila kick recently. It has to be a mixture of quarantine for the past 4 months and the warm summer air. While I do enjoy a glass of biodynamic wine, I also love putting my creativity to the test and mixing different fruits and fresh herbs… Read more »

It’s crazy to think that I have hundreds of recipes throughout the blog and 4 cookbooks and have never published my Honey Simple Syrup Recipe as a standalone recipe! It’s used throughout Celebrations in the paleo-friendly cocktails, and I use it all the time to make my kids a quick glass of lemonade when they… Read more »

You know I love a good tequila-based cocktail. Margaritas in any form will always be my drink of choice, and this Watermelon Margarita has quickly become a weekend favorite for Ryan and me. Tequila is a distilled beverage made from the blue agave plant, so it is naturally grain and gluten-free. I stay away from… Read more »

My time in New York inspired this Roasted Pineapple and Sweet Potatoes recipe. It’s a city that holds a special plate in my heart.  I have watched from afar through the COVID crisis as the city hurt. But I’ve also watched with admiration while they have so powerfully bonded together. My book publisher’s office is… Read more »

You’ve been waiting all quarantine for this gluten-free Crunchy Graham Crackers recipe, so I pushed it up in the list of other recipes I had in the queue to get it to you earlier. Hopefully you can make them with your family, and enjoy something that is comforting and familiar this weekend.  What a strange,… Read more »

In 2017, I released my beloved gluten-free and corn-free Marshmallow recipe from my Celebrations cookbook on the blog. I’ve used those marshmallows to create gluten-free and refined sugar-free Sprouted Brown Rice Crispy Treats over the years. However, I never published a recipe for them because the blog is all grain-free. Interestingly, I recently polled my audience on… Read more »

What’s more classic than a Chocolate Dipped Banana? You all know how much I love to recreate favorite recipes from childhood, and this dessert is absolutely one of those for me. I think I first had Chocolate Dipped Bananas at Disneyland as a child and introduced them to my own kids when we first took… Read more »

A few summers ago, Ryan and I were at the beach here in California when we stopped at a juice bar for a refreshing drink. We saw Acai Bowls advertised and couldn’t help but get one to share along with our juice. We fell in love with Acai Bowls during our brief move to Kona… Read more »

Caramel Corn always takes me straight to Halloween. Growing up it was one of those classics that we always made around the month of October and I continue the tradition with my children. They love making (and eating) this gluten-free caramel corn!  I decided to jazz up the standard caramel corn by adding in some… Read more »
