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 »

Mexico is one of our favorite destinations for a family vacation. Home to margaritas, chips, and guacamole (two of those being my most favorite things in the world to consume in vats). Mexico is also close to California and relatively inexpensive to travel to from here. A few years ago we rented a house and… Read more »

There are few things that I enjoy more than curling up on the couch after a long day to watch a show with Ryan while enjoying a bowl of ice cream. Chocolate ice cream. Maybe double chocolate. Actually, imagine throwing in some thin mints in there for good measure. That’s right – a Double Chocolate… Read more »

I love Nashville and all of my precious friends that live there. While I am so proud to be a Californian, Nashville holds a very special place in my heart. I especially love when I get an extended time to stay with my friend Hillary and her family. I know a few things will always… Read more »

When I took it upon myself to make paleo and gluten-free homemade versions of the ever popular Thin Mint & Tagalong cookies, I knew I also had to include a Gluten-Free Samoas Cookie for my coconut lovers out there! Although I use coconut products in my recipes often, I’m actually not the biggest coconut fan…. Read more »

The period of time after New Years and before Easter can only mean one thing…Girl Scout cookie season! When I was a kid, this made the holidays coming to an end just a little bit sweeter. I never was a Girl Scout myself, but I always enjoyed supporting them by eating sleeves of cookies at… Read more »

Last month, Ryan and I went to Napa for an overnight trip to reconnect after spending the last few months battling my illness and the craziness of the holidays. We love how we can drive up there in 40 minutes and feel like we’re a world away. I’ll be honest, as wonderful as everything that… Read more »

The looming fear and uncertainty in the world right now is resulting in lots of time at home and tons of family baking and cooking. If you’re on Instagram, then you’re watching those baking sessions happen in our kitchen weekdays at 11am PT, chaos and all! I know it’s not great to eat your feelings,… Read more »

Whenever I have a freshly baked batch of gluten free brownies, I make sure to set aside an edge for myself. They are my favorite piece of the batch because of the slight crunch and gooey melted chocolatey goodness in the center. I especially love it warmed and served under a heaping scoop of ice… Read more »

I was standing in my kitchen a few weeks back sipping on a decaf coffee with a splash of my Vanilla Cashew Creamer. Besides morning cuddles with my kids, that one cup of coffee is the highlight of my morning. I sip on it as slow as I can to ensure that every taste is… Read more »
