Plum Pickin’ Pineapple Jam

002

This time of the year our pantry and refrigerator is overloaded with all kinds of delicious produce. Most recently, with the help of Bountiful Baskets we have received an overabundance of fruits like cherries, peaches, nectarines, plums and pineapples. So much so that even my large family cannot keep up. What’s a girl to do?  […]

Fermented Spicy Garlic-Dill Cukes and Zukes

summer-fest-logo-92

Between the digestive issues my daughter has faced since she was a baby and my own celiac diagnosis, I have been somewhat obsessed with healing our guts for quite some time. For many years, I thought yogurt and liquid acidophilus were our only options.  It has not been until recently that I have learned the […]

Strawberry Coconut Butter

001

I first discovered coconut butter at my local health food store.  Purchased more out of curiosity than anything, one little bite and I was positively hooked! This Strawberry Coconut Butter came after experimenting with this brilliant Coconut Butter recipe from Lexi’s Kitchen.  Filled with nutrient dense coconut and coconut oil, coconut butter is one of […]

Unsweetened Vegan Coconut Milk Crockpot Yogurt

When my daughter was diagnosed with a milk allergy at just 17 months old, I could have never imagined where our food journey was about to take us.

Sometimes this is a good thing. Sometimes this is not. These no-bake, refined sugar-free vegan candy bar brownies are the result of […]

Grain-Free Irish Soda Bread, 2-ways

044

My red hair is generally a dead giveaway to one of the most distinct parts of my family ancestry. While I grew up proud of every part of my rich, mixed family history which includes: American Indian, English, Dutch and (as mentioned before) Irish, the two portions I studied most closely were definitely my American […]

no-bake cookies (allergy-free, refined sugar-free, grain-free, vegan)

004

About a week ago I pinned these beautiful, paleo-friendly no-bake cookies which were originally shared by Alison Lewis from ingredients, inc.
