Vanilla Almond Butter

Posted on January 22, 2010

The creation of this delicious, homemade vanilla almond butter is hardly my own.  One of my favorite readers, Courtney, over at benefityourlife.com, gave me several amazing presents during the holidays and one was a bottle of super tasty vanilla almond butter from the lovely Katie Kearney over at naturallynutty.com. Yum!

This is a great product, and when I finished Courtney’s gift and was too impatient to wait for my own order to arrive, I came up with the little treat below.  ... read more →

That troubling question, “what’s for dinner?” troubles no more! Of late I’m feeling quite confident about answering this question, having built up a decent repertoire of main dishes for the family.

Pancakes

Posted on April 6, 2007

My children love these pancakes. High in protein, we eat them for breakfast, lunch and every now and then, dinner.

Here’s an easy recipe for gluten free pancakes. These pancakes are so simple that my younger son makes them from scratch. The high protein ingredients alone in this recipe beat any pancake mix.

My husband and I were talking about pancake mixes last month when we had dinner at one of our favorite restaurants with friends Gary and Nancy. Gary mentioned ... read more →

Chicken Parmesan

Posted on March 21, 2007

Each year my husband requests a special dish for his birthday. Last year it was chicken parmigiano.

Classic chicken parmesan goes gluten free when chicken breasts are coated in almond flour. This chicken recipe can be a staple in every gluten free chefs repertoire.

Even though we are on different diets, in my home we partake in one family meal. This way, we come together energetically – we share the same space, breathe the same air and eat the same food.

Chocolate Chip Cookies

Posted on March 20, 2007

Gluten free, naturally sweetened. Go ahead, try one.

This is one of the first chocolate chip cookie recipes that I created. Two subsequent recipes for gluten free chocolate chip cookies that I now prefer to this one include the vegan chocolate chip cookies on this website, and my all time favorite gluten free, dairy free chocolate chip cookie in The Gluten-Free Almond Flour Cookbook.

For those of you that were wondering, I use this website as a journal for the recipes ... read more →

Butter Cookies

Posted on February 27, 2007

A simple butter cookie recipe made with heart healthy almond flour.

I love baking cookies. This easy gluten free cookie recipe is one that my friend Mary and I like to bake when we are together. She likes it because it’s full of high protein, healthy ingredients that are Paleo/primal friendly.

I met my friend Mary on the very first day of college. She is one of the smartest, funniest people I know. A savvy foodie, she and I spent some ... read more →

My kids were hankering for something sweet the other day. So, I made this delicious sweet apricot butter recipe. It’s not a jam – it’s real butter with dried fruit pureed into it.

Great on warm toast. It is one of my younger son’s favorite gluten free snacks.
