Cranberry Cherry Relish

Posted on November 15, 2012

Fresh cranberry sauce made with only 4 ingredients, no sugar.

I’ve had cranberry sauce on my mind. So I researched cranberry sauce recipes, and found that most have anywhere from ¼ to 1 ¾ cups of sugar. I like a tart cranberry sauce, one that almost makes my mouth pucker, so I developed this stevia and fruit-sweetened cranberry sauce. While it’s nicely tart, the cherries and orange juice make it quite sweet too.

This is a naturally sweetened lower-glycemic cranberry relish recipe, ... read more →

Chocolate Cranberry Power Bars

Posted on March 29, 2011

This recipe was adapted from one by Pam Vagnieres‘ in an article called Make Your Own Protein Bars that ran last year in my local newspaper The Daily Camera.  These high protein, gluten free power bars are easy to make and remind me of a Lärabar, though these are super fresh since they’re homemade, and they’re also not quite as sweet.

My boys and their friends loved these bars and gobbled them up during spring break, when our house was boys ... read more →

Cranberry Orange Scones

Posted on February 7, 2011

Once again, it’s all Joy the Baker’s fault.  This scone obsession of mine.  When I saw those cute little hand cut squares of Orange Chocolate Buttermilk Scones on her blog, joythebaker.com, I knew I had to make them mine.  And I did.  And then some.

So, here’s the latest in my scone series, gluten free Cranberry Orange Scones.  As you can see, there is a strange “orangeness” on the top of my scones.  That’s because I had a little extra zest ... read more →

Christmas Chocolate Bark

Posted on December 10, 2010

I am digging this yummy Christmas Chocolate Bark.  Studded with rich pistachios, tart dried cranberries, and speckled with coarse chunks of salt, it’s a winner.

I believe the ideas for this flavor combo came from the fabulous Alison.  I think this bark would make a wonderful gift for the holidays.  Just don’t eat too much of it, as it’s very addictive.

Cranberry Apple Stuffing

Posted on November 19, 2010

Stuffing. Gluten free stuffing, no less.  While I generally find stuffing to be a time consuming and complex dish to make, I have chosen one that is on the easier side; though be forewarned, I would hardly call this dish easy.

This gluten free stuffing recipe is based on one I found by Sara Foster at Bon Appétit.  It has all the components of a good stuffing recipe: bread (gluten free of course in this case), onions, celery, chicken broth, and ... read more →

Creamy Cranberry Dressing

Posted on November 3, 2010

This super tart cranberry dressing is the perfect gluten free addition to any fall meal, and is ideal for Thanksgiving.  Cranberries are a superfood, rich in antioxidants.  I like to sprinkle fresh cranberries on my salad when I use this dressing.  Because they are so mouth-puckering and tangy, I spare my husband and children, by using fruit sweetened, dried cranberries as a garnish on their salads, rather than the fresh ones.

I found this recipe in an old Sunset magazine ... read more →

I am thrilled to let you all know that I am working with the Almond Board of California to promote healthy and delicious eating.

Why am I doing this?  As you can imagine, I love almonds.  They are a superfood and of course one of my favorite things to nibble on.  I like almonds so much that I wrote an entire book about them.  The Gluten-Free Almond Flour Cookbook uses almonds in all of ... read more →

Cranberry Bars

Posted on October 28, 2009

These tart and tangy Cranberry Bars are one of my favorite treats.  I’ve been craving cranberries lately and this gluten free dessert more than hits the spot when it comes to mouth puckering goodness.

I first made these Cranberry Bars as a tart.  That was before Robyn and her children came over to have an afternoon of baking with us last week; she suggested making this as a bar, so it would more readily make an on-the-go type snack.  Robyn is ... read more →

Cranberry Walnut Chocolate Chip Cookies

Posted on October 7, 2009

This scrumptious fall twist on the classic chocolate chip cookie is a big hit in my household.  The tart dried cranberries and nutty, roasted goodness of walnuts, along with nutrient dense almond flour turn a plain old chocolate chip cookie into an antioxidant rich, nutritious treat.

Cranberry Orange Biscotti

Posted on May 28, 2009

These vegan, gluten free Cranberry Orange Biscotti are delicious with a cup of tea or after dinner as a light (or lite) treat.

My younger son thinks these are delicious and packed some in his lunch last night for today…the last day of school.  Summer.  Hooray!  The boys are very happy to be free.  And play lots of baseball this summer.  I’m looking forward to taking them to the pool and splashing around with them and their friends.

This sweet yet tart raw cranberry sauce is one of my favorite Thanksgiving dishes, in fact, it’s one of my favorite naturally gluten free dishes of all time!

Tart, tangy and full of healing properties, just last week I ate an entire test batch.  I adore cranberries and stock up during this ... read more →

Acorn Squash with Cranberry Apple Stuffing

Posted on October 10, 2008

Some days I need a little inspiration. I knew that I would be baking squash for our Shabbat dinner tonight. And I knew it would have some delicious dried cranberries in it. I just wasn’t entirely sure what form it would all take.

I looked around on the internet for a bit and saw this scrumptious looking recipe for a Southern style baked acorn squash and was on my way!

Trail Mix

Posted on March 31, 2008

Dark chocolate, dried cranberries and macadamia nut are a good source of clean energy

Coaching my son’s little league team is a hoot. Technically, I am assistant coach. Make that “more than” technically; I am definitely assistant coach. Pete (my friend Blair’s husband) is head coach and he is fantastic. All fun, yet full of discipline and focus. It is so great to see how he hustles twelve little 9 year olds around the field, keeping them ... read more →

Cranberry Lemon Muffins

Posted on February 5, 2008

My favorite taste tester is going on a diet. This is not good news.

This diet deal will require some serious re-inventing of the wheel over here. New standards will need to be implemented. No more –he ate two whole trays of that so it must be good– type ratings.

My favorite taste tester is also my best friend and has been for 16 years. He does not like it when I call him my “partner,” says it makes us sound like ... read more →

Scrumptious homemade truffles using only four ingredients!

This recipe for handmade, gluten free and raw Cranberry Apricot Truffles is packed with nutrients, easy to make and aesthetically pleasing to boot.

After taking a brief hiatus from sweets, I am back on the dessert bandwagon! With Valentine’s Day rapidly approaching, I have been thinking of fun treats to give out to friends and family for the holiday.

Pumpkin Cranberry Upside-Down Cake

Posted on November 12, 2007

My son’s viola teacher, Sandra, asked for advice regarding traditional Thanksgiving family fare. The next thing I knew, she had given me a copy of a recipe for Pumpkin Cranberry Upside-Down Cake featured in Sunset Magazine’s November 2007 issue. I made several changes to it, most notably removing the sugar, dairy and gluten and was pleased with the results.

This dessert is a rich, moist cross between a pumpkin cake and a pumpkin pie. Perfect for that post-Halloween, pre-Thanksgiving time ... read more →

Kale with Cranberries

Posted on February 22, 2007

More kale mom!

Say hello to Kale with Cranberries! This salad recipe contains: kale, a cancer fighting superfood packed with flavonoids; cranberries, high in vitamin C; and pine nuts, the edible seed of the pine tree, and higher in protein than any other seed.

My boys fight over this one. The four of us can finish off the 2 bunches of kale that the recipe calls for in one sitting. Even when their dad is not home for dinner, the three of ... read more →
