When chilly weather arrives the boys ask for Paleo Apple Tart with Pecan Crust on a nightly basis.
Cold weather means apple pie (or some version thereof) in my house. Our favorite is this cinnamon-spiked apple tart encased in a pecan crust. Since my boys go gaga for anything involving baked apples, this gluten free apple tart with a high protein, grain free crust doesn’t last long around here.

These peanut butter cookies are gluten free, grain free and vegan to boot. I based them on Heidi’s Peanut Butter Cookie recipe over at 101 Cookbooks, one of my favorite websites. Though I did cut the amount of sweetener in half and make a couple of other changes.
I have been on a bit of a peanut butter kick lately. I didn’t eat peanut butter for a long time. I just didn’t feel great when I ate it, however, I’m feeling ... read more →

Summer is definitely here and our house is the place to be. The neighborhood boys congregate on our trampoline –with the sprinklers aimed at it for a good cool down and a great deal of healthy fun.
With all of this activity I keep the food flowing morning, noon and night. From the time they arrive until dinner (sometimes a bunch of them stay for the evening meal too) I am setting out munchies –snacks, lunch, etc. They really are a ... read more →

These super duper healthy, yet easy to make Fudge Babies have recently been the source of much contention. You see, it all started when I did the giveaway for a Cuisinart Food Processor a couple of weeks ago. In that post, I asked readers to let me know of their favorite recipes using a Cuisinart. There were 2,204 comments on that post. Guess what? I read each and every one of them. No joke.
The comments were fascinating. First, I love ... read more →

This scrumptious, dairy free, gluten free, vegan, super transportable snack is a power bar in the form of balls. What I love most about it though is the flavor –they taste like raw cookie dough!
This recipe came from a comment on my Cuisinart Giveaway post, left by Karen; it is also similar to another recipe that many people mentioned on that post as their fave recipe, called Fudge Babies. Since these have just a tad sweeter than Fudge ... read more →
