Chili Roasted Pumpkin Seeds

Posted on October 19, 2011

Paleo pepitas will delight your little ghosts and goblins.

Looking for a delicious Halloween snack? Spicy pumpkin seeds tossed in chili powder, olive oil and a touch of salt are a healthy treat during this junk food filled time of year.

These heavily spiced seeds are also great for the change in seasons when everyone seems to be coming down with a cold or sore throat, as chili powder is full of both anti-inflammatory and anti-infectious agents, as well as antioxidants.

How to Make Applesauce

Posted on September 23, 2011

Easy homemade applesauce with apples picked from the tree in our backyard.

This is my favorite applesauce recipe, I give it out whenever people ask me how to make homemade applesauce. It’s a simple recipe, easy, delicious and healthy too. On top of that? Kids love it –at least mine (and their friends) gobble it down every time we make it.

Another benefit of making applesauce from scratch? It’s an easy and nourishing recipe for children. Mine really get involved in peeling ... read more →

Deviled Eggs

Posted on April 7, 2011

I’m kinda obsessed with these deviled eggs, and given that Easter is near, what could be more appropriate? They’re easy to make, full of protein and naturally gluten free to boot. My boys love to chow down on them after school and I like to snack on them all day long. Deviled Eggs are perfectly simple and elegant for a party, and make a great casual everyday type gluten free snack as well.

When I make these, I like to double the recipe below, ... read more →

Homemade Goat Cheese

Posted on June 16, 2010

I made my own raw goat cheese from scratch!  The amazing Patrick brought over some raw goat’s milk from one of his farm friends and that’s where it all began…

And now I can say I’m totally digging this homemade goat cheese, it’s deliciously addicting –at least for me.  We’re back from California, hence the previous sentence using words such as “totally digging.”

I had a wonderful time in Los Angeles working with The Almond Board to promote healthy eating.  I also ... read more →

Raw Apple Sauce

Posted on July 29, 2008

I love apple sauce in any weather. The thought of turning on the oven to make some right now? Or lighting up the stove? In this heat? Not a good one. What to do? Make raw apple sauce. It’s tart, tangy, refreshing and delicious. On top of that, “uncooking” cuts back on energy consumption. It also keeps the house nice and cool –as cool as it can be on these 90 ... read more →

Homemade Applesauce

Posted on December 2, 2007

I love the season of late fall, just before the winter solstice. The days get super short –well, I don’t love that. Nevertheless, I enjoy the chill in the air and seeing the mountains covered in snow.

For me, cold weather is merely a great excuse to stay home and bake, and this time of year, I especially like to serve warm homemade applesauce. I peel apples and bake them in the oven. The house smells amazing and when it’s Hanukkah, ... read more →

How to Slice a Mango

Posted on May 1, 2007

Here’s how to tango with a mango

Mango, a wonderfully rich, sweet treat, full of nutritious prebiotic dietary fiber and antioxidants, is the perfect Paleo dessert.

Here’s how to cut a mango, because as the weather warms, I follow suit and warm weather fruits make their way into my shopping cart. Today I found gorgeous yellow mangos. I bought one and when I arrived home did the mango tango –a dance of slicing this slippery fruit.

Easy Veggie Snack

Posted on February 1, 2007

Liberté, Egalité, Crudité

This kid friendly snack is as healthy as it gets. Just don’t tell your children it’s also Paleo/primal fare.

It’s a vegetable revolution! They’re back. Vegetables, that is. They never really left, actually. Sometimes we just forget about them. This quick and easy veggie snack recipe takes about 10 minutes to make. The boys will eat them the moment they walk in the door from school. That bowl is usually empty by dinner.
