Amaretto Cranberry Chocolate Chunk Cupcakes

Nov 16, 2012 by

Last week, I received my new device in the mail from Verizon as I am one of the Verizon Savvy Gourmet bloggers – an LG Intuition. I’ve been playing with it and haven’t really come to any great conclusions about it yet. It’s bigger than my Samsung Galaxy S3 but light as well, not overly clunky. The screen is great quality...

The Best Paleo Maple Bacon Chocolate Chip Cookie ...

Sep 27, 2012 by

I have this recipe for The Best Grain-Free Gluten-Free Paleo Bread (In the history of man) that I posted almost two years ago that has almost 200 comments, of which almost all are people testifying that the bread was awesome  and they loved it and it changed their wee grain-free lives. So I don’t take it lightly when I call these the Best...

Paleo Dark Chocolate Cherry Chunk Espresso Brownie...

Jun 10, 2012 by

I’m kind of torturing myself right now on a multitude of levels. One, I’ve made the decision to take a couple weeks off from CrossFit which also means I’ll be missing running the Warrior Dash with my husband and friends next weekend. Two, I am on Day 1 of another 21-day sugar detox and posting this damn recipe is some form of...

Paleo Almond Clusters

May 8, 2012 by

During my brief interim between going off sugar, I made these little treats hoping to recreate something crunchy – close to a cookie but without flours or too much sugar. I was kind of aiming for a nut cluster but as I added the ingredients together, it came out tasting like granola bar meets oatmeal raisin cookie (without the oatmeal or ...

Paleo Bananacado Fudge Cupcakes

Feb 3, 2012 by

You know how when most normal people are falling asleep, they think of what they did that day, what they need to do, things that make them happy, things that stress them out? I think of avocados. Well, rather I did this week. They had a sale at Sam’s club for the large bag of 6. And sure, I could make guacamole but Charlotte and I are the...

Flourless Paleo Coconut Lime Muffins

Dec 31, 2011 by

I broke down yesterday after two weeks of being sick and went to the doctor. If you know me, you  know this is something unprecedented. I don’t do doctors. I figure I’m gonna pick up something worse in the office than what I already have which is likely a virus that will run its course without any intervention. I especially...

Grain-Free Cranberry Almond Cookies

Nov 15, 2011 by

I hadn’t baked in a while and I won’t be really doing much baking in the next few weeks (we’re doing a 60-day challenge which I’ll tell you more about tomorrow and ask you to join me! and win prizes! and! more! fun! things!), so I decided to use up the coconut flour I had. I totally winged (Is that the past tense of...

Grain-Free Paleo Blueberry Crumb Muffins

Sep 30, 2011 by

I had made this recipe a while back and sacked it away in my imaginary cookbook secret stash, but after making them for a few friends it’s been deemed they need to go live. Or there were some threats against life and limb. And pets. It was originally posted over at The Spunky Coconut as a guest post while she was having her baby. If you need...

Grain-Free Sunbutter and Jelly Squares

Jun 12, 2011 by

Ok, so I know I’ve been doing a lot of “baked” goods lately but it’s only because I’ve been trying new recipes to get my kids to still be able to have their “treats” but make them in a way that is not only gluten-free but actually HEALTHY. I used Sunbutter in this recipe because I had an extra jar but any...

Flourless Grain-Free Fig Newton Mini Cakes

May 18, 2011 by

Oh geez, you guys. I had NO idea what to name these. They’re not cookies – they’re bigger and…well, cakier. But it’s not cake and they’re not traditional fig newtons because I couldn’t find my 8X8 square pan ANYWHERE and wanted them to be fluffier. They’re like figgy purses of goodness, but I...

Grain-Free Easter Egg Cake Pops

Apr 13, 2011 by

I can take no credit for this recipe other than deciding to make the cake pops into an egg shape. The Bakerella of course is the original Cake Pop Queen but it was Elana’s recipe that convinced me I could make a healthier, gluten-free, grain-free version and not give up any of the original taste. I made them once for Charlotte’s...

Irish Cream Gluten-Free Pear Crisp For Two

Dec 10, 2010 by

I like booze. I like fruit. Why should they not marry more often? A friend on Twitter asked me the other day if I knew of any grain/gluten-free crisp recipes off-hand. I referred her to Elana’s Pantry who has an amazing pear crisp recipe in The Gluten-Free Almond Flour Cookbook. I also told her if she gave me a week, I’d give her a...

Goat Cheese Pumpkin Cheesecake With a Pecan Hazeln...

Nov 20, 2010 by

I normally don’t post too much on the weekends but I want to get this up for those of you who may want to make this for Thanksgiving. This is not your momma’s cheesecake. Unless of course, you have MY momma. She gets all the credit for this and she gave me permission to recreate and post it here. It’s not a typical cheesecake,...

Primal Grain/Gluten-Free Ginger Cookies

Sep 15, 2010 by

My kids are sick. AGAIN. I don’t know what the hell is in this air out here in Iowa or if their poor little systems are just readjusting to new germs in a new area, but they’ve been sick a lot since we moved here. This is the second stomach virus to spread through our house and last time, I was knocked down with it, too. I remember the...

Grain-Free Mini Apple Pie Bake

Jul 5, 2010 by

This is another recipe courtesy of my husband who was apparently going to die in a fiery dramatic way if he didn’t satiate his apple puff pastry craving. I picked up a bag of organic granny smiths and told him to “figure something out.” And that he did.     Print This!     Grain-Free...
