Lemon Curd + Dark Chocolate Cake (Paleo, Gluten Free, Low Glycemic Treat)

I am so thrilled to be partnering with Bob’s Red Mill  this Spring!  It’s a wonderful time of the year for delicious, airy confections. Not to mention my dear boy turns four. When the folks at Bob’s said they were sending me THREE of their great baking flours I was over the moon!  They sent Unbleached White All Purpose Flour, 1 to 1 Gluten Free Baking Flour and the Paleo Baking Flour. I have used the 1 to 1 Gluten Free Blend before and I will tell you the results I…

Low Carb Single Serving Bread (Paleo, Gluten Free, Grain Free, Keto)

Almond Meal Bread A few weeks ago I was emailed by a paleo bread company, they wanted to send me some samples. Usually this makes me really happy… but as I inspected the ingredients I noticed all of their products contain potato starch. Alas, no paleo bread for me. Every. Single. One of the breads I have looked at has SOMETHING I can’t have. Granted… I know that’s a long list… but I was hopeful. Anywho… Almond meal and I have become besties. I got a 5lb, super fine, blanched…

Chewy Chocolate Chip Cookies: Real Salt & Almond (Keto, Paleo, Sugar-free)

Always Striving For The Perfect Cookie I’m going to confess something to you all, I didn’t always know how to bake. My cooking and restaurant experience always led me to the savory side of the kitchen. I learned… well taught myself to bake when my son was about to turn one. Yup. Smash cakes were my baking in. A lot of Jack’s little friends had food intolerance’s and mostly still nourished off the boob… so store bought, gluten-full, sugary cake was a no go. Anyway long story short, I taught…

Strawberry Swirl Mug Cake (gluten free, paleo, grain free)

Mug, er Bowl Cake If you follow me on my Instagram stories or Snapchat you know my kid loves him some breakfast, especially pancakes in the morning…. but seriously, who has time to make pancakes before school on a regular basis, not this mama. However, I still want Jack to fill up with a hearty meal before school and paleo pancakes are a great vessel for that. So how can I get lots of belly filling, energy giving goodness into my little man in the wee morning hours without it…

Paleo Pancakes: legit (Paleo, Gluten Free, Dairy Free)

Practice Makes Pancake I’ve been working on this pancake recipe for some time. A pancake recipe that I could thoroughly enjoy without feeling like crap afterward. A pancake recipe in which I could eat a proper portion and feel great afterward. If you’re new to my blog, let me fill you in… I need to watch my carb and sugar intake something fierce. Carbs and sugar, along with oh you know just a handful of other foods aggravate my autoimmune symptoms. While there are periods where I abstain from paleo…

Low Carb Zucchini Fritters

Oodles of Zoodles! Lately zoodles are my BFF. They’re great for salads, as pasta substitute and come one, they’re fun to make! I can’t be the only one who has play-doh flash backs when cranking the spiralizer!?!? If you don’t have one yet and are wondering which one I use, it’s the Vegetti Pro. I like this one because it works really well, it has a suction cup thingy that sticks to the counter so you can apply adequate pressure when making the spirals, and it creates nice, even, long…

Lemon Shortbread Cookies with Sesame Seeds (paleo!)

These grain (and refined sugar) free cookies are delicate and buttery with hints of lemon, ginger, and honey. The turmeric only just comes through as a little spice, and the toasted sesame seeds on top bring it all together. An ideal summer cookie! These go great with lavender iced tea, lemonade or whatever chilled libation you’re serving at your next outdoor gathering. I love treats you can feel good about eating, no guilt or belly ache here. I was a little perplexed as to how I would make short bread…

Banana Bunny Breakfast Muffins

At my mother’s cafe in Coral Gables, Fl, Green Gables Cafe, they have been serving Morning Glory Muffins for as long as I can remember. Hearty muffins made with whole wheat flour, carrot, pineapple and brown sugar. They are amazing and decadent. Not only do I miss them because I live half way across the world, but because there is no way I would eat one now. Indulging in glutinous treats is just not an option for me. Yet, there is something about dunking a muffin in to a hot…

Garlic Bread!

this post contains affiliate links Who doesn’t love bread? It’s one of the hardest thing for people to give up when they go paleo. While I’m not a fan of integrating bread like foods in to MY everyday rotation, it’s reallllyyyyy nice to have them for a special occasion like brunch or a dinner party. This flat bread is full of flavor, and has a little more bounce to it than other paleo flat bread/ pizza crusts. I ventured in to adding yeast to my recipe. First, of course, I…

Soft & Crunchy Chocolate Chunk Cookies

‘Tis the season for cookies! Although I love chocolate, I haven’t had many sweets in the last few months because of my AIP journey… but it’s the holidays, so even if I can’t pig out on cookies, my friends still can 🙂 I’ve been working cookie recipes to gift for the holidays, so there will be many more to come! Stay tuned. These came out delish. They were crispy on the edges and soft on the inside without being too crumbly.   Let cool before digging in 🙂 You can…
