Key Lime Pots de Creme (Paleo, Keto, Egg + Nut Free)

I’m super excited about partnering with Vital Protiens to bring you a bunch of recipes packing collagen! I love gelatin, yes I do! I have been using gelatin since the begining of my healing journey to patch up that leaky gut, streghthen my nails and hair, and give life to my skin. The first time I heard of beef gelatin it was from my friend Heather. She loves to research things, so much so that she got a masters in being a librarian. Not sure what you call that degree….

Banana Bread Pancakes (Super Fluffy, Nut Free, Paleo Pancakes)

Why Nut Free? I kind of avoided coconut flour pancakes for a while. I was convinced there could not be a fluffy pancake with such a dense flour. I digress. These bad boys are pancake perfection. I was asked to make nut free paleo recipes for a client, and I made a primal, chocolate version of these which a pretty ridiculous looking … like brownies! My low carb pancakes are usually my go-to made with almond meal, and they’re super delish. But I am always looking to make recipes that…

Raw Chocolate Coconut Macaroons

  These little vegan-ish treats have been a staple at my mother’s health food restaurant going on eight years. They’re the perfect treat. Bite size. No bake. Healthy. Delicious. Pretty much compiled of a few super foods, these macaroons are nutrient dense too. They melt in your mouth. They’re rich. Just the right, satisfying size. Talk about the right way to indulge. Today I’ve made them using Truvia Nectar and they turned out better than ever. So amazing. Truvia Nectar is a seamless substitute for honey, with half the calories. Win-win!…

Bay Leaf Panna Cotta with Roasted Cherries & Brown Butter Caramel Sauce

I used to be a chocolate purist. My desserts were always lava cakes, hold the fruit sauce. Brownies, chocolate chip cookies, even just a piece of dark chocolate. How things have changed. Now, a veteran to the paleo lifestyle, a Whole30 doer, an autoimmune protocol success, I like my desserts nutrient dense, lightly sweet and delicate, most of the time. I still love chocolate. Why bay leaves you ask? Many moons ago, I found myself at a Supper Club dinner. A pretty hipster, fantastically elite dinner party, hosted at a…

Cowboy Cookies

I think every time I share a cookie recipe I start with a declaration of love for cookies. I just can’t help it. I don’t crave cake or donuts or pie. When I think of a sweet treat, it’s cookies. The minute that bag of Otto’s Cassava Flour arrived at my house the thoughts began to creep in to my mind. I try and tell my self, I’m going to use it to cook with, I envision beautiful hand pies, tortillas & breaded chicken, but cookies quickly push those thoughts…

Cook Smart, Not Hard

People often ask me how I have time to make these intricate meals with a toddler at home… well… I cook smart, not hard. A little forsight, a little prep here and there & being savvy with left overs- and you can eat like a queen every time! My last 3 meals are a great example of this. Yesterday for lunch I roasted some butternut squash. I know I can’t eat a whole (big) one in one meal. I sliced half of it in to chips, and left the other…
