Coconut Mango Popsicles

  Who doesn’t love Popsicles on a hot day? These are my 3 year old’s favorite treat right now. I started making these when I was working with kids at a summer camp. Then I got a Norpro Ice Pop Maker and now I make a batch at home every week. Sometimes I make my […]

Homemade Raw Sauerkraut

  Hello dear readers, Well another season is blazing by – Halloween has come and gone and Thanksgiving is upon us in less than two weeks. This morning I ordered my gluten-free pie crust from Bacano Bakery and perused the beautiful sugar-pie pumpkins at the farmers’ market. The weather is finally chilling in California and […]

Red Lentils With Coconut Milk In The Rice Cooker

  My 15-month-old daughter is going through a fun phase right now where she spits out all her food. Sometimes she does it when she doesn’t like something, sometimes she stuffs her mouth too full and doesn’t know what to do so she spits it back out, and sometimes if she’s eating one thing and […]

Dairy-Free Spinach & Mushroom Quiche

  Here’s a super easy recipe for a dairy-free quiche that is perfect for a holiday brunch. In fact, I was planning to take it to a pot-luck brunch this past Sunday but my teething 8-month-old kept me up all night and we didn’t make it to the brunch. The upside was that meant more […]

Fresh Black-Eyed Peas With Spinach & Okra

A couple weeks ago I started seeing fresh black-eyed peas at the farmers’ markets. These are awesome because you don’t have to soak them or cook them for hours, just shell them and cook on the stove top for 20 minutes. They taste so delicious and fresh! The other day I made a wonderful batch […]

Chocolate Quinoa Coconut-Almond Bars

Thank you to all who posted website links and ideas for candida-diet recipes this past month.  I especially enjoyed the Ricki Heller blog Diet, Dessert & Dogs. Some creative and original ideas there!  It has been a challenge, but my husband is now in phase II (Woo-hoo!). Here’s a quick, easy dessert I came up […]

Tempeh Salad With Miso-Dijon Dressing

  In my recent quest to increase my iron intake, I have been eating a lot more meat.  Now in addition, I am trying to increase my estrogen level, which my acupuncturist told me is a bit low.  The first food that comes to mind when it comes to plant estrogen is soy, which is very high in […]

Black Bean & Sweet Potato Quesadillas

  If you haven’t tried them already, another staple that you must have if you are gluten-free is La Tortilla Factory Teff Wraps.  They are delicious tortillas made from teff and millet, two very nutritious gluten-free grains.  You can use them in recipes where you would normally use a flour tortilla.  They are perfect for making […]

Sprouted Graw-nola

  This week I was planning to make a batch of my granola and at the last minute stopped by the gluten-free bakery only to find out they were OUT of gluten-free oats!  They are the only place near me that I know has them, so I was out of luck.  And out of ideas for breakfast […]

Creamy Home-made Almond Milk

Almond Milk   I’ve had a number of responses to my recent posts on raw milk.  It’s exciting that so many people are interested in trying it.  But I also know that it is difficult to come by in many states.  And sometimes you need a substitute when baking, because even raw milk isn’t raw […]
