Strawberry Avocado Chicken Lettuce Wraps + Spring Bonus Days starts Friday

This recipe is simple, yummy and perfect for spring time.  I based the recipe on a wrap that I enjoyed in a sweet little smoothie shop in Sherpherdstown, WV when Elijah was a baby.  They used a tortilla but I really love using lettuce wraps for it.  I hope you enjoy it as much as we do!

Mint Chocolate Chip Ice Cream (Paleo, GAPS, dairy-free, egg-free and sugar-fee)

This is something I have been wanting to make for a long time!  Ever since I saw a dairy-free recipe that uses spinach leaves by Gnowfglins, I wanted to try making my own concoction of this old time favorite.  That was maybe two years ago…

Indian Style Eggs and a brief update

I have to be honest.  I have not been very motivated to blog lately.  I think this is pretty apparent by the amount of posting I’ve been doing.

At first, I was just busy with the member site.  It’s taken a bit of work to get it running the past couple of years.  But slowly, something else has been peeking its head at me.

Gluten-free Valentine’s Treats and Desserts

Raw Lemon Tart

Happy New Year!  Yeah, I know it’s now February.  I’m a little behind.  Some unexpected things happened in January which set me back a bit and kept me from doing some blog posts like I had intended.  One blog post I hope to do soon will about about egg-free and grain-free baking with the use of grass-fed gelatin.  I have been having great results using gelatin for baked goods and I want to share the ins and outs with you.  Hopefully soon!

Egg-free and Nut-free Pumpkin Pie (GAPS and Paleo)

It took me a few times to get this one right but I finally came up with a great egg and nut-free pumpkin pie!  I was inspired by the Vegan Pumpkin Pie recipe that Spunky Coconut posted a month or so back.  However, we can’t eat agar and wanted to make it GAPS-friendly.

Sunbutter or Peanut Butter Cup Recipe (GAPS, Paleo, dairy-free)

If you want to know why there is a white ring around the top of these little goodies, please see the “note.”

I found this recipe for Peanut Butter Cups several months back and have been drooling over it ever since.  For a while, Elijah couldn’t eat honey and I couldn’t eat chocolate.  But things have changed so I decided to test these little goodies for a Halloween treat, making them GAPS and Paleo friendly as well as dairy and sugar-free.  If you can’t eat peanut butter, you can simply use Sunbutter (sunflower butter)  in its place – or even almond or cashew butter.

Spice Cake Recipe with Buttercream Frosting + Canadian Thanksgiving Menu

It’s been a while since I have written a blog post so I apologize for my absence.  August was busy-busy and September was all about catching up on life.  Slowing down a bit and tending to the details.

Now that it is October, I feel the shift of the fall coming in, and it is lovely.  I thoroughly enjoyed this summer, but it is now time to slow down, breathe, appreciate life a bit more, and make some delicious food.
