Coffee Smoothie

It’s hot outside and I didn’t feel like eating a big lunch. A smoothie sounded good and since I am able to eat just about anything now, I decided to experiment with a smoothie recipe. It turned out pretty good.

Sorry – no pictures and I need to get one of those recipe plug-ins!

Hot Chocolate and Chocolate “Mousse”

If you have a lot of food sensitivities like me, you will like this dessert. If you don’t, there is much better stuff out there.

Grain Free “Vanillekipferl”

Vanillekipferl were my favorite Christmas cookies when I was growing up. The dough for these cookies consists of flour, sugar, butter, and ground hazelnuts (or almonds). The baked cookies are then coated with a mixture of powdered sugar and vanilla flavored sugar. I made these last night and decided to try a grain-free version of […]

Homemade Coconut Cream Concentrate

Coconut cream concentrate is a yummy snack that is Paleo and GAPS friendly and can also be used for baking. Unfortunately it comes at a fairly high price at Selina Naturally for example. However, it is really easy to make yourself.

Place unsweetened, shredded coconut in food processor. Run on high until a paste starts […]

Low Carb Sunflowerseed Cookies

DH went back to eating low carb. He sticks to Paleo meals quite often, but also some regular low carb foods. Since I love to cook, and I want him to succeed in eating LC, I am always looking for new things to make for him. I either come up with my own recipes, or […]
