Big & Soft Paleo Ginger Molasses Cookies

Oh goodness… I can’t believe it’s December! What happened to November?! In less than 2 weeks AJ and I will celebrate our 10th wedding anniversary, and then in 2 1/2 weeks it will be Christmas. It’s all coming so fast – time needs to slow down so I can get done what I want to!…

Traditional Stuffing with Parsley, Sage & Thyme

Whenever I think of Thanksgiving meal, my mind immediately goes straight to dessert (like to Dairy Free Eggnog, Guilt-Free Pecan Pie Cookies or Maple Pumpkin Pie).  But coming in at a close second is always stuffing. I love stuffing, especially slathered in gravy and mingled with small bits of turkey or whatever else is floating…

Mom’s Amazing Gluten Free & Vegan Apple Pie

Pie… it’s one of the best three letter words ever (especially when it’s homemade, slightly warm, and served with your favorite dairy free vanilla ice cream and a cup of coffee!). My mom’s homemade apple pie is the best, which is why her recipe inspired me to create my own gluten free version. This Mom’s Amazing Gluten…

Gluten & Dairy Free Maple Pumpkin Pie

The first Thanksgiving that I was gluten, dairy, and refined sugar free was interesting. It wasn’t bad by any means, just different. I was going through a time of transition, an adjustment period in my diet, and I had to learn how to make my favorite recipes differently. It was actually my sister in law…

Paleo Animal Crackers

I loved animal crackers as a child. My mom would frequently buy them for me as a treat. I would play with them, bite a head off, play with them some more, dismember a bear… It sounds much more gruesome than it is, BUT admit it – you did it too! I wanted my children to…

Dairy Free Pumpkin Spice Coffee Creamer (Vegan/No Sugar Added)

I normally don’t take creamer in my coffee. Well, at least not anymore. I used to. Up until I changed my diet and couldn’t find the right sort of dairy free creamer substitute. I tried everything from dairy free coffee creamers to canned coconut milk to any and every dairy free milk under the sun….

White Cioppino with Kale (Seafood Stew)

It might not be officially fall, but it feels somewhat fall-ish here in Alaska. The temps have dropped, the leaves are falling, and I have the sudden urge to make Dairy Free Peppermint Hot Cocoa (a stevia sweetened version of it anyways) and wear my goose down vest. I’m sad to have to say goodbye…

Mashed Cauliflower with Roasted Garlic & Chives

Several weeks ago I was checking out at the grocery store when the man behind me was inspecting the goods in my cart and says, “Wow, you eat really healthy; you’ve got a lot of produce there.” The man went on to tell me he owned a farm, which to my surprise was located within…

Slammin’ Alaska Salmon Burgers with Garlic Dill Aioli

I live in Alaska and eat fresh salmon from my freezer regularly, but do you think I have a salmon recipe posted on my website? Nope, not a single one. You see, I’ve had salmon prepared just about every way imaginable. Like most Alaskan kids, I’ve been eating it my entire life. My family has…
