Paleo Honey Biscuits (GF, SCD, Paleo)

These remind me a little of corn bread, especially if you drizzle some honey on top. I originally made them to go with a roasted chicken and root vegetables, but ended up eating all of the leftovers for breakfast all week! I spread them with a little butter and homemade blueberry preserves. Ingredients (makes 4 … Continue reading

Grain-free Apple Spice Coffee Cake (SCD and Paleo)

We hosted a pre-Thanksgiving brunch at our house a few weeks ago with some of our dear friends and my parents. It was such a great time of fellowship for the adults, and play time for all of the kiddos. Having a brunch is a nice change to the usual dinner party, and truth be … Continue reading

SCD Grain-free Lasagna 2.0

I made my Grain-Free Lasagna last night for a friend who is on the SCD and just had knee surgery. I wanted it to be a little healthier this time, and also less time consuming so I baked the zucchini at 400 degrees first instead of pan frying it. I haven’t calculated it, but I … Continue reading

Grain-free and Dairy-free Pumpkin Pie (SCD)

I can eat eggs again! Just in time too, as I couldn’t come up with a pumpkin pie I liked without the use of eggs. The crust on this pie is really simple to make and just presses in to the pie plate instead of having to roll anything out. You can use canned pumpkin … Continue reading

I am trying to make all of my Thanksgiving recipes early so I can have them up for you in time to go grocery shopping before Thursday! Here is my favorite stuffing recipe.

Baked Squash Fries with Marinara Sauce

These “fries” are actually not fried at all. I tried them both ways, and much preferred the baked version. Very surprising considering my love for french fries! They are super easy to make and are a great snack or appetizer. Serve them hot with a side of warm marinara sauce or dipping sauce of your … Continue reading

Contest Closed: Weekend Giveaway: The Gluten-Free Almond Flour cookbook

The Gluten-Free Almond Flour Cookbook By Elana Amsterdam When I was first diagnosed with Ulcerative Colitis and told that I should stop eating gluten, I didn’t even know what gluten was! After a lot of research on the subject and countless hours scowering blogs and websites for new recipes, I ended up with about 100 … Continue reading

Fall is in the Air!

Well sort of. On Friday, it was 101 degrees out. Yesterday, we woke up to rain and cloudy skies! It was perfect… until the sun came out and my heavily overdressed body and feet started sweating in the 75 degree weather. Looked at the forecast today and it seems we’ll be in the 90’s again … Continue reading

Cheesy Stuffed Summer Squash

This is dish is deceiving! At first site and bite, you’ll think you’re eating something that is undoubtedly filled with calories and fat. However, using olive oil instead of butter and mushrooms to give it a meaty filling, each serving is only about 130 calories and is delicious! Ingredients (serves 6) 3 medium yellow squash … Continue reading

Grain-free (and unintentionally vegetarian) Lasagna

Update: Please see my updated Grain-Free Lasagna recipe here!   What was once therapeutic and relaxing for me, has now become chaotic and stressful! My son is crawling everywhere, gets bored of an activity after 5 minutes, and loves to climb the stairs. Needless to say, cooking is not as easy as it used to … Continue reading
