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 I originally made them to go with a roasted chicken and root vegetables, but ended up eating all of the leftovers for breakfast all week!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

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

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

Chicken Parmesan with Spaghetti Squash

I’m Italian and love the food of the culture in all it’s grainy glory.  While I’ve had a gradual decent from the traditional white pasta (went to brown rice pasta first for the few years before I went SCD), I still miss it.  My husband used to love my chicken parmesan and I decided that … Continue reading

All About Almond Flour

I’ve had a lot of questions about baking with Almond flour, so I thought I’d do a little intro to it for those of you who have never baked with it before. The obvious reason I use it is because with SCD, I can’t have any grains. There’s also a lot of health benefits, which … Continue reading

Cupcakes. YES, SCD cupcakes

On the surface, the Specific Carbohydrate Diet looks like it’s going to put an end to all things tasteful and sweet, but once you start experimenting a bit, you’ll find that you can still have all of your favorites! Chocolate is my favorite, and unfortunately SCD strictly prohibits any cocoa (even unsweetened), but it does … Continue reading

Carrot Raisin Muffins

A friend of mine passed a recipe on to me for Paleo muffins that came from a CrossFit website. I’ve just recently been acquainted with the Paleo diet, and while there are a few minor differences to SCD, it is really easy to convert Paleo recipes to SCD legal ones. I omitted a couple of … Continue reading
