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

Gluten-free Baked Chicken Strips with Honey Mustard Sauce (Paleo & SCD)

If there’s one thing that frustrates me the most, it’s having to make 2 different meals at dinner time. I try to feed my son what we are having for dinner that night, but sometimes the flavors are too mature for his pallet, so I like to keep some more kid friendly options in the … 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

Grilled aritchokes with r√©moulade dipping sauce

It’s coming to the end of the barbeque season which is a double edge sword. On one hand, I’m sad because the ease of throwing meat and veggies on the grill at the end of a long day will no longer be in my grasp. But on the other hand, Fall and Winter bring some … Continue reading

Chicken Bolognese Sauce

This dish was created out of leftovers. And laziness. It was a Saturday and I put off going to the store all day, so when it came time for dinner, I found myself in a pickle. We’ve been trying to save money by not going out, so I rummaged through the fridge and pulled out … Continue reading

Easy Trail Mix

I’ve been reading a lot about the benefits of soaking and dehydrating nuts prior to eating them, so I thought I would try it for the first time for my trail mix. I purchased all of my raw nuts and seeds at Whole Foods in the bulk section. It is much cheaper than buying a … Continue reading

Crock Pot Italian Fagioli Soup

This soup was inspired by a copy cat recipe of Olive Garden’s Pasta e Fagioli soup that a friend passed along to me.¬† Her soup was delicious, but not SCD legal and also had a lot of ingredients that I can’t eat right now (see my Facebook Post). I substituted ground turkey and chicken broth … Continue reading

Thai Style Coconut Curry

I love to go out to Thai food but it gets so pricy and my favorite restaurant won’t deliver outside a 5 mile radius (we’re about 6.5..they won’t do it). My first venture into the land of Thai was my Thai Coconut Soup (Tom Kha Gai), a relatively easy soup that warms the soul and … Continue reading

Prawn and Heirloom Tomato Pasta

The produce available right now is so mouth-watering! All of the gorgeous squashes, pears, and apples are so inspiring and make me want to buy them without even having a purpose for them. One of my favorites are the succulent heirloom tomatoes, in all of their vibrant colors. This dish features these gems, along with … Continue reading

Gluten-Free Vanilla Almond Granola

The first day of Autumn is quickly approaching and it’s still 95 degrees where we live! If I wasn’t so much of a wuss in the snow, I’d pick up and move to the East Coast so I could do some leaf peeping and enjoy the Fallidays properly. Have you heard of leaf peeping? We … Continue reading
