Paleo Pumpkin Pancakes

Who doesn’t love breakfast for dinner? We certainly do, especially our boys. These light-as-souffle pancakes work just as well for breakfast as they did for our dinner last week. My older son helped me mix the batter, and then enjoyed his pancakes covered in maple syrup, but my younger son […]


Strawberry Cashew Chia Pudding (Vegan)

We’ve made a habit of adapting the chia pudding recipe in “Tu Casa Mi Casa” to make a delicious, filling, and beautiful breakfast. My husband prepares the pudding at night; in the morning, I quickly cut up some fruit and added salted nuts or seeds, and unsweetened coconut flakes – […]


Salmon in Almond Cream Sauce

This recipe is adapted from “The Dairy-Free Kitchen” by Ashley Adams. I highly recommend this cookbook for anyone with a dairy allergy. The original recipe called for chicken but we used some lovely Arctic Char instead (we consider Salmon and Arctic Char interchangeable in recipes, and purchase whichever is the […]


Zucchini Salad

Last week’s farm basket included some beautiful summer squash, basil, and parsley. Instead of cooking the zucchini, we decided to try a raw preparation. We based this recipe on one we found in The New York Times by Alexa Weibel; her version included pecorino, garlic, and almonds. Ours is vegan […]


Georgian Pecan-Crusted Trout

Toasting the pecans before rolling the trout fillets brings out a deeper flavor in the nuts, which partners really nicely with the lightly seasoned almond flour breading. The end result is surprisingly light and flavorful. We found this recipe in “Paleo Comfort Foods” by Julie & Charles Mayfield and we […]


Simple Paleo Biscuits

These almond-flour and coconut-oil biscuits are really easy to make and taste great fresh from the oven and toasted the next day. Slide a few fried eggs over top, and use them to sop up warm egg yolk. Or serve them with homemade breakfast sausage and dairy-free gravy. Delicious! Thanks […]


Vegan Chia Pudding

We found a recipe for Chia Pudding in “Tu Casa Mi Casa” that used maple syrup to sweeten and vanilla bean to season. We opted for lower-cost and more accessible vanilla extract, and homemade date paste for natural sweetness. My husband prepared the pudding at night; in the morning, I […]


Vegan Carrot Cake Bread

We adapted this recipe from a Paleo Carrot Cake Bread recipe we found from Real Food with Jessica. With a few minor adjustments, we created a vegan and sugar free version that worked great for pre-workout or mid-morning snacks.  


Spicy Tomatillo Avocado Salsa

This is smoky and tangy salsa originally from “Tacolicious” combines roasted and fresh tomatillos with avocado and fresh jalapeno. You can dial the spice up or down based on the amount of jalapeno you include.  


Tomato Peach Basil Summer Salad

I took both boys with me to a local farmer’s market over the weekend, and knew we had to come home with a big bag of fresh, beautiful heirloom tomatoes and juicy peaches. Once we arrived home, I searched for a way to use them together, and found a recipe […]
