Recipe: Baked Apple-Nut Crisp

I’m guessing I’m not the only one turning to warm, cozy foods when the days get shorter, darker, and colder. But my experiences so far with grain- and refined sugar-free apple crisps had left me…well, less than comforted. I think we can all admit that without wheat flour and oats, crisps just aren’t the same. […]

‘Tis the Season

Ah, the holidays. Though it may vary depending on where you live and what you believe, there are usually pine trees or pine tree pieces about, annoying holiday-themed pop music playing in stores, images of an old bearded man everywhere, or perhaps a menorah. My parents are both Episcopalians, and I was raised attending Midnight […]

Recipe Shout-Out: Sweet Potato Muffins

So…I can’t lie. I’ve made these twice. This week. Moist, dense, nutritious, and totally comforting. I’m waiting for some room to open up in my stomach now so I can have another one before bed. The oncoming fall season has put me into baking overdrive recently. I would put the brakes on it, but I’m […]

Recipe: Primal Frangipane Tart

Oh, have I got a treat for you. Not only is this dessert Primal friendly, but it’s also fairly quick and simple to put together. Especially if you put a little extra effort into the presentation, no one will be the wiser that it’s not full of flour and sugar. Frangipane and I go way […]

Entertaining? Some Primal-Friendly Ideas

I’ve had several nights of entertaining in a row, and while I’m freshly tapped out of original recipes, I thought I’d share what fed the throngs of visitors we’ve had recently. All of these menus were relatively simple and I doubt anyone would even miss the grains or sugars. Also have to apologize for the […]

Recipe: Primal Banana Bread

That “B” word doesn’t show up much around these parts. But I’ve been on the hunt for the perfect banana bread for years. Going Primal didn’t slow my urge for a moist, dense loaf of bananafied goodness, so I decided to try a few recipes out there. What I kept running into was something closer […]

Recipe: Strawberry-Vanilla Almond Muffins

Yeah, yeah, I know. This is really just an easy change to a recipe I just posted. So sue me. But this version was such a wonderful hit of spring that I had to share. Besides, I was swimming—SWIMMING!—in strawberries and I needed to find a way to use them before they decomposed on me. […]

Recipe: Blueberry-Apricot Cardamom Almond Flour Muffins

Whew, that’s a mouthful! And yes they were. A tasty, tasty mouthful. It was that time again, time for a substitution treat, so I trolled the internet looking for a muffin recipe (see my previous article about substitutions here). I’m not a great baker. Never was pre-Primal either. So you won’t find many original baking […]
