Turmeric Tea

Turmeric Tea

Everywhere I look, I keep reading about and seeing the health benefits of this ancient Indian spice.   Dr. Mercola calls it “The spice that ignites your body’s astonishing immune system”. Not even aware if its amazing qualities, I have been using it for years in […]

Gluten Free Blueberry Muffins

Gluten Free Blueberry Muffins

Ok, so since I have been gluten free, I have made recipe after recipe trying to make the perfect blueberry muffin!  You see, growing up, I was obsessed with the boxed blueberry muffins.  Now I am not saying these taste just like the boxed stuff, […]

Strawberry Shortcake

Strawberry Shortcake

Guess what is in season?? Strawberries!  Yum, nothing like fresh and sweet strawberries.  This shortcake recipe is by far my husband’s favorite gluten free dessert I make.  It’s so simple and healthy!  Can’t wait to take my kids to pick fresh strawberries next week!

Gluten Free Strawberry Shortcake

  • 2 eggs
  • 1/4 cup melted butter or coconut oil
  • 3 tablespoons honey
  • 1 cup almond flour, packed
  • 2 tablespoons coconut flour, packed
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • dash of sea salt
  1. Preheat oven to 325.
  2. Whisk together eggs, butter, and honey.
  3. Add all dry ingredients.  Combine well.
  4. Using a large scoop, scoop batter onto a baking sheet and bake about 20-25 minutes until golden brown.
  5. Let cool a few minutes before slicing in half.
  6. Fill each biscuit with alternating layers of whipped cream, coconut whipped cream, dairy free vanilla pudding or vanilla yogurt frosting and freshly sliced strawberries.
  7. Top with remaining biscuit and serve.

*yields 8 biscuits

To make more of a sauce for your shortcakes, simply toss your sliced strawberries with a little bit of honey, and let macerate for about an hour.  The moisture will be drawn out of the berries and create a lovely sauce.

Roasted Carrots

Roasted Carrots

Everyone knows by now that I loved roasted veggies.  This is just a basic recipe, so feel free to jazz it up with freshly chopped herbs after cooking.  I’m a bit of a purist, so I stick with olive oil, sea salt and freshly ground […]

Creamy Balsamic Dressing

Creamy Balsamic Dressing

As a child I remember my mom eating tuna fish straight from the can, drenched in balsamic vinegar.  How odd, right?  Well for some reason that flavor combination has stuck with me and I created a dressing using traditional mayo and the vinegar.  It’s a […]
