Gluten Free Mac and Cheese

Summers are not for cooking.  Am I right? The days are long, hot and my kids are only interested in swimming or playing with their cousins.  It’s hard enough to wrangle them to the table to eat…so the idea of spending hours in the kitchen cooking up new...

Homemade Plantain Chips

My husband told me yesterday that I have a plantain problem. Um, I guess I’ve been a little obsessed with them lately. Personally I can’t think of a reason NOT to love plantains.  They allow me to make grain-free versions of some of my favorite comfort...

DIY Freezer Protein Bars for Kids

I have to come clean about something here. My kids love bars. My daughter loves them so much she asks me for a bar about 30 times a day and I do not exaggerate that number in the slightest. As a mom, I like the idea of a bar.  You know…a small, portable (!!),...

Orange Creamsicle Smoothie

How to Make Bone Broth with EXTRA Minerals

My grandma called it stock.  Some people call it broth.  No matter what you call it, homemade bone broth is a nutritional powerhouse and to date I haven’t found any condition it won’t help.  Homemade broth, made with bones in particular, is the first thing I make when...

Sweet Potato French Toast (gluten-free)
