Power Butter

This blog post is no revolutionary recipe that will change the world and take it by storm. Today I am more interested in presenting you with an idea. Namely: upgrading. The practice of raising something to a higher standard. Thats the method I want to see implemented in your kitchen! Its such a useful tool….

Grain Free – Vegan Seed Bread

This vegan bread is super simple and quick! It was born one afternoon when I just had to bite into something chewy and lather it in oil. My egg lady has had a short – and I am wayyyy too farm girl to go to the store for eggs. Its amazing what you can accomplish…

Raw-AIP Strawberry Rhubarb Tart

My, my, my, it is a delight making pretty food. But lets be honest, it can look beautiful and taste awful – and that is absolutely the most cruel trickery of all. Thankfully – that is not the case here. I actually got the comment from my husband that “its beautiful, and tastes even better…

Black Bean Chocolate Cake

Nostalgia. There are those who enjoy chocolate – and there are those who are wrong. I always chose chocolate. Whenever it was my birthday and my sweet, sweet mother asked me, “steffanie, what kind of cake would you like?” I requested chocolate cake with chocolate frosting. I have apparently not grown up enough to grow…

Keto Coconut Bread

Please try me. I wont disappoint. Being Grain free, I can find myself reminiscing about the yeasty, glutenous, chewy bread you would traditionally dip into herbs and olive oil. Then I quickly remind myself of the back breaking, kneading – hoping and praying over your bread that it will rise – stress that comes with…

These bars. Man – they saved me when I peaked into the fridge to see what dessert I could serve my boys one afternoon, and realized there wasn’t one! What I didn’t realize was the entire sheet of Raw, Vegan, Black bean brownies I had made two days before was gone…. One thing is for…

  Cake. Its whats for breakfast.     Once a week we have an event at our house called “baking day.” This is the day Mom, (me) gets over zealous and enthusiastically prepares and creates as many dishes possible -before my brains explode- and throw them all in the oven all at the same time….

AIP Pastry

Rainy days are for making pastry, mostly so that your tea will have something to accompany it. Yes, that is how I’m justifying these. Flaky, buttery and AIP compliant! You wont feel like you’re missing out on anything. 1 1/2 cup of cassava flour (plus more for dusting) 2 tbsp honey (optional) 1 Tbsp beef…

Spiced Pumpkin Cake

It was my (almost) two year olds birthday, and I wanted to make home something special. I commend my husbands willingness to perform the duty of food critic when it came to this cake, he never once complained about having to take another bite. 😉 I dare say, his suggestions were helpful, this cake turned…

How to put the PRO in Protein.

Cooking a whole chicken, a roast, or a duck can be extremely intimidating – especially for the first time. It doesn’t have to be. And honestly, when putting to practice some of these tips, its nearly effortless. If you’re cooking for flavor, I believe time is your greatest advocate. I know a lot of people…
