Bone Broth Braised Beef Heart

I want to take away the stress, trim the time and reduce the energy required for your dinner preparations. Your evening meal should be a relaxing, indulgent, closing act of the day. Dinner that is simple, nutritious, straightforward and requires a humble pot and stock. Today we get to take a look at a beautiful…

Bone Broth – Beef Tongue

We live in a culture of hot & fried – fast food. I want to bring us back to low and slow – soul food. The meals where the love that went into the preparation can be tasted. To nurture the food we plan on serving others and take joy in the anticipation of that…

Vegan Cashew Ice Cream

I have been making this dessert for years. Its one of our family favorites. Previously, I had been using canned coconut cream – which although delicious and an outmatched dairy substitute – brings along with it gums, fillers and BPA. Not a fan of any of those! I figured “its dessert, dont sweat the small…

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…

AIP – Chicken Liver Jerky

Living out in the boonies, and accommodating health issues means we pack food every time we leave the house. I dont like to buy too many convenience foods ( They’re so expensive!!) but I had been purchasing jerky online for the long days into town. I had some liver pate I had made and froze…

Super-Berry Bars

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…

Red Wine and Fennel Gizzards

Have I mentioned before how important it is to get to know your local farmer? Well, I’ll say it again. Get to know you’re local farmer! It is truly life changing. For them – and for you! Stay tuned for an upcoming post featuring our Family’s local farmer- and good friends – Apsey Farms ,…

Blueberry Coconut Breakfast Cake

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. Inspiration happens in…
