Vegan-Salted Chocolates

I promise you cant have just one. Believe me, I have tried. At least 100 times. So imagine how many I’ve put away! With a succulent, chewy, caramel filling, and genuine, raw, fermented and organically grown cacao butter and cacao mass, (also known as cacao paste) – its a health food. So I dont feel…

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…

All about That Broth

Bone broth. Two words spoken in my home at least 1/2 a dozen times a day, enjoyed by the mug full another 1/2 a dozen, and utilized in several other methods periodically throughout my time in the kitchen. Its my breakfast and my bedtime snack. My two children ages 6 and 4 could quite possibly…

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…

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…

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…
