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…

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.

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…

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…

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…

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….

AIP Coconut Butter

Coconut butter. Could I ever say enough about this stuff? Coconut is an incredible fiber source, packed full of essential minerals such as: calcium, magnesium and potassium. It offers amino acids and electrolytes, as well as plenty of the anti aging, saturated fats -the perfect brain food! It aids in digestion and absorption of nutrients….
