Chocolate-Dipped Cookie Dough Bites (GF/DF/V/NS/Grain Free)
As you may know, I have a sweet tooth, a deep and abiding love for sweets that has been a beast to tame in the transition from my former I-exercise-so-I-can-eat-whatever-I-want mentality to a more balanced lifestyle that focuses on nutrient-dense … Continue reading
What’s In The Pantry?

Curried Carrot Dip (GF/DF/V)
I’m sticking with last week’s vegetable-based dip theme, because this recipe offers an appetizingly high return on the very small amount of time you need to invest in it. The fabulous thing about healthful, nutrient-packed dips is that they can … Continue reading
Warm Spinach Artichoke Dip (GF/DF/V)
This dip is healthy enough to be a legit side dish at dinnertime, so you can snack away with abandon and without the guilt. This is a good thing, because once you taste it, you may just want to steal … Continue reading

Pão (de Queijo) Dairy-Free Variations Part II: The Sweet (GF/DF)
My last post featured variations on the small, savory Brazilian snackie bread called Pão de Queijo. This time around, I’ve eliminated the cheese in favor of sweet flavorings, making these pão into tasty little bite-sized dessert pastries that won’t blow your daily … Continue reading
Pão (de Queijo) Dairy-Free Variations Part I: The Savory (GF/DF)
I am obsessed with Pão de Queijo, small Brazilian cheese bread puffs which are traditionally made with gluten-free cassava (a.k.a. manioc, a.k.a tapioca) flour. I find gluten-free “bread” to be something of an oxymoron, so finding a traditional, bread-like recipe … Continue reading
