Cassava Flour Chocolate Chip Cookies

Be prepared to have your socks knocked off, folks.  This cassava flour cookie dough recipe went through SIX BATCHES (yep…six) of testing and tinkering before I felt they were ready to be shared.  Cookies, cue the bass drum roll, please… Do you know what six batches of cookies in three weeks does to one’s soul?  I…

Apple, Pear & Plantain Cobbler – AIP, Paleo, Gluten Free

Oh me, oh my.  Apple, pear and plantain cobbler pie. (Does that count as a poem?  I’m counting it as one.  My brain fog says its a poem, dognabbit.) Speaking of brain fog, the last few weeks have been pretty crazy.  I mean, I went on my first airplane-included vacation since going AIP!  Prepping for…

Cherry Carob Fudge Pops – AIP, Paleo

Helloooooo, Summer! “Hello, Sam!” Whoa. That was weird. *ahem* So, yeah. Summer = hot. And hot weather = cold snacks. Ice cream, ice lollies, milkshakes, sorbets….its all good!

30-Minute Pumpkin Pie Ice Cream – Autoimmune Paleo

Sometimes, even a gal who is on a strict healing dietary adventure has to have a treat. And sometimes that treat NEEDS to be ice cream. Oh, yes. Yes it does. Finding regular-Paleo ice cream at the market can be a daunting task, but have ya ever had any luck finding an AIP-compliant version of one of the…

Strawberries Romanoff – A Fast AIP, Paleo & Low Carb Dessert

In my late teens and early 20’s I was still under the misguided impression that consuming an extremely low-fat diet was the healthy way to eat. Sure, I looked toned and petite; but I was always hungry, ALWAYS grouchy, and generally not in great health. Eating out on a virtually fat-free diet was definitely easier than…
