Coconut Fried Apples

This recipe was originally part of the Braised Pork Chops recipe, but is worthy of separating it all by itself.  Try them as a snack, a tasty dessert, or as a side along any of the pork recipes we’ve got on here.

Cashew “Cheesecake”

Cheesecake is by far my favorite dessert. My friend, Dana, told me about this recipe.  I have to admit that I was a bit skeptical, but I gave it a try.  I absolutely was not disappointed.  It was fabulous! If you are a looking for a substitute for cheesecake, this is it!

Cherry Tart

Recipes posted a year ago:

I’m a huge fan of cherry pie! But alas, it seems the season for cherries is very short around here and generally they grow a lot better about 80 miles east from us.  On our way home from vacation this year, we stopped at a local farm and picked up some veggies and also a nice basket of pie cherries.   Note that the filling I make here is pretty basic with water, honey, tapioca flour, and can be done with pretty much any type of berry desired.  It’s amazing how much the cherry flavor and smell is so much stronger once it is heated up.

Triple Berry Crumble

Today my mom and I picked some raspberries and blackberries over at my uncle’s house.  Berries are very popular here in the Northwest.  I enjoy coming up with many different recipes to use them in.  This dessert tastes just like those marionberry crisps I’ve tried at local restaurants.

Homemade Greek Yogurt

I was recently lucky enough to speak with Dr. Allison Siebecker for a few minutes about gut health.  You can check out her website on SIBO (Small Intestine Bacterial Overgrowth) here.  She mentioned to me that she makes her own Greek yogurt.  It is a very simple process although prep to finish takes about a day.

Grain-Free Chocolate Cupcakes

Recipes posted a year ago:

Happy Leap Day!!

Here is a great treat from a recipe that I modified from Paleo Parents.   Prep time is minimal and you have the option of making regular size cupcakes or small, bite size.  The bite size makes a lot and are perfect to take to a potluck or other social gathering.  I actually made 12 regular size cupcakes and had enough batter leftover so I made 12 smaller ones too. This is a great one to trick your friends with as there really is no way to tell the difference between a “regular” cupcake and these.  A wonderful option is to freeze the little ones and grab one when you feel like having a quick treat.  They will last quite a while in the freezer.

Grain-Free Chocolate Cake

Recipes posted one year ago:

I have seen a few recipes over the last couple of years for grain-free chocolate cake.  The ingredients and amounts all vary slightly.  It’s almost hard to go wrong really.  I have had people recently ask me about making a birthday cake.   This is not super sweet which is perfect.  Just enough for some nice chocolate bliss!  We also have a recipe on our site for orange cake which is also pretty delicious.
