Pumpkin Tapioca Pudding | Enjoying this Journey...

Pumpkin Tapioca Pudding

The kids had requested pudding. Taking note of what I had in the cupboards, I knew it’d be tapioca-based. And I figured since we were in the middle of autumn and I had one lonely can of pumpkin left from *last year’s* case (yes, really), I may as well make it a pumpkin pudding. Of course, I intended to share… Read more →

Kombucha Popsicles | Enjoying this Journey...

Kombucha Popsicles

We’ve had a pretty warm spring so far. Like, tank top and shorts warm. I held off turning on the central air as long as I could (and yes, I caved and turned it on already). These kombucha popsicles helped keep us cool though! I love that they’re easy to make and the flavor combinations are endless… Read more →

Golden Tapioca Pudding

Golden Tapioca Pudding

Turmeric is the spice I refill most often in my kitchen. It is also one of my favorite anti-inflammatory food tools. Turmeric is an herb that has traditionally been used to aid and treat inflammation; especially interesting, is its effects on arthritis[1]. In fact, there are many studies on the anti-arthritic efficacy of turmeric in preventing joint swelling and destruction.… Read more →

Cinnamon Donut Holes | Enjoying this Journey...

Cinnamon Donut Holes

When I set out to revamp yet another old recipe, it was no surprise I reached for the cinnamon. The leaves are falling. There’s a chill in the air. That usually when I add cinnamon to every thing in the kitchen. If there were such a thing as a “spirit spice”, cinnamon would be mine. Read more →

AIP Brownies | Enjoying this Journey...

AIP Brownies

It wasn’t long ago I was planning The Mister’s birthday dinner. He requested Roasted Leg of Lamb with Garlic Rosemary Sweet Potatoes and “just a chocolate cake”. *hangs head* It’s not often I bake anymore, but because #loveeg and all, I quickly lined up a recipe to tweak for him and the kids. The end result was a chocolate cake… Read more →

Sweet Potatoes with Marshmallows

Sweet Potatoes and Marshmallows

Crazy, right? But to be fair I didn’t know sweet potatoes like I know them now. I can’t remember a time we had actual sweet potatoes other than an over-glorified side dish. The only time I remember seeing sweet potatoes was during the holidays and they were those canned yams {which we all know are actually sweet potatoes, despite the… Read more →

Apple Crisp

Apple Crisp

With well over 100 pounds of apples still left to go, I’ve been slowly but surely chiseling away at our supply. Last week, I found myself experimenting with an apple crisp recipe. With The Mister out of town for work, he nearly pouted over the phone when I told him I made an apple crisp… He was missing out. So… Read more →

Tigernut Caramel Apples

After picking a crazy amount of no-spray apples, I’ve been busy putting up apple sauce, apple butter, dehydrating apple slices, and baking apple slices. But even still, I have more apples than I can shake a stick at. The Mister and I were talking about our Halloween plans, I mentioned I ordered a few paleo treats for her so we… Read more →

Tigernut Raisin Cookies | Enjoying this Journey...

Tigernut Raisin Cookies

Anytime I reach for my jar of tigernuts, I hear that delightful one-liner from those Slap Chop commercials. You’re gonna love my nuts! I digress. I’ve experimented with a couple different cookie recipes using tigernut flour and so far these are my family’s favorite! They’re slightly reminiscent of an oatmeal raisin cookie. Read more →

Not So Sweet Tzimmes | Enjoying this Journey...

Not So Sweet Tzimmes

When I found myself with the sudden urge to make tzimmes again, I couldn’t help but smile. Of course, this time around I’d have to tweak my old recipe quite a bit to tone down the sweetness. Because, let’s be honest. These ingredients are sweet enough on their own (especially once you’re used to the paleo autoimmune protocol). Read more →

Dragon Fruit Sorbet | Enjoying this Journey...

Dragon Fruit Sorbet

Until recently I had never had dragon fruit. Let alone purchased it. It’s probably one of the most curious looking fruits I’ve seen! The color is magnificent and the inside is not what I expected. Luv was especially curious about this fruit. I asked what color she would guess the inside is… “Pink, like the outside.” I slowly sliced, careful… Read more →
