Now that Thanksgiving is outta the way, we are thrilled to announce our holiday survival kits for 2013!
I’m going to come clean here and admit something that I am not very proud of. Over the past month or so I have produced an overwhelming amount of non-paleo, non-glutenfree, full sugar, overly creamfilled, milk chocolate loving desserts. Real talk. I fell off the paleo baking wagon and I fell hard. I made the unfortunate decision of looking past my well loved coconut nectar flour and falling into the contraband arms of plain ol granulated sugar delights.
Please join us at Zest Bakery on Thursday, November 21st from 5pm-7pm for a cooking demo and book signing by Chef Amy Fothergill, author of The Warm Kitchen!
Happy Eggnog Month! Errr... November. :)
If you love eggnog but are now eating paleo or even just dairy-free, this eggnog is for you! It is stupid simple to make and only requires 4 ingredients! Eggs, coconut sugar, almond milk and nutmeg. 5 if you want the adult version ;)
When my sister and I were kids, we used to create breakfast-in-bed menus and take them to our parents. Inside the menu, our parents would find checkboxes next to a list of our offerings: things like eggs, pancakes, waffles, toast, coffee, OJ, hot cocoa, or milk. After they'd made their selection we'd retreat back to the kitchen to assemble their order. Occasionally we'd try to get creative and they would end up with olive pancakes or coffee with grenadine. But no matter what we made, I think they were always appreciative.
In my opinion, there is only one flavor of frozen yogurt worth getting: pistachio. Actually, now that I think about it, my favorite flavor of gelato and ice cream also happens to be pistachio.
Oddly enough, I'm not a fan of nuts in their whole form. I find the way they absolutely always get stuck in my teeth to be off putting.
Halloween is upon us, friends! Don't let your gluten-free eaters go without this Halloween! We have lots of yummy treats to delight!
Check out this year's Halloween menu!
If this pasta dish were one of the Real Housewives ladies on TV, it would definitely be NeNe Leakes, who is a self-proclaimed "rich bitch." If you haven't seen Nene on TV, she is known for her strong, aggressive, and often confrontational personality. Much like Nene, this recipe for fettuccine with avocado-lime white cheddar sauce from Melt, the Art of Macaroni and Cheese, offers no apologies for its richness and has the goods to back it up.
The last time I experienced a coursed menu was on a Valentine’s Day trip to Napa. I had been following the Paleo diet for about a month at that time and was gung-ho about my track to health. Unfortunately what started with a sneaky bite of pasta ended with eight courses of breads, cheeses, burgers and an undeniably delicious chocolate hazelnut dessert.
I don’t regret that particular smorgasbord but you can imagine my excitement when I was offered the chance to eat a meal at Fallon Hills Ranch
