I looove this cracker recipe and when I'm feeling nice, sometimes I share them-LOL!
Not long ago, my husband and I shared a piece of country acreage with occasional renters who stayed in a few unique, tiny homes on the property. Most of our guests were a bit 'unique', which is probably why they were drawn to our quirky, little place. We had a balloon pilot who left to sail around the world, a horse trainer, a film student from Belgium working on his PhD for Yale, a paramedic, and a couple who met here...moved away...married, had a baby, and moved back! I can't s...
Truth be told, y'all know I can be a lazy gal, so I often toss all the wet ingredients into my blender! I have a lemon tree that produces the most delicious, thin-skinned Meyer lemons so this works for me! However, these directions are for a mixing bowl and the average lemons and this works great as well. This cake doesn't rise much, so if you have a large loaf pan and hungry mouths to feed, go ahead and double the recipe, you won't be sorry!
These cookies are so much like sugar cookies that you'd never know they were grain, sugar and starch free! I have another great recipe in my book, the Ultimate Grain Free Cookbook, but if you haven't got around to purchasing it yet (it makes a great Christmas gift:) yet, here's another one you'll really enjoy!
You can't go wrong with grain free dumplings in good broth. If you have a pressure cooker, bone broth can be made in a fraction of the time it takes in a slow cooker, a Dutch oven, or
on the stove for that matter. I like how slow cooking wafts the amazing soup aroma throughout the house. Using the bones of free range chickens instead of tossing them in the trash supplies your body with a hefty dose of minerals and collagen. However, many of us have vegetarians in the family or may even be cutting meat back ourselves so a good veggie broth recipe is a necessity these days. Eithe...
Yup, I admit, I can be a bit on the lazy side, so de-glazing pans, scraping brown bits, making a flour roux, and whisking the lumps from refined starches just don’t happen in my kitchen anymore. But that’s okay because this gravy tastes like I made it that old-fashioned way!
We're also big on getting more raw foods in our belly so while this would be considered more of a semi-raw recipe, at least the veggies aren't all cooked to death.
Ahem . . . garlic, cheese, and biscuit? Need I say more? Oh, yes, butter! Or, gravy! My Lazy Gal Blender Gravy, of course. Both recipes are in my new book, but I'll also post the gravy here for the holidays soon. You can never go wrong with great butter or gravy but these cheesy morsels really need no help at all.
This is still one of my all-time favorite recipes when I was still using blanched almonds and shredded coconut (before the flours became readily available). Shredded zucchini makes a 'wormy' frosting and the flavor of these cupcakes is truly out-of-this-world yummy!
You'll get this recipe along with lots of other cupcake/cake and frosting recipes in my Sweet Secrets ebook or paperback but I'm posting this now so you'll have it for your Halloween fun.
We all know that whoopie pies are not really pies at all. They’re more a cross between a cake and a cookie. So, where they got their name is still a mystery to me because I've not yet Googled it. However, I refuse to let these questions keep me up at night, unless I happen to have one of these little goodies calling my name.
These are great treats for Halloween or any of the fun holidays coming up! This one's from my new book, the Ultimate Grain-Free Cookbook, but no blender needed this time :)
Here at my household, we have no idea if these are a cookie, a mini pie. a 'cluster', or even a cupcake since they're baked in a mini muffin tin. As you can see, I finally settled on the cluster. These little babies will work for any of the upcoming holidays and are so quick and simple to throw together they may just become a favorite in your house as well!
