Primal Ricotta Cookies

After going Paleo/Primal, I just don’t get the same enjoy­ment out of Christ­mas cook­ies this sea­son any­more, so I thought it was about time to adapt some of my hol­i­day favorites to a grain-free ver­sion. I start­ed with the recipe that just about every­one loves– Ricot­ta Cook­ies. The Pri­mal ver­sion tastes like a pret­ty dif­fer­ent cook­ie with the almond meal and coconut sug­ar, but it still has that great light pil­lowy tex­ture and rich cheese fla­vor, with an added bonus of deli­cious almond and maple notes.

 Pep­per­mint has always been one of my favorite hol­i­day fla­vors, from Pep­per­mint Mochas to this pale pink can­dy cane ice cream they sell on Main Street in Dis­ney­land that is the most per­fect treat to enjoy while watch­ing the mag­i­cal hol­i­day parade. Yes I’m a grown adult and I am still obsessed with Dis­ney. But back to the pep­per­mint. I love how refresh­ing it is, and even though it’s cold out­side, some­how the cold chill it leaves in your mouth is so com­fort­ing. I was thrilled to see that the Food Read more […]

 One of my favorite Fall and Win­ter side dish­es has always been pota­toes au gratin. The com­bi­na­tion of pota­toes and warm gooey cheese is such a deli­cious com­fort food, and it always reminds me of my Aunt’s ver­sion with lots of onions in the cheese sauce…mmm mmm good! Now I real­ize there are so many dif­fer­ent ways to make au gratin, even those that are Paleo approved, like this Paleo Turnip Gratin with Sliv­ered Almonds. It is a per­fect way to keep you and your fam­i­ly Paleo over this hol­i­day sea­son. Read more […]

Wow did this one go quick! I made this pri­mal white choco­late cran­ber­ry cheese­cake for my family’s thanks­giv­ing feast and it was one of my favorite cheese­cakes I’ve made, and the fam­i­ly was delight­ed too. The crust and fill­ing were pret­ty close to my stan­dard recipes, but the sweet and tart cran­ber­ry com­pote just per­fect­ly com­pli­ment­ed the creamy heav­en­ly cheese­cake. The appear­ance is sim­ple yet full of hol­i­day cheer with the bright red berries in con­trast to the snowy white choco­late shav­ings and Read more […]
