Nothing beats a fresh tangy lemon tart with raspberries on a warm late Spring day! Okay, a handcrafted ice cream cone might also be in the running.
But that sweet and sour pair of lemon and raspberries gets me every time, whatever form it takes.
When I was living in Australia, I realized that lemon tarts are a thing. Maybe it's just me, but I don't really see them in the states. In Oz, you can find a lemon tart in almost any cafe, to be delightfully paired with a fresh cuppa, tea Read more [...]
Sometimes we all just need a little chocolate in our life! That's how I was feeling when I decided to create this clean Dark Chocolate Oatmeal Pie with no refined sugars and no flour.

This is a recipe you do not want to miss out on! It's great to make for guests so you don't eat the whole thing yourself, because believe me, you will be Read more [...]
My new roommate is bringing all sorts of life and goodness to our home! She planted a small garden which I am thrilled to start incorporating into my food, and this weekend she went Cherry Picking in Leona Valley at Villa del Sol, bringing home a heap of beautiful Rainier and Bing cherries. When she asked me if I wanted to make a pie with these beauties, of course I set right out looking for a Primal or Paleo pie recipe to start from. I couldn't think of anything better to bake in honor of Father's Read more [...]
