Romantic Rose Saffron Tiramisu

Amy No Comments

I tend to think of Valentine’s Day as a gim­micky com­mer­cial scam, how­ev­er, I’ll cel­e­brate LOVE any day of the week, and take any excuse to bake a roman­tic deca­dent dessert for the peo­ple I love. Which is where this Rose Saf­fron Tiramisu comes in! This time of year, I just love cre­at­ing Mid­dle East­ern inspired LOVE cakes. Rose, Car­damom, and Pis­ta­chio are all thought of as nat­ur­al aphro­disi­acs, and are often mar­ried togeth­er in Mid­dle East­ern desserts. Last year I made a whim­si­cal Gluten-Free Rose Read more […]

Lemon Tart — Gluten-Free, Grain-Free, and Refined Sugar Free

Amy No Comments

  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 […]

Great Gluten Free Grain Series: Spring Millet with Asparagus, Artichoke Hearts, English Peas & Tarragon Mustard Vinaigrette

Amy No Comments

I real­ize Spring is fly­ing by and I have yet to share the Spring edi­tion of my Great Gluten Free Grain Series… (Psst…if you hap­pened to miss it, Win­ter brought a beau­ti­ful Brus­sels Sprout Wild Rice Sal­ad and Maple Sage Quinoa.) Have you been indulging in as much local organ­ic aspara­gus, arti­chokes, spring peas, rhubarb and straw­ber­ries as I have?! From hav­ing end­less local sea­son­al pro­duce come through the kitchen at the restau­rant, to per­son­al vis­its to the week­end Farmer’s mar­kets, I Read more […]

Spinach Artichoke Soup with Roasted Jerusalem Artichokes

Amy No Comments

  As Win­ter makes its exit, Spring is near­ing, which brings a fresh new sea­son of vibrant greens, includ­ing some of my all-time favorites, Spinach and Arti­chokes! And while they’re in no way relat­ed to the arti­choke, or Jerusalem for that mat­ter, we are near­ing the end of the Jerusalem Arti­choke (also known as sun­chokes) sea­son. This deli­cious root veg­etable is rarely used, and def­i­nite­ly under-appre­ci­at­ed. Jerusalem arti­chokes sup­port gut health, and are a great source of potas­si­um Read more […]

Very Berry Paleo Muffins

Very Berry Paleo Muffins!

Amy No Comments

It’s mov­ing time! Which means I have a whole kitchen full of spices and food to clean out. I had lots of berries in the freez­er and I was han­ker­ing for a lit­tle Paleo treat last week just before I set out for Coachel­la. These Paleo muffins made the per­fect snack for break­fast and late night treats in our Palm Desert con­do for the week­end. I had pre­ma­ture­ly packed all of my muf­fin lin­ers so I had to make them with­out. I sprayed the pan with Trad­er Joe’s coconut oil spray, yet my muffins were Read more […]
