Seth and I were more than 12,000 miles apart when we celebrated 24 years of marriage in January! I was at KTLA’s studios in Los Angeles to talk about how to make healthier food choices without feeling deprived. This was timely because “Quitter’s Day” comes around just a couple of weeks into January. I hadn’t […]

Who doesn’t love a good crisp? I used to make a lot of pies but have recently switched to crisps as they’re easier to make and healthier: under a fine layer of crisp is rich, fruity goodness! My Gluten Free Apple Maple Blueberry Crisp is an irresistible combination of a melt-in-your-mouth apple and blueberry filling, […]

frozen bananas covered in chocolate, sprinkled with coconut and nuts, and served with chopsticks — how good does that sound? I tell you what, it tastes even better. This unique dessert a favorite of mine. Not only is it easy to make, it also keeps well in the freezer, making it the perfect “emergency dessert” […]

When your kids wake up, do they immediately crave something sweet and heavy – like a sugary, cakey donut? Join the club! While donuts may sound like the best breakfast ever to our kids, they rarely earn a spot on my breakfast table. I use the word “rarely” because I don’t believe in denying my family of […]

Let’s get real for a second. If you put a kale salad on one side of a table and a big tray of chocolate brownies on the other, it’s pretty obvious which side kids will gravitate to. While I try my best to teach my four kiddos the importance of eating good-for-you foods, I still […]

I always like to be prepared. My wonderfully hospitable husband came home one night with nine extra dinner guests on a Friday night (we already had a full house!). No really, nine extra people. After I took a moment to freak out (it was an all out freak out), I got busy whipping up a […]

Growing up, nothing tasted like after-school fun as much as ice pops. In the summer, it was a race against the sun: could you lick them fast enough or would the sunshine melt away the sweet goo? These dairy-free frozen banana pops are the perfect after school treat for kids (and adults too!). The recipe is […]

Life’s little pleasures lie in the simplest of things, like chocolate. These raw chocolate macaroons are a great kids party food, after school snack, or a sneaky treat when you’re craving something sweet. I am even filing these goodies for my Passover menu plans! Karin, mom and nutritionist, uses coconut sugar which ranks lower on the […]

When I first saw these on Lisa’s website I knew I had to make them and share them with you. Because who doesn’t love a doughnut? This week, as we celebrate Chanukah, I am baking up a doughnut storm but you certainly don’t need a holiday excuse to whip up a batch of these gluten-free […]

Gooey, flavorful, light and satisfying. Need I say more? The original inspiration for this recipe came from one of my visits to Canyon Ranch. They serve their version of this bread every morning at their rocking breakfast buffet (I don’t recommend eating this daily, it’s extremely hard to resist). Here is my spiced up gluten-free […]
