Chocolate Espresso Almond Cookies and Xylitol Sweetener Review

These are my most popular cookies I’ve ever created and are continually requested from friends and family. Every single person who has had them asks for a batch again.

Curried Chickpeas and Farro (Oil-free)

I’ve recently discovered the Italian grain Farro and have fallen in love. It has a deeper earthy flavor and greater texture than brown rice, when cooked. Funny though, it’s less crunchy if you eat it raw compared to brown rice, but it has a greater bite to it when cooked. Yes, I tried it before […]

Cinnamon Hazelnut Chocolate Chip Cookies (Flour-free, Gluten-free, Oil-free)

I have a confession….I’m a gluten-free junkie. I’m having such success creating my gluten-free recipes, that I may be doing most, if not all of them, gluten-free going forward. I have found the lack of wheat is giving me slightly better digestion and a flatter tummy. My all time favorite flavor is cinnamon. It has […]
