Chocolate-covered Cherry Macaroons – GF, CF, RSF, DF, Vegan, Raw


I intended to do an anti-candida friendly version of Hail Merry's raw chocolate macaroons. Then, as usual, things took a twist. The fresh cherry provides a tart juiciness that perfectly offsets the dense chewiness of the raw macaroon filling. It's got cherries, chocolate, chia seeds and coconut! Today's recipe is brought to you by the letter "C". :-) Originally I ...

Chocolate Profiteroles – GF, CF, DF, RSF

Chocolate profiterole on plate

It's a rare thing when a gluten-free recipe tastes exactly like the original. Who knew that profiteroles, or cream puffs, would be one of those rare things. :-) I used my modified version of America's Test Kitchen gluten free flour blend. They're light and eggy. They puff up and have the exact same texture as regular ...

Tahdig: Persian Hash Browns – Nightshade-free, GF, CF


I'm so excited to present you with this recipe for Tahdig, or as I think of it, rice hash browns! Yeah, that's where my mind goes when I see a pan-fried salty starch that goes great with a tomato-based sauce. :-) I've been avoiding potatoes for a while. I can handle other nightshades but the white potatoes ...
