Have you smelled the lilacs yet this spring? They smell of gardenias and feisty natural perfume — both musky and angelic. Their horn-like blossom clusters last only two weeks, welcoming in spring with the prettiest visual blast, something like pink cupcakes: coaxing and beckoning upcoming birthdays and special events. These Paleo and AIP cupcakes are well-suited indeed to all things …

Homemade CHOCOLATE CHIPS 6 Ways: chocolate, carob, peanut butter, butterscotch, berry (or fruit), chocolate mint {refined-sugar-free, Paleo/GAPS}

Megan Cooking With Kids, Treats, Whole Food Recipes 13 Comments

I have toyed with/dreamed for years of making my own chocolate chips, ones I could eat, ones that don’t contain refined sugar. I DO have a recipe for some in my cookbook, actually (pgs. 62 and 119). That recipe is amazing; but I pipe out each chocolate chip into the little kiss shape with a pastry bag…and this is not …

I didn’t grow up eating these. But as the weather turned HOT this year I found myself thinking of them… I’m super happy with this recipe. I love the dough, the cookie sandwich dough. It’s got that classic cocoa flavor (pretty dark chocolate) and is really fun to work with. You shape it with your fingers and it’s basically non-stick— easy …

Megan Cooking With Kids, Treats, Whole Food Recipes 35 Comments

This warm-from-the-crock-pot breakfast dish is high in protein and good fat as well as being classic coffeecake— a grain-free version.  Serve with cream cheese frosting or pour cream or raw milk over it. Like bread pudding porridge. It can be made the same day you intend to eat it, taking 2 hours on Low heat to cook slowly. Or placing …
